I am a married, retired, mother of 2, now taking the time to lose some additional weight for my Health. Goal is to come off diabetes pills & cholestrol meds! I lost 95 lbs a few years ago and I have gained back about 25-30... not good... tis time... as I refuse to buy larger clothes! I work 1 or 2 days a week in sales for extra fun $$ & to get out of the house. I need some big time motivation to return to water aerobics!

I used DW previously and had great results with tracking my food that way and made some Super Friends over the years.... . Old DW users may remember me as Netabuddie, Captain of the Cruise 2 Lose Chat Group from there.

Actually My Goals seem very related to my program???

My Program:
Get moving, walking, whatever it takes to make this work! etc.

Plan & Eat more realisticly balanced meals. (instead of grazing).

    Hope you don't mind, me asking, but I wanted to take this opportunity to invite you to "OVERCOMING OBSTACLES".

    The link is located on my sparkpage, (you can link it from's there- by my pic lol) and the main discussion room is marked with "sticky topic".(more then 1/2 do not have a disability)
    There are many Topics...( there is something for everyone to take comfort in).. There are many little challenges posted , on " Tickle*me*Pink " 's sparkpage, if you are up to them..(she is my all-giving wife, & the team leader, & her page link is on my page also.)

    I was hoping that you will come click the link, join the group, & say hello... As you read some of the posts in there, you will see some amazing accomplishments, before and after joining sparkpeople. Spark coach Jen is a member of our team, also, and is willing to help everyone.

    (my wish is that everyone on sparkpeople has a place to meet.(.wether they attend to other groups,that's always okay)..but I feel it is important that there is a place for that like "OO")
    PLEASE feel freeee to invite your friends in with you.
    .. You're in the right place & no matter where we're from, what religion we are, etc etc etc.. I just can't say enough about the people (family) in OO. (You will feel very welcomed)
