SparkPeople Team Messageboard An emoticon a day <em>252</em> Wed, 5 Feb 2014 15:59:33 EST 22 and wanting to change My name is Nicole. I am 22 years old and I am 173.6 pounds. I was a size 3 (120lbs) all through out highschool and in the four years since graduation, I have gone up to a size 13. I have never really been a fan of healthy food but I am trying. I want to not only be healthy but I want to lose at least 40 to 50lbs and look fit. I have made a few changes in life over the past year and more changes will come in the future.

I'm a semi-retired mother of 3, grandmother of 6. I remarried last year after being a widow for 35 years. I've lived in the same house in the same town for the same 35 years. My life is full of love & joy, but somehow I've put on over 25 pounds which I'm now trying to lose. This is not an easy task, but I strongly feel that I can do it with a lot of help from SP. I know I'm in the right place!!!!! Thu, 24 Oct 2013 19:36:12 EST How's your day going - stop by for a chat I had a pretty good day. I walked outside for 35 minutes and was so glad that I did. It was a perfect Fall day here in New Jersey - sunny & about 62. About halfway through my walk, the wind kicked up but I kept my pace figuring it was extra calories I was burning! I'm managing to stay within my calorie range - despite the Halloween candy we bought yesterday. How are you guys doing? Thu, 24 Oct 2013 18:55:37 EST How is your journey going? This is not an easy thing we're all doing together. Whether it's a few pounds or many pounds, it's hard work. I struggle every day trying to stay on track, but somehow I manage ( most days, anyway ). How is everyone else doing? Thu, 24 Oct 2013 12:13:01 EST
