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!

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 : )

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?
