For my old friends, and anyone new who finds my sparkpage,

I am now 55 I started on SP in 2009, and used it religioiusly until I fell off the wagon, soon after I found another site I liked and haven't been around much.

Not much has changed, I have gained back all but 15 of the 53 pounds I lost starting in 2011. But I never stopped trying, I've kept my jogging going, but let my food get out of control.

I live and work in China. And during the winter, I routinely watch Biggest Loser and think, I should do that.

A couple years ago, I started on SP, lost 30# (needed to lose 100#) and kept it off for more than a year, but never got back on track.

In Dec 2011, my kids challenge me to do a family Biggest Loser contest with them... that got me fired up and in year I was down below 300# for the first time in five years. But now, I'm back at 334#.

I am working to get myself to 220# before my 55th birthday which will occur in July 2015.

I have big goals for this year, I want to run the Great Wall 1/2 marathon, a 10k this summer, and break 30:00 on a 5k some time this year. Just want to break 30:00.

I now weigh (1-7-2014) 344.5# , and it's time to get working again.
