Hi there! Michele here. I was on a journey to lose weight (again) for the big wedding day. My goal was to lose 40 pounds, and although I didn't hit the goal, I was happy to lose 32.8 pounds. It felt great. But I'm still on the mission to lose those last 7.2!! I've made great friends through SP over the years (I joined in 2004 but got really active in 2005) and together, we support each other and cheer and share our ups and downs.

Member Since: 5/1/2004

Fitness Minutes: 24,881

My Goals:
Getting there and STAYING there. It's a battle, but with God's help, I am there!

My Program:
Doing Weight Watchers alongside Sparkpeople. I lost a good amount (over 60 pounds) with SP before, but have managed to gain quite a bit back. This time, I've got to figure out this maintenance thing.

Personal Information:
I've been doing this for a while. When I started this, I was in the midst of a divorce. That seems like a LONG time ago. I am now the single mom of a very happy, active, 7 year-old son! I live in the Los Angeles area and have been battling with weight loss for as long as I can remember. I once lost a lot of weight (and my menstrual cycle) by eating one piece of lettuce every day hahahah... then when I started eating two pieces, I gained it all back because my body had gone into starvation mode :)
