HI!!! I'm Cindy. I'm so bad about having patience with myself. In turn I end up getting frustrated and disappointed and ultimately giving up. This time I am going to remember at all times (especially the really bad ones) that that doesn't work and do something different. I'm going to persevere-no matter how many bad days in a row I have, no matter what throws me off track for the time being-I will get back on and move in the right direction again. It's time to just do it!!

Starting again!! :-)



I started losing weight again in February of 2009 and started back on SP in March. I joined some teams and got involved in some challenges and have lost 58 more for a total of 70 pounds so far. I love the way I feel and I like the way I look (well, in comparison to how I used to look!) ~ I still have a very long way to go. I started this journey hundreds of times since I was a young teenager and have never been what I would consider successful. Being here on SP and making new friends has made this journey not only do-able, but enjoyable!!
I have (had?) PCOS/insulin resistance/pre-diabetes, HAD borderline high blood pressure~although that is starting to get under control, borderline cholesterol readings~also starting to get under control and really I'm probably glad I don't know the myriad of other things plaguing my body.
I have changed the name of my page ( on 10-18-2009) from DOIN' IT THIS TIME!! to GOING ALL THE WAY!!! because I no longer want the reminder of the past failures standing in the way of my future success!!
One of my new favorite quotes ~
"To guarantee success, act as if it were impossible to fail."
- Dorothea Brande
"The difference between try and triumph is a little umph!"
289 - Highest (known) weight!

Member Since: 5/16/2006

Fitness Minutes: 21,933

My Goals:
Lose a substantial amount of weight and live a much longer, healthier, more fulfilling life than I will if I remain in the condition I am in right now!!!

Wear clothes I have never been able to wear, and have my husband be proud that I am his wife (and my kids be proud that I am their mother as well).


My Program:
**Revised 9-30-09** OK, enough beginning! I am eating within my calorie range and working out at least 5 times a week (at least that's the plan).

Original Post - 2006 -
Just beginning again!!! I am trying to learn many things. One of them being the patience that I need to lose a LOT of weight. That has been really hard for me and made it really easy for me to give up each time. So small changes for now. Drinking enough water, cutting out the soda, tracking what I eat and drink, and reading success stories of others - trying to stay motivated.



Personal Information:
I am 5' 6.5" tall
I have 2 inside dogs, lots of cats - both inside and out, 4 goats, 1 horse, 3 bunnies and a few chickens.
I homeschool my 3 kids and we love it - most times :-)


Other Information:
I love to cook/bake, sing, garden, can, knit, read, ride horses, work outside on our farm and care for our animals...and the obvious-eat-although now I don't eat sugared-to-death foods and a minimal amount of processed foods and I snack on freggies and oh, what a difference it makes!!!

    Good Evening emoticon

    Dropping by to wish you a fantastic week ahead and a Happy Spring! Hope you enjoy the following Springtime Poem.... emoticon

    Spring of Life

    When winter days give in to spring
    and trees begin to bud
    I can see all God handiwork
    from the grass to the stars above
    The joy and warmth the daylight brings
    as the birds sing songs of praise
    for they are also happy
    for the earth that God hath made
    and when the coolness of the evening comes
    and the dusk gives way to night
    we close our eyes and say dear Lord
    thank you for the beauty of life.
