If you don't set a goal, how will you ever know when you reach your goal?

So, my list of the strategies I will be using to reach 175...by .Nov. 2013
1. Eat a lot more veggies & fruit.
2. Limit unhealthy food and keep tracking on SP.
3. Exercise.....
4. Sleep better, with a little leg & waist exercises before sleeping, because insomnia and weight loss don't work together.
5 Go to bed earlier to avoid food temptations at nite and because my body likes to get up early.


Well I've been around for 3 years now. The initial 20 lbs. are off again. Way back in the beginning: The harder I tried the more challenges I faced- I have persevered despite no losses showing on the scale and learned to see other measures of my success. Being diabetic, my blood sugar is a major indicator of successful results. When I started on SP, my bs were in the 13-15 range for early a.m, now I have my AIC go down to 6.9, and I'm still here and getting motivated again. So, there are successes other than on the scale.

Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance....

    I am bound and determined to meet you in person somehow.

    Fingers crossed: I am hoping to bring a couple young ladies home with me. Helena will be 8 months old on Saturday. I don't know where the time went! two teeth - red hair coming in - started crawling about a month ago and hasn't stopped. The best time for me to Skype with her is when she's eating. That's the only time I know she won't be alll over the place.

    Hi Lila! Indeed, I hike and go away by myself. I have discovered that if I keep waiting for someone to go away with me, or go hiking with me, then I'll never do anything! :) I am enjoying hiking alone tremendously!
    Have a beautiful week! emoticon

    It went to 61 degrees here today, with sun and little wind. Of course tomorrow it is a rain/snow mix.

    Hope you are doing well and not too much snow....hugs emoticon

    If you need a partner to travel with, I'd suggest going on a tour, where you have about 40 people in a group. In fact, some tour companies will sign you up with another person who wants to share a double room, so it saves you money. I also have read that there are web sites where you can sign up and you can list your name and find a partner to travel with. I remember when I was in high school an older lady who wrote to a number of Presbyterian churches asking if there was another widow who would want to travel with her and she found a lady in our town. Back then they went on a tour bus out of Southern Illinois.
