Getting Back On Track!

I have been off track for over a year and I am happy to say, I am back.

Towards the end of 2011, I had to stop running and before I knew it, the weight started piling on. I was really embarrassed and didn't want to post a weight gain every month, so I just dropped out. Well, we were moving and I had left my whole lifestyle behind, my life was really disrupted for a while, so I ate. All this is really just an excuse, but it took me a long time to break out of the rut I was in.

Well, we were moving and I had left my whole lifestyle behind, my life was really disrupted for a while, so I ate. All this is really just an excuse, but it took me a long time to break out of the rut I was in.

Now that things are "normal" again, I really wanted to get back in shape. When I left SP, I weighed more than my tracker was showing because I just stopped moving it. Although the tracker is 1.8 pounds higher now than I was showing before I left, I am actually almost ten pounds down and feeling good about myself. This is a big THANKS to my SP friends that had faith in me and encouraged me to come back. Well, I am back and right on track!


I saw this on THECRUSADER's page and copied it for my page too!

Personal Information:
I used to be an AOL "Junkie". I met my sweetie on line and we have been together going on 17 years. So, our favorite movie is "You've Got Mail"

I wrote a book about raising butterflies entitled "If You Plant It, They Will Come" - Amazon just published it for me at Amazon.com and I have been fortunate enough to have some book signings in my community.







Other Information:
HELLO, DO YOU KNOW ME?

Hello, do you know me?
If you don't, you should.
I'm a pound of fat. And I'm the HAPPIEST pound of fat that you would ever want to meet. Want to know why?
It's because no one ever wants to lose me; I'm ONLY ONE POUND, just a pound! Everyone wants to lose 3 pounds, 5 pounds, or 15 pounds, but never only 1. So I just stick around and happily keep you fat.
Then I add to myself, every so slyly, so that you never seem to notice it. That is, until I've grown to 10, 20, 30 or even more pounds in weight. Yes, it is FUN being ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT, Left to do as I please. So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying,
"Oh, I only lost one pound." (As if that were such a terrible thing.) For you see, if you do this, you encourage others to keep me around because they will think I'm just not worth the effort.
