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 for commenting on my blog. Did you get a lot of snow? SW Colorado has been so dry that the lake has just about gone... we won't visit this summer, we'll brave the summer in Mexico.
Have a great day!

How cool that you walked down the aisle to "Music Box Dancer"! I'll bet that was beautiful. My dad just loved that song ever since it came out on the radio in the 70s and he loved it when we played it on the piano. I wish he could have heard Juliana play it, too.

Thanks for commenting on my photo. I can honestly say that YES! I see the change in myself. I'm shrinking! I'm smaller than I've ever been. It's a great feeling.
