Welcome to SP from a native Hoosier (Indianapolis) who has lived in Louisiana for 40yrs.

I am losing very slowly as I deal with defiance(do not want to give up eating MY way) and emotional eating. I am going thru a tough patch but cont to read my SP.

Physicians, physical therapist, and other health care providers will come and go, BUT only you can serve as your body's CEO

Hello!

I don't win races, but I always cross the finish line. I'm not fast, but I try my best to become faster. I don't have sports endorsements or earn a paycheck, but that doesn't stop me from running. My pace does not define me. Just because "professional" does not precede "athlete" in describing me doesn't make my running any less valuable. I am an everyday athlete; leading a normal life, but with big goals and dreams.
I am an athlete. I am a runner. (runzoerun.com)

Hi there from a native Southern Californian who just moved to Jackson, MS, direct from Seattle. Confused? Me too.

This is a great group. Wander around the website and get acquainted at every moment you can. It has so so much to offer!

Welcome! My body defaulted me to the slow way of losing, but I think it is better anyway. So I am celebrating slow, but permanent weight loss! Your half pound a week sounds great!

Hello everyone: After reading the blogs the past few weeks, I just today discovered that there was a slowest loser team. And I decided to join.

When I first joined Spark, that was my goal. I know me and how much I enjoy food. I *knew* that not eating would not work for me. That's how I became a slow loser. Basically, I wanted the both of best worlds. And I feel like I have made a good compromise for myself. I've lost 30+ pounds since the middle of February. As long as I lose a 1/2 pound a week, I'm happy!

Now I've prattled on. I'm glad to be here and am looking forward to getting to know all of you.

Huggz,
~Gayle~
