Update (11/8/13): I passed 100 pounds lost this week! Running is getting a little easier and more enjoyable, too. I have another 30-40 pounds left to go to a healthy weight, but I'll never be done working to stay that way.

Update (9/2/13): I have lost 83.5 pounds from my start weight in February. Even better is that I have really changed my lifestyle. I still have about 50 pounds to lose, but I know that I will continue to get healthier, stronger, and more fit.

(2/2013): I need to lose a lot of weight and get in shape to be healthy. Unfortunately, I've been down this road before. I lost over 100 pounds in 2001-2002 and was within 10 pounds of my final goal. Somehow, I managed to find all the weight that I'd lost along with a few more for good measure. I never thought I'd be here again, looking down that long road to a healthy weight.

    Looking for a Fun Challenge this Summer? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle. If yes, then consider joining the BL Challenge that starts early June. Each week 11 teams of 24 Active, do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle and If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Spring we had Gardening Time, Help Fill Peter Rabbit’s Basket and Bingo. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Summer challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon, or copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat.

    SparkPeople offers a world of potential and amazingly generous support and sharing of knowledge and experience.

    Sadly my time with our local team has not been what it was as we used to pull together lots of cool events such as walks, runs, kayaking and even contradance.

    While I'm open to attempting such events together again, I would have to see more interest on the part of others, perhaps new members such as yourself? ;-)

    In the meantime I highly recommend posting blogs on your SparkPage and questions for SparkPeople message boards to get the most from our SparkFamily!
