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.

It's gotta just be the time of year. I know I've been lazier the past month or so than I was all year. Even my competitive spirit isn't forcing me to get fitbit steps! Motivation is zilch -- which is why we have to be here for each other with a swift kick when needed!

Thank for the comments on my page! I should probably look into protein bars myself, I know what you mean about cravings without enough. I've never understood those mayo salads, but that was what we had as a 'salad' this thanksgiving (ugh.) Next year I'm bringing a real one, just in case.
