I need to lose a total of 84 lbs to get to my goal weight of 136. I did it before and will be able to do it again.

I am an IT professional in the Chicago suburbs. I have a great husband and awesome teenage daughter. We have 2 cats and many parakeets.

Well, I have lost 7 lbs so far (8.33%) ... that leaves
77 more to go!

My Goals:
* Lose 84 lbs
* Be more active
* Combat emotional eating
want to get back to 145 by May 21st.

I want to be able to wear my old interview clothes.

I want to have a healthy BMI before New Years 2011.

I want to get back into my size 8s. FOREVER!

My Program:
* Stop eating after 7 pm
* Write down everything I eat

Personal Information:
Divorced mom since Jan, 2002. 1 beautiful daughter who is 13 ... I'm a Business Analyst currently but changed careers at the beginning of the year - my old company closed & our programming jobs got offshored. I ahve 2 Masters degrees.

I have about 80 lbs to lose... I was actually at my goal weight back in 2002 but have since rode the divorce/job layoffs/relationships rollercoaster & gained it back -- sigh! I was back to the 150s in February 2006 before my old employer closed! Then, my job got offshored AGAIN in May 08 and I gained about 15 lbs. Joy! Then I gained the rest after I was turned down for being my dad's liver donor in November, 2009.

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
