The 50 pounds I put back on have not really left me. They fluctuate between 40 to 50 pounds. I just can't shake it. So I knew I could do it when I was in my 30's and I kept it off for some time... but life got in the way... so I am working on losing 48 pounds by my birthday.

I am leaving my information from back when I lost 50 pounds. This is because I need a reminder of what an amazing attitude I had then. I had so much energy and I was on the go with gusto... now I am back with those 50 pounds. I am determined to do it again. So I am on the way to being that excited happy person again.
I am Amy from Texas. I used to lose weight for all the wrong people and reasons. Now, I am losing it for myself. I have taken off 45 pounds. I don't want to say lost 45 pounds because I don't want them back LOL...Please do not find them for me. They will attack anyone they find...they are armed and dangerous.

I am a energetic person, wife to an amazing husband and mom to three great kids. I enjoy my renewed sense of happiness. My healthy living changes have changed more than my dress size. They have changed "ME". I am a healthy person mentally, physically and emotionally. I have learned so much from Sparks.
Come join me on the great journey of healthy living and happy days.

I have been a Spark member since Feb. 2006. I started to actually lose weight though July 2006. I did great for two years. Then I thought that I don't need to stay active on Sparks and the treadmill. Now...I am trying to stay focused so I don't gain all that weight back. I am learning that it isn't hard to lose the is hard to maintain the weight.

I am going to try to take the unlucky 13 pounds off slowly over the next few months...a little here and a little there.

The Biggest Loser Challenge is looking for members for it’s next Challenge starting the first week of June. The challenge consists of 11 Teams, that participate in 10 weeks of Nutritional and Fitness Challenges.

    Here are some of the members comments written on a Survey Monkey poll:

    “It helps me stay focused on my goals. It also keeps things interesting and not boring.”

    “I find that the challenges make me be more cognizant of my food intake, better choices etc. The fitness ones encourage me to try new exercises and to keep doing exercises. I think there is a good possibility I wouldnt do as much if I didnt track it for challenges or tried to do better on challenges”

    “My leaders are all wonderful...they stay in touch with team members and do their best to keep us involved and feeling a part of the team.”

    “They motivate me to eat healthier and to be more active. “
