Keep looking UP!
The scale has never been a 'friend' to me, so what I do is take a photo from time to time.
The first month, I took a photo (from my web cam) every day. It is really fascinating to watch these photos in high speed as I shrink! Helps me to understand the changes I would go through if the trend was reversed!
Photos are posted on my Google Blog which you can visit at:

This very PUBLIC accountability tool has been helpful on keeping me focused on this journey.
I try to provide a lot of useful information about bariatric surgery (from a personal perspective, and tons of other information I have found on the web, Spark (I give credit!), articles and books. Check it out, you might find something fun!


Member Since: 5/13/2011

Fitness Minutes: 4,320

My Goals:
After top weight, my desire is finally feel normal again.
To feel free to say YES! when asked to go on a walk, travel in a plane, or go horseback riding without worrying about how long the walk is, how I will fit in the airplane seat, or have sad feelings about the POOR HORSE!


My Program:
After ovarian cancer and starting healthy eating choices, I reached and plateaued after losing 60 pounds. So had Bariatric Surgery, and at last I feel in control over what I put in my mouth. This surgery does make it easier, thank heavens!
But surgery by itselfwon't work without FOCUS.
I joined Spark People to maintain focus. Hypoglycemia, Couchpotatoitis, and Hypertension concern me, so I have entered several programs to address those.



Personal Information:
Born in Canada, I lived in Pittsburgh PA for 10 years. Now I am living in Toronto, Ontario, am 61, retired, cancer free, and with the rest of my life ahead of me, I want to live it WELL!


Other Information:
Have loved travel and visited 13 countries on 5 different continents. Loved visiting all different cultures, which is great, because Toronto is the most multi-cultural city in the world.

    My Christmas Wish For You
    My Christmas wish for you, my friend
    Is not a simple one
    For I wish you hope and joy and peace
    Days filled with warmth and sun

    I wish you love and friendship too
    Throughout the coming year
    Lots of laughter and happiness
    To fill your world with cheer

    May you count your blessings, one by one
    And when totaled by the lot
    May you find all you've been given
    To be more than what you sought

    May your journeys be short, your burdens light
    May your spirit never grow old
    May all your clouds have silver linings
    And your rainbows pots of gold

    I wish this all and so much more
    May all your dreams come true
    May you have a Merry Christmas friend
    And a happy New Year, too .. Hugs, Rose
