I am now 41 years old and have been on SP since September 2013.
My all time high weight was 205 pounds (93 kilo) at 5 ft 8 (173 cm). I have weight this much a couple of times, decided to lose 50 pounds with a diet, would succeed and gained it all back.
The last time I hit my all time high (April 2013) I was just so tired of it all, I decided to make more permanent changes.

I am now 41 years old and have been on SP since September 2013.
My all time high weight was 205 pounds (93 kilo) at 5 ft 8 (173 cm). I have weight this much a couple of times, decided to lose 50 pounds with a diet, would succeed and gained it all back.
The last time I hit my all time high (April 2013) I was just so tired of it all, I decided to make more permanent changes.

So I made some permanent changes gradually. I started keeping track of what I ate, focussed on and learned about eating healthy and started to do more sponteneous exercise and also planned exercise.

This lead again to a 50 pound (23 kilo) weight loss, feeling fit and happy with myself. I have trained for a half marathon and then a whole marathon, which made it easier to keep the weight off.

However, at some point exercise became a solution for eating too much fat, sugar and calories in general, again.
I have been yo-yo-ing again since May 2014, but now between 159 pounds (72 kilo) and 171 pounds (78 kilo).

And off course, when I got injured earlier this year and couldn't run anymore, I gained even more, ending up at 176 pounds (80 kilo), which is something I promised myself I would never weigh again.

So since 1 June I am back on SP daily, tracking my food every day, and the exercise that I can still do with an injured foot (cycling, yoga).

It feels good to be back on SP, to notice that I can lose weight if I don't eat too many calories and keep myself active.

I have started re-reading the Beck Diet Solution and have also just started to read the Skinny Rules by Bob Harper, about setting permanent eating rules to keep the weight off.

I am setting new goals again, for now just weight goals, but as soon as my foot has healed, I will start running again.

Looking forward to the Summer!

Er is wel een Nederlands Team, maar ik geloof dat daar niet veel in gebeurd. Ik ga volgende week naar Nederland voor een week en gelukkig heb jij al een hoop NLse producten gelogged in the Food tracker. Dat maakt het hopelijk voor mij een stuk makkelijker! Kan jij ook de barcode scannen met de Spark app op je telefoon?

Hoi, volgens mij spreek je Nederlands, als ik zo naar je Food Tracker kijk.

Of heb ik het mis? emoticon

Thanks for the comment on yesterday'a blog and I am WITH you...I AM going to try the green protein/fiber he gave yesterday...but I also have had to eat Kashi Go Lean! Original it at least has 13 g fiber per serving but I am having trouble doing it too because I DON'T want more calories either...we can maybe stick together on this and help each other! emoticon
