I'll just go into Columbine's kitchen while she's waiting in the car for me to leave!

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!

    Hey, Nancy -- Just want you to know, I've been a bit lazy with my SP logins recently. I'm visiting my grand kids in DC area (VA actually). I know what you mean about practicing with the balance to counteract falls. My grand kids have me bike-riding with them now. Boy has that helped to get the balance back on track. I'm loving it. (It's been 2-grown kids ago since I was last on a bike.)

    Yesterday, we spent 4 1/2 hours at the water park, with them doing most of the activity -- but I sure was bushed at the end of the day... and continuing today. :)

    You stay with your hiking. That's terrific for every health issue, I would imagine. I was wondering how well the SP tracker worked. I don't rely much on my Fitbit -- it seems to record about 1/2 of what I do, but I still wear it all the time. Go figger.

    I liked your comment about "finding" my 2 lbs. I actually gained 2 pounds the previous week, but then lost 4 pounds this past week (for a net loss of 2 pounds). I hate going up and down!!
