Hi Bill, My name is Janette, welcome to the group. You are way up north of me, I am in Escondido, Ca., which is close to San Diego, Ca. I started SP on Mother's Day Weekend, I weighed 170 then and since have lost about 8 lbs. I was going really good at first and then started getting discomfort in my right side. So I slacked off on some of the exercise, especially things that I realized was triggering it. So that slowed my progress down some. But will be going to the drs soon to try to figure out what is causing it. Not sure if I pulled something or if it's my gallbladder acting up. I think you are really going to like this site and group even if you don't find anyone really close to where you live. Everyone has just been really super here. I mostly walk my dog, do house work, yard work, gardening, exercise with different Wii games for my exercise. I live with my boyfriend and his 8 year old son, I have no kids myself unless you want to count my 6 year old dog that I adopted when she was a little pup. I am 53, been married and divorced once, no grand kids, not working out side of the house at the moment, hobbies are playing with my dog, hanging out on Facebook chatting with friends and relatives and playing games with them in there, other wise I probably wouldn't see or hear from most of them, here to shed the extra weight and get healthier, my username is my real name too. Well I think I answered the questions or at least most of them.
current weight: 168.5

Hi, my name is Bill. I just moved to the Hanford area. I'm really looking forward to this thing. LOL. I want to lose 115 lbs or more. Um...I really don't know what to write here, I'm not very good at this kind of thing. I would like to meet local people around here to do things with like walking and hiking, I'm not quite at running yet. I would like to become active in this group being that I am an ESFJ Guardian-Protector (cool if you got it!) I'm a really easy going type of guy, I wear my heart on my sleeve, and I may be as big as a bear, but I'm as gentle as a cat. Oh ya, and I'm a Leo..Gerrrrrrrr LOL I'm kind of funny, and no its not just my looks, and I am just really easy going.
Well that's it, like I said I'm kind of bad at this. I look forward to hearing from you all.
