My Goals:
Here are a few:

Live a healthier, more fit lifestyle.

Reverse my bone density loss.

Become more attractive again - both for myself and for my husband (although he still finds me attractive just as I am, God bless him!).

Fit into my pretty clothes (from 2 sizes ago).

My Program:
I'm tracking my calories/nutrition, drinking more water, trying to establish an exercise habit, reading SP articles, determining the calories and nutritional data for my favorite recipes and adding them to my Nutrition Tracker favorites, and making myself enter and be accountable for my eating and exercising activities.

Other Information:
I'm a digital marketing strategist/user experience expert, and also design and create one-of-a-kind and custom jewelry...something for each side of my brain! :)

Hi there!!! Thanks for getting back to me and updating me on your progress! It sounds like you are doing FABULOUS!!! You have the positive attitude I like to see. I'm so glad you took measurements so you can see that progress as you go, even if the scale doesn't show it! I made the mistake of not doing that from the beginning, and now I don't know how many inches I lost from when I started, as well as I got very down because I gained like 5 lbs but my clothes fit better. Needless to say I then measured myself! I will be weighing in tomorrow... hopefully I went back down. I never added the weight back on to the SP weigh in thing!! haha

Thank you for saying you are proud of me! Its so nice to have all of the support from my SP friends. I swear this is the best place!!! It always makes me feel so much better after I have gotten online!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Thank you so much for your supportive words on my blog. You have been so inspiring to me! You are right, even though the weight loss is going slow for me, at least it is going the right direction. Sometimes even though I know I am doing things right, it really gets me down. I have been doing "the right thing" (exercise and eating right) for so long with no results and actually going up...I found out that was because I have Pre-Diabetes. My body wasn't letting all of my hard work pay off! Now that I know what is wrong, I keep thinking the hard work should really be paying off more than what it is. I am doing everything right so I know it will pay off!!! I just have my down days sometimes and your comments have really made me feel better. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I really appreciate the time you took to visit my page and leave me such encouraging words for me to think about.

You are a special person!! Thank you!!! emoticon
