I joined SparkPeople after seeing the Ellen rerun with three very inspirational people who have collectively lost over 300 pounds.
We recently moved into a house in McMinnville, Oregon after living as full-time RVers since 1990. It is an interesting way to live, but all good things must come to an end. We have been Snowbirds since 1992 and intend to move back into the motor home and go to Arizona again this fall.
We own a lot in in RV park in Arizona and have more friends from there that we do in Oregon. Because all the lots are privately owned, the population remains relatively constant. We are hoping the price of gas does not continue to climb.
We did not go to Arizona last winter. We had taken a summertime job in Sisters, Oregon managing a small mobile home/RV park, which was supposed to have closed last year. The owners decided to keep it open and asked us to stay on, which we did, until May of this year. It was the coldest winter in Sisters in ten years, and we weren't prepared mentally for it.
May 23, 2011. Almost three years on this site, and not much change in my weight. I think my attitude has improved a little. We finally sold our motor home but the lot in Arizona is still up for sale. We have had two offers on it, maybe the third one will be the charm.
We bought a manufactured home in McMinnville, Oregon in 2008, shortly before I joined Spark People. We like it a lot but it needs some refurbishing, which we can't finish doing until the lot in Arizona is sold. This will be the year!

Personal Information:
We are no longer r.v.ing at all. My husband has been ill for a while with ulcerative colitis and his doctor doesn't seem to think he should get too far from home for a long period of time. We miss it, but are happy where we are. We made a lot of friends in Arizona and we really miss them.
