hi everyone....
my real name is sandy.
I am a mother of 2 grown boys and have been married to the same man for 35 years.I am 54 years young and have a 4 year old granddaughter and 8 month old grandson and in eight weeks will have another granddaughter.I have done alot of things in my life such as quilting,crocheting,sewing,pai... decorating,soap making and even dabbled in some taxidermy.I like reading books and gardening and especially cooking.I have struggled with my weight issue for about 20 years and now i am tired of it and want to do something about it .I am hoping that finding this website and the support of all of you will help me to reach a long overdue goal to give me back to myself.

adding weight tickers
I went to ticker factory and set up a ticker for my fatsecret but am having a hard time getting it on my page.It keeps saying i can't add it because i share my info with members and leads me to my account. I have tried with and without shareing but still no sign of my ticker..Any ideas on how i can get this to work for me?

Does anyone know if there is a fatsecret version offline for laptops when you are out of town to record your food entries?
