I am back as of June 26, 2017. After reading my intro I've decided to keep it as, the thought process is the same. I am looking forward to another journey of a 40 pound weight loss beginning today.

January 8, 2008 was the beginning of my journey with Sparkpeople. FIVE years now and I remember it well. So determined to utilize this great opportunity to lose weight - FREE - and allowing myself to call the shots. I taught myself how to be honest about what I eat. I learned to eat so much healthier through so many good recipes. I played with and studied this website with its multitude of resources and felt I hit a gold mine. It was up to me to start digging!
Beginning weight was 180 as I watched the pounds slowly melt off. I remember the first person who noticed and asked me directly if I'm on a diet cause I'm looking good. What a feeling it was.
The clothes became loose, the backache went away, the energy level increased and my best weigh-in was at 152. Almost 30 pounds lighter. WOW, I was feeling good. I'm big boned so 152 is a good weight. I even got into a size 7 pants!
I'm back today and every day again. I know the routine and I know what I need to do to lose the 15 pounds I've gained back. I can't think of a better day to start than on my anniversary.
Happy Anniversary Mini-me. :)

Walk at LEAST 12,000 steps/day when ever I can

Less carbs, more protein

Do not exceed daily cals

Give and receive using this wonderful SP world



Personal Information:
I want to age with grace not excess weight.

30 pounds ago, I didn't know where to go. Finding SP has been my little miracle. I FINALLY TRULY know what I need to do.

Thank you Sparkguy (and your team) for making this website available to the millions of us searching for our solution and making it accessible to us at no cost. You truly believe in all of us.

The only thing nicer than having someone telling you "wow...you look great" is FEELING great about yourself!!!!

    Hi, there -- thanks for your encouraging words. I had plantar fasciitis for a while this fall, so that kept me from being as active as I wanted to be -- that was probably what put me back to square one.

    It's hard to do this because for most of my life, I weighed much less and never had to care about it. Now that I'm of a 'certain age', my former lifestyle is catching up with me.

    Thanks for cheering me up and reminding me that it's all a process. emoticon
