I am so sorry, I introduced myself on several SparkTeams and I've not followed through. We most likely will be moving on February 20th - I begin an intense training on the 18th. Possibly will be working part-time within a week.

I'm doing my best keeping focused on what I eat. My body pain is much lower, thanks to my wonderful physical therapist who I went to 8 weeks - 3x a week. He got me working out aerobically for minimum 25 mins each session. When I 'graduated' I was presented with a cup and it says, "YES I CAN!"

Look for me on a more regular basis at the end of February.

Thanks for the comments - please don't forget me, I will always be thinking about you friends.

UPDATE: October 1, 2007
Degenerative Disks at L4-L5 plus osteroprenia at L1-L2-L4
Taking Neurontin, Calcium and Vit. D.

I'm able to walk and when my legs or back get tired, I stop - stretch a few times and then continue on.

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
To get to a healthy weight and stay there!

My Program:
No more weight watchers for me... SP is the place to be! There is so much right here, why pay dues plus fee at fitness club?

Personal Information:
My name is Carol. Married to Joel 45 years on June 26th. When we were married I was only 16.5 yrs. old, and weighed 113lbs! 3 children and 2 miscarriages later I once ballooned up to 274. That was twice... once in the late 1970's. (I did the Atkins and lost and did maintain quite well for many years).

Next time I gained a lot of weight was in 2002. It was slowly coming back on beginning late 1999. I did the low-carb and went down to about 225. Year 2006 I was fluctuating like crazy and and ended up at 209.

Went to Curves and Weight Watchers. Could not afford the cost as we lost our home and a few other things. I did see 184 lbs on the scale back in Oct./Nov. 2007.

We're going to see it and keep going - DOWN!

    I haven't seen you on the threads for quite some time and wondered how things are going with you. I just stopped by to say have a great and safe Labor Day Weekend and may all your plans become a smashing reality! It's the last blast of summer!! Fall is just around the corner.
    May God continue to bless you.

    Hey! Hope all is going great with you. I'm so glad warm/hot weather is here, time to get outside! I have a question about a group you belong to, Chirsitan Women over 50. I'm not at 50 yet but looking over the topics and postings it sounds like a nice group. The problem is I'm not yet 50 - do you have members that are not 50? Is the group strict about that?
