I have always been a "big girl" and have finally decided that it's time to make some changes in my life. I have never been an emotional eater but I LOVE food and am always thinking about what I would like to have next. I am tracking my food and making better choices now.

I am a workaholic with an office job which doesn't allow me much movement through the day so I have vowed to stop sitting on the couch watching TV when I get home at night. I am going out walking for at least a half an hour every evening instead (my original goal was 3 nights/week). I know I didn't put all of my weight on overnight and I don't expect to lose it overnight. This is going to take some time but I am committed to making it happen.

High blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes run in my family so my goal is to lower my blood pressure and to avoid developing diabetes. I want to be much healthier in general and look forward to having more energy.

A co-worker turned me on to SP and I haven't looked back! I've logged on everyday since.

I hope I can make a go of this and look forward to my journey towards a healthier life!

Personal Information:
My name is Gayle and I live in Ontario, Canada. I'm married to a wonderful man who is my best friend and I have a job that I absolutely love. Unfortunately that job is an office job so I need to be vigilant to ensure I'm eating healthy snacks and I have to make the effort to carve out time to exercise.
