I'm Patti and I live in Lacey, WA. I've been a spindle spinner for about two years, but now have purchased a table loom and am starting to weave. My first project--4 placemats, with mostly my handspun yarn.

I signed up for SparkPeople two years ago, but didn't make much headway or do much with it until after my hip surgeries at the end of 2013. I don't know exactly why it became such a challenge for me to lose the weight healthfully and check out all the bennies SparkPeople has ...

I signed up for SparkPeople two years ago, but didn't make much headway or do much with it until after my hip surgeries at the end of 2013. I don't know exactly why it became such a challenge for me to lose the weight healthfully and check out all the bennies SparkPeople has imbedded in the program. I love the SparkPoints and the Teams. It's become a game with me to get as many points and do as much exercise as I can.

In August I walked a 5K race. It was a big step from not being able to walk without a walker at the beginning of the year! And I realized that I've made my goal weight--well one pound short--so I've declared myself in Maintenance and am now taking on that challenge.

Lovely to hear from you, Patti! My mum lives in Pittenweem which is a small fishing village in the East Neuk of Fife. I am looking forward to the visit, but will have to keep my hands off the scones and shortbread... But lovely coastal walks and gardening planned, so that should offset the odd cookie! How is your maintainance balance working out??

Thank you for the support! Funny you mentioned clothes, I just organized my closet knowing that I'll need some old stuff this year, I have enough old stuff to lose 1/2 my weight. Have a great weekend!

I just saw you are in the same maintenance challenge as I am and wanted to say "welcome to the fun". For me, maintaining is the same as loosing mode, except I can up my calories a little - exercise really helps to keep things on track too! Congratulations for having arrived at goal and on your first 5K!

I wanted to say congrats on your 5k. Looks like we might be doing one in September. The kids heard about the Salmon run 5k on Sept 13 and want to go.
