Mon, 7 Jun 2010 23:26:57 EST Hi Y'All I just joined Sparkpeople this morning after reading an article in First magazine. I had no idea such a site existed, and free to boot! I have been feeling my way around the site and here I am now! I live in Tifton, still working in nursing, my 2 sons are grown and I have recently begun having some weight related health issues. You'd think a nurse would know better, wouldn't you? I look forward to getting to know all of you, I'm excited to be here. Have a great day, everyone.

I'm a bad, bad girl. The first night we went to a Thai Resturant. I didn't do too bad with my main entre, but couldn't resist the fried shrimp toast for an appetisor. The next day we had a really cool burrito for lunch at a place in Chattanooga called BlueCoast. (I think) I did pretty good with the black beans and veggies on a chipotle tortilla, but spoiled it with a luscious cheese sauce. And to top that ...
