2/18/09: Today is my 1 year anniversary with spark's and I have lost 54 pounds....!! I am on my way to making my goal.....fantastic...!!

2/12/09: It's been nearly a year since I joined sparks. Today I finally passed the 200# hurtle and I have lost 51 pounds....!!

11/18/08: Nine months ago I joined sparks. Today I met my halfway goal. I've lost 35 pounds.

There has been lots of up's and down's.....but without sparks....the down's would have lasted for months....instead of a few days.

I also changed my diet to include more protein and less carbs. Instead of cheerios, fiber one, and skim milk....I have eggs, cheese, or low-fat meat. I've also been drinking 1.5 liters of diet green tea a day....really helps my fluid count. Every few days I have a tablespoon of peanut butter for a snack....still a favorite treat...!!

My spark's goal was to lose all 70 pounds by January 2009.....I know I won't make that date.....but I'm still going in the right direction and hope I can lose the last 35 pounds this next year......

2/18/08: I'm 63 and a professional yo-yo dieter. Enjoying Sparkpeople...especially all the motivation.

My biggest surprise on Spark' that I HAVE to eat all my calories in order to lose.

I'm a true creature of some of the same meals everyday. Cheerios, Fiber One and skim milk for breakfast. And...I end everyday with whole wheat toast and either one or two tablespoons of peanut butter....depending on how many calories I need to make 1200.

Fingers far it's working !!

    Sue, you are awesome. Thank you for sharing your story on The Gabriel Team Page. And welcome to our team. Your experience
    and mine have been similar. It is so good to find someone who has enjoyed the same benefits from TGM.

    For the first time in my life since I was twelve, I have not regained the weight. I have maintained for over five years with relative ease even though I have had significant life challenges during this time. I am forever grateful to Jon for sharing his wisdom. And I am grateful to you for sharing your successes with us! emoticon
