Getting Back On Track!

I have been off track for over a year and I am happy to say, I am back.

Towards the end of 2011, I had to stop running and before I knew it, the weight started piling on. I was really embarrassed and didn't want to post a weight gain every month, so I just dropped out. Well, we were moving and I had left my whole lifestyle behind, my life was really disrupted for a while, so I ate. All this is really just an excuse, but it took me a long time to break out of the rut I was in.

All this is really just an excuse, but it took me a long time to break out of the rut I was in.

Now that things are "normal" again, I really wanted to get back in shape. When I left SP, I weighed more than my tracker was showing because I just stopped moving it. Although the tracker is 1.8 pounds higher now than I was showing before I left, I am actually almost ten pounds down and feeling good about myself. This is a big THANKS to my SP friends that had faith in me and encouraged me to come back. Well, I am back and right on track!


I saw this on THECRUSADER's page and copied it for my page too!

I have written two book s about raising butterflies entitled "If You Plant It, They Will Come" and "Butterfly Gardens and Raising Butterflies" The second book is an updated version of the first book - Both books are available at Amazon.com and Barnes&Noble.com I have also been fortunate enough to have some book signings in my community.







Other Information:
Weight loss is a journey – tackle it in stages.
Some may get there very quick, whilst others may take ages.
Weight loss is a journey, some take the stopping train,
And they get off at the station, and then get back on again.
While other lucky people seem to travel by express,
With no apparent effort, each week they weigh in less.
For some of us the journey, too often seems uphill.
We never seem to get that far, struggle though we will.
Weight loss is a journey – anyone can go
But as you travel on your way there’s something you should know.
Losing weight’s a journey that is different for everyone,
Some are happy to stroll along while others need to run.
If you want to complete this journey, then forget about the rest.
Each of you must travel the way that suits you best.
As long as you believe it, you WILL get there some day.

Hi Cynthia, I have been back for 10 weeks now after gaining all the weight and more back. Stupid of me. Anyway, have cut grains out of my diet and have lost 21 pounds in 10 weeks (with a LOT of exercise.) I pledge I will get off of this roller coaster now and never gain the weight back. I still have a long ways to go, but I will get there.

Cynthia, stop by the Game Room again, you and Suezette answered at the same time. If no one else has posted after you edit your line to go with Suezette's sentence.

Thanks for stopping by my page, and your comment on my photo! That was a fun event, and my husband and son supported me by moving at my pace ... thus the juggling by my son, who could have moved much faster!

What a neat hobby(?) / avocation(?) you have with your butterflies!

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Person Award!!

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 people who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out.

Again, Congratulations Beautiful!
