I just turned 40 and would like to enjoy the next 40 years in a healthier way. I am married with two kids. My daughter is 21 and my son is 19. Neither of them live at home. I also have 2 kitties that I spoil rotten. A female named Sammy and a male named Orion. They are both about 5 years old. UPDATE: Well, it's been a year and 1/2 since I've been a member of sparkpeople and I've accomplished a lot of what I started out to do. I've lost the majority of the weight that I wanted to loose, I've started exercising regularily and I am learning how to maintain my loss. I still want to loose a little more weight and I plan on doing a mini-tiathalon this spring as walking in a couple of 5Ks. I love this site - I've gotten so much information from the articles and people on the various teams. The nutrition page is a valuable tool as I post my menus every day and use it to verify that I am getting in all the nutrients that I should. UPDATE: Ran my first 5K on 9/7/08. See my blog entry for more information. It was fun and I am definitely going to be running more. I have gained 20 lbs since this past spring and plan on going back on plan to loose it. Have set a mini goal to loose 12-15 lbs by Halloween. 11-20-08 Well - didn't make my mini goal to loose 12-15 lbs by Halloween. In fact, I gained a couple. Really bummed but determined not to let this get any further out of hand. Tomorrow marks the one year mark since I hit my goal of 137.8. I'm now 20 lbs over that. Though - that's not really too bad considering every other time I've lost weight in the past I gained it all back, plus. And in a lot less time than that. Maybe I am learning to live a healthier lifestyle...crazy, huh? Update: it's been a few years - 13 actually since I first joined. I'm now 53 and weigh almost 300 lbs!!! 😳
