*********************
In 2009 my doctor told me I would have to take cholesterol meds to lower my cholesterol and then when the Long Term Health Care application was rejected because I was 20 lbs over their limit, I knew it was time again to try to get to a healthier weight. Besides, I hated how I looked in a pic!
Really to stay motivated isn't very easy for me, I need a support system, and constant reminders. The weight creeps back in to my life when I don't keep my goals in check.
The SP Fitness Tracker is awesome, I love mapping the different routs we take. After logging my food I use the daily analysis, it is great to see that my eating and exercise was in sync or not!

Awww Hon, it's neat to watch the changes.

-This time I'm slowly, ever so very slowly losing, but it's also good. A few year's ago I lost quickly, so many told me "u r too thin",,, I was barely out of the obese category. I got paranoid cos two of them decided they could take me apart bit by bit, piece by piece. Bit hurt me badly. I was. Also headed for Colorado to live there permanently. So I grossly gave up, eating only junk food, went back up 40lbs. Thankfully. One of them moved the other one, we barely talk. I can't handle the negative remarks, when my Dr and I had set up the program.

Losing slowly, it should stay off.

Thank you for welcoming me back! Congrats on maintaining your weight loss! I think that is harder than losing the weight! Keep up the great work!
