Hi, New year, updated plan! I will be changing my goals to reflect the wt loss already done and the new goals. I still want to lose another 40 lbs. The 76 # lost over the 2 years is gone for good, and I do plan to lose the last 40 this year! Start WT 11/07 was 265#, present WT 1/10 189 Lbs (76 lost)~goal WT 149. Once I reach that I may go for another 20#. after my husband was diagnosed with Lymphoma, David lost his battle with cancer July 24, 2008, I decided I needed to get healthier and fit to live longer for my children and grandchildren. I have 5 children and 11 grandchildren. I had been having a hard time losing weight but love SP as they have been a major help both with weight loss and motivation. I decided its time to lose some more weight and thought this will be a good place to do that! Having a place to go everyday will keep me motivated and on target. I started losing weight again when I hit 265, lost 15 lbs over 6 months then found SP, now I am below 200# for the first time in nearly 10 years. SP is the best for learning healthy ways and motivation.

    Welcome to SP!!!

    I was passing by your place and the beautiful kitty caught my eye - I used to have cats, but now I have a St. Bernard and Beagle, and both not cat friendly!!

    I'm sorry that life is throwing a rough patch at you, but you have some to the right place to seek out support and motivation to start you on your way to a healthier lifestyle!!

    My best advice is to post often and browse around - there are a lot of good folks here fighting the same battles you are!!!

    Stop by my place anytime...
