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. :)

    Just wanted to say how much I loved your response to the growing old blog! Wow, it even got me a little teary when you quoted the song lyrics. So true! I love getting older and am enjoying each year more than the last. I just turned 54 so we're in the same age group. I'm sure glad to be in such good company! Thank You
