I am married to a wonderful man who happens to be my best friend. I love camping, reading,watching movies, playing Dominoes and spending time with family, especially my beautiful granddaughter, and friends. Lastly, while I am not perfect, I AM forgiven. Thank you God.
I am 46 years old and have a few health concerns that I am sure are weight related. I take medications for high blood pressure, high cholesterol and GIRD. My blood sugar is climbing dangerously close to diabetes. I have sleep apnea and sleep with a CPAP machine. My feet, knees, hips and back often hurt and I believe it is from the extra weight.
I started Spark People in March 2010. I have lost 38 lbs to date (50 if i start from November 2009) and my feet, knees, hips and back feel so much better. I am still on the meds for GIRD but I am no longer suffering with sever stomach pain after every meal. My clothing is literally falling off of me.
Believe me folks! This site works! And with the support offered here? We can all do this!
My goals are to lose 81lbs, sleep peacefully without the CPAP, come off the meds for GIRD, BP and Cholesterol, and have the energy to run around and play with my granddaughter!

    Hey Honey,

    Swing dance is a lot of fun. I luck out where I live in Central Jersey, Because I'm close to the Central Jersey Swing Dance Society (SDS), Philadelphia SDS, NYC SDS and Allentown PA SDS. PLUS Rutgers University Swing Dance Club. So I often go to one of them by myself and meet people and learn some new moves. I'm by far not the greatest but I'm not the worst. I would suggest learning the Jitterbug before learning West Coast or Lindy Hop Swing. From what I've heard it makes life easier to do that first. I started with Lindy Hop which is one of the harder styles.

    See if there is a Society or Club near you Google is an amazing thing.
