I did it once and I can do it again ! 130# off and kept off for 3 years. 80# back on now due to poor coping skills with stress. This time it stays off. I don't want to die young or be in pain until I die old. I want energy and I deserve to be happy, energetic, and fit ! I've always taken care of others, now I take care of myself. NO MORE GUILT !!! I have choices.

Update: I had actually gained 147 # from my laziness. I had been at 177# for 3 years and still felt fat and out of control, poor self esteem. October 2013 I started again because I was unwilling to totally give up on myself. I discovered I really do love myself and I am worth so much more than what I think food & laziness were giving me.

10/5/2015 Update: I have finally arrived to Onederland. 199.3# Now on to goal ! 2-15-07 spark anniversary

Started 2/15/07, rejoined 11/17/2013. I work as a nurse, no stress there...I love my family and my pets. I have no children. I am 52 yrs old and tired of being in pain so I am choosing to change my life for the better, to make positive choices and to be thankful for all things in my life good or bad as it will teach me in the end.

Other Information:
Love to RV. I had a 1988 class A Fleetwood pacearrow. Mom used to joke that it is so delaminated, she expects to look in her rearview mirror some day to see a class A convertible. LOL. Work full time, so camping is weekends and one 2 week trip yearly. I have 1 dog and roomie has 2, all eskimo's. Also like to bike but have to adjust handles again as wrists go numb fast.

    My hubby is actually new to shopping and we are making some rules. I don't shop in hot weather in the truck with no A/C and won't be doing it again. I actually hope he doesn't get into shopping too much as I can't stand it when he comes and his doctor doesn't really want him getting out much at all. Especially around people who won't wear masks, social distance, and don't take vaccines. He can't even go back to work due to that. Glad you liked my blog. I write a lot to let off steam. I hate griping so I try to turn it into something funny. Love you too!

    I totally agree. A lot of their experts were a little long in the tooth after so many years and you have to stay current in your field. Nurses are required to if they are working. I found that other professions back then were often not that way when I was a head nurse and supervisor. Experts were giving out outmoded advice.
