Maintaining 80 Pound Loss with SP & Relentless Determination!

I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high and I've lost over 50 pounds since Dec. 2008. In 2009 I achieved a healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I always wanted!

I've gained this weight back many times. But now with SP I've learned the relentless determination it takes for long term success! -Marsha

Thank you for your blog love on my "I'm back at my goal" blog today. Yes, I celebrated. I received the nicest comments on my blog and goodies that made me cry. I helped DH stack firewood for 90 minutes and I did go shopping for a wee while. I also made myself the tastiest on-plan scallops for dinner. It was a great day and you started it off by cheering me on.

I'm not counting on this getting easier...if it does, then that will be a bonus. I'm counting on providing the relentless determination it takes a POW to maintain. I'm glad we're on this journey together too...you're a wonderful inspiration!!!

Thank you for your kind thoughts on our political situation, Marsha -- it's shocking. A part of Ottawa which I know very very well -- and cannot imagine the disruption of the peace, order and good government which has always prevailed in our capital city. It's so heartening to see the response: an outpouring of (typically Canadian) calm, resolve, courtesy and absolute refusal to vilify or hate. I am proud of my country and its people.

Smiling is infectious, You can catch it like the flu.
Someone smiled at me today, And I started smiling too.

Keep smiling and let's skip the flu!
Hugs

A Friend
A friend is like a shade tree
Beside a summer way.
A friend is like the sunshine
That makes a perfect day.
A friend is like a flower
That's worn close to the heart.
A friend is like a treasure
With which one will not part.

You are a special friend I hope to never lose.
Hope you had a terrific Tuesday.
Pat
