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!

Current Status:
COLUMBINE2 I eat meals at very regular times, so this was easy. I haven't "scheduled" snacks before, but find a healthy snack when I'm tempted to eat unhealthy. I've turned over a new leaf!

Thank you thank you thank you! I appreciate your encouragement. I know I can do this...but I forget sometimes. LOL Always nice to have someone remind me of that.

You should be proud of those "bruises;" they mean you don't stay down for long! Woohoo!

Well, yes, you're right--we're still lucky women, but my lucky friend needs to ask her primary physician for a new referral. This doctor's office sounds so inefficient, I wouldn't trust them with my valuable time. Hope the gentle exercise will allow your foot to do its healing. Hang in there. After traveling all day yesterday, I'm just Woo-sahhh ing today.:)

Hello, my friend. I know I've been MIA -- was in New Orleans for a week with my special friend, and then 10 days with my kids and grand kids in DC. Going home in a few hours--just thought I'd check on you. Did you learn anything new from your new foot doctor?
