Thank you to both of you for the warm welcome. I will look at the challenges and get involved. So far, it has been interesting to watch the data. I always thought that I was fairly active in my classroom- yet, it is clear that I am far less so than I thought. So far, I like this device!
Have a good end of February!

Welcome to the team, Donna! I hope you find your device to be just what you need to break through. It has made a big difference for me and many others here. We have a weekly challenge you are welcome to jump in at any time, and we started a monthly tracking thread as well. I just turned 57 last month, so I am very aware of the challenges involved with trying to lose at this age.

Hello!
My name is Donna and I am trying a new approach/ new start. I am joining two new teams and up-dating a lot of my spark information. I have been yo-yoing the same ten pounds for many years now. I eat fairly healthy and I workout. My friends have told me that I should be an athlete by now...lol. Others have noticed that with all the times that I have lost 5 pounds, there should be nothing left. Yet, I have been mostly running in place and for some reason, my weight jumped up and stayed up last fall. I know that at 56 it is harder to lose, but I have become scared and frustrated. I do not want to never see that lower number on the scale! So, I bought a bodymedia device and I am recommiting to journaling and daily self-evaluation. I want this to be the year I make my goal.

I am also the mother of two wonderful sons and I have two adorable grandaughters. I have a wonderful husband and we enjoy ballroom dance. He is retired and spends about four hours per day at the gym. Needless to say, I am a bit jealous. I teach high school and I do love my work, thus I spend at least 50-60 hours a week on school-related activities. I still have to work on finding that work-exercise-sleep balance.

I look forward to getting to know you and making this the best year for the whole team!
