Tracking your nutrition and other goals really helps you stay on track! I am new to this site also. It will be 5 weeks in a couple of days.I have lost a total of 13 pounds.

Welcome Julia,
I am new also. I joined last week. I am here to get back on track too. I went through a divorce 7 years ago, and am happily married. I had gained 40 lbs over the last several years. I was able to lose 19 of it, in 2009-2010, but since that time gained that back. I had a few injuries that stopped me from exercising for over 7 months. I have always played hard, and ate big. I have to learn to eat in moderation, and exercise the same way. This after 50 thing, has shown me that! I am looking forward to daily activity, and a healthy change in food choices. Best of luck to you on your journey. I love new people, so feel free to write anytime.
Make it a GREAT day!

Hello Julia!
Welcome to Spark.

9/30/12 7:47 A

I am new to this site so thought I would take a couple of minutes to introduce myself. My name is Julia and I am 54. I live in Berkshire and am happily married. I have allowed myself to become overweight after suffering from prolonged periods of depression from a divorce 12 years ago. I am now resolved that it is time to get myself back in shape and intend to do this by losing 2lb a week.
I am going to join a local Rosemary Conley group and just try to eat more healthily and try to up my exercise which is close to nil currently.
I would love support and indeed am quite happy to provide it to others.
