September of 2009. I discovered it was time I could lose some weight. My daughter had told me about SparkPeople and I decided to try it. I still can't believe how easy it was to lose the first 35 pounds! With portion control and scheduled exercise, I was able to successfully begin this journey. Then in March of 2010 I hit THE PLATEAU.......and I've been there ever since. Up a few pound, down a few. Yes, I've gotten discouraged, but I've kept at it. Log into Spark every morning, count the calories, ride the exercycle, do the exercises, count more calories. I'm in this for the long haul.
