Hi Everyone....well, I guess I finally found what I'm looking for...a place to start!! So, here goes:

1. Location Boynton Beach, Florida, USA
2. No, I was born & brought up in Boston, Ma (and suburbs)...moved to Florida 10/09
3. Widowed
4. All Growed up...2 girls, 1 boy...now have 5 grandbabies, from a girl age 31 marrying in
8/12 to a grandson age 12...three inbetween are 1 grandson age 27,. 2 grandgirls age
20 & 18
5. No animals, thank you....hate the thought of them dying
6. Playing on the computer, travelling
7. Joined Spark in May, 2012
8 Just me
9 Friendship and encouragement from those around me is a great start
10 I'm getting up there, although I only admit to 27 (see how smart I am...I have all
those grandkids and they're all getting older than me.... AND, they play right along
with me) My first husband died 7/92 after 38 years of happy marriage, I met my
second husband on Prodigy (old bulletin board) and we were married for 15 years
before he died in 2010...NOW, the single life for me...had enough of that sadness.
So here I am, still working on the weight thing and needing lots of help!! Looks like
I might have found a new home!

LIVE FOR EACH MOMENT...
TODAY well lived makes every YESTERDAY a memory of happiness and every TOMORROW a vision of hope!!

ELAINE...
(Originally of Boston, MA now living in Boynton Beach, FL)

Hiya all, new person here!
I wish I'd found this team a long time ago!

1. Location - Berkshire, England.
2. Is this where you are from? Born and bred in Lancashire, England, moved down South 10 years ago to be with my BF.
3. Married, single, etc. In a long-term relationship.
4. Kids ? (have any) No and can't.
5. Animals ? (have any) 3 Cats that live with my parents, plan to get a couple for myself maybe in a year or so.
6. Hobbies, interests: Reading, playing computer games, art, science, exploring the universe.
7. How long a member of spark? Oh years, but I've not really done well.
8. How many are you cooking for? Myself mostly, would like to cook for BF as well and institute once a week where we eat together, maybe more.
9. How can the team help in supporting and aiding you in meeting your goals? I just find cooking for one person so hard - I have physical disabilities so cooking is very difficult as it is, but buying fresh food for just one person is difficult. I can't really get my head around it and I end up wasting a lot of food.
10. Anything else you want us to know about you? I'm physically disabled and have a lot of trouble cooking, but will be getting a care package sorted out soon, so that should help. I am going gluten free and am just tired of feeling like rubbish all the time from eating badly.
