Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
Hi all, new to SparkPeople and in the Portland area. I figured it was about time I got back into some shape. Turning 40 was a big eye opener, in the sense that it seems like life has taken over in the daily routines/expectations. But, I would really like to break them and gain some of the fun back which is hard to do and feel, when I look at myself now. I need to lose and get more active, for me, I didn't realize hard it was, in the past running would drop the pounds quickly, but with the added weight it's hard and the results are not the same as they were in my 20's -30's. So , now I need the "nutrition" tracker to see the numbers (an eye opening experience, my daily coffee 220 cal for one). My goals is to lose 20+ lbs and to run the Portland Half Marathon, I signed myself up for this October. So hello to you all-
