Welcome to the team. I'm Chris and I too love to read and write. I am hoping to get published writing for middle grade children (8-12).

All I can say is take it one day at a time and start slow. And if you can't do something right off, keep trying. I tried to do the exercise, working on arm strength and I couldn't do it. But I kept at it and found that with work, I was able to do it. I will keep you in my thoughts and hope you can achieve your weight loss and gain strength.

Hi,
My name is Anasin. I am 32 years old and live in Honolulu, Hawaii with my husband Daniel, my son Avery, and my stepson Matthew. I recently returned to school full time as an English major, planning to write and possibly teach at a high school or university. My goal is fist and foremost to be a writer. We'll see what life has in store.

I am originally from Boston and although I miss the subway and the beautiful seasons, especially the colorful fall foliage, I have come to love Hawaii, mostly for the community I have found here.

I am very new to SparkPeople. I was looking into ediets and happened to come across it. I am both amazed and overwhelmed by it at the same time. I have no idea where to begin or what to do first. :)

I am 5ft 2 and 209 lbs. I'd like to get down to 150 lbs by December of next year. My weight loss is further complicated by the fact that I have cerebral palsy. Up until 2005, I was mobile and able to get around unassisted, but surgery and joint replacements in both of my feet, required me to be non-weight bearing for over two years. During that time, I lost a lot of muscle, stamina, etc. and though I am healed now, I still have trouble walking long distances and I am finding it hard to get back on my feet again, both physically and emotionally.

I am hoping I can find some support here, and I'd sure like to give it a try before going to the diet food plans that are so expensive.

I love to read and write. I just finished my first full-time semester and I got to try my hand at writing a play and even a baseball mystery novel in my genre fiction class. Right now I am reading a wonderful novel by Chris Cleave titled Little Bee. I look forward to meeting you all, writing more,and learning about SparkPeople. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
