It's been a while.....

Sunday, May 20, 2012

That is an understatement if ever I uttered one. As is common with people who are trying to lose weight, I slacked off and gained back about 15 pounds over a couple of years. In the past several weeks, I have cleaned up my eating habits and returned to the gym to increase my activity level, even if minimally. I have lost about 8.5 pounds, so I am half way back to where I was at my lowest. Unfortunately, my lowest is not nearly what would be my healthiest weight.... I have a looooooong way to go to get to that!

My amazing best friend is joining a "biggest loser" challenge in his area and has inspired me to step it up a bit. Having an accountability partner is one of the most effective ways to keep me motivated. We are planning to share this journey toward better health and support each other in better nutrition and increased physical activity. I am hoping he will join me here at SP... Either way, I know this tool has worked for me in the past and I am finally back for another round. :)

    Hey! Hi again! It's good to see you back! I know what you mean about slacking off. I've gained about 20 lbs back over the last year and now I'm struggling to get it back off.

    How's the rest of your life going? Hope you'll stop by and catch up!
