Hi, my name is Lynn. I am tired of yo yo dieting and want to learn how to establish and maintain a healthy weight. I feel so fortunate to have found this site and I marvel that it is free. How good is that? To be gifted with such an amazing resource with incredible information and support.? Thank you to the founders of SparksPeople - you are amazing folks.

I have chosen to only participate in one or two groups as I find it time consuming to be dedicated to the site and I want to really get all I can from all that is here.

I will retire within the next few months and I want to be healthy, energetic and active in my retirement. I also want to enjoy buying new clothes, not just struggle to find something that fits, if you know what i mean.

Letter to Self: Dear Lynn, congratulations on finally deciding to lose weight and keep it off. There is no doubt you can do this. Others look to you for your strength of character and positive energy and all you need to do is to focus some of what you give to others inward to yourself. Treat yourself as your own project. You have all that it takes to succeed at this and at anything else that you try. You are already doing an amazing job at losing weight and staying motivated. Keep up the good work!

    Thank you for spending the time to read my blog - I think having just put that blog together - the first time I have actually put the developing story together like that and now the penny has dropped - and I am beginning to realise what I have done!! So - I'm just a bit slow in the uptake!! LOL!!
    However it has proved one thing to me – that if I can do it anyone can do it and you will find that the results are way beyond your wildest dreams!!

    Hi there!
    Thanks for the comment on my last food blog.
    Chickpeas is one ingredient I've never yet got around to using. I keep looking at them on the shelf in the shop, and then walk away - again emoticon
    I'm going to have to just go for it, and give them a try.
    I already had some comments from my younger son about his experiences with chickpeas, to help me along.
    Have you cooked with them, yourself? If so, please mail me with comments. Even negatives are a help!
    Yes, I will buy a packet, very soon, and give them a try.
