Learning to fly

I thought I would finally change the text on this page, after nearly a year and a half. A lot has changed.

I have struggled with weight issues my entire adult life, especially since leaving college and settling into life at a desk. I finally started getting concerned after turning 40 (and as I kept gaining weight) when my doctor started raising blood pressure issues. I was struggling with GERD (or something similar) as well, and finally decided it was time to do something.

Someone suggested Spark People so I signed up, I really like the way the entire experience is geared toward being positive and supportive. I need that.

Since starting SP in April of 2010 I've lost 70 pounds and gained a lot of my health back. I'm running four or five days a week and lifting weights and looking for other activities. I've changed my diet almost entirely and made other changes as well. But I still have a way to go.

Hey there,
Did you notice we have the same # of pounds to lose?! I was 127.2 at weigh-in today. My goal is 120. I can't get rid of these last few! I am trying so hard. I know my diet is to blame cuz I have very little self control! emoticon emoticon But, one good thing has happened in the past about 2 & a half years. But mostly just since Thanksgiving. I learned that I FEEL better at a lower weight but more importantly When I slack on exercise I LOOK different and my clothes fit difffernt even at the same weight. I am happy at 126-124. 128 is pushin' it now. Where it used to be 135-140. It just yanks my chain that The elusive 120 is RIGHT THERE but I can't seem to get there! I KNOW I have the 4 pounds to spare. I mean I can still grab "stuff" on my tummy at 124! emoticon . Yeah, some is extra skin but NOT 4 pounds worth!!!! HAHAHA!

So, what did you do today? I've done NOTHING YET!!! I need to get away from here and off my butt! I had a good weigh-in today and don't want to go up again right now. This week I have been having a good day every other day as far as the scale goes. Like yesterday I was up & I said to myself oh, tomorrow I'll be down again and I was. I even messed up again after I was supposed to go to sleep! THAT is a BAD HABIT, nothing more. When I do that I am NOT hungry. At least I ate and egg in there somewhere! LOL! emoticon

I have been doing everything right as far as cals. in & out go and getting plenty of exercise. The scale has moved a whole .2!!! And I'm still up .2 from where I started the week. UGH! Sorry for the rant but it helps to get it out, ya know? emoticon

How are YOU today? Are you sore from your interesting way down the stairs yesterday?
