Happy New Year Sparkpeople family.

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 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. :)

    Hi. I'm back. Gained all my weight back and it is time again to take it off. How have you been doing? Looks like you have kept most of your weight off. Good job!

    Hi, thanks for the comment on my photo! I would love to go back to Puerto Vallarta one day, such a cool town. It would be great to rock P.V. in a nice bikini, too!
    Keep on with your great progress!

    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
