I'm happily married, but unhappily overweight. . I'm going to start taking my own advice, and "fall down 7 times, get up 8, but I hope to watch where I am walking this time, and try to avoid the "fall down" part. Read my blog if you want a chuckle about how well I 'fall down'.
Anyway, I'm still here and still trying. I seem to get discouraged more easily lately, and make more excuses and "jokes" about my slipups than I did when I first started Sparkpeople. The positive change is that I have gotten on my recumbent bike for 60-90 minutes per day EVERY day without fail or excuse for the last 6 months, and I am down from my original weight on Sparkpeople several years ago of 331 to 281 pounds this morning.With all of the exercise, 24 pounds in the last 6 months.I know that my eating habit need to be scrutinized more carefully because 24 pounds in 6 months is not where I know I should be.
