Welcome back, Babs! I'm sort of where you are.
I knit as well, and am on the Knitters spark team, run by USMAWife. We have a great time there, so check us out.
Good luck on your journey!

Blessed be.

Welcome back, Babs20091 emoticon

I have dabbled for the past coupe of years, without getting too committed. But gradually i am becoming more and more committed, and this past year I have managed to lose some weight. OK, just 10 lbs over 6 months - but it has been fairly consistent, -ish.

I hear you on getting started again, and yes, I remember it well - every time I decide to commit to something here on SP, I remember all the previous times I've done so, and not delivered for myself, or for a team.
I enjoy watching the TV programme "Biggest Losers" - but I can never equate it with any sort of reality. I prefer the "Slowest Loser" idea here on SP, and it definitely seems to be working for me these past several months.

My joint aches are still up and down - but the more persistent I am with exercise, drinking water, and watching what I eat, the less my joints seem to annoy me. Most of the time, anyway.

It's great that you have come back to your basics, and can start again. Just make sure you have some sort of measuring and recording plans in place, so you can see your progress and not just be aware of it.

Well, it has been since 2009 that I posted anything. I checked out Biggest Losers, but thought I would come back to where I started several years ago. I am almost 300 pounds and I truly need to replace unhealthy eating with a more healthy type of hobby. I have a jewerly kit I never started and plan to start that one plus try to learn how to knit. I really need a support system, and hope to hear from those of you out there who remember what it was like to get started on a healthy hopeful begining of the rest of my life.
