Thanks for the welcome! One quick question...where did everyone get the cute little trackers at the bottom of the messages? I am such a geek...visual charts are a big motivator for me!

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."

Hi there!

I've just joined SparkPeople this week and wanted to introduce myself. My "handle" is mensachicktn and my real name is Angie. I have joined because I need to loose about 50 lbs (again!). I lost 50 lbs back in 199-2000 and kept it off until 2008-09. Due to some health problem (thyroid barely functioning, connective tissue issues), poor eating habits and non-existent exercise, I have gained all of it back plus a couple of "friends". My mind is set now to get this monkey off my back for once and for all.

We have bought a treadmill (I call it the dreadmill...I have a love / hate relationship with the beast...love how I feel when the time on it is over...hate the thought of getting on it) and I hope to use it more frequently than I have so far. Probably the hardest two things for me are advanced planning/food prep and eating out. There are only my hubby and I home, so we tend to eat out a lot!

Due to the health issues, I was already trying to eat more homemade whole foods and drop convenience foods with all of the preservatives, etc. I have figured out I react HORRIBLY to corn in the whole or syrup form, but do ok with limited amounts of corn meal.

Enough rambling from me, I look forward to the support and friendships on the boards, I lost the weight before with the help of a couple of wonderful online groups way back in the day. Have a blessed day!

Angie
