I am blogging for the first time in over 5 months. I have fallen off and on the wagon too many times to count. I thought that if I at least blog once a week it will help me with accountability of why I am joining this Biggest Loser Challenge that my daughter and niece have kept trying to get me to join. I have to give a lot to both SassyMommie (daughter) and ArizonaRose (niece) they have continued to push me and think of me while dealing with their own weight loss. Its hard in my life to find support from those around me but they continue to call, sparks and keep trying to light a fire underneath me. I feel that I am at a time and place that the fire is lit and really starting to burn. So with that I joined Weight Watchers and joined this Fantastic Fall Fabulous and Fit Biggest Loser Challenge. I am still nervous about starting this and again falling off and getting back into bad habits. But I do know that I have to start somewhere and sometime if not I could get more bad health issues then what I have now. My goal is to lose about 50-60 pounds and stay healthy. I want to watch my grandchildren grow up and I have the oldest one graduating in 3 more years, so I want to be around. Well Orange Team ready, set to go. GO ORANGE TEAM GO

    We all have to start over OFTEN! My suggestion is this, do not overwhelm yourself! Start small with things you can stick with and then move from there adding one small babystep at a time, you will get there.

    Good for you, sweetie, for giving yourself a fresh new start! That's what we all are doing. At least I am. I really want to stay on track this time. With the awesome team support that our Orange team has, I know we can get somewhere. Let's do this together. You're not alone on this. Sounds like we have the same goals. I too want to be healthier so that I can participate in my grandchildren's lives as best as possible! I want to be an active, fun granny!

    Well good for you for making another start. Never stop starting. Many of us on sp love ArizonaRose to pieces for her caring for us and constantly checking in on us and encouraging us.....I'm sure it must be wonderful to have her in the family.
    Keep trying, when things go wrong.....pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start again. Each dent is worth a million, and in time you'll reach your goal.
