I reached my goal of losing 20 pounds in 2020. In fact, I was able to lose 44 pounds. Yeah!! Celebrate!! Then I lapsed and gained back 17 pounds. Just like I did in 2019. This is a pattern I'd like to break. I'd be at goal weight if I'd quit sabotaging myself.

Looking forward - not back. My goal is to lose 21 pounds in 2021 and keep them off.

My goal for 2020 is to lose 20 pounds. In 2019, I lost 30 pounds before falling off the wagon. I gained back 11 pounds, but that means I had a 19 pound loss for the year. That's a Win. Imagine where I could be in 5 years if I lost 20 pounds a year. I'd be at my goal of losing 100 pounds. Would I like to lose all the weight sooner? Of course, but if it takes me 5 years, I'd still have all the weight gone. So, I'm going to focus on losing that first 20 pounds.

"The more consistent you are, the quicker you will lose weight." ~Linda Spangle

"When done correctly, healthy meals can taste even better than full-fat restaurant meals." I've always known this... now it's time to get cooking and find healthy recipes.

Remember the opening song on the Mary Tyler Moor show (1999)? "You can have the town, why don't you take it. You're going to make it after all." Hat thrown in the air. That's my theme song for 2017.

Focusing on good habits: Fresh and healthy food, accompanied by vigorous exercise, water, sleep, fresh air, and FUN!!

    Hello my friend! Thanks for thinking of me. I cannot see the benefit of being on SP if I'm not actively trying to loose weight. My head is just too far out of the game right now. I'm hoping against all hope the I'll get my head in the game soon. I hope you are doing well. Have a great day and week!

    Nope the challenge is over. I didn't win. LOL IRS has come out and said we dont have to amend the returns, they are going to fix them. I suppose after they fix them, I will fix them the correct way. I think you need to find time for yourself my dear friend. Sometimes that is the hardest thing in the world.

    I can't wait till I have my surgery on the 29th. I want my life back I am praying this fixes it for good and I don't have the same issue. Back pain is truly miserable!
