Howdy! I'm Robin! I finally decided I was done with excuses not to be healthy. I have over one hundred pounds to loose and plan to do it one pound at a time. I'm a single, with no kids, school teacher. Yep - the stereotypical old maid school marm. I love my work and my life except for health issues. My hope is that Spark People and I can work together to make a healthier me.

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much! - Helen Keller

Start every day ...

Hi Robin! I am glad you are starting over too! I became blase about everything. I went through Christmas without gaining any weight and I thought I had it licked. No, I was folling myself! It is a daily journey! Coem along! Let's see what we can do! I welcome you along! emoticon

Hey, I may be your twin, I went out to mall got a couple of things that I needed and then went to the grocery store and got that done and came home.

Saw on the "Healthy Reflections Email" message board that you've been struggling and consider giving up... I'm SO sorry to hear this!! PLEASE keep hanging in there and KNOW that YOU are worth this!!!!! We all have "bad times" during this journey -- yesterday was a good example for ME -- I gave into my "stress eating habit"... And it can be VERY frustrating BUT I see on your page you had/have lost 33 pounds!! WOW WOW WOW!!! That's BEYOND AWESOME!!! You've obviously GOT what it takes to do this!! emoticon

Noticed you're a teacher -- KUDOS to you!!!!! You guys are the MOST underpaid, overworked people that walk this earth!! THANK YOU for what you do!!

I'm also guessing that's part of your "issue".... You're SO used to taking care of EVERYONE else and putting EVERYONE else ahead of YOUR needs etc.... This time, do it for YOU -- put the SAME CARE into YOU as you do the people/kids you teach!! You deserve it!

Hang in there!! emoticon

Hello my emoticon

So, our paths have crossed on the FFF team. emoticon
It appears we have other similarities as well. 1st being the ' running ' issue. They say wearing 2 bras help. Sure emoticon I think, they is actually a she that is only a barely B cup. Good grief!
2nd, we both, ARE going to shed around the same amount of weight. Though my weight loss ticker says 31 lbs pounds, that is just a mini goal I set. Just so the task doesn't appear so daunting. I'm actually GOING to lose between 92 -115 lbs. We'll see what my now over 50 metabolism allows me.
3rd (and probably not final) We WILL do this pound by pound, day by day. Creating a healthy lifestyle for long term. emoticon

Thanks for taking an interest in my story. I'm truly tired of traveling that road. I WILL complete this journey and value my new life there.
Here's hoping to be neighbors! emoticon

Focus on results, you see no change. Focus on change, you see results!

That's my mantra and I'm sticking to it
emoticon

Looking forward to being a supportive emoticon

TTYS.......

Thanks for responding to my post that was featured in a community highlight in the beginning of June title 100 Pound Loss Maintained for 4 Months. I am so sorry that is has taken me so long to acknowledge your post. The community response was overwhelming.
