We're a close knit group and have ended up friends. People may disappear for a while but they know they will aways have a home here.

We are lucky to have Morticia as our leader. She is a nurse and she is very knowledgeable about medical issues. She keeps this team going with EASY daily or monthly challenges.

Welcome to the team!! We have people on all sorts of plans and we encourage everyone to tweak their plan so it works for them. After you will only stay on plan if it becomes a way of life. I like fruits too. I'm a walker. I'm not allowd to run but I get a minimum of 15,000 steps a day.

Thanks! Btw I love the name Penelope! It was at the top of my husband's list if we'd had a girl.

I need to reduce carbs or I just won't lose weight. I have both endometriosis and PCOS and that means I'm slightly insulin resistant. That and I have 45lbs of baby weight still on me that makes everything that much harder. I tried some strict low carb plans (mainly the dukan diet) but I am a person that needs to eat fruits and vegetables or I won't stick with something. So I made up my own plan (detailed here: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_j
ournal_individual.asp?blog_id=4389646 ) and I've been calling it low carb for moderates.

When I set up this account, I was browsing through sparkteams and this one popped up and it is like the holy grail of sparkteams. This is where I belong for sure. So yeah, hi, I'm extremely happy to be here. Are there any new runners around? I just started the couch 2 5k plan and I'm really excited about that.
