*********************
In 2009 my doctor told me I would have to take cholesterol meds to lower my cholesterol and then when the Long Term Health Care application was rejected because I was 20 lbs over their limit, I knew it was time again to try to get to a healthier weight. Besides, I hated how I looked in a pic!
Really to stay motivated isn't very easy for me, I need a support system, and constant reminders. The weight creeps back in to my life when I don't keep my goals in check.
The SP Fitness Tracker is awesome, I love mapping the different routs we take. After logging my food I use the daily analysis, it is great to see that my eating and exercise was in sync or not!

I am also a self taught knitter and crocheter! I did need lessons for spinning though. I am a 1/2 way self taught weaver. That is going slowly though. Very complicated process.

I didn't realize you were having a problem. But don't give up! I know it can be discouraging. Just watch all those calories too. And keep a tight schedule.
