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

With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for
yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an
opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.
~~Wayne Dyer~~

Wishing you a Healthy, Happy Week

Marsha, you named exactly why I could never do the fatloser thing before. He was too much "in your face" but this time since Beck approached it so much more "quietly" I am not minding it. I am only up to day 4 today so give it a try...it would make me feel good knowing you were doing it too!

Again, THANK YOU for ALL your help, Marsha! You are truly the emoticon emoticon emoticon

Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage.
