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 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.

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.

    Your wisdom and quote are beautiful and true. Both/and are certainly part of the (often unrecognized) beauty as humans in our all too transient incarnations. Have a lovely day! 💜

    I told Janet you invited me to go with you to her place for Lemon meringue pie,it sounds like fun but I live a we bit off,
    Switching things up it’s not a bad thing as long as you don’t forget the important things. I’m always forgetting to do my blood pressure and take my vitamins and supplements, I have been known to forget to eat breakfast or lunch or both on some days. Just because I got waylaid started my day off kilter and can’t seem to find my stride . I like to blame that on Erik but he really isn’t always the cause. I am a scatterbrain! More ADD than OCD , my order and lists help me focus and get things done. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I KNOW my mobility status allows for reading. Anything else, I'm not so sure. I definitely believe in setting myself up for success. LOL
