I am still in awe at how easy it was for me to lose weight while being connected with sparkfriends. The encouragement that I received and the support were amazing. And my results so far are amazing to me. I have lost 50 pounds since joining Sparkpeople in November 2009. I just turned 62 on April 25th, and I feel fantastic.
I have been struggling all of my teenage and adult life with my weight. I have always been overweight by 50 or more pounds at a time. I was never able to lose the weight, no matter what diet I went on or even if I starved myself. Here at Sparkpeople I have learned how to EXERCISE. This has always been a bad word in my book. I hated to do it. Now I have found that with some support and encouragement from a great community of sparkfriends, I can do it. Thank you Sparkfriends! I could not have done it without you. I hope I can be an encouragement and support for your journey to losing weight too. I'm on my way to even a healthier me and skinnier me too. Another 25 pounds to go! Sparkpeople Rock!
