After letting myself go for years, it's time to get back to my playing weight!! The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight because by then, your body and your fat are really good friends.

01/03/13 - planning health strategy, meals, exercise, accountability partners, and taking it one day at a time.

1/8/2010- First update in ages.....well after losing 26 i slowly began to put it back on as I went back to old habits and stopped tracking and exercising regulary. Well time to get back on track, learn from my mistakes, understand my successes and get motivated again. I am determined not to make the same mistakes.

3/2/09 Well I'm in my 9th week and I've dropped 21 lbs which is the first time I 've been able to stay motivated in ages and I believe tracking, measuring and working out regularly has really helped. Lots of great people on SP who are fun and motivating. Starting to feel better and actually was able to increase my treadmill speed from 4 to 4.6 and feel pretty good. Trying to alternate my exercises and stay motivated.

    Every day that I get thru without binging, motivates me to do good again the next day and the next. Baby steps. If I fall off the wagon, I get right back on the next day. I figure if I have more good days than bad days,,the scale should move in the right direction. Never give up,,,we are worth it!
