Hi, New year, updated plan! I will be changing my goals to reflect the wt loss already done and the new goals. I still want to lose another 40 lbs. The 76 # lost over the 2 years is gone for good, and I do plan to lose the last 40 this year! Start WT 11/07 was 265#, present WT 1/10 189 Lbs (76 lost)~goal WT 149. Once I reach that I may go for another 20#. after my husband was diagnosed with Lymphoma, David lost his battle with cancer July 24, 2008, I decided I needed to get healthier and fit to live longer for my children and grandchildren. I have 5 children and 11 grandchildren. I had been having a hard time losing weight but love SP as they have been a major help both with weight loss and motivation. I decided its time to lose some more weight and thought this will be a good place to do that! Having a place to go everyday will keep me motivated and on target. I started losing weight again when I hit 265, lost 15 lbs over 6 months then found SP, now I am below 200# for the first time in nearly 10 years. SP is the best for learning healthy ways and motivation.

    Hey how are you doing? I am done with the landscape except for putting down some mulch on the beds. So it can rain now.
    I am going home to the East side tomorrow for some sun, so I can keep my tan! Hope you can come for a visit soon since I moved to your neck of the woods. Maybe we can work something out when I get home. Chat soon. Sandy

    Thanks for taking the time to see how the flowers have grown in my flower garden. I have been at the beach house since I planted the garden. I guess the old saying is true leave things alone and they will grow, I have done nothing but make sure the sprinklers are on and the soaker hose is turned on. Mother nature has done the rest for me. Have a wonderful week. Sandy

    Feel better, hey it has been sunny here all day. Maybe we live in a different state?? No really the sun has been out and the wind always blows here but not really cold. I have been cleaning the kitchen and putting away things that belong to the owner so I can put out my things in the kitchen. I have the pantry almost finished and the bedroom and office done.
    Feel better because the Easter Bunny will be here on Sunday.
