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 encouragement on my blog. Do you think an old dog like me can still learn?? I seem to struggle every month and do away with my successes. I know that isn't totally true but my self sabotage each month means I am even slower than a turtle!! I'm so much better after a very successful day yesterday. The sleep didn't happen (special thanks to Tony).

I hope you got a run done!!

Thanks for your kind words on my blog. I'm glad I've learned those lessons in these last 61 years. Who knows what I might learn in the next 61!!

A toast to the future -- I know you've got something prepared today.

Clothes shopping is SO frustrating isn't it??? I had told myself that when I got to 75% of my weight loss goal I would spend some of my tax return money (that I stashed aside) on new clothes. So I got there a few weeks ago but didn't get to do much buying (and then I gained a few lbs back....oops). My frustration is that I am in a weird phase of being BETWEEN sizes. I put the same article on in one size and it is too big and frumpy but the smaller size is too tight. Give a girl a break! :) So I decided to wait a lil longer and go in a few weeks right before I go on vacation. Hopefully the combo of those two factors will keep me extra motivated!
