Hello Blogosphere!

Hello out there in blog land! I've gotten a lot of requests as to the face behind my little drawings in my profile recently. I realized I had no recent pics of me, and decided to say "Hello!!".

I've been on a slow quest to lose weight. I've been lucky so far, as I have no real health problems - and I want to keep it that way. Last year I got a WII for myself, and began the WII Fit program. Its been a slow process, but I have managed to lose about 20 pounds since last year. I've fallen off the wagon a couple of times, but I'm back on now, and recently joined a fun group called ScrapNFit. Tiare runs a fun group, and has different ways to achieve your goals. Right now, I'm focused on portion control and exercise. I don't own a scale, so I depend on my Wii to give me my weight on a weekly basis.

Anyhow ... that's the journey I am presently on, and anyone who would like to take it with me, please feel free to post to me and share your journey!

And for those who wonder about the gal behind the caricature .. here I am ... trying to keep cool here in Northern VA.

Hello Kenyatta...nice to see your beautiful smile. I don't know how long we have known each other about 3 or 4 years now. However...I also am on a diet, I am doing Weight Watcher. I know the portions and counting the points is what I do right now. I been doing it 13 weeks... Only lost 5 lbs. At one time I had lost 7...but you go up and down. However I am much older than you. On my BD I will be 59. And believe me it gets harder the older you get. I do have health issues and that does not help with excercise. So the WII is not for me, I try to walk a little, and of course my grandkids 5 & 11 try to run me crazy every visit...LOL I would love to take this journey with you. Keep me posted on how you are doing. Stick with it...took us a life time to gain the weight, may just take that long to lose it...LOL! Good luck!
Hugs Sandra
