Making a change!

February 2013 will be 4 years since I joined Spark People. I love all the resources available here & have made some great friends. The past couple of years since moving from Missouri to Washington have been full of ups and downs. I have dealt with the stress & depression by eating. Unfortunately I have gained a lot of the weight I had lost back so am starting over again. Here's to 2013 being a better year!

Hi Martha emoticon Just dropping by to say hi! I love your new profile picture, it really shows your weight loss!
How is your walking4 fun going? I am getting closer to the halfway mark, but it has been slow going the last few weeks as my motivation to do anything on my own ground to a stop. There are days usually when DH is home that I walk alot and then there are days on my own when not much happens.
But one thing it has taught me is that even if there is only a half mile, I am still moving forward, albeit slowly but surely. Instead of the constant 'lose a few pounds, regain them, lose them' cycle I find myself on with my eating pattern. Am working on applying the same principle to my food plan, even if baby steps, move forward not backwards and the tortoise finally wins!
Hope you summer is going well! emoticon Sissie emoticon

HI, Martha! I love to see that you "like" my farm work! ...one farm girl to another. :) I'm still not able to walk a lot at once because of the injury, so I'm even farther behind you than I was...but I'm still on the trail! Hope you aren't too disappointed with me as a partner - I'm certainly not challenging you, that's for sure. Hope you're getting weather that's a little cooler in your neck of the woods. It's been a downright pleasant July for us. Guess things even out in the long run.

Hugs,
Gail
