Still at it ;)

In 2008 I lost 50 pounds and was extremely fit I even ran a marathon, yup just over 42 km(26.2 miles) I kept it off for a year or so, then gradually gained 40 back. I said enough already and lost 30 pounds, and then, you guessed it, the scale once again started it's upward climb and I gained 13 pounds back. So 2013 brought a new resolve to lose the weight once and for all, I lost the 13 pounds but here I sit still trying to lose 35 pounds.
What am I going to do differently this year? ...

What am I going to do differently this year? I have hired a personal trainer to get me through the strength training which I keep putting off . I have restarted my running program that a back injury put a halt to last spring, and I have my lovely fit bit (which I have become addicted to) to keep a running total of the calories I my or may not consume and of course my fantastically supportive spark friends.

Thanks for visiting my page - loved the quote about starting and a new ending - I have to keep reminding myself I am not "restarting" whenever I have strayed, as I am always a step ahead from where I began

Weight loss is a journey, there will be set backs, good moments and bad. But just remember we all start and stumble but it is the journey, which makes us who we are. Stay strong, stay motivated and shine bright!
