Still Here After All These Years

After failing at it for 10 years, I lost 29 lb with SP in a couple of months & without suffering. I can't believe I found this program. Overeaters Anonymous helped me stop binges permanently, but lately I was eating like a thin person and doing little exercise. Natural propensity to put on, middle age and menopause didn't help. In the difficult path of maintaining and trying to get fitter, while dealing with chronic back and neck problems and disliking exercise. I'm a sparkie for life & will ...
After failing at it for 10 years, I lost 29 lb with SP in a couple of months & without suffering. I can't believe I found this program. Overeaters Anonymous helped me stop binges permanently, but lately I was eating like a thin person and doing little exercise. Natural propensity to put on, middle age and menopause didn't help. In the difficult path of maintaining and trying to get fitter, while dealing with chronic back and neck problems and disliking exercise. I'm a sparkie for life & will stick to my maintenance range no matter what.

The above was written in 2008 so this year is my 6th sparkversary. I have put on 7kg or 14lbs in the last couple of years, but it hasn't been all bad, I quit sugar in the process and was much happier and healthy for a while. Went back to sugar in 2012 and also smoked on and off a couple of years, quitting again mid 2013. I abandoned SP for a few months due to frustration with myself and I'm back trying to lose at least 10 pounds because I can't accept this weight, even though I'm 61 yo and I dieted all my life. I don't want to get heavier and heavier. Sounds easy? It's not.

Keeping off sugar as a lifetime goal.

Thank you for the abundance and generosity of your spirit. Your wisdom and kindness seems to have found their way into many other people's lives as well.

The good side of those gifts that keep on giving. We are lucky to have so many good and wonderful friends to help pass them on.
