I lost 71 pounds in 2009. In 2012 I gained 8 and was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Since then I have been getting proper medication and adjustments and have lost 3.

Thanks to SP and my various team mates I have learned how to deal with these life curves rather than giving in to them and eating myself chubby.

In February 2009 it was time for me to make some major changes in my life, healthwise but it felt like I was only treading water and needed some help. That's when someone told me about SparkPeople.

And, sparks flew, so to speak because things started clicking and I started losing weight and learning how to modify my food intake to make all my goals to change possible.

Exercise? Not until I figured out it was necessary to get healthy.

So, my determination to get and stay healthy forever has only been possible to achieve with SparkPeople.

Lipservice doesn't make for change. Only fork down and activity up does.
