Hi, I am joining SparkPeople as part of my continuing journey through my life. I believe the universe places things in my path when I most need them. I am thankful to have been acquainted with this site by a dear friend. I am looking to lose only a few more pounds right now. My main goal is to learn what I need to establish a lasting health lifestyle. It will include weight maintenance and activity I can enjoy in balanced proportions. I initially lost about 45 pounds, but I became unemployed in late August and "fell off the wagon" a bit. I am ready to get back to it, and be serious again. Thanks for being here Sparkpeople!
