I am 40, an introvert, suffer chronic depression, lost 100 pounds in 15 months with Spark (5 years ago), gained it back, trying again! I live in Maryland and hate it. I enjoy playing Rift and other video games, reading, writing, cooking, amateur nature and macro photography, my German Shepherds, my Standardbred and TWH, and woodworking. I prefer to be "active" rather than "exercise." I do barn chores, go horseback riding, and enjoy riding my bike on rail trails and towpaths.

My Program:
I don't really have a program other than curbing my alcohol and junk food intake, increasing my vegetables, and continuing to be active with my normal work/hobbies.

Personal Information:
I'm in my 40s now and still enjoy bike riding, horseback riding, cooking, reading, writing, drawing, photography, woodworking, and chasing after my GSDs.

I have kids who are mostly grown (9. 14. 17, 19). I live in MD and absolutely hate it. I moved here from ND and would love to move back to the Midwest.

I like playing MMOs like WoW and Rift when I feel like sitting around and being a slouch.

I work at home as a medical transcriptionist for the Veterans Administration.

Other Information:
Don't make excuses. Your friends don't need them, and your enemies won't believe you anyway.

    It'll be GREAT to have you with us on the DAWGGIE Team !! I LOVE the ways you are active without doing things like yoga (a fav of mine) going to the gym (U have a WONDERFUL NATURAL Gym !). To me the way you live is the way we were intended to ! WOOHOOOOO !!!

    What is GSDs? You have me stumped. Ur kids are to young (well perhaps?) to have grandsons and daughters,,,, ???? Maybe not !

    It'll be FUN with you along with us ! I look forward to getting to know you ! Diane, ML (Motivational Leader). Right off I'd suggest if ur not already tracking all of ur food,, and exercises (natural is PAWsome !) that you do so. We love watching/helping others to reach their 5% Goal !!!

Drink up that watah (LOL I am from Maine,, we do not pronounce our "R'"s ,, if we had OUR WAY R would be REMOVED from the english language !

    I have a lot of rugs made from a loom. I love them, they last forever and wash up so nice. I didn't know that you could make all those other things with it too. Sounds like you have a lot of fun with it. Good for you!!
