Thanks for the nice welcome!

I walked 3.2 miles on the treadmill today and for the first time I didn't struggle or have any aches in my shin. It felt great! emoticon

Welcome. Sounds like you have a good plan. Make sure you break it down into smaller goals.

Welcome Fleurgarden!! I wish total success. You can do it. I have much more to lose so it will take me a little bit longer to lose the weight. emoticon

I used to do Weight Watchers on-line and the discipline of entering my daily food and exercise really worked for me. But then life became a bit stressful caring for my elderly mother and other issues and I lost that discipline and regained the weight I had lost. Like many of you, I got discouraged and gave up for awhile, but now I'm back! I had heard about SparkPeople before, but I was committed to Weight Watchers before. But that program has become cost prohibitive, so I'm glad this option is available to us.

I'll be turning fifty next year (ouch!) and my goal is to be "fit by fifty". I had wanted to be fit by forty, but I'm not letting that failed goal discourage me this time. I have sixteen months to lose sixty pounds, which breaks down to just 400 calories a day. :-)
