I'm in my late 50's. I never had weight issues until after I had my kids. I never learned about portion control or any of those things that are important in weight loss.

I've been on Weight Watchers and used their ActiveLink. I lost 10 pounds and have kept it off, but got bored with going to meetings (also meetings weren't always possible because I have MS fatigue).

I looked around and found SparkPeople and I really like the site and all of the motivational tools. I intend to be a SparkPerson for a very long time!

My Goals:
Ideally, I want to lose 60 more pounds.

I want to be more healthy to minimize any weight-related effects to my MS.

Personal Information:
I've been married to my husband for 25 years. We have 3 grown children between us and have 8 grandkids.

I have 2 silly dogs. One is a female Black Lab who is afraid of thunder, fireworks, or any such noise. The other is a male Hound mix, I think he is a Plott Hound, but I'm not sure. He is a couch potato and lives for food!

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in Feb. 2003, but had my first major attack in around March 1988. I am ambulatory, use a cane part time due to fatigue and occasional balance issues.

Other Information:
I love to read cozy mysteries, fantasy, urban fantasy, Westerns, almost anything.

I also like to crochet and do counted cross-stitch.

I love to see Florida wildlife in my yard and when I'm out and about.

Good morning Robin, I got your message yesterday about an all or nothing program. I'm not trying to do that but I have other things i'm worrying about besides calories. The doctor said I must significantly lower my caffeine intake so i'm doing that by taking away the coke and the chocolate. It does make me a bit miserable but so does going to the hospital and having those sticky pads put on my chest. I am still allowing myself Twizzlers and other treats but not those. Linda asked if i was getting enough protein, i've taken a hit in that area too Doc said I have to much protein in my blood not sure why that is bad or how much extra I have she quit, cancelled my appointment and moved to tenessee before I could ask her. Thank you for thinking of me any recommendations you can give me are always welcome.


I found this article, maybe you'll find it useful.

Cody has let Derrick run his whole game. He is going to watch the show back and see just how mieve he was throughout the game. Still crossing my fingers for Donny but if he does go I hope Nicole wins HOH and at least takes someone out before they get her! emoticon

We can escape for a bit this evening while we cheer on Donny and or Nicole during the POV on Big Brother! It helps me to take my mind off my bodily disabilities and struggles for a bit emoticon
Ps. I typed a comment on your status and hit save but it went to the page saying your feed is set to private so I hope you got the message.
