My name is Karen and I have a problem with my weight, that is to say, I'm not happy with it. It's been an ongoing problem that I have spent years trying to correct. Each year gets a little better but I never quite make it to the finish line.

My Goals:
My goal is to lose 25-30 pounds. Since I really enjoy walking, I'm hoping that will help me achieve my goal.

My Program:
I've become somewhat obsessed with trying to do 30 day challenges to help get me back on track to lose my unwanted weight.

Personal Information:
Where are you from? I am from Eastpointe, Michigan. I have 3 children and a grandson. I am currently unemployed but am registered and certified as a medical assistant.

Other Information:
Walking is a passion of mine. I do it as much as possible. I am also addicted to researching my family tree. Having diabetes and recently being diagnosed with celiac disease, I'm finding it hard to lose the weight I need to lose.

OMG! I laughed out loud when I read your comment on my blog about the guy tying his ankle to the bedpost! I honestly can say I understand him doing that. If you don't have this disorder people just don't understand! Thanks for the suggestion. I'm going to try the bells first but if that doesn't work, I'm going to get a piece of rope and tie myself to the bed. My husband should get a kick out of that! emoticon

Can't do cleaning during the week. Weekends are when I do laundry and house work. Work during the week takes the whole day. When I get home, there's not enough time to do much.

Happy sparking!

Ihad setteld in a spanish area,,,, that food was strange and unknown to me,, but I learned a lot of it,, YUMMY !! it was also SURROUNDED by a zillion fast food places,,, the typical ones,,, though they are NOT spanish foods,,, and I LOVED IT !! Where i am now,,, we only have 4 fast foods,,,, and they are kinda NASTY ! I learned I ADORE Sonics ! LOL how BAD !! MY Son In Law,,, wanted to go nighty,, at first so did I !!! Than I saw my weight up to almost 200,, and STOPPED,,,, going nightly,, but, than I got depressed,,, not from being far from home,, but, I was stupdly living with my family,,, something I NEVER WILL DO AGAIn,, though they wanted me to during my old age,, yeah, so they could rip off my CASH ! bank accounts, and RUN UP my credit cards. SHEESHE LOUISE !!!

So I went back up to 223. I am now over a yr latr,,, struggling as you saw,, but slowly I go back and forth,,, but mostly forth,, lb by lb.

It is a perfect autumn day here. Rainy and cool. Great day to read,
work on the computer or just take a nap while my DH watches football on the tv. No guilt about not being outside walking, Later I'll hop on my stationery bike. Enjoy your day!
