Yay, there is life out there! Congrats on your weight loss so far! SP is a good place to chat with people with same goals...good health! I love the Ellet area, was raised right down the street from Ellet in Tallmadge. Goodyear Metropolitan Park is a great walking area since you like to walk. Keep up the weight loss and positive attitude and you will reach your goal...I struggle with 10 pounds always, just have to keep it at that 10 and no more.

Happy Livin' the adventure!

Hi, I am new to SparkPeople and to this group. I am just learning how to post on message boards. I can't figure out how to post to Getting to Know Each Other 20 Questions.
Any help with that?

I am 58. I have tried Weight Watchers, but I got tired of the program changing after I got the hang of it.
