In Sept., I stated that I would lose 2 sizes by the end of the year. One size is down and I'm working on the next size.
I am still working on the weight I gained since I left the gym and stopped taking classes towards my degree (that I've been working on since 1972), last Dec. I had lost 47 lbs and gained all of it back. I still had a lot more weight to lose, even with the 47 gone.
When I had lost the weight, I gave ALL of my heavier clothes to Dress for Success and a family member, and bought new clothes. When I gained again, I was left with NO clothes in a larger size, so of course I had to purchase more big clothes so that I wouldn't have to walk around in squeezed in clothing. You know how awful that looks. Plus, I stayed in the house during those days.
I started Weight Watchers in August, for accountability and I make sure that I track points and calories daily. So far I have lost 15 lbs.
Posting on SP and reading various articles and books on health and fitness have helped me tremendously on this journey. But most of all, my faith has picked me up and held me when I have slipped, tripped and even fallen.
