TIme to refresh this page. I joined Spark People just about four years ago now. I lost my first twenty pounds but have not taken seriously my desire to lose about twenty more. While I no longer feel like a fat old lady, that's not enough. I want to feel and look like a fit old lady. I'm reconciled to the age thing. I've been young; I'm done with that. But that only applies to my hair and wrinkles (and maybe a little memory). Age does not give me license to be unhealthy because of how I eat. So ...

So I'm resetting my ticker at my current weight, hoping that will motivate me. You all of course, and Spark People, are what make me convinced I can do this.

There's more posting and chat going on in the Lodge than in the Cabin--but you are only required to post once weekly and nobody expects you to reply to all posts. I know what you mean about the socializing taking a lot of time. It's nice to have the support, but it can get overwhelming when you are busy.

I sent Pam an email that you would be interested if an opening occurs. There are 100 camp members--so with four lodges, that's 25 people per lodge. But only four per cabin--I may start chatting more there.

We add up weekly challenge points, and the four lodges compete against one another, but I think the whole team effort is ongoing. I checked but don't see an end date. I think that is what you were asking. If you are interested at all, let me know. They are keeping a list to bring new people in for those who haven't shown up this first week or who drop out along the way.

Yep, Wave Runners! I did BLC for quite some time, but a lot of the fun was starting to seem like busy work. The new team has a lot of challenge activities to choose from; you have to do one that is nutrition-related and one that is exercise-related. The rest is up to you: I'm working on Books and Kicking Clutter. Members belong to a four-person cabin, and each cabin is part of a lodge. So far it has been fun.

Sorry not to reply sooner. Two more full weeks of classes, then exams--so yes, it's winding down, but that always means marathon grading and semester papers coming in. I've kept on top of things better than usual, but it will still be stressful. It will be at least one more year before I can retire, and I may stay two. My house will be paid off in about a year, and one more year's salary without a house payment would really help my nest egg. But I don't know if I can stick it out--there are a lot of changes coming, none for the better.

How have you been? I moved to a new team this week, Camp Wannabefit. It's a lot more flexible than the BLC.
