    M is for MOTIVATION...Which gives you more, Mirror or Scale?: I'll tell you when I lose enough weight to get any motivation.
    N is for NAME...What's the meaning behind your sparkname?: A play on words. Slim in English means "trim, or slender". In Afrikaans it means "clever". My name is Toni, and my family call me "Tones". So, I'm clever/slender Toni. :)
