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.

Great catch and call out on the Hockey team...my fave is the Tampa Bay Lightning, because I saw them born (went to their first exhibition game at the fairgrounds, then St Pete for the Thunderdome, and then Tampa as a season ticket holder). I also hold a fond spot for the NY Rangers. I really can't follow the RedWings because I have an obnoxious cousin who LOVES them, so that soured it for me!

Thanks for sending me the goodie... I appreciate you taking the time to do so.

Hope that you are having a successful challenge... remember, success consists of getting up just one more time than you’ve fallen down!
