I started sparkpeople in Jan 2008 weighing about 160 lbs (I didn't have a good scale, so I'm estimating). I eat right and have managed to maintain my goal weight range of 120-130 for almost a year now. My health philosophy was learned in Europe: "Everything in moderation" and eat quality food- it makes a difference.

"I know, simply reciting these facts, most of which are drawn from poultry trade magazines, makes me sound like one of those animal people, doesn’t it? I don’t mean to (remember, I got into this vegetarian deal assuming I could eat eggs), but this is what can happen when… you look. And what you see when you look is the cruelty - and the blindness to cruelty - required to produce eggs that can be sold for seventy-nine cents a dozen."

Pg 318 from The Omnivore’s Dilemma

Buddha: Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.
