I have had a weight problem ever since I was a child. I remember how focused my family was on it. When I was in fifth grade, I met a pediatrician who got me a diet I could manage myself and I became pretty empowered and lost a great deal of weight. When I went to college, when most people gain weight I lost and kept it off pretty well until after my first child. About the age of 40, I mentally became tired and threw in the towel.

I have had a weight problem ever since I was a child. I remember how focused my family was on it. When I was in fifth grade, I met a pediatrician who got me a diet I could manage myself and I became pretty empowered and lost a great deal of weight. When I went to college, when most people gain weight I lost and kept it off pretty well until after my first child. About the age of 40, I mentally became tired and threw in the towel. Unfortunately the pounds started to sneak up on me. At 55 I got on the scale and realized I could be considered obese. Also my blood pressure was up and my liver enzymes and my calcium levels were out of whack. I knew I had to gain control again, or I won't be able to enjoy my grandchildren.

I been with Spark People for just over four years now. I am not where I want to be but my doctors have seen a radical improvement in all the things that were going bad. I am still working toward my goal weight but enjoying life as it comes. I appreciate all the support that I have received from my Spark Friends and am committed to keep at it.

Thanks for the hot cocoa! Not sure I am ready for 6-8+ inches of snow but at least I have the outdoor lights up so that much is done.

emoticon emoticon So you ever go to parks on your weekends! How about a challenge? You have so many there...14 State Parks • 21 State Wildlife Management Areas
3 State Wildlife Refuges • 2 National Parks • 1 National Forest
1 National Memorial • 7 National Wildlife Refuges and I bet they aren't that far. The challenge is to go to one before the weather gets bad and take photos and post a first blog! That would be so cool! I would invite my spf's to come to it. I have several that said one of the places they would love to go to is Mount Rushmore (me included)!
Just a thought. I know that is what got me started with my hikes, just so I could blog about them. It is fun!! emoticon emoticon
And look how close you are to Wyoming! Lucky you!! emoticon
