Retirement - My Grand Adventure

Eight years ago I started SparkPeople at my highest weight ever - 230 pounds. I got down to 196 lbs before life got in the way and got back up to 223.

Friday was my last day of work. When I was asked my plans for retirement, my reply was "Get back into shape and take off some of the 50 lbs I gained while working here!"

Since part of that plan was to spend a lot of time walking, my gifts were all hiking supplies - wonderful!

"Progress. Just make progress. It's okay to have setbacks and the need for do-overs. It's okay to draw a line in the sand and start over again --- and again. Just make sure you're moving the line forward. Move forward. Take baby steps, but at least take steps that keep you from being stuck. Then change will come.
And it will be good."
