In October 2010 I made the decision to get healthy. I was able to join Kaiser Permanente's Weightloss Management Program, that allowed me to use shakes, soups and bars to take the stress out of choices for eating. And Kaiser isn't even my healthcare provider (LOL) Blue Cross is and they took me in the program (amen).

At the same time, it helped cure me of food addictions (scones & other sweets) as well as food I'm allergic to that is bad for my health (wheat, corn, milk, gluten, ...

I'm now eating 'regular' food and am quite successful thanks to the support and tools found on SparkPeople. I tell everyone about this site.

SparkPeople has helped me track my progress and all the posts, blogs, articles have provided such great motivation. Thank you to everyone that contributes to this site and my success. I was/am lucky I had the Kaiser Program as my jumpstart but major kudos to all of you that just made the mindset I'm doing it. You are all an inspiration to me.

Thank you again!

Personal Information:
Here I am in sunny San Jose (Silicon Valley) California since 1990 with my Bulldog, Amara. I am a software implementation consultant (yes I do get to work from home each day - in my pajamas).

My motto (as it has been since I was younger) is to try everything life has to offer -- okay within reason. As a result, I have stood on a glacier in Alaska and drank possibly million year old water, attended a 3-day visit/discussion by the Dali Lama, was chased by a 2 ton elephant seal at Ano Nuevo Beach, backpacked & climbed Half Dome in the full moon, hiked ancient Anasazi Indian ruins in New Mexico, stayed with my father's family in Ireland, snorkeled with with the humpback whales off the Islands of Niue & Tahiti in the South Pacific and swim each year in the ocean with the spinner dolphins off the Kona coast on the Big Island of Hawai'i.

I'm all about EXTREME FUN! Extreme not weird! :o)

Hope you're all have an EXTREMELY FUN life too!

Congratulations on your progrss keep up the great work, awesome that you've loss fifty pounds. I see that you're a part of the SF team so am I just to let you know we don't have a team leader and it would be great if we all commented on the board so we could possible save the team or if we could get someone who is in charge enough to take over the team, if you know of anyone that would be great. Keep up the awesome work of self care. emoticon emoticon
