You got this. It might be slow but you can do it. Go to the SPARK BLOGS. There is a lovely lady there called INDYGIRL. Read some of her blogs. I have been very fortunate to have met this lovely lady. After reading some of her posts you will understand why I suggested her.

emoticon As you said this is a GREAT place for motivation and support to reach whatever goal you and your doctor have set for you.

I hope you were joking about the cat tax!

emoticon Spark People is probably the only weight loss website people can go to that have 100 pounds or more that doesn't try to fit a person into a "mold" of charts, graphs, BMI calculations or outdated "what you should weigh" insurance written guidelines for height, weight, and age. (or snarky dooms day posters who say "you can't do it"). emoticon

I have 99 pounds to loose. My first goal is to lose 50. (maybe less, I haven't weighed in today). My husband and I plan on dancing it off. We live in the Portland Oregon area. We were trying to find other Spark-people who are members of Baby-boomers Social (dance) club, in the Portland, Metro area. emoticon

We are renting and planning on moving out of Portland, and Multnomah County to Beaverton , Milwaukie, or maybe even Vancouver, WA. (yes, to ditch the Art Tax, and the new repair the roads tax, and the hidden cat tax) emoticon

Yikes. I might as well get started
