Over about 2 years lost 80 lbs...made small sustainable changes, tracked my food, started exercising (exercise is non negotiable). Was active on SparkPeople as Martha324. Have had some hip problems for the last 2 years and this winter had to really cut back on my exercise & didn't cut back as much on my food and 5 lbs have crept on. Want to lose those and get back to my goal range. Looking forward to the challenge!

    Sorry, cat nurse!! I didn't mean anything negative about Wasilla, or travelling there, or living there. 🙇‍♀️🙏


    It was a poorly worded/overly vague reference to Wasilla's most famous/infamous resident! I imagine you're probably tired of folks asking you if you know Sarah Palin 🤪🤣

    Cheers!
