Hellllllllo! Cape Coral here! I've lived in the area for 30 yrs, (I'm 40-mumble) originally from Chicago and I answer to Brat. I blame my Northern upbringing on my truly deplorable sense of humor but I'm completely harmless and love making new friends of all ages! I used Sparkpeople to meet a weight loss goal a few years ago, and then got lazy--I excel at being lazy.... (LOL...my best excuse for not working out: 'it's hot, can't work out when it's HOT!') Anyway, mom of a grown son and an 8 yr old daughter, I'm working a high stress job, been working a LOT of hours and somedays I'm at my desk from 8 to 8. I'm thoroughly frustrated by the scale, and find it to be a complete discouragement to me in my plan to 'get rid of the weight' (upon one weigh in I opened my front door and sent the scale across the yard and into a heap by the garbage can, but that was purely a defensive move on my part) . I enjoy tracking my food and fitness on Spark, but rather then jumping on the scale, my goal involves staying active and meeting my workout goals each month and adding to them as I get into shape. LOL...I'll know when it's safe to stop on the scale again. Realistically I'm looking to drop from 20 to 30 lbs, and fit into my skinny clothes again!
