Been back a while but haven't blogged until now.

I have been reading all my blogs from 5 to 6 years ago. All the promises I made to myself got ignored by me. I stopped logging on and let myself go AGAIN! I don't know why I do this to myself. Then because I have maintained some special friendships with ladies I met here I once again became inspired by them. So last January after a very scary Dr. appointment where I was told I was heads toward being diabetic I once again resolved to take better care of myself. I was extremely concerned because over my lifetime and my many attempts to lose weight I always found I had success doing something different the first time but never the second. But I logged back on, put in my weigh, 40 pounds gained of the 80 I lost originally, and had SP calculate my calorie amounts. And I gave it my best try. Well happily I was wronge this time and SP has helped me lose the 40 pounds again. Well almost, I am 4 pounds away. I am able to wear all my size 10 and many size 8 clothes that have been moved to the back of my closet. Today I even really stepped out of my comfort zone and wore a pair of size 8 skinny jeans, lol.
My last blood work was excellent with no evidence of the impending diabetics, I am feeling so much better about myself. If I have to be 66, which I am, I need to be the best I can. Plus I have a 21/2 year old grandson that I get to spend a lot of time with and he needs a healthy MiMi to play with. So this time I am not making any great promises about keeping this weight off again but I am going to try my best to do that. And I am so thankful for SP because it works for me......twice!
