I thought I would finally change the text on this page, after nearly a year and a half. A lot has changed.

I have struggled with weight issues my entire adult life, especially since leaving college and settling into life at a desk. I finally started getting concerned after turning 40 (and as I kept gaining weight) when my doctor started raising blood pressure issues. I was struggling with GERD (or something similar) as well, and finally decided it was time to do something.

Someone suggested Spark People so I signed up, I really like the way the entire experience is geared toward being positive and supportive. I need that.

Since starting SP in April of 2010 I've lost 70 pounds and gained a lot of my health back. I'm running four or five days a week and lifting weights and looking for other activities. I've changed my diet almost entirely and made other changes as well. But I still have a way to go.

I had ninety pounds to go, now only 20!

I want my waist to be flat when viewed from the side. No belly hanging down.

Lifting weights 3X a week, walking 3X or more a week (usually five). Adding more activities as fitness allows, such as cycling or soccer.

    It's been a long time since I said that, or anything! I dropped out of SP for about a year. The consequences were disastrous!!! I went from that 127 to 140!!! It happened slowly at 1st then quickly after 135. I hate everything about the way I look. Plus I'm older now too!!! UGH! Guys are so lucky they don't have all those nit picky details! Anyway, I'm making my way back slowly. I have been working out since Jan. 15th with no results. I know my cardio is lacking cuz my treadmill is out of commission & I always hated running anyway!!! YUCK! I am no longer obsessed with the #'s on the scale! I just want to be able to fit into my clothes agin without stuff bubbling over everywhere! HAHA!

    Look for emoticon ward to hearing from you and what's been going on with you!
