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.

Donna, your blog really spoke to me. I am more cognizant of moving. I am getting in 3500 - 4500 steps on most days. I find myself sittin too long, also ...SO, today, even though I was soooo tired this a.m.. ..I moved more and I'm going to move more each day to see if I can get a routine 7500 - 10k steps daily! Wouldn't that be marvelous for the bod! Lol We can do this! emoticon emoticon , Brenda

Thanks, Donna! We really do think a lot alike. I always thought that but after meeting you, I know we share a lot of traits. Lucky us!

I talked and laughed so much in Shipshe that it took a couple days for my throat and ribs to recover. emoticon

I'm glad you had a good time ... although I had no doubt that you would.

I think it would be so much easier if we traded decluttering jobs. There is nothing like taking the emotion out to make getting rid of something so much easier. Of course, here, you'd have to put up with Tony who is the supervisor of all tasks.
