My BMI tells me I am obese, tho I only feel overweight! Who cares what label I have, I need to get in better shape. And maybe my high blood pressure will go down, too.
Wasn't really too motivated to get in shape til I saw SparkPeople! I was hooked in a day!

If I want to reply to a comment you made on my page, do I need to come here in order for you to see it? That seems a bit bulky.
I've already learned a little something about my eating, didn't get close to enough protein yesterday (love my carbs). That surprised me.

Hi Debby. I couldn't find you in the search, probably wasn't doing something right. I'm glad you found me. I'm really hoping SP helps me get a handle on my weight.

Parallel daffodil universes! I just noticed that the ones I planted nearly 10 years ago are up to beat the band this year and they look particularly lovely and joyful after a long long winter! Good to hear from you!!! :) B
