Before I started SP I weighed 232 and felt all of my 63 year plus another 10. Once I acknowledged that there were no alternatives except changing my eating habits and working out made it so much easier. Positive reinforcement came as my health improved. It is good to rely on others, but most critical to me is that I have to feel good about waht I am doing. Getting into healthy routines for exercising and eating correctly is very important. My goal was to be 175 lbs. It took about a ten months to get there. Several weeks ago I weighed myself and was astounded that I was under 170. I also do a lot of fishing off the surf and that dropped my weight even more. I have increased my calory intake, reduced my cardiovascular from 60 to 45 minutes and have slowly gained a couple of pounds. I am determined to stay in the 175 lb range.
Oh, and one other important point is that I found out is that it is okay to screw up every once in a while. It is no big deal, I just had to move on.
