I have been stitching since I was six. It seems I have been worrying about my weight that long. This group came along at a time when I was ready to concentrate on losing.
I served a four year term on the Board of Directors of ANG and had initially planned to be at my goal before my term was over. This did not happen, but I have not gained any weight back along the way. I have adjusted my goals for the rate I am losing at this time.
It seems that I hvae been gaining and losing the same five pounds for several months. I have a well ingrained habit of exercise. If I do not get my time in riding the recumbant bike, I can tell.
I feel better than when I started but haave not made the progress i would like to make. I seem to be stuck in a long plateau. I am not gaining but I am not losing either. I readjusted by weight ticker to show more progress, instead of my initial starting point.

“Nobody ever talks about the pyramids that weren't built, the books that weren't written, the songs that weren't sung.
Stop letting your fear condemn you to mediocrity. Get out of your own way.
Your dreams are a poetic reflection of your soul's wishes. Be courageous enough to follow them.
There is no greater time than now to experience the full power of your potential.
Make this the day you take the first step in the beautiful journey of bringing your dreams to life.”
-Steve Maraboli

Just stopped by to say I'm noticing how well you're doing on the Spring Challenge - 120 mins exercise and 8pts for water! That's wonderful!

“The magic that turns dreams into reality is YOU!
When you are inspired by a dream, create a good plan; that turns it into a goal.
Then, live your life in a way that will bring that dream, that goal, to life. The magic is you.”
