I started the 17 day diet on February 11, 2013. I was on maintenance from July 14, 2013 until February 1, 2014. I had gained a couple of pounds after the holidays and surgery, and decided to try to lose a few more pounds and try to get to the goal weight I had chosen when I started this. I got down to 165 and was stuck there for so long, that I figured my body was telling me that was it. I was also on prednisone at the time, and have since been completely weaned off that, so am hoping that this time around I can get to that elusive 160. I have Sjogren's Syndrome and RA and have been taking Methotrexate for 16 months and it seems to be working pretty well. I started the 17 day diet after hearing about a close friend's success with it. She also has RA, and noticed after the first cycle of the diet that she had relief from her inflammation and pain.

I love Sparkpeople, it has such great information and the Nutrition page rivals Weightwatchers, and the price (FREE) is really outstanding!

Thanks SP!

My Goals:
GOAL MET!!! My current goal is to MAINTAIN!

My Program:
Currently I am using the 17 Day Diet, supplementing with Advocare MNS3 and Thermoplus, daily walks and some weightlifting to tone up the flab.

Personal Information:
I am a 48 year old mother of two beautiful daughters. I have 4 fur-kids (as my youngest daughter calls them), and 8 fur-grandkids. I am an accountant for the local PBS station and am married to an accountant/accounting professor.

Other Information:
My husband and I love going to the movies. I love action adventure, sci-fi and romance movies best. I can't really name a "favorite" movie, there are just too many that I love.

I also love to watch TV. Big Bang Theory and Modern Family are my favorites right now. I also like Psych, NCIS, Justified, Mike & Molly, and Chuck. There are several others, but those are my faves at the moment!

I love to read, the Dragonriders of Pern books by Anne McCaffery are my all time favorite. I also love good mystery books. I am currently reading Cat & Mouse by James Patterson. I love his Alex Cross character. It is amazing to me how much they changed his character in those movies. Along Came a Spider isn't even the same plot! Except for the names... which I suppose they had to keep the same to protect the guilty. LOL

I love all kinds of music... in fact, I really wanted to go see the Black Eyed Peas when they were in town, and my oldest daughter couldn't believe i

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.
