I am new to Spark People, encouraged by my cousin to join. I am 50 yrs old, disabled, live in Phoenix, AZ (orig from NH), with my 2 girls - Wynda (Shih-Chi) and Bailey (Pug-Shih). I have two adult daughters and am divorced. I am a seamstress, quilt, love animals and children. I began my weightloss journey in January weighing in at 332 lbs. In March I had Gastric Bypass surgery, weighing in before surgery at 306. Today I weigh 240. The heat here prevents me from enjoying the 5 miles per day I was enjoying on my tricycle, so last Friday I hooked up with Desert West Community/Senior Center, where they have a Fitness Room with all kinds of fun stuff to work out with! I will be going on Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays and am very excited to get back into exercising - plus they have Senior Aerobics too! Well, I guess that is all I have to say for now. Nice to meet you all!
