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!

Nancy,
Thank you for the goodie! Your understanding and encouragement mean a lot to me. I still haven't heard back from the doctor on my test results, but I'm feeling more energetic this past week and have been able to go to two aerobics classes and get some housework done. That's huge. I hope whatever was causing the severe fatigue has ended now and I'm back on the mend. I'm very excited about being able to do a lot more these past few days.
Hugs,
Kay

Nancy,
Thank you for the thoughtful nuts protein goodie. I feel like it's really important for me to be getting enough protein these days so your goodie is right on point. I really appreciate your kind words of encouragement and support.
Hugs,
Kay

That's so sweet -- I love being thought of by someone as wonderful as you, Nancy. And please do KEEP me in your prayers and in the prayer circle that you share with your friends. I do intend to beat this and thrive!

Denial about what? What did the PT say? (Your status comment). I got my stitches out yesterday and have been on an emotional roller coaster ever since. The pathology report of the removed mass was not good. It's been sent to Mayo Clinic for reevaluation. I'm remembering your comment about your friend. Downer, downer... and I only know how to be up... trying to find some balance here....
