My Goals:
I hope and pray I can get myself back to a decent weight before I leave this world. I know I would feel much better. A decent goal for me would be 200 now but I will change that as I move closer to 200.

My Program:
Right now I am not doing too much other than reading up on this site to see what it is all about. The support is amazing now I need to spend time on the nutritional side of things and pick a plan suitable for me. A lot of reading.

Personal Information:
I live in NJ and have been struggling with weight almost all my life. I got down pretty slim way back in the 80's but as soon as I move from California to NJ I started putting weight on very quickly. My mother passed away and I quick smoking all the same year. I went through a real cultural shock as well. My husband was working nights and I was working in the NY City with same company I was with in California. Same job different people. In any event, I used comfort constantly and thus 100 lb; gain. Got some of that off, then put on again - the usual mishap with weight lost.
so here I am trying again but now hit time flies by. I am really in an inbetween state with my life - go for it or accept it....
I really want to go for it for my grand children. They are everything to me....

Other Information:
I absolutely love to read and I am presently taking a Bible Study Class which I adore. I also am taking a creative writing class on line. I love it and hope some day I can use my skills in writing a book someday.

Looks like you're doing well, making friends and joining some good teams. Let me know if I can help you at all (I'm your Class team leader :-) You're right, it is large and confusing. Takes about a month to learn your way around. But there's no rush! Take your time and keep adjusting your page and teams and things to accomodate what you're learning and how you're doing.
