I'm so excited to become a co-leader for this class team! A little about me:
* like most members of this team, I joined in early May, 2012 * I've always thought I should get fit, but never took much action (and now I am 54!) * An Arizona native, I live in Phoenix. It is HOT! * My two greyhounds are a joy in my life, and keep me walking every morning.
Username DesertJulz because I live in the desert, and my nickname is Julz.

Thank you for your welcoming words. My name is Deb. I have 30-40 pounds to lose, so I appreciate your support, motivating words, and suggestions. I have been down this road so many times and thought I'd never travel it again. But, sadly, I put the weight back on and am starting over.
I am a life long veteran of the weight loss wars and have been on Spark People since July of 2011. Why do I call myself "100x50"? Well, my goal is to lose 100 pounds by the time I turn 50! I've lost 30 pounds since I started my journey, just over a year ago. I'm 6'1" tall and was over 358 pounds when I started paying attention again.
I also understand how frustrating a plateau can be. I've been dealing with some health issues that are greatly hindering not only my ability to lose weight, but my mood as well! But you know what? I haven't given up, so I haven't failed.
This is my first time leading a team, and I am very excited. I hope I make you feel as and supported as SP Class did for me when I first signed on.
