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 so much for the "Circle of support" Goodie. I saw it just as I was about to send you an email saying I would give you a full report of how the surgery went as soon as I felt up to it. You're the bestest!

Thanks for the goodie and the very sweet message. I am a road trip QUEEN so I probably will cross paths with you one day. I actually WANT to see a bear but from a safe vantage point, like across the Grand Canyon! How is your foot? Did you get good news?

I hope you get good news at your MRI/foot exam. Thank you for checking in with me. Your note was exactly what I needed to prompt me back to SP after being sidetracked by houseguests combined with the end of school. I am SO grateful to be able to be at home with Payton. This morning he helped me work in the yard and take care of the dogs and clean the house so we could go swimming at the lake. At one point I thought "this is the perfect summer morning - working outside in the sunshine, with no pressure from the clock". I am at a standstill as far as eating and weight but am back to working out more. How are you doing, overall? I am sorry your foot has been such an issue. Amazing how long it takes some injuries to heal. Take care!

Holy wildlife...a BEAR?!? Yowza! Yes, count LOTS of fitness minutes, for sure. Thank you, as always, for your thoughtful response to my blog. I always feel good after reading what you have to say, which I really appreciate. I hope you are well and that you are injury-free, or well on your way. Injury and illness - the twin challenges. I have gotten better at dealing with both - I whine less and strategize more : )
