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 ...

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!

We got a bit more sun today and it was warmer, but temps are going to soar towards the end of the week. A balmy 25 C is predicted for Saturday. The overnight temps are decent too. I just might be foolish enough to try to go swimming. I would love to do that this time of year! I'm such an adventurer. LOL!!

The running thing...I started with Couch to 5K and just kept going from there. I love getting out in nature and having the alone time!

I wrote in blog about Part 2 of our hiking adventure Saturday ... with the car playing the "bad guy" role. Hubby is still trying to figure it out. Yesterday while I was at work, we heard a car alarm going off in the parking lot ... not totally unusual. Then a lady with a view of the lot came & said it was MY car honking and flashing lights. My alarm is not motion sensitive; only reacts if I push the button on the key fob (which was sitting in my desk drawer. Before I found my keys, the alarm quieted and the flashing stopped. So, the car mystery continues :-)

Ha-ha-ha! My secret is probably genes! I do have young looking skin! I've been mistaken for 50's and I'll be 70 on the 1st of Oct. I don't use soap. I don't use a lot of things. I use Clinique skin care when I use it, and I actually use Cover Girl's cream makeup. I always keep makeup on my face everyday! I do have a problem with self criticism. I try not to do that because I know it is so detrimental... but I am and always have been so critical of myself and my body. I guess growing up in the S. Calif. Hollywood area didn't help much. I look back and see that I was (and am) really pretty good.. even beautiful. I need to promote that in myself. One day... hopefully before I'm 100 I will be able to accept myself for who I am. :)
