After much time, and many minor and major life events, I have returned to the Spark realm to continue my quest!

Boy, when I said that in my head it did not sound nearly so nerdy. I guess it just goes to show my true colors.

I'm in my 30s and have been overweight my entire life. Being large has been a part of me for so long, and now I've grown tired of it. I made a pact when I turned 30 to do everything in my power to live life for as long as I can, as much as I can.

And that's my attempt at an introduction.

*preserved for posterity sake, after all it's over 2 year old*

I was never a social media butterfly, and of all the pages and tools out there, I may just use this one.

To Amend the above statement, written a few months ago now. I may just use this one for my own nefarious purposes while trying to take over the world. No, wait. I mean the other thing. While trying to lose weight thing. Ah well, we can't have it all.

Or can we?

    I was never much of a social butterfly either, but I've found that I really enjoy the community aspects of Spark People. It helps to know that others are going through (or have gone through) the same struggles and fears that I am facing. Yes, in the end it all comes down to us, but that doesn't mean we're alone in this.

    I hope that you are continuing with the gym and having success improving your diet. These things can absolutely change your life, I know they have changed mine. If you are determined enough, nothing can stop you. Stay strong!

    PS. I love your page background.

    Howdy and welcome to the Browncoat Team!

    We're a kind of laid back bunch that enjoys any and all discussion of Firefly, Serenity, and anything our BDHs are involved in. Or whatever else we decide to talk about! Please nose around and feel free to jump in!

    If you would like, please join one or more of our team goals. They are set up to emulate our BDHs - a shiny goal for any of us!
