The difference between try and triumph is a little umph!

First goal: Obese no more. 199lbs.

My name is Toni, I'm 32 and 210 lbs. (Up to 220 now Sep 2013)
I lost 50lbs with Sparkpeople 5 years ago. I felt fantastic, got a new wardrobe, bags of confidence, a crazy busy social life.
Then I started to chose the easier, more fun option. I stopped going for walks and cooking healthy meals.

Then I started to chose the easier, more fun option. I stopped going for walks and cooking healthy meals.
I started saying yes to that party, that restaurant, that piece of cake....everytime.
It is 3 years down the line, and I'm reaping what I sowed.
40lbs is back.
I keep trying to slip back into that spark groove. It should be easy! I know how to do it!
But my attempts don't stick, I just keep yoyoing back to where I started.
I think it is time to face the fact, that the way out, is the path I followed in.
I need make the right choices, even though they are small, and seemingly inconsequential.
I need to make them everyday.

So I am starting over again. Promising myself that I will track and move.
That I will hold myself to account alongside you.
That I won't let my impatience for progress, get me down.
Until I have given the little choices long enough to start adding up.


5 weeks to Christmas!

Hi Toni! Glad you've joined us. I've been knitting for many years, and wanted to knit sox, but was intimidated just thinking of it. A few years ago, a friend urged and encouraged me to start - "it isn't that hard" she said. So I bought a "Teach Yourself Visually Sock Knitting" book, plunged into it, asked my friend a few questions and I've never looked back. I love it, and you're right - cozy warm socks are wonderful. If you know someone who can knit sox, ask her/him for help in getting started. I have several pair in my dresser drawer, and have knitted sox for one of my daughters and a sister-in-law. They love 'em. Go for it!

I have been knitting for about nine years now. I love it. It is so good for me and I love giving my things away to others. I run my own knitting charity and that gives me tons of knitting options.
