I was on SP several years ago and lost 60 lbs. Awesome, right? I was running 3 miles six times a week, weight training 3 days a week and was in fantastic shape. Then I quit smoking (yep was running and smoking), had to stop running due to a really bad bunion and I got depressed. Had bunion surgery and foot is worse than ever. Fibromyalgia likes to bat me around. I gained 60 lbs in the past five years. My blood pressure has risen, I feel like crap.

I was on SP several years ago and lost 60 lbs. Awesome, right? I was running 3 miles six times a week, weight training 3 days a week and was in fantastic shape. Then I quit smoking (yep was running and smoking), had to stop running due to a really bad bunion and I got depressed. Had bunion surgery and foot is worse than ever. Fibromyalgia likes to bat me around. I gained 60 lbs in the past five years. My blood pressure has risen, I feel like crap.

I could go crawl into a hole or I could actively try and change my lot. I choose change! I did it once, I can do it again. This time running and weight lifting may be out but eating healthy and gentler activities like swimming and yoga will help tone me and raise my fitness level.

I have my own yarn dyeing business which is a really active job and I need to get into better shape if I am going to continue this for the next couple of decades. I want off the bp meds. I want less pain. Sparkpeople is how I am going to do it.

I love knitting, crocheting, spinning and weaving as well as wet felting. I started knitting 5 years ago (when I quit smoking) and have never looked back.

Howdy......
Hay. There. I have always been here. I have to it is the greatest support I have ever had. I have met all kinds of Spark people. I will be meeting Jude on April 22. We kept crossing paths and now that she is in WA State I have got to grab her before she leaves again.
It sounds like your doing really well. I am so happy for you. Eastern Texas seems a lot longer than I will ever travel. Nobody ever seems to come to WA state. HA Not much sun here. Your place sounds great and you sound so happy.
Your yarn sounds great. It must be a lot of work. There is so much to tell you. Life is really busy and now spring is here there is so much to do.
We are in this together and as long as I can afford the internet I shall always be a Sparked. Otherwise I would weigh 400 pounds. (;-)

Thanks for the goodie. Luvs. Me emoticon

Thanks for the Spark Goodie! We are all happy you are back. Perhaps the challenge will help your weight to continue going down. You've had a good weight loss but no one wants to have to get sick to lose.

OMG! Is that really you? WELCOME BACK! You have been in my thoughts but know when people don't want to be bugged about weight.
I am still over 200 again and again. Darn. I am really close and then I splurge well you know how it is.
I am hoping that you are well and we will hear from you more often. Your one of my first friends when I started this site.

I can't believe it is really You. Keep us posted on how you are doing. OK Been missing you
