Looking forward to seeing you on the boards!

Hi Everyone,

My name is Tanya, and I have been with Spark People 2 1/2 years now. I initially lost 25 pounds in the first 6 months and then got stuck and have been stuck ever since. I only have another 25 pounds to go, but as I am sure you know it can get frustrating when the scale isn't moving much.

I am currently trying something new, and the scale has moved down a little bit, so will keep at it. I am fortunate enough to work from my home, so that helps with scheduling workouts, however I do suffer from COPD, so I have to be careful not to overdo it.

I am a wife and mother of 2 young adult sons and live in Southern Ontario, originally from Sydney, Australia.

The Lord has blessed me in so many ways, I couldn't even count them all.
Feel free to drop by my page and say Hi, it would be lovely to have more sisters!

Also new here. I have been with SP for about a year, but feel off the wagon around December and now I am getting back on. I have gained back about 10 of the pounds I had lost and am trying desperately to get back down. I recently moved to FL and am motivated to get healthy. emoticon

Hi Leah, welcome to the team!

Welcome to the team Leah. Congratulations on returning to college. I did this also later in life and really enjoyed it.

Keep on track

Welcome Leah. I too was a student in my 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s, NOW, in my 60s I take classes to keep my certification up to date. I also taught college classes and found that women especially who returned to college in the middle of their life were my BEST and most committed students. Have fun on your journey.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

Hey Everybody,
My name is Leah. Just joined you guys today. I look forward to taking part in stuff here. I'm 50 years old. Have two beautiful daughters and a darling granddaughter who is my sunshine! Also grandson on the way. I am in college .. yes college lol at 50 but loving it. Pursuing art degree with concentration in photography. As for Spark People I've been here before. And am excited to be back. Oh ... live in Alabama. Went through bad divorce a few years back which just the emotional stuff I think lead to me not caring so much about me. Now I'm kinda sorta back on my feet and ready to do it the right way here.

Leah
