For the past three yrs. we've been living in a great little city with lots of opportunities for healthy activities with a brand new 50m pool/fitness centre and the Greenway(milles of pathways along a natural creek) within walking. Since Sept.2008 I have lost 50lbs. through lots of swimming, some strength training and portion control eacept for giant salads. I shoot for around 500 cals. per meal. Consistency is always the challenge what with depression, ADD, OCD, and/or maby its just hormones from hell perhaps caused from not controlling blood sugar levels hence insulin(??).

Sounds like you live in an absolutely wonderful place! I was born and raised in Alaska, I now live in Florida. I miss mountains and beautiful trees, etc. My brother live in Washington state and I can wait to to visit him for all that beautiful Northwest scenery. Hope your progress is going well.
