2012 Will be known as the year of ONEderland for me

Sunday, April 01, 2012

I have been down this road so often. My highest weight was 240.75 on 10/8/1998. That was when I joined TOPS. I have never gone over that amount, but, I could never get past the 200 and stay out of it. I went back over all of my paperwork, yes, I have every year saved of my weekly weigh in's since 1998. Oh I have flirted with it a time or two or three. I made it to 194.50 in 2008, became pretty sick, and well that was that. But I never gave up and this year I just QUIT worrying about it. i had too much else on my mind that was critical, but, I still weighed in every week and so just

When my weigh in was this past week and I knew I had really had a good week, I could not wait to weigh in :

I left TOPS in 2010 and formed my own group in my home. We call ourselves the Weight Loss Warriors WLW so we would have accountability. Between WLW and SPARKS I am on the right track.
So in the words of Jimmy Buffett " You don't have to work it all out, you just need a place to start and if it never worked before, try it just once more as that is what your heart is for" emoticon

4/1/2012 UPDATE I am so excited to break the 200 number. Now I will see this everytime I log in to remind myself of that.
I will stay focused and driven, and let nothing discourage or distract me.
And when all else fails, Breathe in , Breathe out. and move on. And I will keep moving in the right direction.

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one
-John Lennon
