Winning the battle! 18 Months with SP and Proud!

Updated 9/22/2009
Winning the battle of maintaining! Who would have thought that once at your goal the real battle would begin. What a journey! The 5 pound window is no longer the barrier to the outside, it is now the looking glass into wonderland!

Everytime I come back to the low side of my 5 pound window, I learn more and more that my tools learned are allowing me to control my weight. Thank you Sparks! I will never go back to the old me- EVER.

I DID IT! I made my goal. 15 months with Sparks and 86 pounds gone with Sparks. AND, I am now a MOTIVATOR!

Grab life at every chance and be the wind beneath your own wings.

Be strong and ALWAYS BELIEVE!

A year ago I took up the challenge to join Sparks! At first, it was just another gimic, in my mind. But it isn't a gimic, it is a life saving tool that allowed me to LEARN to be healthy, LEARN to trust myself, LEARN how to lose weight, LEARN to LIVE!

Thank you Sparks! Thank you for providing me the tools to TAKE BACK MY LIFE! I am forever thankful.

Life is to short to not be happy! I want to be healthy, live long and love to the fullest

I am healthier at the age of 43 then I have ever been in my life. What a wonderful life I live.

Nov 2008 Update: Just turned 43, and, I am the healthier and smaller than I have been. I have been a size 18-22 for most of my adult life, even bigger but didn't wear anything with a size, just stretched out XXL stuff. I am now a size 6.

I just celebrated 8 months here with Sparks!

I Live, I won!

Hello! I have recently joined the Sonoma county team, but it seems to be inactive. I am looking for some hiking buddies in the area and saw that you're part of the team. I would like to get a group of us together for a hike! Are you in?
