12/27/2017 I’m enjoying life and the journey started so long ago. I’m 168 now but went back up to 240+ again because I didn’t find ME in the first trip... this time is all ME! Want to drop another 5-10 and continue to maintain. Updated 9/22/2009 Winning the battle of maintaining! Who would have thought that once at your goal the real battle would begin. What a journey! The 5 pound window is no longer the barrier to the outside, it is now the looking glass into wonderland! Everytime I come back to the low side of my 5 pound window, I learn more and more that my tools learned are allowing me to control my weight. Thank you Sparks! I will never go back to the old me- EVER. Updated 6/5/2009 I DID IT! I made my goal. 15 months with Sparks and 86 pounds gone with Sparks. AND, I am now a MOTIVATOR! Grab life at every chance and be the wind beneath your own wings. Be strong and ALWAYS BELIEVE! Updated 3/17/09 - A year ago I took up the challenge to join Sparks! At first, it was just another gimic, in my mind. But it isn't a gimic, it is a life saving tool that allowed me to LEARN to be healthy, LEARN to trust myself, LEARN how to lose weight, LEARN to LIVE! Thank you Sparks! Thank you for providing me the tools to TAKE BACK MY LIFE! I am forever thankful. _______________________________

Life is to short to not be happy! I want to be healthy, live long and love to the fullest I am healthier at the age of 43 then I have ever been in my life. What a wonderful life I live. Nov 2008 Update: Just turned 43, and, I am the healthier and smaller than I have been. I have been a size 18-22 for most of my adult life, even bigger but didn't wear anything with a size, just stretched out XXL stuff. I am now a size 6. I just celebrated 8 months here with Sparks! I Live, I won!

    WOW you've had amazing weight loss. Are you at goal? Do you have one single standout tip that you could share with me? I want to start losing weight to match the changes I've made but I keep circling the same numbers on the scale.
