I have been working on eating less processed food and trying to mostly fruits, veggies, seeds, nuts, beans, and legumes. <BR> I'm looking forward to being a part of the group. Vicky, thank you so much for the warm welcome.

Here's My Introduction :-) http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x11528x75742670 Greeting All. Chrissi from LaGrange, IL here. I signed up on SP many years ago, lost 20+ pounds, life happened and I put all of it back on and a few more. I didn't have a fitbit for about 3 years but now have an Inspire 2. Feels good to have a fitbit back. I am for 5000-6000 steps per day as my body allows me to. If I push too hard I end up out of commission for a day two. I've done it before, I can do it again. Cheers to a new start. Again. LOL <BR> <BR> I am a Licensed Massage Therapist wh...

My best friend (who is also trying to lose weight) and I decided to check in with each other daily and to both start using the site again. I'm always so good when I first start out but after a few weeks, trying to lose weight just takes too much mental energy and I go back to doing what's "easy" and just eating whatever. Hence the need to lose about 65 pounds. I'm ...
