I am 62, and out of shape. The struggle to maintain a healthy weight has been lifelong. Sometimes I win, sometimes the fat wins. I acknowledge that since my diagnosis of Still's disease in 2004, and the resulting onslaught of medications too many to even think about, I have not been winning as often. The resulting depression is yet another obstacle to be dealt with.
My way of dealing with all of this NOW is to take control, do all I can to get as healthy as I can and have a good life. As I acknowledge this, I am amazingly less disgruntled, and have hope! WooHoo
OK, I have purchased the book, am reading all of my tips and tools. Just do it, Toni.

    Even though I've been on SP for over a year, I haven't met my goal. Although it could be depressing at times, I always remember that I've lost some weight and kept it off. I also have to remember that I didn't gain this weight in a year so it's okay to take more than a year to get rid of it. emoticon

    You said that you need some support. Remember that you're not alone. We're not on a diet, we're trying to change our life style to being healthier. You CAN do this!!!

    This morning I wake and I thank You.
    For the gift of seeing a new day begin,
    and the energy I'll need, to make it through today.

    When the day is over and nighttime comes,
    I will thank You.
    For the gift of knowing a day has been well-spent
    and for the tranquility that comes with a darkened sky.
    Morning to night, a precious cycle.
    I am each day, grateful emoticon
