I am Becky and I am 46, married and mom to 2 kids ages 25 and 23. I was so glad that my friend, Debbie referred me to this site and I hope to make many friends as we go through this weightloss journey. Together I know we can make all the healthy changes that we need to get and stay healthy.

In mid September I realized that I wasn't feeling well and it was time that I did something about it and to date I have lost 22 pounds and I am aiming to lose 68 pounds more to my goal weight of 145 pounds. The changes I have made is eating sensibly and better food choices and walking 30 minutes a day. Now I know I have to start exercising about 30 minutes more a day and I will be doing strength training and more cardio. In the spring I am thinking about joining a water aerobics class and see how that goes. I watch "The BIggest LOser" on TV each week and it is a great motivater for me. I would welcome hearing from anyone that would like to have a diet buddy.

    Hi, I am Cherie and I am on the Fibro Friends team at Spark People. I wanted to tell you that we now have 4 co-leaders on our team and we have made many changes to help our members. We added a Reading Room thread on the team page that has a lot of really good information about Fibromyalgia and ways to help ourselves deal with the pain and problems.

    I would like to invite you to come back to the team and let us support you in your journey to healthy weight loss as we support each other. A lot of time has gone by and I hope you will come back to Fibro Friends and join us on our journey.

    Gentle and soft Hugs, Cherie emoticon

    Hi there

    Welcome to the Doing it with Problems Group - we aim to please and are open in our discussions. Not separating any particular problem from the whole person and body is the basic aim as one affects the other! We do have a grand moan and groan going - the 1st site to have such a thing! But it allows you to actually tell the rest of us how you are really feeling as opposed tot he "happy face" you put on for others.
    I hope you enjoy SP and have input for the Doing it with Problems team!

    Welcome aboard!

    Hi Becky, haven't talked to you in a while. Sorry. Been busy looking for a new job. My office is closing 4/15/08. Very hectic, but exciting.

    Hope all is well with you. Our weather here was gorgeous all weekend, sunny and warm. Got out for a one-hour walk yesterday (Saturday).

    Well, take care...... judi
