My Program:
Log in every day.

Personal Information:
Hi, I'm Petra van
Goor (full name) A funny looking name for most of you, but that's because I'm not from the US. I live in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. I already wanted to join 2-3 years ago, but was unable to, because of lack of creditcard. I finally got the creditcard, only to find out the place is now free! I started my weightloss journy in the fall of '05 weighing 180 pounds. I lost 50 pounds in the first 6 months, and then got stuck. After being stuck for about a year, I kinda gave up and regained about 10 pounds (wich means I've kept 40 pounds off)

Other Information:
I was a drug addict (crack and heroin) between 1992 and 2000. Quiting crack wasn't all that hard. I just got fed up one day. When I quit heroin, I was taking methadone as a replacement. In prison they tapered me off the methadone, but when I got out I went back to taking 10 mg a day. That was februari of 2001. Since this is what works for me, I don't plan on changing it.

I'm new to the 'Healthy in Our 40's Team'

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go....

Stoppin' by to say Hi. Stop by the Virtual Cycling spark team page--the LBS (local bike shop) discussion and we'll share a cup of coffee at their espresso bar. emoticon

If you feel like it, stop by my SparkPage and give me an update on your success and training since we last talked. I think it was when you were doing a solo virtual tour of the Santiago de Compostela tour. I looked back at the discussion thread and it looks like Jim joined you on that.

I hope all is well. Take care, Patty

Sorry, the title of the thread is

GET BACK CONTROL - It is under Motivation, Support and Fun Forum.

But I see you are doing pretty well, gal!!
