Half-Fast Old Lady 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

The rain may be falling hard outside,
But your smile makes it all alright.
I'm so glad that you're my friend.
I know our friendship will never end.

Rain was falling here earlier today but heading into hot and dry
for the coming week.
Have a wonderful weekend.

No problem with the confusion. With 3 of my 4 siblings on SparkPeople, I expect from time to time I will be attributed things that another one of my siblings has said/done. When I figure out the proper support, I may start to enjoy running. I do jog across streets to up my pace, and from time to time will jog for a bit after stopping to look more closely at something like a flower or tree, or to snack on a few mulberries.

Wednesday morning, since we actually were able to get into the pool at work, I swam a lap of butterfly - something NONE of my siblings do. (Can you tell I'm the youngest?)
