emoticon Caliope. I love this beautiful name of an ancient Greece Muse. You have my sympathy for your loss. Think you've made a great choice by joining SP. I'd like to share three points in response to your post. 1st - be prepared it'll take quite some time to learn about getting around in the site in order to make the most of the wealth of info and tools it offers; 2nd - I'd like to suggest you put yourself NOW in the first place to counterbalance the previous neglecting due to unfortunate circumstances and doing your duty - you'll find a lot of articles and sound advice on the importance of this attitude; 3rd - beware of the use of the scale - DO NOT allow its use (and the readings) become kind of a fixation - you'll find abundant info on this topic too illustrating and explaining how counterproductive such a habit may be. Wish you good luck. emoticon

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."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Hello. Today I joined Sparkpeople. I found this site via a book called The Flex Diet which outlines many practical ideas how to lose weight. My Dad just recently passed of pancreatic cancer. For the past 18 months I've focused on Dad, my family and not myself at all. So here I am one day after a doctor's visit I found out I've gained 20 lbs in the past 9 months, my blood pressure is high and I have a ton of anxiety.. not a pretty picture. But I'm determined. I bought a regular dial scale today, and I am committed to making healthier changes for ME! I look forward to chatting and I talk you in advance for your support.
