Hi! I am on a trek to get and stay healthy! My goal is to lose about 66 pounds. I previously lost 40 with Spark People in 2006, but due to my vertigo/migraines and my Mom's cancer, I have gained it back, as of 8/29/11. I rejoined SP 10/7/14. So this is my Third SP Trek!! I love cats and Star Trek, hence "Trekpurrson"! I'd love to get some help from others, especially if you have sleep apnea, bad knees, pre-diabetes. All can be resolved by weight loss! We can "trek back to good health"!

    Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on yesterdays.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

    My Halloween dream come true! I’m going to be a skeleton for Halloween this year, and go trick or treating in the Body Shop!

    It's hard to be consistent when you are hurting...SP will always be here. I've been mainly checking in each day, too. Then I realized how much help it is to be more involved. Life happens, and I am choosing to be on SP more often. It's a lifeline for me, giving me a touch of sanity in this crazy world. Just knowing there are others who understand what I go through makes it easier.
    I'm so glad you are sticking with it! emoticon
    Even if we only maintain our weight where we are, it is progress. But I think we will naturally move forward if we keep at it.

    The Web of Life owes life to none and freely offer it to all. It is not a force challenging us to battle, but a sacred and owerful partner calling us to join in the dance. David Christopher
