About a year ago I lost my job (which I loved )that involved a lot of physical activities. I always ate what I wanted because it was easy to burn it off. My new job (which I also love) finds me behind a desk all day. This makes it alittle hard to burn off the calories. About a month ago, I found spark people when I was trying to change my eating habits and was looking for a calorie calulator. I googled it and clicked onto the website. I got way more than I was looking for. I really love this site because it helps me not only manage my calories but also my workouts. There is so much information avalible and I am telling everyone I know about the site.

My Goals:
My first goal is to get back into my work pants. Next I would like to lose 45 lbs. But then I will have to buy new pants. Ha Ha.

6-12-09 Just an update...Got into my jeans and they are actually alittle too big now. My next goal is to get to a size 8. This will be a real achievement since I haven't been that size since 9th grade. (I don't want to even think of how long ago that was.)lol

My Program:
I am really following my nutrient intake in accordance with the program set up by the spark people web site. I try to consume the water since I know it is important to my weight lose. I have always been a water drinker but I struggle with consuming that much water. I am still trying to critique my workouts to fit my schedule and ability.

Personal Information:
I am a grandmother of 4 beautiful grandchildren and a mother of 3 beautiful kids. I work as a manager for a newspaper in the circulation dept. I love my job and am very blessed to have so many good things and people in my life. I often don't act like or look like a grandma and often am mistakened for my children's siblings. This is also a blessing. (although I didn't think so when I was younger and people thought I was still a child).

    Hi Janeen, thanks for stopping by my page! I see you have beautiful grandkids! Sweet smiles. I live in the Akron area, about 2 or so hours west of Pittsburgh. Yeah, I figured if I'm doing school again, it's now or never, while I still have the energy. I'm hoping that some weight loss before school starts will help with energy levels too. It's going to be a LOT of work, so I need all the help I can get! Will you post some pics of your pups? Good luck to you too... see you around the boards!

    Love your attitude! You're not letting the foot injury throw you. I lost 4 days this week to the monthly scourge. It was a BAD one. Trying to get back on track for the remainder of the week. It's been pouring rain here, not the normal Seattle drizzle. I have been able to focus on eating well... we do what we can!

    I would have gone to Bamboozle except for it's such late notice. It's on like the 5th or 6th of May and I'm still in school then (I go to Vassar College). I think I will definitely try to aim to go next year though.
