Alcohol and Weight Loss
Lily and Karen spill the beans on the stunning results of a recent survey of just how many calories we American consume from alcohol. You might think twice before sipping after they tell you how many pounds even one drink a day can add in a year!

Hi, I love these two ladies and I listen to them all the time....many times while I exercise on my treadmill or stationary bike. Back in Sept I had a fallen in a rut and needed the push to keep up with my fitness minute, I read a on the message board a comment where the member said she looks at her weight loss as a road trip....she said: "because you find a detour close to your destination you don't return home" That click with me, I started a virtual trip, since I have plenty to loose I choose to go from FL to CA and I do not know anyone in CA so I choose to visit Lily. She was really supportive of my idea. Since I started my walk I have recorded 252 miles (I haven't left FL yet) but I have inspired 2 other ladies that we communicate through out our teams started their own "Trip". Visit my spark page to see check out my progress.
