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.

emoticon for the comment on my feed. I've done thins B4 at higher weights. It's hard to deal with at 1st but then I think back & sometimes it result in getting back to where I was & then a little lower and the weight I was B4 the gain becomes my new high weight. So, if it works this time my new high weight would be 122!!! emoticon That would be nice! But right now I'm just working on getting my rhythm back and dropping at least a couple pounds this week. I'm going with this as emoticon

Hope you have a good week too. emoticon

That the thing about the South. I weigh more in the summer because of the heat & humidity. I tend to swell. Now that it's only going to be around 70* for a high as opposed to 70* for the low I weigh less but have to cover up with 3-6 pounds of clothes NO JOKE! Just can't win. No, seriously I'm a super happy camper right now. I REALLY weigh 124 point something, less than point 5, right now. My weigh-in for the day was 124.2! So, that's only 4.2 to go to my goal. BUT on the other side I have really been denying myself TONS of things in the food dept. Still getting enough calories but most of them are from good food not black licorice and tootsie rolls. I had then on my track everyday this week and have had to remove them until today. It was about 3AM & I JUST HAD TO HAVE my black licorice! emoticon

Just saw your comment on my latest photo! AH! It worked! emoticon

Hi,

Just thought I'd comment here on your latest update statement about tightening your belt! Funny you should say that! I HATE "real" pants. Most of my stuff is stretch waist. I have one pair of shorts that the elastic is pretty tight in but still comfortable. But, I find when I wear them I eat less. I HATE TIGHT CLOTHES! I get REALLY cranky, even mean and horrible to be around!

If you're talking money, I get that too! Just paid car insurance! UGH! Thank goodness I have a good record! LOL;))

Did you ever try that super easy bread recipe I gave you a while back. If not & you want to I can give it to again. I THINK I might have left something out. I don't think it was anything major though. It WAS A LONG time ago too! The cals. aren't too bad. The nutritional value isn't great but I find somethings that are nutritionally valuable are also EXTREMELY HIGH in calorie. I like LOTS to eat. I measured out M7M's the last time I bought them and about fell on the floor laughing! THEY REALLY EXPECT someone to eat like 16 M&M'S and be happy! HA! I ate the whole thing in 2 days! It was the big bag! I managed to lose weight too! SO emoticon on that theory and practice! emoticon emoticon

Hi,
Thanks for commenting on my feed about the 4 pounds! It felt really awesome too! I'm afraid yesterday I paid for Sunday's feeding frenzy!!! ROFLMAO!!! It was tasty though and I have no regrets! That's the best! Besides 123 is ok. I didn't get a chance to weigh-in yet for Tuesday And probably wont till very late but will post SOMETHING just so there's some kind of record. Ya know?
