How can so much time go by?

Sunday, May 04, 2008

I have been an SP member for over a year now. It took nearly nine months to really get myself MOVING...which finally happened thanks to a challenge back in Sept of last yr. I feel really good about that.

On the flip side though, I have managed to GAIN weight over this yr. Some of that may be attributed to the hormonal changes that take place at this point in a woman's life...BUT, that is no excuse. I tried to recommit last Sept. but some medical issues got in the way. That is under control now, I think, so I need to start again. I don't want the pounds to be edging up as I get older as I hear that they can/do.

For right now, I would like to get ten pounds off and/or get down one dress size so I can wear clothing I have in my closet.

    Taking a detour is a really good way of looking at it.

    I think we've failed when we stop thinking about it and accepting it as 'just the way we are'. Becoming apathetic to our bodies is dangerous territory. You my friend are conscious each day that you need to do something for you... .for your health and you're doing it. Kuddos to you.

    Your still sticking to it thats part of the battle!! We all have detours in life because of so many things and most of the time beyond our control. You haven't given up or anything just took a little detour! emoticon

    YOU can do it!
