I want to lose weight the right way and keep it off! My goal is to basically feel like CHERRI again!! I miss that happy/not so tired/not so cranky chic!
I am walking (Got myself an OMRON Pedometer & LOVE IT) at least 10,000 steps a day and I'm counting calories!!! I also attend Weight Watchers meetings. Not so much for the points counting but for the accountability to ME!
I'm from Bluefield, Virgina.... small little town that I love!

The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. Ive been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me.

How wonderful that you are doing this together with your husband - it's so important to have that support system. I wish I had the same! This is also a great opportunity to be positive role models for your kids - don't shy away from getting them involved in healthy meal planning and cooking!
Isn't the pedometer fun! I have mine clipped on - my goal is 10k steps (hard! but doable!).
I find that the spark message boards here are particularly helpful for keeping me engaged and active. I use the food and fitness trackers regularly, and they are particularly important for keeping me focused.
