When the neighborhood YMCA closed, I got a Planet Fitness membership. I use the treadmill and recumbent bike. I need to develop more strength in my legs to do the elliptical for anything more than a few minutes.

You're welcome! Yes, she was wonderful! Grew up a lot & became very wise in her own way.

They say it is better to be poor and happy than rich and miserable, but how about a compromise like moderately rich and just moody?

Thanks Blazing Phoenix for the encouragement...and the quote. I didn't realize how delicious a sense of humor Diana had.

emoticon Ernie! Amish country....nice! Love it down there. Proud of you for not drinking or smoking. The latter is especially hard to overcome! Keep up the good work!

Hi, I'm new to Spark. I'm reading the book right now. I've found the website a bit intimidating or difficult to navigate. But I'm committed to jumping in with both feet so to speak. I live in Morgantown, which is right on the border of Amish country. I moved here four years ago from Chester County.

Good luck Stacey! A cruise to the Bamahas in great incentive and reward. Twelve years ago I stopped drinking. And a year ago stopped smoking. Something that helped me was to tell myself that I was doing it one day at a time. All I had to do is not drink or smoke for just one day. Unfortunately, while abstinence works for addictions like booze and cigarettes, it doesn't work for food, obviously, because we have to eat. I am new to Spark, btw.

I'm Stacey, and I'm in Johnstown. A friend of mine got me hooked on here once I told her that I was planning to lose weight. What a huge help! I can track everything on here.

Just booked a cruise to the Bahamas for June 15th. Looking to lose around 40 lbs until then. That's around 2 lbs a week. I can't wait to be able to be confident in a swimsuit again. emoticon

Bring it on. I'm done being overweight.
