Equipped to Succeed Long Term with SparkPeople!

I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high and I've lost over 50 pounds since Dec. 2008. In 2009 I achieved a healthy BMI 25. However, with SparkPeople I was able to achieve the weight I've always wanted, around BMI 21.

It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong.
There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right.
To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

You look great and your story is a real inspiration. I want so much to get this weight off and never gain it back (like I have in the past). With Sparkpeople and stories like yours I have hope!

Hi Marsha,

Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my blog. Your support, particularly as an experienced runner, means so much. I really feel so at home with these runners. It's just exactly what I need at this time of intense sadness and transition in my life.

Hope you are feeling well and that all your family members are too.

Big hugs and thanks,

Julie
