i'm 38, 5'2" and i've was 115lbs all my adult life, then all in the same year (2008) I lost my mom (+10 lbs), lost my dad (+10 lbs), quit smoking (+10 lbs) and lost my job of 10 years (+10 lbs), an extra +5lbs got thrown in there for good measure, all while the wonderful perk of ones metabolism crossing over from 20's to 30's...

Yes 45 lbs gained in less than a year, and it stayed.

Enough is enough!!! It's time to DO something and get back to my fabulous fierce self!!!

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*

    Yes I saw the movie Thursday night. It was HILARIOUS!! I started a thread on the team page "SATC 2 Dont read if you don't want SPOILERS" after you see the movie you need to check it out. A few of us have weighed in on what we thought of the movie. But GEEZ you are waiting a long time to see it!! I couldn't have held out until Monday. LOL! I was ready to see it again as soon as I walked out of the theater...
