Hi all - I am a chubby female in my mid-50's and live in Florida. My weight loss journey started in Sept 2010 at WeightWatchers.com. I joined the program at 187.5 pounds and lost 15 pounds by Thanksgiving.

I was doing well on WeightWatchers until the new plan debuted after Thanksgiving last year. After that, my average 1-1/2 lb weekly losses completely stalled. Frustrated after my fourth weigh-in on Dec 23, I went looking for another option.

Several of the online WW members were recommending SparkPeople.com so I decided to check it out. I loved all the information on the site and the Nutrition Tracking Tool was exactly what I had wanted in WW. I wanted complete nutrition information and not just carbs, fat, protein and fiber.

I've been on SP for almost three weeks now and have already lost 2.5 lbs. More importantly, I'm eating better than ever and getting in a lot more exercise. I also love how friendly and supportive everyone is on the message boards.

I look forward to seeing you around the site!

Hi Clair,

I want to thank you for your detailed comments on the Menopause Quiz. I'm 49 (soon to be 50) and about a year ago I really felt I was losing my mind (as in, "Where did it go?"). I had some perimenopausal tests done, and they found a really low FSH level. Because that can mean cysts, then I had an expensive MRI done. Which revealed nothing (okay, so I was relieved with the outcome, but NOT the bill). My brain has calmed down now, on occasion I take St. John's Wort which calms me down from anxiety. I am thankful that you shared your feelings, especially the mental ones; that helps me feel I was right in thinking that I was beginning to experience perimenopausal symptoms. P.S. My mom had a hysterectomy, so I can't ask about her menopausal experience, and I'm the oldest female in the family, so there is no one older to "pow-wow" with.

Thanks again,
Laurie emoticon

Hi Clair,
Thanks for stopping by my page! I am glad to hear I am not the only one that loves soup for breakfast. You have a very cute dog and grandsons!

Keep warm in this weather.

Take care!

Good Morning, Clair! Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on my Flylady blog. You and I are new Flybabies. I am enjoying the results of what I'm learning from Flylady. Yes, there is a Flylady: Peace is Mine team on Sparkpeople. That's how I found out about Flylady. Go to my page if you want and click on that team to access it. Happy flying!
