well i am not used to blogging, so will give this a go. i do like to write, but have never blogged, so hoping i will like blogging LOL
today is my first official day of this weight loss journey. i have a long ways to go. so i have set my first goal to loose 50lbs. i have always had a weight problem most of my life. i am now 50 years of age and will be a year older in less than 6 months. i have lost lots of weight a few times over the years, but it seems i have always allowed stress and life to take over my feelings, emotions, hurts etc, which always led to stress eating, and no, it was never munching on celery sticks! ha!
i do know that when i loose the first 20 lbs, i will start to feel better. i have lost weight fast before, but this time losing 1-2lbs a week is okay with me. life has taught me to be more patient...all good things take time. one positive is when i did step on the scale, the number wasn't as high as i expected it to be, and that is a very good thing especially after the holidays! ha!
okay, abit about me.... i am an rn, went back to school as a single mom, and have now been an rn for 7yrs. so yes, i know about health reasons to loose the weight. know about nutrition. but because one knows about these things does not mean they always make the right choices. that has been me. my biggest goal of my life now is to make 2013 my biggest success and to keep the weight i loose off this time. i have posted photos of me on the wall above my computer of when i was younger and slimmer, oh would be nice to be not only slim again but also young again...ha! but only if i could retain my knowledge. but since that wont happen, i am okay with the slimmer side of this!
so my goal is to try to blog something on a daily basis. and if i accomplish that, perhaps that will keep me on track for this life changing event of mine.

    welcome to the world of blogging. It is a great way to keep a journal of your progress. It also allows others to see your progress and offer encouragement ans suggestions.

    The program here at SP works. I have lost 30# in a little over 3 months. It has also alerted me to the fact that I am not doing things properly right now. My weight is going up but at least I know why thanks to the nutrition tracker.

    Use all the tools available here at SP and you will succeed.
