Joined SP in July 2009 when I realized that I needed help to lose weight.

After living in TX for more than 15 years, we moved to NoCAL last year. The stress of moving, starting a new job, dealing with repairs on the new house and having old, sick dogs really got me off track as far as my overall health.

Joined SP in July 2009 when I realized that I needed help to lose weight.

After living in TX for more than 15 years, we moved to NoCAL last year. The stress of moving, starting a new job, dealing with repairs on the new house and having old, sick dogs really got me off track as far as my overall health. During the summer of 2009, I had a minor medical issue that took me to the MD several times over a few weeks and it was noted that my BP was high. It's never been high in my life!! I decided right then to get my health in order. After doing some on-line research, I joined SP near the end of July.

Thanks so much for the comment on my blog and for the goodie. Eating after work seems to be a big problem for me. I should do what you said and maybe make a bunch of salads and keep them in the fridge to tide me over till supper. Looks like your doing great! emoticon

Thanks for the comment you left on my SparkPage. I'm glad you like my thought for the day. Yes, I've lost more than 50 pounds, but I seem to be at a standstill since the first of the year. I need to get to more exercise.

How are you doing? It looks like you're making progress too. Keep it up.

Happy New Year! Glad to see you have recently joined SP and the Geocaching team. I think you are in great company! I joined back in May and do like you do. I enter all my nutrition info and all my fitness info. The teams are great. You can get lots of support there. Let me know if there is anything I can to help you stay on track.
