My name is Lynda Pringle and I'm a married 47 year old who lives in Austin, Texas. I discovered this neck of the woods through a Facebook friend. During my free time, I enjoy reading, traveling and participating on Facebook. My favorite genre is true crime and I avidly read as many books in that field as I can and I'm an Investigation Discovery junkie. Welcome!

My Goals:
My goal is to lose 64 pounds. I know it's a huge undertaking and that it may take a couple of years to lose it all as I do not plan on going on a starvation diet. The weight did not develop overnight and neither will the weight loss. My other goal is to exercise as frequently as I can for at least 30 minutes to an hour a day. Exercise, in itself, without the reduction in calories, does not result in a lot of weight loss. However, I am exercising for my health and not only to lose weight. I am hoping that I will acquire more stamina and mental acuity if I consistently exercise. My last goal for this year is to find a job. I am not in dire circumstances but I want to be able to contribute to the household expenses. In that context, I've been mailing in between 10 to 20 applications a week. I hope I get nibbles soon!! Oh, and this goes without saying, I hope to meet some fine and kind people in this great group!

My Program:
I just started this program but I do have some plans in mind to achieve my goals. One is to carefully track everything i eat on the nutrition bar and to not exceed the calories allotted to me. I also have joined the YMCA gym facilities so I can get a variety of exercises ranging from cardio to toning. Finally, there will be no snacking after supper and, of course, I plan on participating in the community boards to get some good pointers on keeping good track of my goals. I will also blog regularly so I can reflect in the future the mistakes I made in my program and to exercise my love of writing.

Personal Information:
My name is Lynda Pringle and I am a 47 year old married woman who lives in Austin, Texas. I have lived here since 1993 and my original hometown is New Orleans. I am a very, patient, laid back person, never quick to take offense and eager to make friends. My e-mail address is snowlynn@aol.com should any of you wish to drop me a line.

Other Information:
My hobbies include voracious reading, with my favorite genre being true crime. I also am addicted to the Investigation Discovery channel on television. I also enjoy watching shows such as "American Gangster" and old Twilight Zone episodes. Another favorite of mine is "I Survived," which is about folks who survived horrific tragedies. I love to bowl but can never find anyone with whom to bowl so any Austinites here interested in bowling, shoot me an e-mail! My dream has been to see as much of the world as I can and I have well achieved that dream. My husband and I have been to France, Great Britain, Spain, Italy, Austria, Germany, Amsterdam, Lebanon as well as many cities in the U.S. I am a very leisurely person and do not enjoy "keeping busy" so I think this has resulted in a good quality of life for me.

thx Linda for you lovely comments on my Sparkpage!
Best of luck with your journey... I just love your wall paper foto of the forest road thru the Redwoods?... those wallpapers are only up for a flash, while the Sparkpage loads, but for a second, I was there, feeling the silence and the moist smell of the duff... very nice, indeed!

The things we think of as the impossible are the things we just have not conquered yet. So continue the battle.
