Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances of survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)



Hi, my name is Shelley. I am 62 years old. I started SP January 2007 at 240 lbs. Prior to joining SP I had lost 45 lbs. Yes that's right my highest weight was 285 lbs. Yuck! I now have lost 105 lbs total..

I have been gone (off of spark people for a very long time). I have since had a major stroke which has left my left side as nonworking. My left knee overextends backwards now. I have to use a walker cane to walk around

I kept exercising and lost a few pounds, but I am stalled at 180 lbs. I love Spark People and don't know why I ever left. I now realized I just can't do it on my own any longer. I need help, motivation and support. I am back!!!!!!!
