Well, I am walking from my house to Washington (290.75 miles) and want to get there for the Inauguration. So far I have done 82 miles with time off at Thanksgiving, so I have to step it up. I also got a blister on my big toe early on but that is just an excuse. I get lots of encouragement from folks at the Senior Center and they don't mind if I hog one of treadmills for more than a half hour. Even the Reps. that are there when I am have been are supportive.

Note my newest icon. Steal it if you want from my page.

Hi everyone! My name is Liza and I'm 35. To me, Obama represents the dawning of a new day of hope and change and has inspired me to take control of my health. I want to lose weight and become healthier in the process. I need support and I offer mine in return!

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!

WElcome to the site and the team. This site helped me lose 53 pounds, but I have since gained back 18. I need to get on the wagon again!!!

I love Sparkpeople and Obama!! Good job with not snacking at night. That is always a hard time for me too!

Welcome! And YES WE DID and YES WE CAN! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. I can tell you that one of the greatest changes I made was stopping my night-time grazing. No eating for me from 7:30 or three hours before bed, whichever. It was not easy at first, but it got easier and easier. You can do it! You're off to a good start.

Hi,

I'm new to this site, and just joined this particular team. Funny, but my headline prior to discovering this team was "Yes I (We) Can!" I just added a new photo to my images and was worried it might be offensive, but, my sister assured me it was empowering. Then I click on this site and see the Obama image with the "O" on his chest! Ha! Love, love, love it! The world is a better place. This is only day 2 here for me, but, the good news is I didn't eat after dinner last night, nor in the middle of the night. That is progress. So, thanks!
Julie
