Thanks so so much for the words of encouragement on my day 2. This morning I walked with my walking buddy. We walk across a small bridge, The trees and shrubs get in the way on walkway. My buddy brought a small pair of shears. Yes we did a little bit of cutting back the over growth on the bridge. Wow what a morning!!. emoticon

Everyone have a great weekend...

Hi Pearl Black, Welcome back. I have been back to SparkPeople a little over a month. I am looking to lose 20-25 pounds. This site offers a lot of inspiration and hope, so good luck. Just make sure to log in daily, it helps keep you on track. Sandy

I was using SparkPeople and at some point I just stopped logging on daily. Since November my walking has not been consistent. I noticed after Christmas, between the weather and not just wanting to get up I have not been walking, I can notice a change in mid section. I lost weight in 2005 and maintained for a few years. Now I am in between a 14-16 clothes size. I know it can be done. I need encouragement of those in my age group. emoticon

Thanks in advance
Pearl Black
