136 lbs gone-renewing effort

Monday, September 15, 2008

I came to SP in June 06. Have since lost 165 lbs---most of that in that first year. Last Oct, I lost my "oomph"---and regained 30 of that---and have gone up and down within that 30 alllll year! But still have 136 gone...
I've not lost my desire-but my hope has waivered a time or two-but not my resolve TO KEEP MY TAIL HERE and KEEP ON TRYING!...but alas---I know as Master Yoda said---"Do or do not-there IS no "try", I am back to "DO" again...
I've returned to my near daily except the weekend hour each day water aerobics, plus another half hour or so swimming...and doing my best to keep my food in line-that is still a struggle-but one I'm determined to accomplish as I'm also joining a "Biggest Loser Challenge" here on SP....and want soooo much to have a GOOD LOSS to finish out this year in Dec. I'm planning for another 30 gone---hopefully more. I secretly hope for as much as 50. Last week, returning to this goal, I lost seven and a half pounds.
I've had some significant depression going on still---but hope to just plow thru and get some good success to help lift me to a higher plain.
Sooooo....I'm off to the WC! (Wellness Center)

    Sherry, good for you for picking yourself up again & embarking on a new challenge. I'm trying to get some momentum going again myself. Let's be kind to ourselves by eating well today & enjoying every bite, OK?

    Cheers to you!

    I think you've done really well since you first started and you're learning moderation in all things. Thank you for your encouragement even though you don't know me.
