I re-read my spinning my wheels profile paragraph that I updated in November 2011, after being on SP for 4 1/2 years. I had to laugh at myself when I read the part that maybe I was a little smarter.
I am nearly two years older and feel dumber than ever. Yes, I am down about 5 more pounds than when that paragraph was written and in years past I would have given up or at least been on a weight gaining spree, but feel like things ingeneral have not changed.
I did read something the other day. "Pick your hard". Losing weight, maintaining, or being fat. They are all hard. I guess maintaining isn't so bad. Small losses at a time don't feel like progress, but in reality, they are. I have not seen my weight over 225 since starting SP and I couldn't say that 10 years ago.
I am happy that I am close to the 180's. (I actually have been in there and out and back a few times in the last 6 months) I am down 30 plus pounds and very grateful for that. I have a more active lifestyle and a healthier eating pattern. I guess that's progress.
