Hello Friends! Thanks for stopping by my page. In November of 2009, I hit ONEderland, a.k.a 199 lbs. What a GREAT feeling it was! I bought size 16 jeans and felt like a diva! Yes, a size 16 made me feel like a diva! Well, in those 9 years, I have lost and gained the same 35 lbs or so a few different times. So here I am.... again...back at it! (Spring 2018) You're only unsuccessful if you quit for good, right? I have lost about 33 lbs since last summer (2017) and have been doing low carb and intermittent fasting on most days (which means narrowing the window of time in which i eat during the day). At the end of March, I went from low carb to Keto, and am tracking my carbs fairly faithfully. I hit ONEderland again for the first time in 9 years, so I am pumped about that. I tend to do Spark People in spurts, depending on the amount of time I have. I do love this site. Blessings to you all! Keep fighting for your health!

I am doing the Keto diet as of March 2018, after switching from Low carb.

    Thank you! I had no idea I was "in the spotlight" yesterday. It was my youngest son's 13th birthday and I let him stay home from school and we spent the whole day together just hanging out. I didn't even get on the computer at all. Today I log in and see all this. Wow, cool! Best to you on reaching your goals!
