I've always really liked turtles - even have a small collection of turtle figurines, each with its own story - and finding box turtles in the yard makes me smile. But I never planned to BE one, and never would have thought I'd be DELIGHTED that a turtle is exactly what I am.
No black magic or funny mushrooms involved here, just a weight loss metaphor. After years of yoyoing by 5+ pounds a week, losing and gaining 20-40 pounds at a time and torturing my body with those swings, SP has made weight loss safe and sane for me. At my age (I'm 64), it's likely that half a pound a week is exactly the right number - and I'm THRILLED about it!
I'm a turtle...just a half a pound a week is being given back to the universe :)...slow and steady... So today I changed my weight loss icon to a turtle, and I'll add some turtles to my SparkPage this week.
This turtle is here for the long haul! Thank you so very much everyone, thanks Chris. Thank God.
