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 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.

I know!! Patience is just not my strong suit, especially with myself. I already see more ability to move but I also see I am still quite protective of my arm.

Well, hello there, old friend! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yep, sad to say is right, but I guess misery does love company! Time to kick our respective butts and get back in shape, eh?

Thanks for stopping by my blog and sharing your wise advice. Sometimes change is not always helpful, but I guess I'll learn to live with it.
