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.
