Hi all -

I think the two year thing is amazing! I never thought when I joined back then that this would become such a part of my life.

In two years I have lost 35 pounds. And then I gained 10 back, but then lost it again, then gained a few of those back - but basically it is safe to say that I have been maintaining in the 170s when I started at over 200! And while my present maintenance struggles are frustrating, man I am happier to be at this point then where I was.

In that time I have also dropped 1 or 2 pants sizes, learned how to cook a great deal more, discovered that spinach wasn't gross, quit drinking Diet Coke like it was my job, and learned to run!

My official start date was also 2/14! Remember how many people were on our boards back then? I feel proud that we have stuck with it. You guys all impress me so much - I really mean it!!

Yesterday was my official 2 year Sparkversary and although these last few months have been really tough, I am thrilled with how far I've come.

I've essentially lost half myself in two years - and I don't miss that half at all! emoticon

Now I need to stay focused, push through this injury and get back in the game and get to goal!

emoticon everyone for making it 2 years or however long you've been here. Beachdreams, at least you found out what makes you gain and now you have more info to not let it happen in the future when you're with your sister. If I only gained 4 pounds in a month from being around my family in the past it would have been awesome. The only way I can keep from gaining weight while living here with my mother now was to become vegan hahaha! It has saved me from a great many pounds over the holidays and parties since moving back from IL.

I love Spark, and I am proud of us!

I did great with maintenance till my sister stayed with me a month--don't ever underestimate the power of those around you to influence your choices! But it was just 4 pounds, and it's back on the way down. ANd I'm actually glad to have gotten reconnected with Spark--this time more healthy eating focus than ever before, and a real commitment to reducing (eliminating, for a while) sweets!

Happy Anniversary to us! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Gregg! Congrats on your successful two years. I think we've all probably dealt with some set-backs and emotional eating - seems to be part of life. But it's great that we all keep coming back and keep working towards our goals.

Happy emoticon !

I joined on the 10th and lost 45lbs. so far. I gained a few after that and have 45 more to lose. I know I will do it this year. I've gotten myself more in focus on how to care for myself and not worry about what others are doing around me. After 51 years it's all ME time emoticon

2 years ago today I started on SP without knowing what I was doing. Today I have kept off 25kgs from my then weight and had lost a total of 35 kg but put 10 kg back on in a period of depression and that was not good. I am back to losing weight again and hope to continue down the tract to healthier living and smaller sizes. I am pleased with my progress and realise that losing weight too soon is not good for a permanent result.

Thanks SP and the class of of February 10-16 especially that joined the same day, February 12.

Cheers and love to you all... Gregg
