Maintaining 80 Pound Loss with SP & Relentless Determination!

I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high and I've lost over 50 pounds since Dec. 2008. In 2009 I achieved a healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I always wanted!

I've gained this weight back many times. But now with SP I've learned the relentless determination it takes for long term success! -Marsha

Thank you Marsha, Not so sure about the halo; but I do care. My nephew had psoriasis and I know how difficult it can be to live with. His diet was atrocious; and he wasn't willing to change. Sad. I have no doubt you will figure this out. Thank you so much for the "wings". Smiles, Joy

I have been reading through your Beck blogs for a couple of weeks now and just wanted to say thank you so much for sharing. I searched your pages of blogs and kept them open for over two weeks. I have the pink beck so it is familiar but the simplification and personal touches were so beneficial. I gained some insight and overcame some fear and rebellion towards her strategies. Your journey is inspiring. Keep Sparking!

Congrats on new base weight goal!

Hope foot treatments are helping!

Well, John is actually worse today but I think it is about to turn around for him...he has gone through two boxes of Puffs SO FAR. Ugh. We stay away from each other like the plague emoticon

Yes, I remember my mom's when we used to visit down there...never went in the summer...TOO hot...but these days that seems Oh-So-Preferable to our cold here. It is going back to 6 tonite and only went up to 30 that I saw! And when we were out walking (yes, bless his heart he still walked) it was flurrying "heavily" but that was all!

TWO days left... emoticon emoticon emoticon

Love,
Gaye
