I am on my way to half my size. I began my journey at 243 lbs. :( But on my way to 120 lbs. :) ...and the journey unfolds...

In my first two years on SP (7/9/10-7/9/12), I lost 67 lbs of the 123 I desired to lose. Then, a job change derailed my progress. Stress and a sedentary job...I put all the weight back on. Now, I have begun again. I re-started at 247 lbs. I'm now down 20 pounds and continuing to find my way. My husband and I began following South Beach guidelines. But I have decided I need SP. I need to record my calories and connect here on SP. It worked before. It can work again. I've adjusted to the new job...now, it's time to reclaim my weight loss.

My goals for 2016...
1. Getting back into Onederland.
2. Continue drinking my water (I limit my diet cola and am drinking a lot of water daily...though not tracking it)
3. Become a freggie eater (eating 4 or more servings of fruits/veggies per day)
4. Incorporate a new exercise routine that works with my schedule and that I can be consistent with that includes strength and cardio exercise
5. Increase my walking and standing time...moving from completely sedentary to getting 10,000 steps daily
6. Complete my workout room...setting up a special workout room in my basement

So, the plan for Year 6...continue to track everything 100%. Continue drinking water. Pursue more freggies and exercise. Reward myself for accomplishments in these and other areas. Be good to myself. Spark on...let the remaining weight drop off...it will happen...I have to stay on the SP train...it is headed to my destination.

    Thanks for the Goodie...but you didn't have to get "snippy." Ha ha ha LOL
    I thought you might think that was cute. Truth is, I looked at my hair yesterday and thought it was about time to schedule a hair appointment for myself. Hope the granddaughters like their new cuts. emoticon
