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 5 kg or 10lbs 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 10 pounds because I can't accept this weight, even though I'm going to turn 61 in a few weeks. Sounds easy? It's not.

Hey Claudia,
I totally agree with you. I am already just not as hungry. I juiced this morning, had left over Spinach and roast for lunch and made my world famous Mac and cheese for dinner except I substituted cauliflower for the pasta. It was really good.
Thanks for checking in. Have a great Thursday.
Franny

Sugar holiday season has a nice ring to it. For me it is not my husband who persuaded me to buy the candy. It is so hard to keep all of that away, with all the Christmas events. Sometimes it seems the holidays revolve around food more then people. Hang in there Claudia, we'll get through this.
