July 2014 -- Halfway through the Summer Challenge with 2 of 7 lbs down for the Challenge. Then 10 more to be back at the ideal weight for my body frame. :-)

October 2013 -- As I start the Fall Challenge on the Starfish team, I am presently 17 lbs above my reached goal in 2010. My mini-goal for this challenge is to lose 7.3 lbs which will bring me just below 140. Yay! I will love being below that line again. :-D

August 2013, a few down and a few back up, still struggling with the extra 15

April 2013, now a 7 lb gain for a total of 15 up, oops...

June 2012, back with an 8 lb gain (after having met my goal in January 2010)

* * * * * * *

Pondering how I ever got that heavy... how to stay motivated to keep the weight off... how to experience the joys and sorrows of life without misusing food.

Hoping to make some friends along the way as we encourage one another to develop the habits of health!

Don't leave the SUDS team, puhleeze!!!!!! I almost did that just before the summer challenge because my hubs and I are going on a trip next month, but then I decided to dig in for the time that I'm still here. So don't go! If I can only be here for a few weeks, you can do the whole challenge -- do it for me! Believe me, this team LOVES all the emoticon and emoticon and they will never let you down!

P.S. I love reading too!
