Update: January 21, 2013--I am trying to get back on track after a year of falling off the tracks due to personal problems, family illness, and family passing away. (And my resulting emotional eating and loss of exercise time.) I am on my way back to a healthy body and fitness for life. Though I have tried other plans and had temporary success, Spark People is my ticket to permanent change. I like to take walks, hike, fish, take pictures, paint, write and enjoy quiet contemplation. My ultimate goal is 170 pounds lost. My plan of action is to track everything I eat, do 30 minutes or more of exercise every day and try to help others learn what I have learned. I love to eat a wide variety of delicious and healthy food, with a little fun food thrown in for good measure. I do not consider myself to have been deprived of anything. I enjoy working out at the gym, and generally enjoying life. If you are looking for a panacea, Spark People is not it--but it is a great and exciting program to change your life if you will really apply all the tools available here.

    Good morning Gary! Like me, I see you haven't been on in a while either. I hope that doesn't mean anything "bad" has happened.

    I just fell into a funk and am trying to find my way back out of it. I hope you are well and that 2015 is a wonderful year for you. emoticon

    Hi Gary ! Just checking into see how you're doing...Hope you are doing well. Since I've been back on SP for a little while I was dropping several pounds per week which made me happy. But now, I'm at a stand still but I am determined to move forward and keep on course as I do NOT want to get back what I've lost. I am feeling so much better !! I still have quite a ways to go before I reach my goal. I will push forward and strive to do my best each day. Hang in there Gary...YOU CAN DO IT !! Take care emoticon emoticon emoticon
