I am changing my introduction today after almost a year. May 1st 2010 was my start date with Spark. Now today April 11 2011 I have a different perspective. I used the nutrition tracker in the spring of 2010 and lost 22 pounds then in the fall of 2010 I stopped doing it. I just got tired of it I have continued to read Spark people emails and have continued to go for walks but the winter saw me gain back all but 6 pounds of my spring weight loss.

I just got tired of it I have continued to read Spark people emails and have continued to go for walks but the winter saw me gain back all but 6 pounds of my spring weight loss. I obviously haven't changed much if I am still yoyoing. I will continue ... I will use the tracker and I wont give up. Spring is around the corner and I want to get back to where I was last summer. With the help of the tracker and great spark friends I know I can do it. Peace

My Goals:
To find a course of action that will eliminate the temptation to solve emotional issues with sugar and or bread and butter.. To excercise, drink water and appreciate good healthy foods.

Personal Information:
I am Joanna Carnie. I am a grandmother but the grand kids are 18 and 20 years old. I live in northern British Columbia in the countryside near a small village(originally from Montreal). I walk in the woods with my friend and our dogs. I am married and have a part time job at the local college. I read a lot and volunteer at the food bank.

Other Information:
In the last 20 years I have lost around 40 lb. twice. It seems like every 9 or 10 years I decide to lose the weight again. It creeps on at the rate of 3 or 4 pounds a year. I hate the scale and my clothes are tight. I am hoping to break the yoyo cycle this time and keep it off.

Hi Joanna. Thanks for commenting on my blog. So sorry to hear you got
4 inches of snow. That means you will have the cold around for a bit longer.
I feel guilty that we are enjoying great sunny weather. It was 24 today - 30 last Wednesday. Gets cool around 4 am then the days are beautiful till
around 6 pm. But I am still sitting here sleeveless at 8pm. My sinuses are
going crazy. I saw that Susan mentioned Zac. I also send lots of hugs to you.
Have a great weekend. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Joanna,

I'm feeling rather sad this morning that I just realized Zac has passed away.....over a year ago! How did I not see this before now? Please close your eyes and feel this emoticon

Sincerely,

Susan

I have followed Claire's beautiful travel and hiking blogs for some time- every one a work of art!
I, too, know a few folks who gained wt back after surgery but I can see why- did not address their emotional issues or did not exercise.
The balloon seems so simple- and its for six months and can be repeated every few years, if needed.
I have tried everything!

Thank you for thinking of me Joanna. So far, we have had beach erosion and local flooding in my area. The eye of the cyclone was further north but as it travels south to us, it is heavy rain. I hope we won't see the flooding of 2013.
A lot of people have lost roofs and now cleaning up. We just have thunderstorm warnings now. Not doing too much, staying safe indoors. emoticon
