Hi, New year, updated plan! I will be changing my goals to reflect the wt loss already done and the new goals. I still want to lose another 40 lbs. The 76 # lost over the 2 years is gone for good, and I do plan to lose the last 40 this year! Start WT 11/07 was 265#, present WT 1/10 189 Lbs (76 lost)~goal WT 149. Once I reach that I may go for another 20#. after my husband was diagnosed with Lymphoma, David lost his battle with cancer July 24, 2008, I decided I needed to get healthier and fit to live longer for my children and grandchildren. I have 5 children and 11 grandchildren. I had been having a hard time losing weight but love SP as they have been a major help both with weight loss and motivation. I decided its time to lose some more weight and thought this will be a good place to do that! Having a place to go everyday will keep me motivated and on target. I started losing weight again when I hit 265, lost 15 lbs over 6 months then found SP, now I am below 200# for the first time in nearly 10 years. SP is the best for learning healthy ways and motivation.
Keep Losing weight, into my size 12 jeans.

Hey how are you doing? I am done with the landscape except for putting down some mulch on the beds. So it can rain now.
I am going home to the East side tomorrow for some sun, so I can keep my tan! Hope you can come for a visit soon since I moved to your neck of the woods. Maybe we can work something out when I get home. Chat soon. Sandy

Thanks for taking the time to see how the flowers have grown in my flower garden. I have been at the beach house since I planted the garden. I guess the old saying is true leave things alone and they will grow, I have done nothing but make sure the sprinklers are on and the soaker hose is turned on. Mother nature has done the rest for me. Have a wonderful week. Sandy

A Great Day
"Today is a great day to be alive. The world is filled with positive possibilities, and those possibilities grow more numerous with each passing moment. Sure, there are challenges and disappointments and frustrations. And within those challenges, within those disappointments, are some of the greatest possibilities.
Today is a great day to be alive because today you can make things happen. You can set a goal, chart a course, take stock of your situation and use it to create new value. Pay no attention to those who claim to know how things will be. Your future is yours to determine, and this is the day to make it great.
You don't need anyone's permission to live with joy and fulfillment. You don't need to wait for certain circumstances to line up in a specific way. For today is a great day to be alive, to be productive, to be effective and to fulfill your best possibilities. And now is the moment to enthusiastically get busy making it all happen."-- Ralph Marston
