I continue on a long, long plateau which I jut broke through in Feb. I am not looking for the ideal weight but I am looking for a weight that I can be comfortable with. My goal did have a long term date involved but I will re-set as the time comes near. So let's just say I am a work in progress and I am enjoying life to the fullest right now. I have had several set backs with family losses, my health & disabilities but I am working on doing a little pushing! Pools & water are my love but got little time there this winter. Even though I didn't do as I hoped, I made a very important goal to me and now have my sight set on a smaller and doable goal of 16#. I have spent 28 yrs in TX. & planning to return to MN. in the spring as we usually do. I now need to take care of me and lower my stress sources.
I am so thrilled to have gotten this far and hope that I can con't. to stay on a healthy path of life.

    it is hard to pick one isn't it. I actually prefer cronometer over all the rest so far, but am trying out all the rest

    Thank you for your reply. I hope you get to make that trip. I always encourage anyone who talks about visiting Nova Scotia but I know how family and life can get in the way of things we want to do.

    I have been joining Facebook groups and checking apps for recording food. There are so many that I haven't decided which one I prefer. It is the Spark blogs that I think I will miss most.

    Because SparkPeople is closing, I have been re-reading some of the blogs I wrote in earlier years. Back on Aug 1, 2010, I wrote about our vacation in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. You were one of those who made a comment. You told me that your husband was two years from retiring and you were hoping to visit the Maritimes. After I read that, I checked and you are still on SP. I am wondering if you were able to make that trip. Just curious. Now that the world is starting to open up again, I am hoping that soon I will be able to go home to NS again.
