Keep Moving Forward!

This was getting too long with all the updates...so time to update the updates and shorten it up!

I've struggled with my weight my entire life. I've lost and gained 50 lbs several times in my life. I joined SP about 5 years ago and lost about 30lbs. Since then I fell off the SP wagon, got a job teaching first grade, earned my master's degree and gained it all back, and then some...and some more...and some more.

I've struggled with my weight my entire life. I've lost and gained 50 lbs several times in my life. I joined SP about 5 years ago and lost about 30lbs. Since then I fell off the SP wagon, got a job teaching first grade, earned my master's degree and gained it all back, and then some...and some more...and some more.

I scared myself at my all time heaviest weight in July 2011 and started on the get-healthy journey once again. In June 2012 I came back to SP and am so grateful for all of the FREE tools, education, and support that I find here! I'm happier and healthier than I've been in years and am coming to understand and accept that it really IS about the journey, not the destination. I can't fail on this journey if I don't quit. And believe me, I'll never quit!

I look forward to both giving and receiving the 'spark'! It's so much easier when you're traveling this road with folks who 'get it'!

Thanks for the blog comment. It would be awesome to have a bigger loss next week due to the flat lining this week. But I'll probably have another small loss (dear God, let me have another loss next week!).

Take care and stay warm!
