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"
THIS IS WHAT WAS ON MY INTRO FOR THE REMAINING OF 2012 FOR MY RECORDS
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
