I am BACK! I thought about trying other weight loss apps, but I started rereading my first blog entries from 2006 and 2007 on this site and I got so nostalgic for SparkPeople! I am on my laptop now, which I rarely use these days, but I think it'... Read more

I've been doing Dukan since January 26, so almost three months, and I'm now down 24 pounds. The weight is coming off more slowly now, and my weight loss graph has a lot of little zig zags, but the overall trend is still down. I have a lot of mot... Read more
