Jan. 26, 2017-----I'm not saying anything important here...no excuses, & no promises. So...we'll see what happens now.
The message below is from when I first joined Sparkpeople....10 years ago!! Geeeez!! I had lost 35 lbs (went from size 18 jeans to size 12)....but I lost my "spark", & I've gained it all back. Such a sad statement to have to make. :-(
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ June 18, 2007
I've always "wanted" to lose the weight--but I guess, wanting & doing are 2 completely different things! WANTING is really just WISHING--DOING involves ACTION--something I haven't been willing to do until now. I'm thru with whining that I WANT to lose the fat I've been packing around. I'm ready to DO THE ACTION to achieve the results. I'm tired of never feeling comfortable in my clothes. I refuse to buy bigger sizes. I hate shopping for new clothes, because I go home defeated & depressed. My body is showing the results of poor choices. Health wise, if I keep going on this road to destruction, I'm headed for lots of problems that I do not want to deal with. It's time for a change--everything points in that direction.

My Motivational Quote: Those who believe they can do something are probably right, and so are those who believe they can't!!

    Hey, Grumpy! Nice job on your page! I loved reading what you said and got some motivation out of it, as well! Your goal of a "healthy weight", as you put it, is definitely one to strive for and one that will help you avoid the health issues you've been concerned about. I'm your cheerleader - you can do it!!!!! Woot Woot!!! Love ya much!
