Doing nothing is very hard to do ... you never know when you're finished.- Leslie Nielsen

I Started SP the end of Jan. 2009. Briefly, I have always had some issues with my weight. I had had some success with diets, most notably WW where I was able to get down to 138 very briefly and settled into 143 comfortably. My lifetime WW weight goal was 153 which was easily bypassed at that time.

Sadly, I made the huge dieters mistake of thinking of it as something with a beginning and an end and once I was no longer tracking all my food and exercise I fell back into old ...

Sadly, I made the huge dieters mistake of thinking of it as something with a beginning and an end and once I was no longer tracking all my food and exercise I fell back into old habits.

So in the years after WW I struggled just to keep from zooming totally out of control.

When I found SP in Jan. I was determined that this was not a diet. A beginning yes....the first day of the rest of my life sort of thing....but no end....this is a healthy lifestyle quest and it has to be habits that last forever. So at this point, I haven't met my weight goal quite yet....I have met a lot of fitness and appearance goals and I have met myself metaphorically and I really like this new friend.

So how did you do last week. I started off okay and by Friday fell apart. Not enough steps and too many calories-bad combination. Starting over today. emoticon

Yesterday was a great day, under the adjusted caloric allotment! Woohoo! Shows on the scale too. I'm doing great but Erik and I are going out to dinner and the sweet friend who drove me to the hospital the day Erik had his accident may join us. Shaune and I with another were supposed to have a merry widows' party that day in 2010. Things just went a little haywire.
We are having Italian prepared by a real Italian...not a chain, so I'm going to have to read and choose wisely.
The most important thing is that you were in the range!!!!
Have fun with your cousin. I'm keeping the pound I lost OFF! Because I still have 9 more to lose by mid September. emoticon emoticon
