Hi. Thanks for checking out my Spark Page. I'm Eileen and people call me Ei. I live in Ohio!

Isn't SparkPeople.com wonderful? I really love it and it sure is helping me in my journey. This website was recommended to me when I asked my doctor how I could lose weight. Wow! I am so glad I asked her that question!

I went to Weight Watchers for several years off and on and did lose, but then put it back on when I stopped going.

Hi. Thanks for checking out my Spark Page. I'm Eileen and people call me Ei. I live in Ohio!

Isn't SparkPeople.com wonderful? I really love it and it sure is helping me in my journey. This website was recommended to me when I asked my doctor how I could lose weight. Wow! I am so glad I asked her that question!

I went to Weight Watchers for several years off and on and did lose, but then put it back on when I stopped going.
In September 2010 when I discovered Spark People and read the book, it really got me motivated to make a decision. I decided I wanted a healhier lifestyle and knew I needed to make a change. I was doing the WW Points plan-- on my own with the help of Spark People.

Spark got me going and then the new WW Points plus plan came out and I decided to change from WW points- on my own to the new plan.
In December of 2010 , I re-joined for the new WW Points Plus Program for three months. It was a early Christmas gift to myself, since I know ----I am worth it!!
Now, since early March 2011, I am doing the program on my own. I have a long way to go, but know this program will keep me on top of things.
I have a few health problems that sometimes interfere
with my exercising plans, but am striving to improve on this. I am hoping my health will actually be much better by my activity and healthier lifestyle.
One day at at time I will get there. It may take me longer than I planned, but I will not give up. My journey is moving in the right direction and I am on this with all of you. Let's help each other get there. Thanks for being here Spark People!

Good morning to you, Ei. Thanks for you comment on my friends feed about me going shopping. Yes, I did load up of fruit and veggies. Iceberg lettuce along with a bag of spring mix. My husband likes only iceberg lettuce and I like a variety of greens. emoticon I also got cauliflower and broccoli and some frozen veggies too. As far as fruit, I picked up a mango, some Braeburn apples, some cutie tangerines and some bananas, so I did pretty good. My husband and I are trying to go low-carb, so we're zeroing in on the whole foods too. Oh, and my knee is so marvelous, I feel like I'm in my 20's again. I love it! Now I know kind've how good you feel. It's a miracle! Hugs to you too, and have a great weekend!

Ei, I'm doing grilled chicken tenders and putting that on spinach salads which will have a light vinegar and oil homemade raspberry dressing, it does not take much to dress the salad. My friend is bringing fresh fruit for dessert.
