I have decided that THIS IS IT! The last time that I intend to start over on this weight loss journey. I am so tired of feeling tired all the time, tired of the knee and back pain. I have been a yo-yo dieter for the past 25 years and now I realize that that has been my problem. I have been looking at this as a diet rather than a lifestyle change. So, today is the start of a new, healthier life!

Since I wrote the above statements in 2016, I have had some successes and some failures. I have lost 30 pounds since that time but I have been stuck for the past 2 years - losing a few pounds and then regaining them. In September and November 2018, I had both knee replacements done. This is the first time in about 10 years that I have little or no knee pain when I walk. This year I am committing myself to a healthier lifestyle to lose weight and preserve my new knee function.

    I've been away and very, very behind on Sparking. Even though it's late, I want to wish you a Happy emoticon emoticon Day! Some seasons are more challenging than others. We only fail when we walk away and give up.

    Happy spotlight day! Sorry it's a little late. I also love to read, but can barely find the time. I hope you keep with your consistency and determination and lose those pesky extra pounds. Good luck!

    I hope you have had a great day in the emoticon spotlight. I also like reading, especially mysteries, and have several books on my kindle. I enjoy singing in the church and enjoy many of the same TV shows such as NCIS, and Criminal Minds. Wishing you lots of success in the 5% Challenge.

    It's your special day! emoticon emoticon
    How do you like the new WW program? I have seen the advertisements and it sounds interesting. I can't afford it but happy that so many are enjoying it.
    Take care and enjoy your weekend.
