So, here's the thing. The last blog post I wrote was in 2016, and I literally could have written it word-for-word today. It still rings completely true. Except that I weigh 258 lbs now. I'd love to weigh 222 as I did then! Isn't perspective something?

I've been dealing with some injuries and health issues the last few years and honestly feel better in my body today than I have in three years. I'm not sure why, other than that I've learned to be patient, to listen to my body, and to keep pushing it while caring for it. I've also continued to work with my doctor and therapist, and things seem to be lining up for me to be able to make improvements.

I am happy in literally every aspect of my life except for my body and the way I feel about my body. I don't care what size I am, or even what weight...I'm kinda past that. I just want to look in the mirror and recognize myself and smile at my image from time to time!

I'll be honest - I don't even know if Sparkpeople works the way it used to. I had so much success here years ago and I really like digital blogging. But this may not be the right fit anymore. I'll try it and see how it's changed. Any of you want to fill me in? Any oldtimers still around? lol emoticon

    Welcome back, Kim. In a general way, I guess we could say I'm an old-timer - at 67 years young. But, I joined just this January so I can't really comment about how things were 3 years ago and compare it to now. But I can tell you that my husband and I are having great success using CICO that Spark suggests and fitness...and that's pretty good for some old-timey old-timers. He's down 60 pounds now! I have the feeling that you're going to have the same experience too now that you're getting back into the swing of things. They have some great articles on maintenance once we get there. You will get there. It really doesn't matter how long it takes. Just as long as we get there and stay there - for life! So jump right in. We're here for you! emoticon
