I returned from Maryland recently where I found protein cookies(!). I don't think they are available here yet, but you can buy them online. They are made with whey protein, not soy protein, perhaps slightly healthier depending on your perspective. They taste very good for a protein cookie, but while t...

My reason for joining is to be healthy, but also loose weight since I am newly engaged. Weight has been an issue for me for most of my life and I want to have this issue behind me once I get married. My fience has always helped me with my issue, but I feel it gets in the way of our relationship when I am constently obsessing.

I read about this site in People magazine and my sister-in-law and I are doing it together. Right now though I have to admit I'm a little overwhelmed by this website. It has so much to offer, but I'm afraid I have such little time to investigate (i.e. I'm currently at work and should really be doing something else!!!). Any advice out there?

My goals are to lose about 21 pounds and exercise regularly. I joined because I want to track my calorie intake and keep track of my progress. I find that I let myself "cheat" too often, so if I have to post everything I eat, it'll help me make better decisions. I also love the information, tips, receipes and support!

My name is Heather and I just moved to Homewood, IL (Chicago south 'burbs) 3 weeks ago. Once the move was complete, I decided it was time to get back to the healthy eating, etc. SP resources I had used to lose 30 lbs. this time last year (which I ended up gaining all back)! I'm always looking to meet new people and exercise/motivation/dog-walking (we have two 55 lb black labs) buddies and I'm looking forward to being an active member of this group as much as I can! :) Tue, 4 Mar 2008 11:21:38 EST Wow it's cold here http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x12313x12394342 Ohh my gosh...it's been a long time since I have dealt with such cold weather. I grew up in Missouri near St Louis and we haven't had weather this cold in a long time. I have also lived in Hawaii and Southern Nevada. I am going to have to really adjust to this colder weather. I just about froze today taking our puppy out for a walk.
