Well I am back. I had a 2 pound weight loss the first week. Yipee! Today I started to exercise. My knees hurt for a while, but they seem OK now. Excited to keep it up. One day at a time! I am kinda sad because I haven't made any friends yet even though I've reached out on the message boards in my teams. I guess I will just keep trying.....

Great news. I am down 5 pounds since starting SP, 8 for the month. Exercise is getting better, but some days I still struggle with the right choice. I am more active on the boards so I guess that's good. More later...

Down 10 pounds since the first of the year, and today is weigh in day, so maybe more! I have made some wonderful spark friends who are kind and supportive. Thank you to all of you. You are fantastic and inspirational. I hope I can be there to support you along your weight lose journey as you do me.

Another pound lost! 12 since the beginning of the year and 9 since starting SP. This follows my goal line on the chart, of 1 pound per week. Do I wish it was faster? Yes and no. I have lost weight faster before but it did not stay off. I could not live with the restrictions for the rest of my life. So far, while this is challenging, it feels doable.
Do I miss somethings? A little. But I think I am OK with that. I notice that the longer I am away from sugar, the less I miss it. When I eat sweets, I don't feel great and my weight stands still. I will have to think about this for awhile....

I am still on track, and losing steadily, down another 2 pounds. That is 14 for the year, 11 on SP. Woo Hoo! So slow and steady wins the race. I'll just stick with the plan, and keep eating real food and cooking all my own meals. Luckily I enjoy that, so as long as I keep avoiding sugar and processed foods, I should keep losing. Oh, and tracking everyday, and increasing my exercise steadily.

So today I am still here. Plugging away slowly but surely. Losing a little bit of weight at a time, just the way I gained it. I slipped back into eating some processed foods for a while and saw a set back. But I have recovered my focus and am back on track. My fitness is improving and I am still cooking 95% of my meals from scratch or "real food." It's a lot more work, but so much more satisfying. I just feel better when I eat food that came from food instead of boxes, cans etc. I recently got another bread maker, because I didn't want to eat processed bread anymore. I have control over the ingredients if I make it myself. I actually don't eat much bread, because it's high in carbs, but my DH does. So I thought that if I make my own, then what I do eat will be made out of wholesome organic ingredients grown close to my home. The hard part is limiting this tasty treat. I am going to experiment with some gluten free options as well, so I bought some alternative "flours" today. We will see how it goes!

"Above all else, do NOT quit! The universe always bows to persistence.
The empowering approach is to see your physical challenges as assets, because overcoming obstacles forces you to develop discipline, determination and character.
These traits will carry over to other areas of your life and make you a stronger person.”

Thank you for you comment on gentleness and working out. I believe one can find simple pleasure and enjoyment. Working out does not have to be a crazy fast paced, drive your bones into the ground pace. I listen to my body and what it wants. It wants peace.
