Glad You Stopped By!

4/29/2008 The day I began my SP journey

Lost 75 pounds the first 3 years, then hit a wall-menopause!

Gained 20 pounds back & tried for 2 years to lose it-NOTHING!
But I didn't give up, came close many times, but the advantages of losing 75 lbs stayed in my mind, and I wanted that good feeling back!!

And now, 6 years after starting my journey, I am finally getting that feeling back!! The scale is moving the right way again, and I am feeling good ...
4/29/2008 The day I began my SP journey

Lost 75 pounds the first 3 years, then hit a wall-menopause!

Gained 20 pounds back & tried for 2 years to lose it-NOTHING!
But I didn't give up, came close many times, but the advantages of losing 75 lbs stayed in my mind, and I wanted that good feeling back!!

And now, 6 years after starting my journey, I am finally getting that feeling back!! The scale is moving the right way again, and I am feeling good about ME!

I am so proud I didn't give up! I started going to the gym, something I never thought I'd do! But, since finding SP, there's been several things I never thought I'd experience. One biggie was the first time I stepped onto a tennis court, wow, that feeling was awesome!! Me, at 270+ pounds, but I got up the courage to try!

Another, being able to pushmow the grass more than a few minutes without being short of breath and legs hurting. Now I love mowing, and can go for hours!

And, my latest surprise has been at the gym-I have found a new exercise I love-the row machine! I was very hesitant to try it, worried about what others would think, what I looked like, etc., but now, I dont care about that. I enjoy it and it is helping me reach my goals!!

My weight is on its way back down, but my confidence and health are on the rise!!
