Hi guys! I joined SP back in 2007 and was pretty successful. I had quit smoking and lost 30 lbs. Too successful, actually. I got complacent with my progress and started thinking I didn't "need" this place anymore. I felt great, I looked great..I was fine!

Except, I still needed this place. It took a few years, but eventually the weight crept right back on & I picked up smoking again. Stupid.

Anyway, I ditched the smokes for good over 2 years ago, but the weight seems to have stuck. So now I'd like to tackle that.

It's not even about my size/weight--I just felt awful. I don't like feeling tired or sick or like a lumbering hulk. So, I'm going to change that.

I plan on giving myself a challenge each month, and keeping a daily goals list. I already know that counting calories leads to madness with me, so I will only track WHAT I eat, not HOW MUCH and stick to reasonable portions.

I don't have a goal date in mind: it will happen, when it happens. And since this is a lifestyle change--it doesn't matter what the "end date" is, does it?

    Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and for the comments you made. You're so sweet! I especially love your suggestion about putting foods away before I sit down to eat... you nailed it right on the head with that one. Thanks a bunch! And btw, that picture of you in your profile isn't an ugly mug, you're cute as a button! Trust me, you are! emoticon emoticon on your 10 pound weight loss!

    thanks for the comment on my blog. Yeah I thought of that but I just felt like I was going to be a tattle tale or something that I couldn't handle the truth, etc. But it is something I will think about, Thanks again for the encouragement

    thanks for the comment on my blog - I have some of my own stretch bands - I can use them instead of the Wii's - cool.

    My timeline is similar to yours - joined in 2007 and made great progress an then through the holidays that year I regressed. But now I'm back at it - not seeing real progress yet - but expecting.

    Stay in the fight!

    Thank you for your words of encouragement today. It helped me put everything into perspective.

    On a side note....Ms. Betty Page is pretty fantastic! Have a good day.
