11/14/09 In the past when focusing on me & getting healthy gets lost, my weight goes up. It goes up to the highest weight & adds another 10 or 20 pounds to that record. But now I'm supported by SparkPeople. And I've made friends who care & who also know that SP will guide us to health. So, yes I've gained. But it's time to find me again! So now I'm back!

5/26/09 Today is one year of continuous SparkPeople involvement. I've lost some & regained some. So I am 31 pounds lighter. No giving up! I've also learned what is successful for me, and will hopefully deal with busy season at the office more successfully next year.
And I have new friends who support me on this journey!

To be honest, I expected to lose slowly. But I didn't expect to struggle as much as I did during busy season at work. The big success is that I'm still here! And 31 pounds smaller!

5/26/08 Now I'm fifty, but the rest is still true. Time to start again.

"Another month and I'll be 49. In the past I've successfully lost weight & successfully gained it back plus. Why am I trying again? I still want to be healthier & look better. Why have I failed in the past? Lack of support, and lack of focus to plan meals & shop & cook.
What's different this time? Maybe joining here will give me some structure, focus, and online buddies!"
