Hi! I'm SD, 42 years old, divorced, mother of three, living in Jerusalem, Israel. I love SparkPeople! I'm looking for a healthier lifestyle for me and my kids (and the cat, too).

Update 3: As of September 30, lost 30% of my starting weigh: 74 pounds lost.

Update 2: As of June 15, I've officially reached the halfway mark: 55 pounds lost.

Update: My middle daughter had her bat mitzvah at the end of May, and I was pleased to be able to lose 40 pounds and buy a nice outfit.

Please note: my weight-loss ticker is in kilos.

    Shalom! I see you live in Israel. When I reach my goal weight, my reward is going to be to take a trip there (I Iive in the U.S.)!! I CAN'T WAIT! I have about 26 pounds to go until I get there. How do you like living there? If you have any advice for me on what to see when I go, I would love to hear it. :)
    Looks like you have done extremely well here on Spark. Way to go!!

    It actually does feel amazingly better to not weigh so much! Although I can't stand looking at pictures of my old self now! I can't believe I used to look like that!

    Ooh, the group starts tomorrow! How exciting. =)
