How many times have I said this before??? But here I am again and hoping THIS time is the last! I need to do it for me.....for better health. I'm at the age now where everything I do will be helpful and benefit me.....

UPDATE September 27, 2012 Joining the 5% challenge -- am a beautiful butterfly!! I am going to make a change in my life this time -- I have to!!
Since I"m a lover of quotes - here are a few about Butterflies

"The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.� Rabindranath Tagore

"I embrace emerging experience, I participate in discovery, I am a butterfly. I am not a butterfly collector. I want the experience of the butterfly." William Stafford

�The caterpillar does all the work, but the butterfly gets all the publicity.�
~~George Carlin

So here I go -- I AM, for now, a catepillar....doing all the work so that when I become that butterfly -- I will SHOUT it from the rooftops!!!!

Updated August 17, 2012 My oh my the above words were my FIRST on SP way back in 2007 -- 5 years later and I've lost the weight (at least almost 40 lb. of it) and gained 22 of them back...will I ever learn??? Obviously not So some changes are underway for meme102 aka Lynn --- stay tuned!!!

UPDATED Sept 13, 2011
How many times does one have to start over before they 'get it'???? Same words above now apply as they did back in 2010 as they did in 2007. And, here we are now in 2011 and I'm STILL saying them. Disappointed, disgusted, frustrated, hurt, angry, furious, are just some of the words that come to mind when I think of it. But what good is that? I'm here -- now -- and that's all that matters. I can remember in my 40s thinking - I've GOT to do something about this weight b/f I reach 50, then when I was in my 50s I said GOT go do something about this weight b/f I reach -- well you get the idea! Well, now I am in my 60s and still trying....I've said in blogs - I'm TIRED of this being an issue! So here's my challenge to MYSELF --- what are you going to do differently this time than all the other times???? Pause....pause......pause.....pause......p
ause.....pause.....the only answer that comes to mind?? STICK WITH IT!
UPDATE May 2, 2010
The above words were written the very first time I joined SP. They are NOW being REPEATED because I've fallen away and am having to pull myself up by the bootstraps to get myself back on first babystep was to sign in to SP more consistently - I've now done that for 8 days. I've just started tracking each meal consistently -- up til now it had been haphazard. I'm also going to re-do my goals to be tiny little babysteps that are for me only and that are doable ....or at least they'd better be. This background pictures represents me beginning this journey again --- from the start. I will weigh in tomorrow and will post that weight whatever it is.....this is for ME ----- AGAIN!

    MEME IT HAS BEEN SINCE OCTOBER THE 18TH SINCE I HAD SURGERY. I know I couldn't of been able to put the weight on the bad knee at first.
    He came again today and told me to ice it. I did and took some tylenol and he said it won't hurt much at all tomorrow.
    Have the week end off. I did a lot of walking today. I met some friends for lunch today and then went to Walgreen's to do a little shopping so did quite a bit of walking.
    Have a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

    Thinking of you tonight, Lynn and I thought I would say hello. I got the Spark Activity Tracker and it is really motivating me to move. I am still working at staying on track but it is so hard to stay completely away from the darn sugar. Not giving up, just trying to have more good days than bad ones. Hope you are finally able to focus on you now. Baby steps, one day at a time and NEVER GIVE UP!!! ((HUGS))....Martha
