Hope I'm doing this right.
32 y/o mum living in St Catharines. Lived my entire life in Ontario and love Canada.
I've packed on some pounds since being laid off from work last year, and with some changes approaching in my life, I am feeling 'weighed down.' ;o)
Former triathlete (totally amateur) and hardcore cyclist, I am very disappointed with what I have allowed myself to morph into. Not only have I gained weight, but also started smoking...and I'm an asthmatic.
Okay, think I'm sharing too much for the location location location thread ;o)
Have a great day,
Dre

I've had bilateral knee replacements in 2001 and 2002. Love my ortho surgeon. If he hadn't done the knees when he did, I know I would be in a wheelchair now. One of the best things that I ever did. Have an inflammatory arthritis and dealing with skeletal deforminties in my left ankle with tarsal tunnel syndrome...just like carpal tunnel syndrome but in my foot. Saw a specialist in Hamilton in the summer of 2008 and now wear brace boots, which are very, very helpful. At $1700/pair, I am lucky to have coverage to pay for these. My first pair were red...if I was going to have to wear old lady shoes, I didn't not want them to be black. I love my red boots and they sure stir up lots of conversation...and more importantly, keep me mobile.

G'day. I'm from the (Ottawa) Valley, eh?

Being silly. My origins are in BC, although I've lived in a total of five provinces.

I think Ontario's home now. We've been here for 15 years...longer than I've lived anywhere else.

I live in London, ON with my husband and 2 small children. Originally from Toronto. I do find losing weight hard - motivation is my major issue. I have the gym membership but can't seem to get off my butt and get there! By the time the kids are asleep I am exhausted and just love sitting on the couch with my husband, watch some TV and enjoy the quiet. I am NOT a morning person so getting up early and getting to the gym is not going to happen!!!

Hey fellow Ontarians!

I live in Brighton ON- halfway between Kingston and Toronto on Lake Ontario. If you're driving on the 401, it's right next to the Big Red Apple.

I grew up in Cochrane (Ontario, not Alberta), so hello to all the northeners here!

If you accept someone else's idea of reality and personal limits, you'll have no control over your own destiny. You can only go as far as that view will let you.

I lived in Toronto for a number of years but it got too busy. Everywhere you go is a traffic jam. The people are great, the foods fantastic, but it is always busy.

I live in London, now and it just right. Big enough to have a the shopping and services I need, but small enough that I can get around easily even in rush hour.
