In 2007 I lost 23lb using SP. Now after 5 years of hip injury and multiple surgeries which restricted my activity level I gained some weight and gotten out of the habit of exercise. It used to be so easy to lose. Now that I have hit the Big 5-0 it's a bit more difficult. Not to mention everything is moving South and not just for Winter. My profile picture is me at 150 pounds. My goal is to get back to that weight. I am currently 165 pounds. I know I wont look like this after losing the weight since I am almost 10 years older but I would like my clothes to fit better and to be healthier.
