Third tricker was when I lost my mother on my Birthday, March 10,04, while holding her in my arms.
I heard about Sparkpeople on TV. I like what I saw and read. The people I've met on Sparkpeople and the Sparkpeople Teams are awsome.
I love how I can keep track of all my goals without the hassle. Especially how I can plan my meals.
I have been on a yoyo mostly due to health problems but now that I know what Sparkpeople can do for me and how helpful everyone are there is no stopping me.
Thanks everyone for your support.
