I am on Spark People to change my life for the better. I am getting healthier day by day. I have struggled with weight for the last 15 years, but I have been at my highest for the last 7 or so 175-190. My last real attempt (longer than 3 days) was back in 2008 when I got down to the high 150's, but after 6 months, I was right back up there. I am committed to getting back to 130.

I am treating this goal like a full time job. I am showing up everyday to do my job. I am working at it physically. I am devoting my time, by checking in everyday to SparkPeople, I am planning my meals, my shopping list and hopefully finding new connections here as well.

I welcome each of you, who stops by my page to become a friend. Let's encourage each other on this journey, as we begin to become the people we wish to be~

    Hi Kate, welcome to SparkPeople!! There's lots of good stuff on here. But it can get overwhelming. Take it all slow and make it work for you! Will be glad to help if you have any questions.

    Red Sox Nation does have chats to talk about our boys as well as Challenges to help motivate each other.

    Hi Deb,

    So excited to found my initial post and happy to hear your feeling better. I am in Dennis (best beaches on Cape). I have worked at Cape Cod Hospital on in off since 2000, (Spent a couple years in central Florida as a case manager in insurance & pharmacy-not a fan). I love working with the people and do general med-surg. I could never do ER work, but admire the ones who can( I think your all brave).

    My new year, new journey has been going super. I just love the Spark people site. It keeps me focused and motivates me daily. I am not the best when it comes to computers, so I am slowly getting the hang of all the site has to offer. I am waiting for my daughter to visit and give me a lesson or two.

    I am so glad you stopped by and added me as a friend. I'll be looking forward to your post and support. Which I hope to offer you as well. By the way total bummer @ the Pats, right!

    Hi Kate,
    I added you as a friend as well. I missed your original response to my post on the 40 something board. We do have a lot in common! Where on the Cape do you live? I have a brother in Plymouth and an aunt on the Vineyard. What kind of nursing do you do? I'm in homecare now. I work for Southcoast VNA. I also spent 10 years in the ER and several years in long term care. Hope your healthy journey is going well. I'm finally feeling better and getting back on track with my exercise.
