I've been on a constant battle with weight pretty much all my life. . . and after losing 60 pounds with the help of Sparkpeople and becoming a gym rat, I ended up needing surgery on both of my knees. I did get through both my children's weddings before the surgery and the surgery's ended up being 6 months apart. Now I've had a year to recover and gain back 40 lbs, and it's time I got back to a regular exercise routine. After stationary biking since the beginning of December, I finally feel like my knees can take some pounding so that I can get back to walking and the treadmill. I did go the Nutrisystem route for 3 months last summer, and lost 15 lbs, but that food is really tiring after awhile! So I'm ready to get back to life, counting calories, exercising and eating right!! Yay!!

My Goals:
To be a better me! I want to feel better physically ( and mentally! ) and hopefully add a few years to my life!

My Program:
I need to keep going with my exercise goals each day and keep my calories in line. I'm not in this to deprive myself of my favorites, because I know that is not life. I'm learning how to judge what I need to do to make the best me that I can!

Personal Information:
I work at a desk on the phone all day - not good for much activity! I have two adult children who inspire me and a wonderful husband that I've been married to for 31years!

Other Information:
My husband and I love our vacation time and travel in our RV when we can. A couple of my hobbies are gardening, and scrapbooking - and spending time with my family.

    Hi, my friend! Congrats on making it through that hectic wedding schedule. Love the black & white theme. I had wanted a black/white wedding but couldn't find a bridesmaid dress I liked, my niece found a gorgeous platinum dress that sorta matched my wedding dress so we went with that instead. I love the neutrals, I think they're very bold and you can use any color scheme with the flowers. I'm on many teams, just not posting on any, lol. Mar had started a new firecracker team if you're interested but the *spark* just isn't there for me. It's hard to find a team that really gets me moving any more so I'm going it alone for now and keeping in touch with friends on their spark pages. I saw where TBL had a new round starting up but I can't find the right fit for me so didn't sign up. We'll get through this though, one way or another. Keep at it!!

    Hey Deb, Welcome to BLC11... I was so happy to hear that you were returning and especially back with Dark Blue. It's been a while but we will all get each other back in the routine and headed in the right direction. You've don eit before, I know you can do it again. Get the treadmill out and back at it.
