I started my quest to get healthier about 2 years ago, I wieghed 217 pound and a size 20 was getting to tight. All i did all the time when i wasn't working was lay around and eat. I started using slim fast and doing some exercises on my own and the weight started coming off, then i started buy exercise tapes and small exercise equipment the i could use in the living room. Over the course of about a year i lost down to 162 and fit into a size 12, then i started to slip back into my lazy ways ...

I gained back up to 185 over a year, then i had a physical and found out my thyroid wasn't functioning right, I went on medication for it and it gave me the energy to start getting my self in shape again.

Welcome to MAINE CONNECTIONS! I see the team has already given you a royal welcome! And invited you to our meeting!
Are you in the Bangor area? I was wondering which facility you work at, as i have had family and friends in places there.
Please feel free to join any of the challenges, jump right in on the boards, we would love to get to know you!

Welcome to SparkPeople and Maine Connections. SP is a great site to learn to live a healthy lifestyle. From the introduction to your SparkPage it sounds as if you are like me. You can lose but it is too easy to fall back into the old habits and the weight returns. SP's objective is to help you break this cycle. Maine Connections is a great team. The members are very supportive and encouraging.

This weekend some of the team members are getting together in Augusta. Check out the thread on the team message board.

I look forward to getting to know you on the daily chat thread.
