My name is Gwen. I live in NW Wisconsin and have been happily married for nearly 33 years. My husband and I have a 26 year old daughter who has flown the coop and is on her own. We live on a lake and share our house with three dogs and two cats.

It's hard to believe I've been a member of Spark People for nearly three years! I started this journey when the scale had crept up to nearly 200 pounds! Yikes!!! It has been a long slow journey, slowed and stalled by a painful hip I've now had replacement surgery for. I've recovered from that, feeling great, and ready to exercise and loose the last of the weight I want to loose.

I've made some wonderful friends here on Spark People. They have helped me stay motivated, engaged, and helped me hang in there even when I stalled out for months. I have never stuck with a diet or exercise routine for this long. At nearly three years it is safe to say this is a life style change now....not just a diet.

I'm beginning to enjoy exercise, something I never thought would happen! There are times when it can be hard to fit it into the day, but I try hard to find ways to exercise, even if only a little.

    HI LOL just was over at Gerrys page, I know it was one of you two that I was on a biggest loser team with way back. I can't remember the name and was wondering if it was still a viable team. The new season is starting and boy do I need motivation.
    Some things seem to never change but time marches on and I have to get with it.
    Thanks
