Welcome Julie, new team leader of Motivation and Positive Attitude Team!
I'm Yvonne from the Chicago Suburbs. 37. Pet parent.
I used to frequent the team a few years back, but have mellowed. I still spark daily. Streaking on the sparkpoint wheel and food journaling is my jam. :)

I'm Patsy. Live in Texas an hour north of Houston. I'm unmarrried. 2 exes have died, so am I a widow? A significant other also died after 40 years more or less together. I lived in California for many years, and in Valdez Alaska 4 years. I'm 86, my son & his wife live in Washington state, his 1/2 sister lives in Houston with her husband, & they are my kids by a different Mother. My little dog & I live in my dream home on a small lake with wonderful neighbors. I love my life except for the extra 30 pounds I carry around after losing 63.

I'm 61, two grown step kids, married 31 years and live in the Rocky Mountains. I'm happy to be at Spark. Haven't lost any weight yet, but that's ok. I'm more interested in being healthy as I've had some major health challenges in the past.
Best to you all! emoticon

emoticon Hi, I'm Diane
I live in a small, rural town in Delaware ... where there is mostly beaches and farms. I'm married 33 years this month and DH & I have a daughter who is now back living with us, along with her husband and our DGS, Ryan, who is 8.

We have many spoiled pets here, too ... a dog, Freddy; 3 cats: Marie, KC and Kitty; and a turtle named Lucky.

I work as an IT project manager for a large pharmaceutical company and typically spend the work weeks out of town living out of a hotel Mon-Thurs.

Nice to know ya, Julie!
I'm Michele. I live in TX, originally from the East Coast -- MA & N.H. I have 1 daughter who just turned 18, she'll be a high school senior this year. My husband & I have been married for 15 yrs. We live in Killeen, right outside of Ft. Hood. My husband is a Heavy Wheel Mechanic on Ft Hood. He frequently has to go to Detroit and Poland or Germany on TDY. I just recently was approved by my doctors to return to work part time. Last year I fell out/passed out at work. I fell backwards onto a concrete floor and fractured my skull. 911 was called and I was airlifted to a hospital in Temple, who then had me airlifted to a Head Trauma hospital in Houston. I have memory loss, loss of coordination and I can no longer taste or smell. But I am SO thankful to be alive and in relatively good shape. It could have been SO much worse!

Decide! Commit!! SUCCEED!!!
