UPDATED: I'm now back in Germany. I'm a world traveler it seems. I really love to enjoy life, and seek new ventures and adventures. I struggle with my goals but I never fully give up. I'm back in action and my goals are many starting with losing 5lbs per month and training to complete a 5k run.

Hi, I am new to Quebec City, Canada from USA. I also rejoined Spark. I quit my 6-figure job in US to start a new life in QC with my husband who was up until recently unemployed. I don't speak French and I need to rethink how I live.

I'm hoping to improve my physical and medical health. I want to lose 50lbs this year through exercise and better meal choices. Its hard to do with a husband whom I cook for, and lounge with when he comes home. I also have a medical issue where no doctor knows the cause. I have a constant low hemoglobin (hgb) where I am always anemic. I have regular iron infusion and blood transfusions. It makes working out very difficult for me, and I'm always tired. I had a surgery to remove fibroids which helped temporarily but now I'm back to low HGB again. (sigh...)

Since my daughter originally signed me up for Spark, I know that I'm not alone in wanting this. I know I can do it. If anyone would like to friend me, or help motivate me, or even just near the QC area and want to chat or do anything pls let me know.

I look forward to Sparking with each of you. Oh yeah, and if there's anyone in the area want to help with my French, lol, I'm up for that too. Thanks! Merci!

    Looking to stay focused through the upcoming Holiday Season? Want to get connected with a Team to support you through your Journey to a Healthier Lifestyle? If yes, then consider joining the Biggest Loser Challenge that starts in early December. Each week 10 teams of 24 Active members do fun nutritional and fitness challenges. The challenges promote a healthy lifestyle. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge, it can be modified to meet your needs. I hope that you decide this might be for you. If so, you can leave your name on the Wait List for the Winter challenge. To get to the List visit my page and click on the “BLUE BIGGEST LOSER” Icon; copy The Team Page Address below or let me know so I can send you an invitation. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Chit Chat thread.
    If searching through Spark enter Biggest Loser Fall Challenge All Teams.

    Sorry I just saw your call on the team posts. If you are still interested in making new friends, I was born and raised in QC. I live near Montreal and work there. Hope you are able to adjust to your new environment
