How's this for a "Vision Photo"!.....lol
Last time I was at my goal weight 1994 - Part of my vision collage

I began weight loss and daily treadmill exercise on 12/29/10 and followed WW food plan until I found SP on Jan. 27. I have been using SP guidelines in planning my food since then.

For 2015, I have sustained a 65lb weight loss since Jan 2012. I continue to average 8k steps daily and at least 1k exercise points per month.
Current; loose 50lbs. By 6/27/16.

Thank you Tim,
It makes me feel fabulous to dress in a fashionable way,
To me getting older doesn't mean losing your personality, your style.
Maybe tone it down a bit. Smile!!
Hope you are enjoying the Summer.
It's been hot here, and I eat a lot less in extreme hot weather. Or I eat more healthy. Lot's of salads. Cool, foods. So taking advantage of summer and see if I can lose a little more. For winter can put it back.

Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my "Chef Boyar 'B'" Blog the other day! That is pretty funny that it made you hungry and you had to eat your salad early lol. If you give the potatoes a try, let me know what you think! Hope you have a great week!

Hi Tim, Just read the message. I'm happy to hear how you feel. Your attitude to succeed is what you need , You have all the right things going for you. Attitude, determination and motivation and drive. You are doing it, you will continue to do it and you will succeed.
It's been four years, five months since I started on my journey. Eve though I have reached a very happy place in my life. Health and fitness are good. this journey will continue.
That's what makes a life time change so different from just a diet and weight loss. There's no quitting. You modify, but you have to stay observant and dedicated to living the healthy, fit way for life. Otherwise you can and will slip back in the abyss.
The abyss of obesity is a place I never want to see again.
I just had my four years anniversary here on Spark. I don't have any plans to leave. Being on Spark helps keep in staying aware of my daily goals and in touch with some fantastic friends .
Hope you are enjoying the Spring and are able to get out and participate in outdoor activities.
As much as i enjoy my gym time, I love what I do outdoors. There is something about walking, ,hiking , biking in the fresh air that exhilarating.
I hope to have a new blog wth some new pictures soon. It's just a matter of finding time. Time and I , we are always at odds. Smile!!
Be strong, stay positive.

Hey, thanks for the support on my blog, it means a lot. Back issues are a pretty devastating thing to go through. Hoping yours gets better as well! I keep wondering if losing weight would help a lot more.
