Half-Fast Old Lady 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

P = persistence



Personal Information:
65 years old, 5'6", 129-134 pounds. Retired social worker-grant writer-nonprofit administrator. One adult daughter. I keep my two darling granddaughters 4-6 days a week when my DD & DSIL work. Weigh less right now than I did in junior high. Have struggled with weight all my life, but I just may have it now!!

Thank you very much for visiting my blog. I think the Maintenance team has been crucial for getting this far, and with the plateaus and small weight losses, it would be so easy to let it all go. Thank you so much for your support. emoticon

I sure hope that I am nearing the end of my illness. I feel like I have lost most of the summer.

The chickens are entered in the State Fair for our GC. I doubt they will even notice but DH sure did.
