I've been away from SparkPeople for awhile now (I did confess to having a bad habit of beginning things and then giving up)...but I really haven't given up...just lost my way a bit. I have been able to lose some weight since leaving...I was at 304 when I was here last...I am at 291 now. I cannot express the feeling I felt when I stepped on the scale and had a reading of 299...to be under 300 pounds for the first time in nearly 18 years was the best feeling ever! I have been so encouraged since then and am trying desperately to reach for one mile stone at a time...setting my goals at 10 pound intervals so that it is not too overwhelming.Hopefully I can finally realize some tangible success...I am determined to see this thing through...I am praying for discipline daily.
