I retired four years ago with the good intentions of getting healthier and taking care of myself. In order to become healthier, I would need to lose over 100 pounds. In the four years I have been a member of Spark People, I have lost 10 pounds thanks to this program. In total honesty, I have lost more than that but because of a lack of discipline, loss of commitment and motivation a lot of it has come back. One of the teams I belong to "Christian Living" has a challenge "What are each of you doing for you?" I am hoping that this will help me to stay focused and on track. The group itself is truly amazing as the people on it support and encourage each other on a daily basis. 2012 is the year I TAKE CARE OF ME!

    Hi! I came to your page to respond to your question on the chat thread. You asked about the reference to math books. Some years ago, my friend and I (both math teachers here in our school) wrote a series of math books for junior high and high school. They are used in lots of schools around the country. This year we changed editors in order to update the books with newer technology - the books will be a lot more attractive, even though the content is pretty much the same. Anyway, it's the proofreading that is taking so much time - each book requires at least 4 revisions to correct errors - math has so many numbers, letters and symbols!! LOL!!

    I've been browsing your page... and I so identify with you!! I lost almost 30 pounds, but I've gained back 20 of them!! Now I', beginning again... I so want to reach my goal and maintain! emoticon

    Blessings and hugs! Marge
