"A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - this is the sum of good government."
"I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them. " Thomas Jefferson

Hi Chuck! to the Slowest Losers team You've made amazing progress since you started the same time as me and I cannot claim such an impressive weight loss. I agree it takes a daily determination and dedication to make the healthier choices and work that exercise in.
Feel free to start up a topic so we can continue to keep the chatter going. Keep moving forward and I love your attitude for the rest of the year.

I can be brave when learning or trying something new I shall be bold by pushing myself to the next level I can be fierce by being determined in setting my goals and reaching them I shall give a full 100% of me and feel FABULOUS about the woman I am

My name is Chuck from Oregon and new to the team but not new to Spark. I joined in Jan. 2010. I set my goal right away and have been consistent in reaching the majority of my nutrition and fitness goals. My starting weight was 277 lbs. and currently, as of this morning, 219 lbs. I still have a lot of work ahead of me as I want to lose another 29 lbs by the end of Dec. 2010. If I miss my goal I will not feel bad since I have lost a lot of weight this year and eating healthier. I have learned many good habits, but I realize they need constant tending.
