September 3/14

Can you believe September is here already? The leaves are already starting to change colour here in Southern Ontario. Every year the time seems to go faster.

Exercise-wise, I am continuing my virtual walk from Land's End, Cornwall, to John O'Groats, Scotland. I have now walked the entire length of England and am north of the Edinburgh, a wonderful city where I enjoyed the restaurants (or to be honest the. Pubs). My goal is to finish this walk by ...

Can you believe September is here already? The leaves are already starting to change colour here in Southern Ontario. Every year the time seems to go faster.

Exercise-wise, I am continuing my virtual walk from Land's End, Cornwall, to John O'Groats, Scotland. I have now walked the entire length of England and am north of the Edinburgh, a wonderful city where I enjoyed the restaurants (or to be honest the. Pubs). My goal is to finish this walk by December 31/14.

I calculated my weight loss goals the first of June. I have always been too optimistic about how much weight I could lose in a given time. My new goal is to lose 5 lbs. every 2 months. If I can do that, I will reach my goal of 150 lbs. by the end of February, 2015. That is my goal. As of this morning, I'm on track at 164.6 lbs. In the meantime, I'm enjoying getting back into some of my size 12 pants.

The absolutely best thing is that I'm still here, 3 1/2 years after joining Spark People, I have never stuck with any program this long, and I expect to keep Sparking for the rest of my life.

I have met some wonderful new friends on SP. We care about each other, and are supportive of the ups and downs of our lives. A very sincere thank you.

I am sorry Peter doesn't care for walks. My DH was very active as a boyscout leader when we first married and has always liked hiking. We are both committed now to getting healthier. He was prediabetic last year and by exercising has gotten healthier so that he no longer medication.

Your comments and continued support mean so much to me! Thanks for understanding where I am at in my journey! I need to learn to be thankful for what I've accomplished and proud, but not too big for my britches that I have to buy bigger britches LOL! I have done a good job of not going back into Twoterville or regaining large amounts of weight (12 pounds was the most and it goes back down)... but with that said, I need to remain diligent because that could easily result in a bigger backslide. I will try to keep my eye on the prize, while still having a little fun. emoticon

The saddest thing about it is it still reverberates today 150 years later as revisionists have frequently rewritten history to give the south a noble lost cause glamour. The repercussions are seen in the horrible murder of unarmed black men by over zealous and racist policemen.
