Maintaining Goal Weight

2015 is the year for maintaining my new lower weight. 2015 may also be a year for shedding another 5-10 lbs as well.

2014 was the year to finish my journey to an ideal goal weight-- and to begin work on maintaining that weight indefinitely.

I began here in January 2010 as PennyAn45.

During the past 5 years on Spark People, I have changed my eating and exercising behaviors and have permanently shed 30+ pounds.

Spark People is my community of friends -- all of whom are working toward the same goals. They inspire me and have become an important presence in my life.

Thank you so much for your very thoughtful comments on my blog about family and connections. I really appreciate when people take the time to leave something meaningful and thought-provoking.

In particular, I liked your ideas about how the Internet actually helps us keep in touch with "our tribe." I was focusing on the negative - that families and individuals are so far-flung - but you rightly point out that we can be in daily contact with people now at the touch of a keyboard. I like your thought that technology has actually broadened our ability to connect with others.

And I agree about SP - I go missing for months at a time, usually because my work is seasonal and leaves me not much time at the end of the day - but when I return, my "tribe"is still here, welcoming me back. I would not have these friends - and SP friends are true friends - were it not for the Internet.
