I began weight loss and daily treadmill exercise on 12/29/10 and followed WW food plan until I found SP on Jan. 27. I have been using SP guidelines in planning my food since then.

For 2011, I have lost 75lbs by exercising 16,000 minutes(800 miles) and eating within my SP recommended Cal. intake 96% of the time.
For 2015, I have sustained a 65lb weight loss since Jan 2012. I continue to average 8k steps daily and at least 1k exercise points per month.
For 2016, I lost 10lbs, walked 1139 miles and exercised 304 hours.
For 2017, my weight fluctuates +,- 5 lbs. I still walk daily and expect to complete 1300 miles this year.

    Hi Tim,

    It has been a while since I stopped by just to say "hi" and see how you are doing. Glad to see you are still sparking and racking up those streaks and awards. That's the only way to achieve your goals, right? I just celebrated my 10 yr sparkversary emoticon and although I am not where I had hoped to be by now, I am certainly doing much better than if I didn't have SP and my spark friends in my life. Have a fabulous holiday weekend.

    Hi Tim! emoticon

    I replied to your private spark mail to me. I just added you as a Spark Friend. I see we both used the SPAT - that plus the 5% Challenge Community really got me started 4 years ago. I sent you also my phone number in addition to the Spark Mail. I'd love to keep in touch!

    I like using the goal of not laying down and dying until I'm actually dead and gone! emoticon

    I am tiring out my younger co-workers! Ha! It's a blast!!

    Let's keep in touch. BTW which fitbit are you using now?

    Hi Tim,

    Just checking in with you to see how you are doing. I see your doing great on the water (wish I could get in 8 cups even 1 day) and you are racking up those fitness minutes!!!
    I notice it has been almost 3 years since you have posted a blog. Surely you must have some words of wisdom to inspire the rest of us. Keep up the good work!
