the time I've had with Sp before my daughter's wedding. I'm not bragging but it sure felt good to get so many compliments on how healthy I look. Maybe I'm bragging a little about this-- but I sure liked the look on the much younger woman face my husband left me for. Time hasn't been quit as kind to her as its been for me. Karma. I myself was very kind and at such peace with me. Thanks Sparks emoticon

Its fun to accumulate sparkpoints. However, I find that with reading the articles, health news, and message boards, my motivation to lose weight has increased tremendously. After two months I have lost 20 lbs and even though I have plateaued a couple of times, I keep with the diet.

Thanks spardpeople.
