It has been nearly 6 years and I am going to do this again. I tried to lose without the help and support of sparkpeople and I failed. My moto "never give up" is what keeps me going. Many times I have said to myself "Why? At this stage of the game, 64 yrs old, Why? I am not out to impress anyone, I am no looking for a man. Why?" Then that little voice says "never give up". Years ago, I smoked. I tried many many time to quit. I had nearly given up trying when a friend and I were talking and he said those three little word "never give up". So I continued to try and stop smoking. Finally in 1996, after nearly 30 years of smoking, I quit. I have been smoke-free for 15 yrs. So, it is time to be fat free after being fat for over 15 years. This is for me! I love me, I just do not like the way I look or feel. It is time. So thank you everyone for being here to help.
