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 sharing your story. It was very inspiring and really hit home for me. I too was always the "chubby little kid" no matter how skinny I was. I'm sure it would suprise my parents to learn what a profound effect that label has had on my self image. I also am becoming a later in life runner, I am doing my first Half Marathon next week in Racine Wisconsin. 2 weeks before my 50th Birthday. A year ago I would never have even dreamed of such a thing. My goal is to run the whole race but if I need to walk I will, no matter what it will be a PR for me right. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

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
