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 and a runner, 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 fun challenge for me to lose the weight healthfully and check out all the bennies ...

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 fun 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 my first 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--so I'm now in Maintenance and am now taking on that challenge, too. So far I've been at weight for 3 months now and counting.

As the end of 2014 looms, I am so grateful for the ability to be active and for SparkPeople showing the way.

Thankyou for the garden gnome. Woke up to no power due to storm still having affects, even though this wet, heavy snow has ceased falling. It was nice to see a new sparky there on my page when I got here. I hope the power can stay on now, it still is fluctuating. I see you are also in the knitting group, knitting ( ?) Projects half done, good theme for many of us. I realized I have three projects going and need to start a fourth! Maybe I can cast on a sock later today. Headlamp works if the lights go out again! emoticon
