My weight has been yo-yo-ing all my adult life! And I'm really tired of it! I want to walk into a room and not feel self-conscious about my weight. After a lifetime of selecting clothes to conceal myself, I want to wear pretty clothes, try new activities & grab more gusto!

Update: I've been with SP for almost 5 yr. Lost the weight in 6 months. Rode the roller coaster of up & down the scale. Finally I'm ignoring the scale , making good food choices & exercising at least 30 min. 6 ...
My weight has been yo-yo-ing all my adult life! And I'm really tired of it! I want to walk into a room and not feel self-conscious about my weight. After a lifetime of selecting clothes to conceal myself, I want to wear pretty clothes, try new activities & grab more gusto!

Update: I've been with SP for almost 5 yr. Lost the weight in 6 months. Rode the roller coaster of up & down the scale. Finally I'm ignoring the scale , making good food choices & exercising at least 30 min. 6 days/week. Period.

Most important lesson learned: The bad habits that made me fat the first time (and the 128th time!) will make me fat again. This must be a permanent change in my life.


2013: After DH got a new knee & I returned to all my bad habits, I sat around & regained nearly all the weight I had lost.

Started over 3 weeks ago and am now on Day 20 of a streak of at least 30 min. of exercise 6 days/week. Feel better! Clothes fit better!

It's working...it always does. SP is the greatest! Just do it...and it feels soo great!

My "1200" minutes of construction was supposed to be "120". I corrected it later, but that doesn't stop the notices. What I'm "building" is a natural stone wall under our cabin (like siding). That is a lot of work, and it will take many more trips to the ranch before I'm done. Thanks!

Yeah, my rest day included an hour of gardening and 50 minutes of walking late in the evening. I had over 16,000 steps for the day. I still managed to rest for most of the day. I guess that's a good sign when you find yourself doing some activity even when you don't plan anything...

Thank you for commenting on my blog. Oh - how I miss fall in Colorado.. I know it's early yet but I used to love the crisp mornings and then later on the first snowfall.
It is hard to keep thinking like a thin person - so many temptations out there but I know that if I let it slide (too easy!) I need to start all over again - so I pick my hard :)
Enjoy the cooler weather.
Have a great weekend!

Eating out of control, eh? Well, I say if you're hungry, eat, but consider what it is you are eating. I make ethical choices now when eating (something I'm thinking about writing), for example, I would choose an organic vegetable over a commercially grown one. I also choose to refrain from giving large corporations who lack ethics my hard earned cash. I also do not spend my money on junk food because it is engineered to get you hooked, so you will buy more and more and more. Is that ethical? Not in my opinion. By framing things differently you can make cheezies very unappetizing!
