Read below for current status. I gained a lot of my weight back because I left SP. Lesson Learned: Don't Leave SP!!

This was a note for when I was working my program in my fifties & did really well: I've been here before under another profile. I've achieved tremendous success. I used to weigh over 218. Now I weigh 168. At some point I'll share my other profile with you so you can see that journey. It was not easy. It was worthwhile.

Yes, it is not a path that is easy, losing weight for me. It is a path full of pain that leads to joy. It is the only path I choose to be on. God is joyful. There are times when He has a great sense of humor. Up above the clouds there is only joy. Let's do this thing!

Update 7/9/16: I am back after weighing in at just slightly over 180. Today I went to the gym and did a mile on the elliptical. I'm not going to get back to 218. Not going back there. I can do this. The good thing is that I KNOW HOW to do it because of SP!!

Update 12/19/2020: I've lost 6 pounds and I've met the goal of walking 8,000 steps per day. I've figured out that it's OK to take the day off the day after I travel home from FFL. I can have a rest day on that day. I have my water pretty much down. Next I will add a goal of 10 minutes a day every day in MCO (Orlando) for the Elliptical.
