Doing nothing is very hard to do ... you never know when you're finished.- Leslie Nielsen

I Started SP the end of Jan. 2009. Briefly, I have always had some issues with my weight. I had had some success with diets, most notably WW where I was able to get down to 138 very briefly and settled into 143 comfortably. My lifetime WW weight goal was 153 which was easily bypassed at that time.

Sadly, I made the huge dieters mistake of thinking of it as something with a beginning and an end and once I was no longer tracking all my food and exercise I fell back into old ...

Sadly, I made the huge dieters mistake of thinking of it as something with a beginning and an end and once I was no longer tracking all my food and exercise I fell back into old habits.

So in the years after WW I struggled just to keep from zooming totally out of control.

When I found SP in Jan. I was determined that this was not a diet. A beginning yes....the first day of the rest of my life sort of thing....but no end....this is a healthy lifestyle quest and it has to be habits that last forever. So at this point, I haven't met my weight goal quite yet....I have met a lot of fitness and appearance goals and I have met myself metaphorically and I really like this new friend.

Apparently sometimes you gain weight if those sometimes foods show up too often. Wish the weight would sometimes just stay away!!

Yea for Plan Q! Special days like today deserve a higher letter in the alphabet! I'm glad you indulged, and that it was worth the extra calories. Life would be pretty bland if you never allowed yourself some slack! Now....back on the wagon! (Not a kick, just a nudge.)

Love your doctor story! I need to check on line to see who is in Family Practice at the Clinic these days. I want to stay in that department and really would prefer a woman. We'll see -- I have no problem firing one I don't like. Good perspective to look at it as having a new set of eyes to help.

Thanks for the encouragement on those numbers. I just need to find my way to being consistent!

I was just talking to someone yesterday about how we picked our cat because he was so independent and now his independence is maddening sometimes. We agreed that spouses are just the same. I guess it just depends on our moods. I suppose it's the same for the other half too, huh?
