I carried an extra 25 lbs for 25 years. In the era of the "Biggest Loser" that may not seem like a big deal. I had always been told by family and friends that I could "carry it." The photo of me finishing a half marathon back in 2006 attests to that. Finally, on Jan 1, 2009 I decided that I just didn't want to "carry it" anymore, not for 13.1 miles, not up and down stairs, nowhere.

Now, that I've reached 4 years of maintenance, I never want to go back! Gradualism was my plan and now maintenance is my goal.

Thank you so much for the shoes and I'm glad I help you keep going! You're doing an awesome job! I will wear these with pride! And I don't know what the "10" was for but congratulation on it!

I'm thrilled that you explored my page, but, oh, dear, you're causing me to blush. You commented on a year-old blog about my now long-defunct efforts to develop an exercise routine/habit. I've been a slug for nearly the year gone by. Thoughts of exercise haven't disappeared and one of these days I'll really resume the effort.

And Nu is correct. You didn't hijack the thread at all. That you searched for information on the report of Jews being told to register in eastern Ukraine said much, all appreciated and welcomed.

Thanks for stopping by. In no way, shape or form did you "hijack" the thread. If you go back and read the comments by the group, all were welcoming.

Yes, I totally agree with you. Solidarity of ALL people is mandatory to fight evil. No one, in these days and times, can afford to be isolated. The world has become far too small and readily accessible in the new geopoliticism (can I say that?) of the twenty-first century. If more good souls like yourself speak out, then perhaps it will create a groundswell and evil will have to crawl back under that rock from whence it came.

Please feel free to stop by and visit any time and also feel free to comment. You are certainly most welcome there.

All the best,

Nu

Hi there! Wanted to thank you for stopping by my blog; and while looking over your Spark Page I noticed you carried around 25 extra pounds for 25 years. Sounds a lot like me. Age 50 I weighed 124, suddenly due to a change in our circumstances I ended up eating every single meal in a restaurant -- 6 to 7 days a week, for months on end. At the end of a few months I weighed 150. No surprise there. Then, horrors it even crept up to 162 for a bit -- stress, big time

I never have gotten down to the 124 and not sure I want to -- it might make me look like a skinny old woman, and to me, they look disgusting.

Have a great day sweetie!

I think you and I are very analytical. I have to dissect everything that I do. A body in motion is mechanical, thus, there must be a better way to move.

Thanks for your contribution to my blog.
