I first signed up on Sparkpeople on October 2007. I started back on Sparkpeople January 2010.

I have been working on shedding weight for years. in 2007 I dropped down to 162 lbs (from 180s) but then received a diagnosis of Celiac Disease and had to make major changes to my diet. After that I gained 20+ lbs in a few months. Since then I keep shedding the same 5-10 lbs only to gain them back plus more. Hopefully I can get myself back on track. To do this I need to journal my foods and get my eating under control!

In May of 2016 I had a right knee replacement and spent a few months recovering and doing physio. My knee is doing very well now.

It is 2017 and I am ready to get back into shape and have more control with food. To be successful this year I will need to get my eating under control, get to the gym on a more regular basis. I also need to walk my dogs daily.

I joined a 50 day challenge at a bootcamp facility on January 21. I can go to 4 bootcamp classes a week. They also provided a food plan focusing on eating properly and enough food to fuel the body.

I am looking forward to the support and to making 2017 a successful year!

    They have changed the way a leader can contact members of the team. If you are not active on a team for 30 days are more a team leader can not send you a spark goodie I do not think you will receive messages from the team either but I have not received a confirmation on that. However, the changes will make it less and less likely I will be able to communicate with less active members. At this point we only have 6 active members 4 of which have visited the team because I was able to contact them recently. I feel these changes have thrown up one more obstacle to helping build the team. I will see how things go over the next couple of weeks but I may end up ending the team in the event the members fall to 2 or less active members. Thanks for your continued support.

The Take 3 challenge is posted in the challenge section at the Daily Spaker. I set up a chat thread where we can chat and report on our goal progress. Goodies will be rewarded.
