Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain? ... Why does Rice play Texas? We choose to [do these things], not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win..."

I missed this one. Thanks to BABIE_JANE for the reminder

TEN THINGS ABOUT ME:

1. Red is not my natural hair color - I know...shocking! (the real color is sort of a field mouse brownish color so that I blend in and hide from predators of course)

2. I am 44.

3. I have 1 super, amazing, awesome, son who will soon be 26 (yikes!)

4. I am a "major" computer geek. I used to design websites and still can't get the graphics and coding out of my system.

5. I love photography - "major" photo/photoshop geek.

6. I am a full time student.

7. I finally found my perfect soulmate and it only took me 42 years.

8. I am a runner at heart that loves her body more when she hits the weight room than when she runs.

9. I have two really cool kitties - a calico and a bobtail. With them in the house; I don't need cable.

10. I find going to the gun range and putting holes in paper targets to be an excellent way to reduce my stress after - of course - my workouts.

5. I’m trying to teach an old dog new tricks; & a young one for that matter. Following surgery and can’t have large dogs jumping at me or knocking me down, or dragging me on our walks (once I’m able).

6. I really don’t have to much if any weight to loose—before you boo & hiss too much see #4 again. I’ve lost about 15 lbs the hard way. I’m here because I want to keep it off & start eating & living healthier.

7. I come from a very abusive childhood & I’m tired of it screwing with my adulthood!

8. I love to read. I’ll read a book over watching TV any day.

9. I HATE house work! I can relate to the disaster ANANDAGIRL!

10. I LOVE to waterskii!

1. This is my first message on a SparksPeople forum. emoticon

2. I have a 6 month old puppy.

3. I've been married 29.5 years to a guy I love with all my heart.

4. I've three sons between the ages of 31 & 25.

5. I'm 50, and weigh more than I ever weighed when I was pregnant. In fact, have been underweight my entire life until I turned 40.

6. I'm trying to loose some of the 78 pounds I've gained in the last ten years. I need to do this because of health problems that have occurred (and continue to occur) because I'm overweight.

7. I'm not eager about doing any of this. I dread it. But I have to do it for my own well-being, and I'm going to need all the positive help and motivation I can find.

8. I've had a lot of careers in my life - ranging from being a professional violinist to holding degrees in history (BA) and political science (PhD,ABD).

9. I've been unable to work since the year 2000 because I've anxiety disorders and OCD. (think Mr. Monk and you have a good picture of how my brain works)

10. My life is stressed to the max right now, and it is becoming more and more difficult to face each day with a smile. Hubby's been unemployed off and on for 2 years (the economy!). We've no health insurance. We've lost our entire savings account. We've lost most of our stock investments. Life SUCKS!@!@! So - the exercise will help with the stress, right? emoticon

3. I'm preparing to go to law school.
4. I have an 11 yr. old cocker spaniel who I love to death.
5. This past year has been a really difficult one.
6. I feel so bad about my weight that I can barely look at myself in the mirror.
7. Sometimes I don't feel comfortable in my own skin or with other people.
8. I broke up with my boyfriend of four years a few months ago and part of the reason I want to lose weight is for really superficial reasons.
9. My aunt has been struggling with her weight ever since I can remember and I am petrified of ending up like that. Which is one of the reason I have shied away from weight loss programs before.
10. I'm an atheist. I come from a very religious family and sometimes it is really difficult to just believe what I believe.

2. I have a 9 year old daughter that I can't blame for my weight anymore as I WAY MORE NOW than I did when I was 9 months pregnant with her.
3. I'm a 44, 41, 44.5 - which wouldn't be that bad, if the dunlap didn't measure 45.5 (dunlap - part of stomach that "dun lap" over my pants waist.
4. I am divorced and not dating anyone - I firmly blame Mr. Dun Lap.
5. I no longer have arms, I have a wing span. This is one of the first things I'm changing about me.
6. I work, a lot. And I use it as an excuse for not getting things done, and yet I seem to have plenty of time to become an online Scrabble Queen.
7. I have a small menagerie of animals, 3 cats, 2 dogs and 2 dwarf hamsters.
8. My new addiction, since I can't have my evening cocktail, is Vanilla Chai tea, the brewed kind, not the milky sweet chai you get at the coffee shops, it's TOTALLY yummy and the warmth and wonderful scent make me feel like I'm treating myself every night.
9. I ADORE martinis and good wines.
10. I will be looking for as many low carb alternative foods as I can, so if you have any good recipes, pass them on!

