Maintaining 80 Pound Loss

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 so much for commenting on my blog. 1.2 miles one way makes for a good bit of exercise round trip.

Marsha, thanks for the cheerleading but there is SO MUCH I'm not great at: let me count the ways!!

(And: not because I'm preoccupied with "more important stuff" either . . . ).

Oh well oh well.
