I will definately send good luck your way. Just be patient, you time is coming. My house has been on and off the market since October /09, but I am still staying on SparkPeople. OMG, I would be lost without out it as I found out when I went off there for a while. So chin up, I am sending only good thoughts your way. I am here anytime you need to talk, okay. emoticon Hopefully this 4 leaf clover brings you luck.

Hi just wondering how you are doing? Haven't heard from you lately? Hope you are doing well, I was looking at old blogs and stuff and saw where you used to live in Oromocto years ago, I think I was living there at the same time. You look a little familiar and just wondered if we were in school together. Take care of yourself, and ease up on the fries, you'll feel better for it. emoticon

Yes I am back. It sounds like you are not doing so hot. Like you were there for me, I will be there for you. Sometimes, getting away from SP helps to get your Spark back, that's why I had to leave. The more I gained weight, then took it off, like a rollercoaster, was depressing me, hence the down blogs. I needed to actually want to come back and realize Sparkpeople isn't a diet or something that is a one time deal, it is a lifestyle and that I had better smarten up if I wanted to be around for my grandson and grandson to be coming. I guess I needed a knock on the old noggin. Yes, I am lonely with the hubby gone, but now I can eat whatever I want to eat, come and go when I want, etc. I feels good, but having someone to talk to is something I miss. Believe it or not, I haven't talk to a living soul since last Thursday. I talk on the telephone, on the webcam but that is it. The only person I have talked to was my doctor and that was an hour ago. So now I will go God knows how long before I talk to anyone else again. Ya, being single is not all its cracked up to be.

Thanks for adding me, and for welcoming me to the NB team! 'Course that's a team I just HAD to join! I love that little face with you in your profile pic...too cute!

I have had great success with SparkPeople, and I recommend it to everyone who asks me how I "did it". The trackers on here have been my saving grace, and really what I needed to "get it done". It's just been recently that I've realized the interaction with others on here is just as important. 50 lbs can definitely be done! I can't even imagine battling chronic pain. I know how hard it is to get going even when I'm a little stiff, sore, or tired. My battle has been Type 1 diabetes that I've had most of my life. I struggle with my insulin/glucose levels, but despite that I did it this time. You will too! Your tracker shows you're down 6 lbs already?! You go girl! Have a great day!

Another similarity, our weight is about the same. I'm at 191 right now. I wonder if our height is similar too..haha!

In case you're curious about the height, I'm 5'4".
Hope you've had a good day :)
