When you are on your 3rd try and you are 61, losing the weight feels EVEN BETTER as it gets HARDER to lose the weight as I age! But I have done it before and I realize NOW, for me, I HAVE to be on SP every day it's not a choice ,it's a NECCESSITY~when I wasn't on SP ,[whether wt.loss or maintenance] ,the weight kept finding me !!!! So here's a SHOUT OUT~ YAY! EIGHT are gone and look out for the next 27 pounds , I am going to burn them off!!!!
