In 2008 after failing at it for 10 years, I lost 29 lb with SP in a couple of months & without suffering. I can't believe I found this program. Overeaters Anonymous helped me stop binges permanently, but lately I was eating like a thin person and doing little exercise. Natural propensity to put on, middle age and menopause didn't help. In the difficult path of maintaining and trying to get fitter, while dealing with chronic back and neck problems and disliking exercise. I'm a sparkie for life & will stick to my maintenance range no matter what. It's always the Xmas photo that throws me. The above was written 6 years ago (2008) and I have been on and off SP for that long, most of the time using the food tracker. I am now worried enough to commit to weight loss and fitness. I tried to accept myself at this weight but I just can't. I would be happy with a 10lb weightloss even if it means to still be above my healthy weight. I'm 61 and have to be on a no-sugar, hi-fiber diet due to ongoing bacterial gut treatment that has hugely helped me get over fibromyalgia. Lets see what can be achieved.

My Goals:
I want to eat simply and healthy but not be deprived of everything. I also need to keep my 15 min power walk on the treadmill at least 4 times a week, pilates once a week, no excuses. Lasting goal: do something about loosing it each time I go 2kg (or 4lb) over my goal weight. Keep off sugar, ongoing goal for the last 20 years, successful most of the time.

My Program:
More active in SP to seriously get moving and to loose 10lb.

Personal Information:
Originally from Argentina, an Aussie citizen for 27 years. Living in the Gold Coast Hinterland, a semi-rural area with town water and Broadband. 30 mins drive to the beach. Self-Employed and out of the rat race of the corporate world in Sydney. Worked as an engineer once upon a time.

Other Information:
Read a lot of literature, love non-mainstream movies & totally addicted to my computer. My husband and I own a Boarding Cat Motel.

    Hi Claudia,
    Sorry I never got the sms or I would have replied. I am back over 80kg but working on it. Still travelling back and forth between home and Cairns & home and Townsville. Got home again yesterday from Cairns.
    At least the Doc's are trying to work out something with my back.
    I am smiling again and not letting the weight depress me.
    I hope you and Bryce are well.
    love Syl
