I'll just go into Columbine's kitchen while she's waiting in the car for me to leave!

My weight has been yo-yo-ing all my adult life! And I'm really tired of it! I want to walk into a room and not feel self-conscious about my weight. After a lifetime of selecting clothes to conceal myself, I want to wear pretty clothes, try new activities & grab more gusto!

Update: I've been with SP for almost 5 yr. Lost the weight in 6 months. Rode the roller coaster of up & down the scale. Finally I'm ignoring the scale , making good food choices & exercising at least 30 min. 6 days/week. Period.

Most important lesson learned: The bad habits that made me fat the first time (and the 128th time!) will make me fat again. This must be a permanent change in my life.


2013: After DH got a new knee & I returned to all my bad habits, I sat around & regained nearly all the weight I had lost.

Started over 3 weeks ago and am now on Day 20 of a streak of at least 30 min. of exercise 6 days/week. Feel better! Clothes fit better!

It's working...it always does. SP is the greatest! Just do it...and it feels soo great!

    Oh, You're a hoot! That class sounds like so much fun! I know you can't wait to go back. You know it will get easier, and less painful as time goes on. Proud of YOU! emoticon

    Nancy, thank you for the goodie and the good advice! You are so right..
    I gave up Pilates and cut back on pickleball, playing less and very carefully but last night we got into an intense game and I forgot to hold back:( Soo.. no more pickleball for a while and I'll skip the tournament :(( I want to fit for our vacation this summer which will involve a lot of waking.
    Thank you for your good wishes!
    Have a wonderful weekend!
