I am sheepishly returning to SP after being away for over a year. I've gained about half of my weight back and am having to start over from ground zero. I'm here because I don't know where else to go. I remember how much support I received her... Read more

It is amazing what you can accomplish with the right frame of mind. I have been away for much too long. And, I feel it all over... in my body, in my mind, and in my soul. The few times that I have visited Spark over the past months was to visit ... Read more
