Been on spark since April 4, 2007! Have tried a number of times to get the weight off. My weight report looks like a roller coaster ride but today I’ve lost 80 lbs AND my cholesterol is great for the first time in years! ALSO I went from an 18W to a size 6!!! I’m a medium not an XXL anymore!!!!!!!! HOW I DID THIS!!! I strictly followed a Whole Foods Plant Based diet - WFPBNO - it is a very healthy way of eating!! I recommend googling fork over knives - dr John Mcdougall - Eat to Live Dr Furhman - An average day I eat oatmeal with walnuts banana and 1 tbs real maple syrup Lunch and dinners I make many different things but they include things like sweet potato - white potato - quinoa - all kinds of veggies - cooked or raw - or cooked and raw - lots of different fruits - I eat lots of garbanzo kidney and black beans - for my fats it’s nuts or avocado but NO OIL ever!! Do your research discover recipes you love and enjoy your health!! PS I’m never hungry

    I have found the rewards very useful. I did 5 lbs as an initial and every 10 lbs until my goal. I like it--I really look forward to each milestone and have some good stuff picked out. You should definately try it! Thanks for the blog comment!

    Welcome to the parents of special needs kids site! I think it is great that someone started the group, because we have a type of stress that only we can understand. It is so different when it is your child that you have to watch going through the stuff. If you ever need to talk - please feel free to sparkmail me. Good luck on your journey to loose your weight.
