Hi Carolyn. Congrats on the weight loss. Sorry you gained some back but if you lost it once I know you will lose it again. We just have to find a new life style. Not just go on a diet. That does not work. Shirley

I agree. You have to find something you like doing and take advantage of it, or you could try new things. you may find one or two you'll enjoy just as much. Mix it up so you not only don't get bored,but it keeps your body working for you making it easier to lose and you don't end up at a standstill. Good luck.
What do you LOVE to do that's active? You have to figure it out. If it's playing with a special child in your life, or if it's playing basketball, swimming, dancing, riding a bike...hiking...find something YOU love and do lots of it!
I always promote mine. I started taking Zumba Fitness in December, teach it now and have lost and kept off 30 lbs. It's latin based dance fitness class.

My name is Carolyn. I've been with SP since Jan 08 and lost 22 pounds but put all but 13 of that back on. I walk for exercise, but recently have not been getting enough steps to move me out of the sedentary stage. I wear a pedometer. I'm looking for FUN ways to exercise. Maybe you on this team will motivate me!
