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.

Thanks for the supportive comment on my blog. I wish I could say I managed a great day yesterday too. I have been doing well by planning my day's meals ahead but had to scrap everything yesterday to do some running for my dad and then manage my eating around doing Zumba. Just another challenge, right!!

I do understand, not fully but having been in rough spots not so long ago I know we need to channel our energy to what needs to be done. If a friend isn't understanding they will unfortunately learn when their turn comes. Having lost Steve and going through Erik's battle I am more sensitive now than say 40 years ago. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
