I have failed so many times that long ago I gave up goals and dreams. Long ago, I would have said I wanted to weigh 135 pounds, like when I was in high school. Long ago, I would have dreamt about going to a beach and wearing a pretty swimsuit without having to cover all of the fat. There were so many things I would have done and would have wanted to do. SparkPeople, the book, and my success so far are re-awakening y hopes and dreams. I am down 21 pounds since the beginning of the summer with 9 pounds to go to hit that long ago goal. I am happy to be going slow right now, because I started at a pound a week. I am eating more now and that is good so I don;t experience that "starvation" mode with my body. I have yo-yoed for so long, I'd rather be a turtle. Thanks Chris. Thanks SparkTeam. You have made this work for me!
