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.

Hmmm...Depends on the bootcamp.

I would love to finish a Sparkpeople one. At the moment I am not exercising though due to some health problems I'm having. I'm due to having surgery at the end of the week and I hope that it will help me get back to where I feel normal again so that I can take up some exercise.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment on my cardinal painting. I just looked through the Facebook pictures of the others who were in my class and there is not a single one that doesn't look like a cardinal. They are all very good. I blame all my troubles on the barn board. I just didn't understand the challenges it would pose as to drying compared to canvas. But, I know so little and the whole point is just to learn. I did that so I'm happy enough.
