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!

    Thanks for your comments on my activity feed. Yes, I cleared a lot of brush during the past 3 days. I'm pretty sore, but it was a lot of good aerobic activity!

    Thanks for the goodie! My goals are simple yet not so easy to attain when the road conditions are bad. Yet I persevere! I do love teaching and it's a well known rumour amongst the belly dance students that I am one of the best teachers in town. My students told me so!! I was very flattered and blushed madly, but yet I feel I earned it and am proud of it.
    I gave you a snowman to remember me by...and now an antidote to restaurant food!
    March will be warmer, no doubt, but we won't see green until April or later. I have 9 feet of snow in front of the house from the stuff that was shoveled off the roof!
