Fact is I like to sit and eat.
AND, I know it's unhealthy. BUT I'm going to do it again, anyway. I am going to start another attempt/journey on getting healthy.

I don't know if I'll be successful.
I don't know if I'll fall back into my old ways.
I don't know a lot of things.
But, I do know that when you fall you have to stand up, dust yourself off and try again.
So, here goes nothing! ...pass on the positive energy, I can use it!!!!

Today is a special day. It is the day I start again.
I am returning to SP after a 7 month hiatus of thinking I could this alone. But, truth is until I get to my goal, I cannot do this alone. It takes diligence and support. The secret is that you've got to eat less and exercise more.
So, I here I am to try this again. I know I can do it! Wish me luck.

It's almost a year later and I have gained some weight back. Truthfully, I am not happy when I think about that. But, like the page title says, "I am going to keep trying."

Some good things about the 2 years since I started SP
- I drink more than 8 glasses of water a day. I do it without thinking now. It's not a struggle any more.
- I still fit into 20W clothes (although they are tight). But, I am not back in 24W!
- I eat smaller portions.
- I read labels

That's really my goal. I want to make new habits. And I have reached a modicum of success. Now it's time to learn new ones and re-enforce the old ones. So DO OVER!

2.3.08: Last year I turned 50 and with the help of SP, I lost 50lbs. Losing 50lbs has been the most liberating thing in my life. I have been reveling in the fact I wear a size 20W now. I know it is still a large size, but when compared to wearing a 24W, it is wonderful.

Losing 50lbs helped me to eliminate fear too. I am ice skating again without the fear that I won't be able to get up if I fall. I dance Salsa for many songs in a row without the fear that I will need my inhaler or I will tire easily and the fear that my partner will not be able to reach around me. Eeeeeekkkk...

However, I crashed and burned after 6 months. I found that I didn't learn the lifestyle changes needed to maintain my weight loss. But, it wasn't all that bad. There were some things that I did change and some things that need to be re-enforced. So, I am back and I am willing to apply my mind, body and soul to my lifestyle changes.
