How long have I been here on Sparkpeople? A while. A very long while.

Has it worked? Depends on when you ask me... but mostly no.

How often have I used them? Well considering that I dusted off the cobwebs before posting.. not much. (That might be part of the problem...)

Challenges abound. 5 years on steroids. 5 years with ulcerative colitis. Obesity. Chronic fatigue. Painful joints. Excessive whining and complaining. Overall wimpyness.

Then my youngest told me what I tell him all the time... "You don't have to like it - you just have to do it."

So I gave a big hrumph.. rolled my eyes at him.. and logged back on after taking a nice long walk.

Let's see where this goes...

My Goals:
My goal is to... okay.. are you ready for this? Here it comes!!


And.. wait for it....


Crazy, huh?!!

Seriously though.. I've got to lose about 70-75 pounds. Ugh.

My Program:
Program? You need a program?

I'm actually searching for the perfect book/program. My perfect program is one that :

1. Looks in my cupboard and knows what I have on hand.
2. Is cheap.
3. Doesn't have me cooking something new every darn meal.
4. Is fast!

Meanwhile, I'm just trying to eat healthier, discover something about portions and move more.

Personal Information:
I'm a Hoosier farm girl living in Southern California. How I got to this new planet is whole other story!

Do you know you can't find a tenderloin as big as your head out here? And every time I tell folks here that we ate Mexican food at Chi-Chi's they giggle! What's up with that?

    Thanks for the comment on my page. I think of you this time of year too. The background picture on my page was taken at the the McGrath pumpkin patch on Los Olivas! Maybe we can meet there some time. I'm in Ventura/Oznard at least once a week. Happy Autumn!

    Hi......you asked about my adding nuts to my morning yogurt. I only use about half and ounce for the taste and crunch. That amount doesn't seem to have a negative effect on my calorie or fat count at the end of the day. My food tracker is public.....feel free to take a look!

    Take care and have a great weekend, Terry

    Regarding the Ziplock Omelet: someone commented that ziplock bags may not be safe to boil food in and when I googled it, it appears to be correct. They do not recommend boiling in them. You can google to find out more information. Nancy
