Maybe we should send Wynonna an email or letter or something and introduce her to Spark People and then she can learn what right is all about!

Congratulations on being the featured message board post this week! emoticon

congratulations, what the pill companys do is get a famous person to do there ads in hopes to get real people like us to buy there product.. it is sad,, as soon as she stops taking those pills it will all come back, or she will have to take them the rest of her life and not understand it is about eating right and getting off you duff and excercise.. I have tried them all, thinking there is a magic pill out there, guess what?? THERE ISN'T!!!!!
keep up the good work,,

What is right for one may not be for another, let's all keep that in mind before we judge another person struggling with the same issue.

I have struggled my whole life with weight problems and it is a very hard thing to absorb when someone else with the same problems judges others decisions. I am normal now but I feel other peoples pain as I have been there more than once and I offer support.

WAY TO GO!!!! That's a GREAT accomplishment! It's such a great feeling, isn't it? For me, 44 minutes of Tae Bo and a 25 minute run are pushing the "slow lane" for me LOL I LOVE that feeling of doing twice as good without even realizing it!!! Congratulations!!!!!

I know how you feel! Because I have arthritis its very difficult for me to walk, ever since I decided to use the treadmill to help me lose weight I have been steadily going faster and my legs seem to be doing better, I am now upto 2.4-2.5 (from 1.3) and I'm going faster and longer each day. Keep up the good work. You are certainly an inspiration!

Hard work and determination are the way to achieve your goals no matter how long it takes, not pills and potions. I work with so many people who try and take the easy way out and yes they lose a lot of weight quickly but once they go back to eating regular food they gain it back very quickly. We all know this we've heard the stories a million times.

I'm frustrated that with all the working out I do that i'm not losing more weight, actually I feel like i've gained but i'm willing to stick with it and not give in to gimmicks. I stay within my calorie range every day and just keep working out and eventually my body will catch up with my brain. emoticon
Way to go you have an awesome frame of mind! emoticon

Congrats to you for sure - not only on being your own best ally - but for measuring success by more than just a number on a scale!!

I find my challenge is that my mind is WAY ahead of my body on this journey.

I have been able to convince my mind that I can do the work, that I can make the commitment, and that I can survive the pain.

Unfortunately, physics is physics, and my knees don't agree with the pain concept. There seems to be a limit switch in the pain center that reminds me that although I am doing so well, that my leg strength hasn't reached the point that running on concrete with my 48 years old knees and 325# frame is just not compliant with pain-free living.

A gazelle is an exercise machine -- sort of like a ski machine. It is no/low impact and works the upper and lower body.

Thanks everyone for the encouragement!

Great for the uphill. What is a gazelle

3/26/09 1:15 A

Hey There!

It looks like you really got to the heart of the matter. First and foremost you have to be your own greatest ally. You are the first one to notice progress, and have to be the first one to spur yourself on when the tough days happen. After that, SP, food and exercise, and the support of good friends and family.But you got it! No pills are going to do the longterm work--a lifetime of healthy habits is completely your responsibility.--Ultimately you've got to be your own best "coach" in this journey. So glad you realize your progress and have taken charge of your path. Congratulations! I truly enjoyed your post.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods that be for my unconquerable soul.

Woohoo - great post! I love it when people are consistent and start noticing the improvements in speed, etc. that then translate into real world things like the moment with your daughter - and knowing that YOU are doing this the right way.

Keep this up - this is just the beginning of the great moments you'll get to experience on this adventure!

This morning, my daughter and I were running late and had to "run" to the bus stop...uphill. I was feeling pretty proud of myself at how well I was doing when my daughter yelled out, "My legs are killing me!"
Tonight, I was on my gazelle and watching TV. I looked down at the computer tracker to see how long I had been working out and noticed that my speed was above 5 miles per hour. I kept checking it every so often and it was usually between 5.2 and 5.6 mph. I was shocked...when I first started using the gazelle regularly I usually worked out at 3.8-4.4 mph. I was feeling pretty good.
Then the new Alli commercial came on (the one with Wynonna) and she said, "I'm doing it right this time". I shook my head no then held up my hands in victory and said, "I'm doing it right this time!"
Thank you SP and my SP friends for being my allies!
