Go!! Quitting Just Puts You Further Behind!

My journey on SP began after seeing a picture of me taken Memorial Day weekend 2009. The picture helped me see how I appeared to the world - not just my weight, but how I carried myself. I lost 50 lbs between 2009 and 2010. I approached my weight loss like it was a long-term project. I never got too disappointed when the weight did not come off quickly and I did not give up when I made the wrong choices. That mindset was the key to my success. I remember the moment I started to let it slip. ...

My Goals:
I do best when I focus my attention to a specific date.
The first "lily pad" January 31. That's 4 weeks from now. My goal is to be exercising at least 4 days per week by that date and hitting 5000+ steps on other days. I've become very inactive so this will be a big shift. As far as weight loss, I'm hopeful for a strong loss the first month as I get my nutrition back on track.

My Program:
Nutrition: Balanced diet, calorie counting and tracking food in SP.

Exercise: Walking, DVDs for cardo C210K app to start running again and strength training.

Thank you for the blog comments! I'm so grateful I was able to reset myself as well. I will say, in the past, that would have led to a re-gain (plus some) of all of my weight, so now, instead of being angry that I slipped up, I'm THRILLED I'm back. When I feel that way now, it is so great, because I really needed to change that attitude. I think I'm good for this now, to see what I'm doing, where I'm at...

I thought of you when I was on my vacation. Your profile image is a mermaid, and at one time I thought it was a doll with yarn for hair. Well, we were in Savannah, and my daughter saw one and she wanted it so bad! She LOVED it. So we bought it for her, and I kept meaning to get back and tell you, but I forgot!
