Hello from Texas!!!

My name is Gayle and I've just joined SparkPeople. I found out about it from someone on the HealthyWeightForum.org site. I weigh about 230 lbs now and I'm working toward 130-140. I'm a full time graduate student. I'm single with 3 furry babies (cats), a bird, some hermit crabs, and fish. I guess you can tell I like animals. I was a skinny kid, but I've been overweight on and off since my twenties. I'm ready to get this weight off and be healthy again. I love to go camping and hiking, especially ...

I was a skinny kid, but I've been overweight on and off since my twenties. I'm ready to get this weight off and be healthy again. I love to go camping and hiking, especially backpacking to remote campsites as opposed to car-camping. I haven't been in shape for backpacking for quite some time. I want to get back to that and be able to do the things I like to do. I'm really glad to be a new member of this site. I'll post a before picture soon, then a halfway picture, and finally a glorious AFTER picture!!! I know I can do this!!

My Goals:
My goal is to get back in shape and to be able to do the things I used to do. I like to hike and backpack, but I've been too heavy to do those things for quite some time now. I'm tired of being this way and I'm changing it.

My Program:
Vegetarian diet. Eggs and dairy allowed. I plan to start my exercise program with daily walks. Later, I will add strength training.

Personal Information:
I'm a graduate student from Texas.

Other Information:
I found out about this site from someone on HealthyWeightForum.org. Check it out, it's a good site! I plan to use both.

Gayle -- Good Morning and Greetings from central Indiana!!! Greg here, and just stopping by for a short visit. One of my short term goals is to visit as many of the SparkPages of members of the different teams that I am on. I try to visit one page per team per day (and, yes, I'm keeping track of the pages I visit). You are my "Backpackers" visit for today (we are teammates on the Geocaching and Let's Go Hiking teams as well).

Nice job on your SparkPage. I really like the SparkPages, and think setting one up is an important step; you have to think about what you want to present, and be willing to put it out there for the world to see/read.

Best of luck on your weight loss journey, and may God bless you. -- Greg

Well, hello!
Sorry I haven't really been keeping up with my page. Lots of stuff to do for school right now. So Curves sounds pretty good. If I can ever afford a membership I'll keep it in mind. Oh, New Orleans was pretty cool!. It's not back to the way it was yet, but it is still a nice place to visit. It will be fixed up and attracting the crowds again one of these days, I'm sure of it.
Well, it's after 1 am now. I just finished an assignment and I'm beat. I'll be glad when this semester is over.
Gayle
