Jeff and his 50th Birthday bear!
My name is Rita, I live in S W OK. I am married to a great guy who works @ TAFB, in MWC. We have 2 K~9 kids, Lucy & Fancy.
I have tried losing weight for years, but failed each time, until joining a group called TOPS in Nov. 2003. I am still with that group and now help with the weight recording. I love the gals there, they are a very encouraging and very loving group of people. It was there that I heard about this site, just this morning.
I hope this site will help me get healthier and have people to chat with who are also struggling and know what I am going through.
SNACK ONLY ON LOW~CAL VARIETY OF GOODIES!
DRINK 8 + GLASSES OF WATER DAILY
I am trying to not snack (as usual) after supper, or 6 P. M.; but, if I do, I keep the low snack stuff in the house.
I also drink several BOTTLES (22ozs +) of water daily. ALWAYS!!!
I am originally from Bellflower, CA; now a resident of MOORE, OK.
I'm 6 yr member of TOPS: (Take Off Pounds Sensibly); but really wanted to do something more to feel better, so when a freind @ TOPS told me about this site, I thought I would give it a try and I really love it! That was over a year ago!
It's helped me lose weight, get fit and have fun all at the same time!
It may be a virtual support group, but the people are real and they really care about each other! We all love giving and getting the SP HUGS emoticons!
My two fave quotes are: "Can't hurt, might help"; and "The Serenity Prayer",
THAT has helped me a lot in the past 20+ years! Esp. during the 7 years of my divorcement and being single again! That was a rough time, but, I got through it, and discovered that life after divorce can be WONDERFUL!!!

Thanks for your response re my trip to Germany. I thought it was interesting that you now live in OK. I was born an raised there but now live in Maine. My Dad worked for Tinker during the war. Keep up the walking. I've been doing it for more than 25 years now. I also added weight exercises 3 days a week. Good luck with your efforts. They'll pay off.
