Kitty was adopted on Valentine's Day, so I think his new name will be Sir Kitty Valentino








Tapping into Camus's "invincible summer" within me and believing in future sunny days.

July 2016 -- After gaining a few more pounds to nearly 19 lbs over, I am finally on the downhill slant and starting to feel good again! 11 lbs to goal!!

February 2016 -- I have been up and down 3-5 lbs for the entire last year and a half resulting in still being 15 lbs over my goal. Nevertheless, I do indeed feel that goal is the most optimum weight for me, and I will continue to strive in reaching it once again.

August 2015 -- Now 15 pounds over my goal reached 5 years ago, and determined to close in the gap.

July 2014 -- Halfway through the Summer Challenge with 2 of 7 lbs down for the Challenge. Then 10 more to be back at the ideal weight for my body frame. :-)

October 2013 -- As I start the Fall Challenge on the Starfish team, I am presently 17 lbs above my reached goal in 2010. My mini-goal for this challenge is to lose 7.3 lbs which will bring me just below 140. Yay! I will love being below that line again. :-D

August 2013, a few down and a few back up, still struggling with the extra 15

April 2013, now a 7 lb gain for a total of 15 up, oops...

June 2012, back with an 8 lb gain (after having met my goal in January 2010)

* * * * * * *

Pondering how I ever got that heavy... how to stay motivated to keep the weight off... how to experience the joys and sorrows of life without misusing food.

Hoping to make some friends along the way as we encourage one another to develop the habits of health!

    Hi Grace, you can join the USPS Maintenance Challenge thread anytime, and the goal you set doesn't have to be your final or happy weigh- choose the one that is the most helpful and motivating to you!

    We are in week 6 of 9 of the current challenge where we post our weigh ins on a google form designed by JEANKNEE and BAPEARMAN, but there will be a new challenge soon after this one ends. If you allow Team Spark Mail, you will receive notification of the signup link and deadline - if you don't, you can still catch the announcement on the Team Wall.
