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 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 I don't feel like a Steel Magnolia, and being born in Ohio-I would say I feel more like a Snow drop-buried under the snow but still trying to peek out. I am also glad that we have connected and are friends. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I am "on the run" today but just had to take a moment to thank you for your precious support on my page. I warmly welcome and appreciate it!

Try keeping your water glass half empty today -- so keep drinking!

When is comes to a positive attitude.....keep that glass "half full"! Have an awesome day!
