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!

Thanks for the comments on my activity feed. The "moving boxes" was really hauling 50-lb bags of feed into my Kawasaki Mule and then carrying it up ladders to my wildlife feeders. I hauled 20 of those bags this weekend. Since they didn't have a category for that, "moving boxes" just seemed like a similar activity. I guess I need to make my own category!

Thanks for your comment and support about my running. I used to think that running for 45 minutes or more was completely impossible, something that only super "athletic" people could do. I am totally NOT athletic, but Couch to 5K got me started and it's just gone on from there.

I will NEVER forget the first day I ran 4 miles...I couldn't believe it was me!

Hope you're having a wonderful week and surviving this cold spell!
