"Never give up... Because to give up, is like giving in, and to give in, is like quitting and Winners never quit"!

My name is Paulette, I'm 58 years old and I have had a weight problem for about 25 years. I would gain some, then lose a little. Gain more then lose even less. Over several years I have been getting heavier and heavier. I've tried many different diets, but gave up after a short period of time. I think I wanted the miracle diet that would do all the work while I was sleeping! Then I could just wake up skinny! I have since learned those diets never work. If you truly want to lose some weight, you must GOYB!! Get Off Your Booty! This site has helped me to start exercising and eating healthy! I never would have lost any of my weight if it weren't for all of you here on SP! You all keep me motivated and focused!

    Wanted to stop by with a very belated THANK YOU for my Birthday cupcake in May!! That was so nice of you and even though I didn't thank anyone right away I was (and am) very appreciative. Don't know when your Birthday is but wishing you a very blessed Birthday Year. emoticon

    Thanks for stopping by my page! I haven't been very active in stopping by friends pages for a number of months- I am getting back into the groove. Oh I did tweak my plan *again* after you stopped by- to a little higher calorie count w/ exercise- and instead of a certain number of carbs- just to lower carb- and when I have them. I am trying to figure out what I can LIVE with and it is taking a lot of trial and error- but am honing in on the home stretch of testing. Hope you have a great week and keep up the good work- you are doing great.
