Hi! I am BACK ON SP, ON MY TREK to get and stay healthy! My goal is to lose about 66 pounds. I previously lost 40 with SP in 2006, but due to my vertigo/migraines and my Mom's cancer, I gained it back, as of 8/29/11. I rejoined SP 10/7/14. So this is my Third SP Trek!! I love cats, walking, and Star Trek, hence "Trekpurrson"! I'd love to get some help from others, who have sleep apnea, bad knees, pre-diabetes. All can be resolved by weight loss! We can "trek back to good health"!

I am taking charge of my health to beat sleep apnea, by losing about 66 pounds.


My Program:

I am continuing working on a Streak: "Don't snack mindlessly in the evening."

    I'll go out there and make my mistakes. I'll fall down,
    get hurt, cry, laugh, love, and get back up.
    I'll stand on the highest mountaintop and go into the deepest caverns.
    I'll roam across the world, visit the moon and swim in outer space.
    I'll let my imagination run wild and let my spirit soar.
    Why?
    Because when my life flashes before my eyes in those final moments,
    I want to have something worthwhile to watch, with plenty of
    love and laughter, good times and bad.
    I don't want to regret a thing and I plan not to.
    Remember, it's not usually the things you do that you regret,
    it's the things you don't do and leave unsaid. Laugh out loud.
    Cry in the rain. Love with all your heart and soul. Get hurt.
    Tell the truth. Go crazy. But never forget that you only get one shot.
    One shot at this day, one shot at this minute.
    One shot at this age. One shot at life.
    So make sure your life is one you will enjoy watching in your final moments.

    I am not perfect. I live on the planet Earth where humans live.
    Humans aren’t perfect. Never have been. Never will be.
    I don’t always wear the right clothes. I don’t always wear the right shoes.
    My memory sometimes fails me. I don’t look like a fashion model.
    I don’t cook like a French chef.
    I don’t always do what people expect of me.
    I am human. I am imperfect.
    But there is no one else like me in this whole wide world.
    I am unique. I am a miracle.

    So many people go through life standing tall and being a tree with their roots in the ground and letting the wind just shift them back and forth, not doing anything else. Monica Da Maren
