I started using spark in 2011 even though I signed up in 2010. I began at 197 lbs. I also faced a meniscus tear in a knee that was repaired successfully. This SCARED me into putting my health first. I was terrified of immobility.
I reached 140 lb. goal by my weigh in on January 31st/2012...lb.
LATEST UPDATE: I reached my goal weight of 135 lbs. by my 60th milestone. (August 21, 2016.)

Since then I am in maintenance mode.(55 pounds kept off, still working on getting the last 10 which was a gain this year gone.) Keeping my MOVEMENT consistent, challenging myself to reach FURTHER outside of my comfort zone, & be aware of the food choices & portions I eat are a combined part of my healthy living EVERY day...Living, laughing & LOVING LIFE is the BEST benefit this journey has given me. Reach for your DREAMS...they are attainable!!!!
