Hi! I am BACK ON SP, ON MY TREK to get and stay healthy! My goal is to lose about 66 pounds. I previously lost 40 with SP in 2006, but due to my vertigo/migraines and my Mom's cancer, I gained it back, as of 8/29/11. I rejoined SP 10/7/14. So this is my Third SP Trek!! I love cats, walking, and Star Trek, hence "Trekpurrson"! I'd love to get some help from others, who have sleep apnea, bad knees, pre-diabetes. All can be resolved by weight loss! We can "trek back to good health"!

My Goals:
Rejoined Spark People on 10/7/2014--my 3nd Spark Trek!

I am taking charge of my health to beat sleep apnea, by losing about 66 pounds.


My Program:
I am walking at least 30-60 minutes 5-7 times a week, and tracking, using Fitbit Zip Tracker, and Spark People for blogging.
I am continuing working on a Streak: "Don't snack mindlessly in the evening."

    My body sometimes feels sore, but it works.
    I don't sleep well most nights, but I do wake up to fight another day.
    My wallet is not full but my stomach is.
    I don't have all the things I ever wanted but I do have everything I will ever need.
    I'm thankful because although my life is by no means perfect, its my life and I'm happy.
