Wouldn't it be nice to just lounge and listen to the ocean roar anytime we wanted?

Adventures in Semi-Retirement

I have been on SP for about 10 years I think although I have been trying something different for the past six months. That didn't work too well so I am back to SP. That is because while I was first on SP I lost 20 pounds, maintained it for two years and then gained five pounds per year so that I now am heavier than I was when I joined.

I have been on SP for about 10 years I think although I have been trying something different for the past six months. That didn't work too well so I am back to SP. That is because while I was first on SP I lost 20 pounds, maintained it for two years and then gained five pounds per year so that I now am heavier than I was when I joined. Mostly because I went inactive on SparkPeople and fairly inactive in my life. A diagnosis of pre diabetes has sent me back to the place where I was initially successful. To do it again. It is frustrating to think I can't wave a magic wand and start my healthy eating at the place I was six years ago but I know what it will take to eventually get there:
1) Exercise at least 45 minutes a day, 6 days a week, as well as walk sufficient steps to total 10,000.
2) Follow healthy eating plan, counting and recording calories, daily.

Remember you are worth the effort.
I added you as a friend and I sure hope you'll add me as one of yours.
