Way to go Roxy! Thanks for sharing all that you did. Canada! Wow! I love it. You're my second friend from the confines of Canada and I'm loving it. 1989, that was the year for the Bears. Yes, Ditka gave quite a bit to the game back then and he put that team into a consistency that never seemed to be there in past years. He was tough, yes, but that came from him being on the team itself and learning from the pros! He was awesome and he got the job done. Kudos off to you for deciding to choose the Bears as your one and only.

We've had some really good changes in the years past. They seem to be working really hard to getting things together and right. I'm believing that they will do it this year. They improved so much last year over the year before, I can only believe that this year will be GREAT!

Yes, I, too, am hoping we'll be able to have a football season this year. I was heartbroken when they cancelled the Blackhawks this year as well as the rest of the football season. Oh well, c'est la vie!

But congrats to you my dear for realizing what you have to do. I know it's tough during this quarantine but I found that the quarantine has actually given me even more time to figure out what I have to do with my exercising. I've gotten into my yoga routine again since my 3x/week jaunt to the gym to have my time with my personal trainer has come to a sudden halt. THAT killed me so I know what you're talking about. But you were so much more active than me, I can only imagine how disheartening it must be for you to not have those activities in your life in your schedule any longer. But cheer up! We'll get you back on target and on track.

Hi there! I'm Roxy from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan (Canada).

Weight-loss wise, I was doing quite well before the Coronavirus became an issue. I was losing anywhere from two to five pounds a month and had made it down to 171 pounds. I cycle to work year-round, walk my dogs twice a day, curl in a league during the winter, and lead an active lifestyle. I have been laid off during this pandemic, so have been getting less activity than I normally do. I've been trying to maintain healthy choices and eating, but it has been very easy to consume more calories than I normally would. I have gained back about seven pounds since March, so I better get back to my normal ways soon so I can get the scale moving in the right direction again!! My goal weight is 120 pounds, and I want to be close to that by December of 2021, which is just over three pounds a month. Nice and achievable, a healthy pace to reach that goal and totally realistic. I WILL DO IT!!!!

How I came to love the Bears? When I first was dating my husband in 1989/90 I had no knowledge of the NFL. My husband and his friends were huge fans of different teams - we watched Monday night football every week and were glued to the television over the weekends watching the games. I wanted my own team to cheer for too, so I paid close attention to all the teams we watched. Mike Ditka was the coach of the Bears at that time, and I really was struck by his love of the game and his passion at motivating his team to win big. I loved the fans, I loved the team, I loved the history that existed!!! I LOVE THE BEARS!!!! :) Over the years, I only feel stronger and more tied to my team...

I am looking forward to meeting more fans, and interacting together to meet our weight loss goals and talk about the games each week. I am praying things will be able to get back to somewhat of a "normal" soon. Let's all stay safe until then!!!

Ok, let's all make a new and clean start here. This team appears to have been a bit inactive so let's see if we can change that.

Let's start fresh here and begin a NEW INTRODUCTION area for all of us to utilize to let our team know about you and what's important to you so we can all be there for you as you continue your journey here at SP to achieve your needed results!

Start off here by letting us know a little bit about you and perhaps a bit about your love for the Chicago Bears and how it all started.
