Sun, 4 Dec 2011 07:40:19 EST My kind of team! Hello everyone! So glad to find this SparkTeam as it's quite possibly the biggest reason I would like to lose weight. My personal goal is to make 80% of my wardrobe by the end of 2012, but I don't want to make clothes for the body I am currently living in. <BR> <BR> I'd like to at least get down to 125 lbs, but if I could go lower to 115, that'd be great, too. I'm 5'4", 25 years old, and not a student. Haha. I work part-time at a science and technology library and am an aspiring web designer...

I just wanted to share a major breakthrough that happened to me this evening. I was walking into a store tonight and I saw a chubbier man eating a McDonald's burger.