1.) I'm an intensive needs paraeducator at a nearby Middle School. My students are the greatest thing in my entire world.

2.) I volunteer with the school's Unified Sports Team, a program that's part of the Special Olympics

3.) I have a Bachelor's in English and Secondary Education and hope to start on a Master's in Special Ed this year.

4.) I have two pugs, Boba Fett and Scoopy, and a cat named Twinkie

5.) Books are my passion! My favorite authors are Jonathan Safran Foer, Chuck Palahniuk, Sherman Alexie and Roald Dahl

6.) I LOVE tattoos. I only have one small tattoo on my arm right now, but I'm getting a much larger one as soon as I find the right artist for it.

7.) I love to hike, bike, camp, snowshoe, and just... be outside!! (when the weather will let me, and sometimes even when it doesn't)

8.) I procrastinate

9.) I'm left-handed AND a left-winger, hence my "name."

10.) I'm a tiny bit of a fashion nut. I can't wait till I slim down and can go shopping in boutiques, not just corporate clothing stores.

#9 is a good one, Sarah. I did the same thing when I first joined SP. Joined all these teams because they had something to do with something I liked. Tried to answer all the threads. I even tried to blog every day. Spending too much time doing all that took away time for other things, including working out.

It is good advice for all our newcomers. Take it slow.

1. Grew up in New York City, have lived in the Virgin Islands, Texas, northern and southern California, Texas again, Tennessee and now New Mexico....and I love it here.

2. My husband and I have been married 16 years, and have only four-footed children.

3. I'm very liberal, politically and socially, and strive to accept each person for who he or she is, not for what I think they should be.

4. A day is not complete without reading!!

5. I studied dance with Balanchine and Martha Graham decades ago.

6. My husband is a songwriter. I work with him doing public relations, booking.

7. Constantly surprised at being 57 LOL

8. I HATE drinking water.

9. I learned last time around on Sparkpeople not to sign up for two many lists and emails as I get bogged down. Stick to some basics: track my food and exercise and check in with a couple of groups, but don't get so busy here that I'm sitting on my duff and not doing other things.

10. I'm grateful to be here.

5. I am taking a ceramics class this last semester and love it.

7. I like to cook, but don't always have the time, which is one reason that takeout food and unhealthy stuff is such a bad friend of mine.

8. My kids make me smile whenever they are around, they are a large reason for me wanting to be healthier, so that they see how important it is.

9. I have a WII Fit, that I should use more than I do....someone push me onto it.

10. I have a sister right down the street who will back me up and drag me out and hold me accoutnable for every goal I set, until I find enough excuses for her to back off....(I need to learn excuses are not a reason)

1) Love my English Mastiff, Mercedes. She is a beautiful dog, therapy, service dog and International champion and American Champion I have ever seen. Very caring and loving.

2) Been married twice, marriage is not for me I guess. Was dumped by both, the last one was because I was "to fat and ugly to have a sexual relationship with" Like he was a great catch to start with. Oh well live and learn I say.

3) Family is very inportant to me. No kids on my end however my sister has 2 boys. One is 22 and the other is medically changelled 19. Eric is a great kid and on the outside you can't tell that his insides are really messed up. From Cronins to other things that Doctors can't even figure out he has been there and done that. Eric has his dream job at Disneyland being friends with Goofy. Ryan the 22 year old is still finding himself. Works hard and stays out of trouble.

4) My sister is my bestfriend.

5) I work for the California solar initiative and love it.

6) I love watching NASCAR and my favorite driver is Tony Stewart.

7) I enjoy watching football, go 49er's

8) Love sci fi, star trek

9) Singing is a way of expressing myself. I love to sing Karaoke however need to find a new place to go.

10) I love to go to Disneyland and watch the charaters work with the people. Makes me happy and also good exercise. If you walk around the outer edge of both Disneyland and California Adverture parks it is 5 miles.
