Geek at work LOL It was really cold that day. I think I need more hats.

Shared Food Tracker
I have been overweight my ENTIRE life. I have gone up and down, back and forth. Over the last several months, I have been backsliding and stalled, but I am now back on track. My beautiful partner, Rhonda, is helping me, supporting me, and loving me through this process. We are seeking and finding ways to stay motivated! (And we are getting married in May 2016 now that we are able to legally do so!)
I would like to lose 100 pounds this year. With God at my side and with Rhonda's support and encouragement, I know I can do it. I just have to stick to my plan. I didn't used to count calories but now I do since joining SP! I try to eat lots of fruits, veggies, chicken and turkey and stay away from fried foods, junk foods, and baked goods.
Walking is hard due to severe arthritis in my knees. I still have a long way to go but have lost 150 pounds so far! I have been away from Spark People for a while but we are back in full force.
I enjoy writing, photography, travel, video games, and most of all, spending time with Rhonda. I work full time as a quality assurance medical manager.

Spatz and Spunky are both adorable -- I absolutely LOVE dogs; however since my old dog had to be put down we have a cat that will not accept a new dog, so right now I am putting up with the emptiness in my life. Perhaps I will do some volunteer time at a shelter to help fill it.
Thank you for commenting on my blog. I, too, gained some over the holidays but not due to partying, I think it was just that there was less chance to exercise, and that really makes an impact on where the scale is for me.

Praying for a wonderful blessed week ahead for you and all my SPARK FRIENDS. Do the very best you can to make healthy decisions each day, one day at a time.
Haven't seen you around SPARKPEOPLE and am hoping you are just busy and not gone. Looking to hear from you soon.
