I'm back on track after caring for my daughter (and her 3 children) and my husband after they both had major surgeries.

My intention was to lose weight over the holidays. I was hoping for a 10-12 pound loss. I lost only 2 1/2 pounds, which was better than gaining 10-15, of course. So now it's a new year, and I'm trying again, this time with my Sweetie who wants to lose, really needs to lose, actually. So far so good.

Not fond of winter either but being in Mexico helps. Right now I wake to cool air but not nearly what it is in northern Canada.

i'm back to doing what's right for me and that's losing weight.i always need that little bit of help or encougment to keep going and i should say i get lazy during the winter.i hate cold weather so i dont go on my daily walks like i do in the summer.so i've gained about 20lbs to be honest.,but since i decided to come back and get serious i'm already down 4lbs.so i'm on the right track.

each step is a little closer to where i want to be and to achieve.

Back to SP after a break to help take care of sick relatives. I gained weight without my daily SP check-ins so I am trying to get myself back on track. Hope I can get back to where I was and move downward on the scale. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Nice to have you on the team. Remember every journey starts with the first step. Try to make one healthy choice today and do it again tomorrow. Each small step adds up and before you know it, you will start to feel better and more motivated. Make it a great day! emoticon

Oh you are so lucky to have your grandkids so close! Your doctor should be able to suggest some appropriate exercises. Just 10 min a day to start.

If you want to be happy, desire and pursue happiness more for others than yourself, and your own well-being will take care of itself. Dedicate your weight-loss journey and the achievement of all your goals to someone else and think of them when times get tough.

There are very, very few of us that hasn't started over many times. Every pound you lose, every step you take, every glass of water you drink is making you healthier. One success at a time will get you there.

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

Hi! I'm not motivated but I know it's life or death. I begin today. One day, one meal, one hour at a time. I am usually very optimistic and have a positive outlook. I love, love, love food. I like to look at it, cook it and eat it. However....I'm not very physically active. I am 58 years old and due to cancer 7 years ago have one kidney. Not good for a diabetic (type 2). I am presently 95 lbs over the recommended weight. I live in LaGrange Kentucky (25 miles from Louisville) on a few acres of land with my husband and dog. Across the road live our son and his family (3 grandchildren). I want to be around for them all.
