I have struggled with my weight my entire life with the wxception of the five years between the birth of my son and the birth of my daughter. For some reason, it was easier to maintain my weight during those years. I have serious sugar cravings, but without diabetes at this point. I am currently trying to eat healthier, i.e. more fresh fruits and veggies, whole grains, and lean meats. I am not counting calories yet, although I recognize that I may need to later. I have lost some weight in my stomach (YAY), based on my diet, but I don't have a scale at home, and haven't been to the gym in waaay too long. I am married to my third husband, who also struggles with his weight. I am somewhat of an introvert by nature, tending to keep my thoughts and feelings to myself, so this is out of character for me. I'm not even sure why I'm doing it - certainly not for attagirls, etc. Maybe I expect that seeing it in print and knowing it is visible to others will make me more diligent, or feel like I am accountable to someone other than myself. I guess we'll see if that works out. ; )

    Hi Robin! Are you still signing on sometimes? I didn't use Sparkspeople for a while, but back at it now:)

    The rec center has a class called Zumba... I went last week for the first time and it was so much fun!!! My face was sore afterward from smiling so much :-D The next day the rest of me was sore!!!

    Let me know if you're interested in going with me sometime; I think it's only $3 for non-members.

    I'm living in Chandler and from Oregon too. I work out at Tumbleweed Rec Center and really enjoy it. We moved here almost a year ago. Do you have any favorite things to do in Chandler...we are kind of at a loss...
