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.

Yes, it would be fun to do some of these together. Want to help me train Tony? Seriously, though, kayaking was one of the items I did not put on because there really isn't a place to do it here. Maybe I need to take Raelene up on that idea of visiting Minong (of course I'd have to find a time she's home). Food for thought.

BTW -- I agree that getting older is busy. I needed a daily calendar and watch when I worked but didn't expect to need either in my retirement.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking out my glasses. I discovered yesterday that the over-the-glasses sunglasses I've been using don't fit the new glasses. I'll have to size up. Isn't that just the way things go? LOL

Thanks for stopping by my blog!! I agree with the "poor Charlie" sentiment. It always seems to be something with him. I feel bad when I call him and he approaches with his head hanging low. It's like he just expects bad stuff.
