Hello, My name is Teresa I have been on SP for awhile, I lost 30 lbs in 2009 on SP and gained it all back plus some. Time for a new beginning. Any help, is good help. Feel free to leave any comments on my page or my vlogs. Welcome to my journey!

On June 30 2018 I started WW when two of my sisters came to visit me. I decided to go with them and join. It has been the BEST journey I have ever taken! Do I cheat? Yep, every week! I let myself have a "cheat meal" every weekend. When I say a cheat meal, I mean something I won't normally eat. Not a full pizza, or 3000 calories etc. If I want Pizza, I will have it. And I still count every last bite. I have tracked my food on WW app every single day since I started the program. (today is Feb 4 2019 and still going strong). For the first 6 months I did NO exercise at all. I had no interest in it an I didn't even like it lol Well come January, I decided I needed to start doing some. I noticed I was very flabby and I don't want it even worse as I keep losing. So I started WATP the beginning of January. And at the end, I decided to add core/muscle toning also. I don't "love" exercising, I would be lying if I told you I did lol But I do feel so much better since starting it. Now it is challenging me. I started the V Shred and WOW, talk about a work out! LOL When I hit my first 50 lb loss, I will then post my before and afters. I so wanted to hit my goal before I reached 50, well that didn't happen lol I will be 54 in March :) So now I am shooting for 55 to be TOTALLY at goal! And I WILL DO IT! I am that confidant in the program I am now doing. It works and I LOVE going to the meetings every Sat. Accountability is a huge thing for weight loss. Get some some where if you are struggling, you wont be sorry!

You learn what you do:
If you worry a lot, then day after day you are learning how to worry even better. If you think about doing something a lot, then you are learning how to think about doing it. Every moment you are happy, you are learning how to be even happier. Every time you act, you are learning how to take an action even better. What is it that you've been learning today? What is it that you want to learn tomorrow?

~Don't Quit ~
When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
and forget all about being healthy and thin.
So What! You went over your calories a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.
It's telling yourself, "You've done great up till now.
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow."
It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.
To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,
If you summon the will to get back in the race.
But, often the struggle's, when losing the grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.
And learn too late when the damage is done,
that the race wasn't over...they still could have won.
Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
but facing each challenge will help you grow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it...But don't you quit!

My Goals:
MY GOAL BY: Just lose this weigh, as much as possible, still being able to enjoy food, without giving everything up and binging. I can do this! This first Month has been proved to ME, and I AM the only person who matters in this, MY Journey!

One day at a time is all I can do.

My Program:
Learning a new way to eat, a new plan for life. WW is the way I found how to deal with changing my life and eating!

Personal Information:
Welcome to my journey! :-) September 1 2009 was day 1 on SP! Still here and still the struggle continues, but I am here and that's what matters. NEVER GIVE UP THE FIGHT!!!

Other Information:
If you lose track of yourself along the way, I would suggest you go and read the success stories on SP. This is what is getting ME back on track!
