Maintaining 80 Pound Loss with SP & Relentless Determination!

I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high and I've lost over 50 pounds since Dec. 2008. In 2009 I achieved a healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I always wanted!

I've gained this weight back many times. But now with SP I've learned the relentless determination it takes for long term success! -Marsha

Our greatest glory is not in never failing,
but in rising up every time we fail.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

We know we aren't perfect but we also know if we keep trying, we will eventually succeed if we believe in ourselves.

Have an awesome Wednesday my friend.
Pat

Awww, thanks for the goodie and congratulations. I didn't even get to watch the game as we don't have cable -- or fast internet. Kinda primitive here! Tell you hubby sorry,

Thanks for your swift comment on my depression referral blog. And for pointing to the current limits of professional help.

But: I'd say in many instances it's a bit like calling a plumber for your plugged kitchen sink. Any given plumber might be unsuccessful in unplugging the sink but . . . we'd call another plumber. And another. Until we found a guy who could help: even if it meant ripping out the kitchen!!

We wouldn't stay living in the house with the plugged sink.

(And: sure hoping you find some help that works with your psoriasis . . . but I know you will keep on looking.)

Thank you Marsha, Not so sure about the halo; but I do care. My nephew had psoriasis and I know how difficult it can be to live with. His diet was atrocious; and he wasn't willing to change. Sad. I have no doubt you will figure this out. Thank you so much for the "wings". Smiles, Joy
