10. Anything else you want us to know about you? I just moved to Texas and am having a bit of culture shock. I really, honestly, didn't think portion sizes would be so huge here and wow. They are. And fried! It's very demotivating to go out to eat and try to find something not fried and not huge.

2. Is this where you are from? Nope, born and raised in Michigan
3. Married, single, etc. Married
4. Kids ? Not unless you count the 4 legged barking variety
5. Animals ? Well I've sort of answered this, we have 3 mini-dachchunds
6. Hobbies, interests. Far too many, needlepoint, sewing, embroidery, gardening, canning, photography, gaming and more recently hiking
7. How long a member of spark? a month(ish)
8. How many are you cooking for? 2
9. How can the team help in supporting and aiding you in meeting your goals? some quick, simple, and yummy ideas. We are bad enough cooking when what sounds good will take too long to prepare for the enjoyment at the end. We're working toward a cook once eat twice thing for at least some meals so we have some good, from scratch cooking ready to go (with a bit of thawing) for those times we lack inspiration or motivation.
10. Anything else you want us to know about you? I'm not a fan of low fat, non fat, or sugar free anything. For all the benefit of things like this for the short term, the more I read and find negative impacts for the long term. I'm dragging my husband (kicking and screaming if necessary) back to the kitchen of our parents' days where food was made from scratch and didn't include things that are sold as food and are actually a bunch of processed chemicals (think cheese food, what is that really?) Despite us both working, we're getting there slowly though a few things will linger until I can sort out how to properly make them with our schedules.

I love your quote, and adopt it as my own. Less moaning, , more pushing the envelope of what I can do. I recently fractured a disc in my back, and am still in major pain when I stand or walk or pick things up.I rely on Schwans foods for meals, and Omaha steaks, Mackensy seafood, and other online places for "reward" meals. I'm thinking lobster tail for dinner today.

Hello Team! My name is Gwen and I've been a member of SparkPeople since November 2012.

1. Location (State): Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
2. Is this where you are from?: No, Military brat. Born in Ontario, travelled Canada a lot, settled in New Brunswick (east coast Canada, not NJ, where my parents were from) since I was 9. So I consider myself a New Brunswicker through and through and a proud Maritimer.
3. Married, single, etc.: Separated
4. Kids ? (have any): No kids
5. Animals ? (have any): No pets, but thinking about getting a cat, if I could get past the idea of cat hair everywhere and litter boxes.
6. Hobbies, interests: Skiing, golfing, making jewellery, reading, knitting
7. How long a member of spark?: Less then 3 months
8. How many are you cooking for?: For myself, but my roommate occasionally eats with me.
9. How can the team help in supporting and aiding you in meeting your goals?: I'm horrible about figuring out how much I need to cook for just myself. I usually end up cooking a lot more than needed and I'm not a huge fan of eating the same thing over and over. I think this will help me figure out what portions I need to cook for myself. Also, when I have to cook for just me, sometimes I take the easy way out and eat a frozen dinner or something like that.
10. Anything else you want us to know about you?: I'm always looking for new friends to support each other through the whole journey to living a fit and healthy life! If I can learn something along the way, that's a bonus!
