Chris, Sydney and Spencer in Victoria
I joined SP January 2008 with 170 lbs to lose. I have recently been diagnosed with low thyroid and started taking medication. I also have arthritis and fibromyalgia. Exercising is difficult for me, so weight loss is usually painfully slow, and I tend to give up. However, that was then, this is now and I'm determined to go into the sunset in as good a shape as possible.
The kids in the picture are my grandkids, taken at Butchart Gardens in Victoria, BC. Middle picture is me presenting money to RCMP Corporal Mike Stevenson for Cops for Cancer bike ride. Last picture is me (brave soul) on the beach in Victoria.
I live in Prince George, BC where there is 2 feet of snow on the ground right now, and an ice jam on the river, causing huge flood problems.
My immediate goal is to control my evening eating. I can do well all day, but find my downfall is snacking after supper.
I'm going to start by eating every second time I have the urge, and sticking to healthy snacks.
I live in Prince George, in the central interior of British Columbia. I am a fan of gory murder mysteries and historical novels. I have 2 sons, both happily married, and three grandchildren. I have been married to the same man for 43 years.

I LOVE your username! It has a ring to it, and the CHILLI part evokes pictures of the great white north!
I saw a post you did on the Let's Talk thread on Team300lbs Plus, and I got curious, and came out to check your sparkpage! You are doing very nicely on your weight loss, what with your scarring in your lymph system. I'm really happy your pants are fitting differently now!
I battled lymphedema at one time, and almost lost my leg (and my life from a strep infection in my blood) so I know how nasty it can get! But that ticker of yours is movin' right along!
I'm going to check out your blogs now, so I'll talk to you later, OK?
