Paul the SparkPeople programmer says:
Some days I don't have a positive attitude about working out. On those days I work out without a chipper attitude.

I feel way thinner than I look, I'm shocked when I see pictures of myself.

I'm seeking:
* HEALTH* Longevity* Wellbeing* Confidence* Sex Appeal

You must be careful how you walk and where you go, for there are those following you who will set their feet where yours are set.
- Robert E. Lee, Civil War General

    emoticon Please, give yourself grace. You did it once, you can do it again. I believe in you!

    On one stretch I lost almost 30 lbs. It took six long months to do that. Then I was put on some medication, plus ended up with diverticuloses. I put 20+ of those pounds back on in a month.

    I was heartbroken and gave up for quite awhile. You know what? I came back to SP and got the support I needed, and love, too. Slow and steady I go, like a little emoticon . I still have about 25 lbs to go.

    I'm here whenever you need a shoulder, emoticon or a emoticon . You can do this.

    Hope your vacation goes well and you come back refreshed and raring to go. -Bri

    Happy Birthday my friend.
    Sorry I missed it.
    Been busy volunteering and running errands.
    Monday I start training as a book seller at the college.
    It will be for two months. But if they like me I will stay on.
    Hope that you have a good day!
    Your friend in Fitness, Holly emoticon
