When I hit 40 things really started to fall apart. I found that what I believed to be true wasn't when it came to nutrition. Discovered the truth behind the cliche "you are what you eat." Well this is all about re-learning, improving and preserving what I have. I've got a ways to go, but I'm determined to enjoy the journey. Adapt, overcome, and maintain!

Other Information:
I like to go on mini-vacations and find new ways to be active. My inspiration to get started initially started with the Biggest Loser (original series), but when I turned 40 I came into touch with my mortality. It was just time. I quite smoking July 4th, 2004 and started working out August 2004. Didn''t start losing weight until January of 2006 though. It took me that long to realign myself.

    Hi! Congratulations on your hard-earned success. I noticed your tagline is the same as mine. It sure is up to me. I also noticed you like mini-vacations. Me, too. Three to four days is plenty of time for me. I have been considering gastric bypass for about 3 years now. I am sure the surgery helps with portion control, but my mind and attitude are at the root of my problems with food. I am certainly glad that it worked for you. Thank you for sharing, Janet emoticon

    Welcome to Gastric Bypass! Congrats to your hubby, too! You’ll find plenty of support and encouragement here. No question is too stupid to ask, so post away and we’ll all put in our two cents worth. Utilize all the tools SP has to offer. I find tracking my food and exercise most helpful. Good luck on your weight loss journey!

    So I'm not a big scrapping person because I just don't have the time but I went to this conservation park for exotic cats and when I came home I put together my first scrap book and it was completely dedicated to this park. How cool is that? My love for cats spilled over into something I've never done before. Who knew that scrapping could be relaxing? :)
