My weight has been pretty much the same for the past 7 months. I cannot get out of the 160s and STAY out of the 160s. (Wish I could leave them in Vegas!) BUT, the past few weeks several people have commented to me that I look like I’ve lo... Read more

I've never felt like crying over my weight before, but I do this morning! My weight has been slowly going down every day because I have been limiting my calories and exercising faithfully, but this morning it was up 3.2 pounds from yesterday! I ... Read more

Even though I know the scale does not define me, it still has a lot to do with how I feel about myself! I’m not feeling good right now! (“Good” in any way it can be meant!”) When I became active again on SP the last week of 09/14, I w... Read more

I’m so thankful for the 5% winter challenge! It has helped me remain focused and get below the 163 pounds I was hovering around for weeks! I have been so worried about letting the team (Go DETERMINED DAISIES!) down this week because we’ve ... Read more

I was so excited when I saw how many steps I had taken today! My eyes are “leaking,” as my son said when he was a little boy. I have spent most of my life trying to stay off my feet. I can hardly believe that now at 75 years of age I am tr... Read more

My 80-year-old husband had open-heart surgery six years ago. Since then (although, Thank you, God, he is still with us) he has struggled with extremely low energy, A fib, and extremely low heart rate. All that is in contrast to a very alert, ve... Read more

Twice in the past when I have lost a considerable amount of weight, certain triggers (words) caused me to deliberately regain it. The first time (many years ago), I lost a lot of weight in TOPS, but when a friend told me that her husband had tol... Read more

Several things have come together serendipitously that have encouraged me to start over. Last Sunday our minister was speaking about making God the number one priority in our lives, and among other things, he said DO WHATEVER IT TAKES! I do... Read more

This (first paragraph) is a comment I made on Nancy Howard’s blog, “Is Endurance Exercise the Fountain of Youth?” I have wanted to share these things on SP and this seems to be the perfect time! I am excited about the changes that exercise ... Read more

What’s gong on here? Oh … THAT!

What’s going on here? I have struggled from the beginning, but was always encouraged by slow changes that were good! I even thought for a while that I was truly being transformed into a self-disciplined, healthy-eating, exercising-regularly old ... Read more

I read Nancy Howard’s blog, EXCUSES GIVE US PERMISSION TO FAIL, and as I promised in my comment, I copied her blog to save to my computer and inserted my own excuses / permissions to fail that did indeed lead to “failure” (NAY! Setbacks that I h... Read more
