15th January 2018
2017 was a yoyo year, not least because of my broken ankle in late August. Up until then, the weightloss was steady, 15 pounds down. At first, this stayed off, maybe because of the extra weight with the surgical boot, but when the boot came off and the pain remained, the weight came back on... then my wellbeing suffered and I stayed away. The end of the year was not too bad, in that no more weight came on, but I needed the first two weeks of the new year to psych myself up for the SP comeback. Ankle still not right, but regardless, I can do this! So here I am....

23rd March 2017. Started the year well, but lots has been happening and so ed to refocus in order to make those pounds melt away faster. Exercise is doing great things to my physique, but need to translate that success into my weight and clothes size! The 5% Spring Challenge should help me do just that, as long as I track my food, easing off the fats and sodium....

21st October 2016. This year has been hectic in so many ways so far, but I'm back on the straight and narrow, even in France!
I started back at a gym in January in preparation for my hysterectomy in March. I took time out for 3 months but returned there after 11 weeks. My weight has yo-yoed but I am fitter and have a new fitness program that I can use in the UK gym or here at home in France! 1 pound heavier now than at January 1, no big deal. I will still have lost a sensible amount of weight by December 31 and be much fitter too.

Been there, done it so many times I've lost count. Over the last 3 years have been yoyoing in the right vague direction. Time now to stop the yoyoing and live the slim life permanently. Life has been gradually improving in lots of ways. I need to confirm this in all areas of my life......

20th November 2007, it's all slowed down and needs re-starting!! I need to revise my goals. My goal weight of 168 pounds is attainable by 10th march 2008, my next birthday, so here goes...
After that it's heading for 160 pounds!!

2008 has started and so has my re-birth in SP terms. Want to lose another 20-30 pounds in 2008, having managed to lose and keep of 20 pounds in 2007. I want to lose at least the first 10 by my birthday, which is 10th March, so that is attainable. Tracking, exercising, lots of water and posting on the threads is the way ahead.....

2008 started so-o-o well!! Then it went right downhill, and back to square 1. Want to lose those 20-30 pounds, but somehow the motivation is lacking somewhat. I know the weather's no excuse, but it's easier to just sit here chatting and posting rather than get off my backside and exercise properly.....

28th March, well those 3 months went by, and the weight went down and up again, so 2 days ago decided to take the bull by the horns and have another fresh start. Beauty makeover and photo session booked for 17 weeks time, so something to aim for!!

11th August 2012. It's been a bit up and down again! I still haven't given up though because I know that it can be done and I CAN do it!!

2nd January 2016
Ok, so 2015 wasn't a complete washout. 8 pounds down since May is the right direction, albeit slow. 2016 WILL be better!

    Hi Renia, yes, it is so frustrating. I keep trying to look ahead, past all this, and trying to stay focused and positive. I really hope your ankle will heal soon too. I'm really glad you're back on here too. Hey, we've been having crazy weather in the NE states... temps around 60 one day, and in the 20s the next! Two weeks ago we have temperatures in the single digits and below 0. I can't wait for the real full Spring at this point! emoticon emoticon Wishing you a lovely week... emoticon emoticon

    Hi Renia, It's so good to hear from you! I'm sorry about the issues with your ankle... that is frustrating. I just finished about 6 months of physical therapy for my shoulder and foot. Now dealing with some new health issues but at least I'm eating healthy and exercising again. Really looking forward to getting past all this mess. Did you get to enjoy the holidays? I pray you will be healing and feeling much better soon! Please stay in touch. It's good you are back on Spark. Even when you can't exercise, it's still good inspiration AND the friends on here have been like a life saver. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
