Welcome Lorie! I'm down in Lewisberry (on the west shore, outside Harrisburg). Sounds like you hit the nail on the head by identifying some mistakes in the past you've learned from. That's great, and just how we should approach lifestyle change and move forward...one day at a time with the hard lessons behind us and used for our benefit.
BTW, love your quote below your signature, it's my favorite scripture!
“Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.”-Lance Armstrong

Hi. My name is Lorie. I live in Lewistown but lived most of my life in my home county of Lebanon. I grew up near Schaefferstown in the small village of Reistville. I belonged to SparkPeople before but then we found out in November of 2008 that my husband had stage 4 lung cancer and he passed away Feb. 4, 2009. Things were just too hectic and too stressful before and after he died. I did join Weight Watchers in 2010 and lost 80 pounds but I quit smoking and again allowed stress to get in the way of the things I needed to do. It's a new year and a new beginning and hopefully I've learned from past mistakes.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. - Philippians 4:13
This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. - Psalms 118: 24
