"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards."

Soren Kierkegaard


OK, so in '02 I lost 55# on my plan, no tracking, just walking & ST, intake reduction. So proud of myself for doing it, but then.....with no plan, no tracking, no idea how to do MAINTENANCE....well it came right back on. What a hard lesson to learn. Arrrggghhh.... Oh yes, I certainly understand this looking backwards NOW!!! And living it forwards....I now understand and have learned from that hard knock that all of this diligence must continue FOREVER!!!! Thank you Sparkpeople for giving me the 'plan', the tracking, the accountability, the support network and the knowledge to KNOW how to do it successfully this time around. It feels great when you finally get something right!!!!!! With a little help from your SP friends!


Mileage: 9.66 miles
ST: core; upper body

Hope your Sunday was blessed and wonderful!! emoticon

    I needed this today. I've been on a plateau for 6 weeks and last Mon decided to go back to basics and have a weigh in tonight. If it was successful, I plan to stay on it...but if least I can say that I maintained what I had lost. I haven't lost anymore because of trying to follow advice that said...'moderation'. There are some things I will just have to avoid. really is a journey and I'm so glad you're motivating me to continue making good choices. keep Sparkin'!!

    I couldn't have put it any better than that quote! Same for me re: maintenance. I have most of the tools to lose the weight, but it's KEEPING it off that gets tricky!!

HUGS and thanks for sharing.
