In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Welcome Linda, You have picked the best team. We're not running a contest to see who loses (and then gains back) the fastest. We are a slow and steady for life group. We're all going to succeed because we have the slowest loser as our fearless leader, proving it can be done.
Actually, I'm new to the team, but been on SP since 2007. My weight loss and internet access has been sporatic, but now I have a good connection. I am on a new med, that actually causes weight gain, so I'm fighting that, and often feel like throwing in the towel, but I will continue on! I work midnights at a local hospital as an ER clerk. Midnights are not easy for dieting, but again, I need the job and I will continue on!!!
I enjoy camping, hiking, walking, reading, and baking. I also like summer for the garden and fresh bounty we have. I am looking forward to getting to know some new spark friends here. This looks like just the thing I need!
