Although I joined SP in May I really didn't participate until last week. I am 50+lbs over my lowest weight after losing 150+ lbs on WW. I am not sure how I ended up back in this situation, but I know I am determined to see my healthy weight again. So, who starts a new weightloss program the week before Thanksgiving - me! So far I have found this site to be informational & highly motivational. I am determined NOT to gain my usual 10lbs between now and Jan 1. While family and friends use this time of year as an excuse to overindulgence, I am using it as an excuse to try new recipes and make time for me. Yes, my family says I always do things the hard way - after all, wouldn't it be much easier to start this next year when everyone is doing it. But, I enjoy the extra challenge & having a head start on meeting my goals. Plus, I'll know if resolve to live healthynfornthe long haul can make it through these next 6 weeks I can make these changes permanently.

Consult not your fears, but your hopes and dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your full potential. Concern yourself not with what you have tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible to do.
