July 2013
I have some friends who are joining with me in a quest to lose 50lbs (or more) and we are using Julia Cameron's book _The Writing Diet: Writing to Right Size_ .

I have been almost dormant on SP, but I think it will help me to use the tracking to get more diligent.

I get so much inspiration from you all. There's always someone telling an amazing story.

January 2012

Now that my birthday is past, I reset my weight goal. For now, though I decided to focus on getting stronger and eating well and to forego weighing. We will see how that works. I haven't yet thought of a good title for my page, so leaving The Fifty title.

Thanks for visiting my page.

December 2011.

Wow! I set the 50 lbs by the 5oth birthday goal before I read The Spark. I saw that others had goals on their pages and it seemed like a good idea. Here it is December and I have a pound to go to make this goal. WooHoo. SparkPeople has been extremely helpful to me. I have plenty more weight to lose, but for now I am celebrating this amazing gift SparkPeople and I have made for my upcoming bithday! Thanks everyone for your support.

April 2011 -- I am embarking on an odyssey to lose 50 pounds before I turn 50 years old this December.
