In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Dear Hazy Skies, Main thing to remember is that this is a life long change, not a quick fix. I couldn't be more proud of the fact that I lost 10 pounds last year, but I am more proud of the fact that I have kept them off!! emoticon You'll get to your goal with diet and exercise. Every day is a day to do something good for your health! emoticon

Hello and welcome. I'm not naturally active either but SP has helped me to see that I can enjoy doing some things other than reading etc.

you are so right - slow and steady is the way to go and to stop weighing in more than once a week or once every other week . . . more importantly than the number on the scale is how we feel and how our clothes are fitting . . . I think my weight loss has slowed from turtle speed to sloth speed but I am feeling better and being more active. I may even have to go shopping for summer clothes in a smaller size from last year emoticon emoticon

Hi everybody!

So far the diet is going okay. I was hoping to see at least one week where I would drop 2 or more pounds but that, evidently, isn't in the cards. So the whole idea behind this team pretty much fits where I am at. I am trying to stick with it and I'm trying to restrict myself to weighing-in only once a week so I don't start feeling down about it. It just seems like some people can snap their fingers and the pounds come off emoticon .

I am actually starting to like being a bit more active so I guess that is a good thing too.

Slow and steady wins the race emoticon !
