I'll just go into Columbine's kitchen while she's waiting in the car for me to leave!

My weight has been yo-yo-ing all my adult life! And I'm really tired of it! I want to walk into a room and not feel self-conscious about my weight. After a lifetime of selecting clothes to conceal myself, I want to wear pretty clothes, try new activities & grab more gusto!

Update: I've been with SP for almost 5 yr. Lost the weight in 6 months. Rode the roller coaster of up & down the scale. Finally I'm ignoring the scale , making good food choices & exercising at least 30 min. 6 days/week. Period.

Most important lesson learned: The bad habits that made me fat the first time (and the 128th time!) will make me fat again. This must be a permanent change in my life.


2013: After DH got a new knee & I returned to all my bad habits, I sat around & regained nearly all the weight I had lost.

Started over 3 weeks ago and am now on Day 20 of a streak of at least 30 min. of exercise 6 days/week. Feel better! Clothes fit better!

It's working...it always does. SP is the greatest! Just do it...and it feels soo great!

    Thanks for the SparkGoodie and the encouraging words. I was in Denver last weekend. I love it out there. Your story sounds a lot like mine. You'll make it. I know you will. Ann

    Hi Nancy - what I did was go to the page that says "My Recent Posts" & that's where I found the thread. Also I signed up to get an e-mail when someone responds to the thread, so that's another way.

    Hey there! I saw your post on the 1949 page - that's where I am, but interestingly I also am in Colorado -

    Where are you from? I am close to Cedaredge (which is about 50 miles from Grand Junction & 15ish from Delta).

    I'm getting close to my goal - well sort of close - I still have about 5 lbs. to go, but I seem to be slow, but steady so I'm not worried.
