A Pound at a Time

All my life I was always in shape, but then I hit 19, and my weight just kind of blew up. I went from 118 to 155. I worked to bring myself down to 130-135 for a while, but after many stresses (moving, financial, and a break-up) my weight shot up to 160 pounds.

I'm trying to go into this with realistic expectations. I know the lower my weight gets, the hard it will to be to drop the pounds. I've adjusted my short term goals accordingly.

I will try to post as I reach each mini-goal.

Welcome! If you need a shoulder, a friend or a virtual coffee at some point, drop by and say hello! I've just celebrated my SP eight month anniversary and am amazed at the absolutely incredible amount of support I've received. This is a fabulous site and you will be astounded at what you get out of it if you give it your all.

To celebrate your arrival at SP in this soon-to-be summer season, I would like to wish you a everlasting renewal of energy and passion, for this is a time to celebrate the great potential you possess. May the sun shine upon you and fire up your heart to reach all of your goals and find joy in yourself and the world around you. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may you find energy, confidence, vitality and strength. This is the time to shine bright and show the world how beautiful you are. Embrace the summer-lit brilliance of each day and you will create a new life where all your wildest dreams come true. ~ Michelle
