This is my second go-round with Spark People. Just got totallly overwhelmed last time trying to do too much here with too too much going on with life. But I gained SOOO much since last summer that I know I need the accountability this site gives me.

So I'm not going to try to be posting, responding, and doing all the Spark People activities. Will do what I can, when I can - so if you contact me and I don't reply, its not about you, but about budgeting my time.

The fitness and nutrition trackers, and this blog are my accountability; and I desperately need them! In October of 2009 my SO and I are hosting a major event with our car club here in AZ and have about 400 members joining us. Last thing I want to see in photos of this event - all over the internet, in the club publications, is a blimpo rolling about!!

I"m months away from turning 60, have some Osteoarthritis, and some nerve issues with Bells Palsy, Morton's Neuroma, and other similar problems in parts of my body. Escess weight is not doing me any favors!

So I will mumble, whine, and pant my way thru this blog as I get back into an exercise program, eating program, and deal with my issues.
ANd I know thru all that, there will be Spark People cheering me on and giving me the appropriate Kick In The Butt when I need it. So thanks in advance!

    LOL, this is an awful season to try to lose but especially when Im unable to exercise like I would like, but am doing what I can to be mindful about what Im eating and hoping for some restraint. Hope you have a good holiday though.

    Thanks for reading my Blog. It was a four month plateau of weight loss but as I said in the blog I am off BP meds and diabetes meds so I did accomplish a lot.
    I was prescribed a painkiller generic name. Discovered it was an antidepressant so I am going through withdrawal I have been off it just 7 days, having been on it a year plus.
    A very bad week but I average way over 250 minutes on the treadmill and incline and do 20 minute miles did even more of it this week.
    I make all of our meals from scratch love doing it that way and I eat well within my diabetic tracker. This too shall pass I have asked my acupuncturist to help out. Pat in Maine.
