My weight has been yo-yo-ing all my adult life! And I'm really tired of it! I want to walk into a room and not feel self-conscious about my weight. After a lifetime of selecting clothes to conceal myself, I want to wear pretty clothes, try new activities & grab more gusto!

Update: I've been with SP for almost 5 yr. Lost the weight in 6 months. Rode the roller coaster of up & down the scale. Finally I'm ignoring the scale , making good food choices & exercising at least 30 min. 6 ...
My weight has been yo-yo-ing all my adult life! And I'm really tired of it! I want to walk into a room and not feel self-conscious about my weight. After a lifetime of selecting clothes to conceal myself, I want to wear pretty clothes, try new activities & grab more gusto!

Update: I've been with SP for almost 5 yr. Lost the weight in 6 months. Rode the roller coaster of up & down the scale. Finally I'm ignoring the scale , making good food choices & exercising at least 30 min. 6 days/week. Period.

Most important lesson learned: The bad habits that made me fat the first time (and the 128th time!) will make me fat again. This must be a permanent change in my life.


2013: After DH got a new knee & I returned to all my bad habits, I sat around & regained nearly all the weight I had lost.

Started over 3 weeks ago and am now on Day 20 of a streak of at least 30 min. of exercise 6 days/week. Feel better! Clothes fit better!

It's working...it always does. SP is the greatest! Just do it...and it feels soo great!

In response to your comment on my activity feed, we are definitely still in the heat. I was trimming hedges and cutting down some unwanted "volunteer" trees that have sprung up. In the evening I led an Adventure Club hike. It was 100 degrees when we started at 6:30 and 99 degrees when we finished at 7:45!!

Thanks SO much dear friend for your support on my 'save our home' blog! it's been a long twisted fight fraught with frustrations and set backs...but still...the glimmer of hope goes on! I LOVE Senator Warren and I devoured her book and wrote to her through her publisher to thank her for her fight. I wish she would run for President...but we know...she's probably too smart for that! She knows she can get more done in her role as a Senator. I also love Bernie Marks. It's heartening to know there a few...very few...politicians who know why they are serving in Washington. God bless them..and God bless us all! emoticon emoticon

Hey girl! Thanks for the comment... I forget sometimes that a couple of my workout apps are still connected to Spark... I need to come back more often... I'm going to be looking for your blog about your hike! I just hiked a mountain in preparation for a trip to the Tetons and my calves are KILLING me....
