Hi Gail! Thanks for adding me as a friend. I can see you're making progress toward you goal, and I want to encourage you to keep up the hard work. I'm maintaining now after losing fifty pounds (you can read my story on my SparkPage, and for more about me, check out my "Oprah" blogs").
I'm considered a resident Tough Talker here at SparkPeople. I'm on a crusade to motivate others to slim down and transform their health. No matter what, don't give up.
I'm also writing a book, "Tough Talk for Permanent Weight Loss: What the Experts Won't Tell You," and post a blog comparing my life as a fat person versus a slim woman, at www.tufftalker.com.
