Not feeling like a teen anymore. I have three amazing kids ages 11, 8, and almost 2. I have an obsession reading anything about health, fitness, and nutrition. I love computers, reading, volunteering, exercising, and entering cooking contests.

My weight is slowly going down. I went from a size 16 to a size 14 (stayed at 14 for two long years), then finally size 12. I'm noticing a big difference in my arms.

In February 2009, I went through precancer treatment. It took a few weeks to recover, but overall things went well. I didn't post my nutrition tracker on here because I usually don't keep up on it. :(

Now my weight is staying between 123 to 125. I keep on gaining a pound then losing it throughout the week.

    I wrote this on the Team Leaders page and then decided to put it here also.

    I hope you are not leaving SP altogether. Perhaps cutting back on the number of teams. Dropping a leadership role as team leader and consecrate on the healing you need to do. Which ones are giving you a lot of support? Hanging onto those might be good for you.

    I wish you well.

    Joyann: Thanks for your comments on my thread. I was thinking about my weight-loss tools during my walk yesterday morning and wondering what tools others are using. When I got home and logged my cardio minutes, it came to me to ask others through the SparkCafe. Speaking of great tools!!!

    I see that we both enjoy reading about health, fitness, and nutrition. Reading is both my vocation and my avocation - I am a school librarian. Which is how I came across the Mark Twain quote. I like to use it as I meet with students at the beginning of each school year. For some, it really gets their attention and boosts them along to read more.

    Thanks again for stopping by. Have a happy, healthy weekend! Best wishes, Deb PS Love the picture of your children. They are beautiful!
