Hi, I am using this site to help me become more healthy in a balanced way. I have arthritis in various joints which makes exercising a little more challenging. I am married with two adult children, retired and live in England.

My Goals:
To be more healthy by becoming fitter and losing weight.

My Program:
I am using the nutrition tracker to track my food and am also exercising more. I use a variety of exercise which includes walking, using the Wii, Step, Wii Dance, Leslie Sansone's Walk Away the Pounds, Spark's strength exercises, SP 28 Day Boot Camp (when my joints will let me) and Wii My Fitness Coach (also when my joints will let me). My weight loss has been slow but that is okay as I feel and am fitter than when I first came to SP and my muscles are becoming stronger.

Other Information:
I like reading, music, dancing (when I get the opportunity) and walking. I also have a interest in Complementary Medicine.

Thank you for the information on your local traditions.

Around here, in addition to the official Thanksgiving, each church usually has a "Harvest Fest" dinner as a fund raiser. There's usually a choice of ham or turkey (sometimes beef) and the usual accompaniments. Sometimes there's a craft or bake sale also, some churches have both.

In addition, after the first of the year, the Lutherans in some parishes put on a lutefisk dinner with turkey for those who don't appreciate lutefisk. Those dinners are usually worth going to for the lefse... And then there are the Mennonite Schmeckfests, which seem to be concentrated in NE Montana, North Dakota, and northern Minnesota.

I don't know if any of the churches in the area do a food drive for their own distribution, but we do have local organizations that are called the Food Bank that distribute food to the needy as approved by the welfare office. The food comes from private donations of both funds and goods, and also from government commodity programs. That is one of my favored charities. Our local food bank also distributes new or gently used clothing and household needs to those who need it since the nearest Salvation Army thrift shop is 90 miles away.

It's interesting how different areas have different customs.

I think you could still use this list, keeping in mind that more whole grain foods and less processed foods are better for you...
