Hello? Is this thing on?

Find out more about me at my blog: http://girlonabicycle.blogspot.com/

Hi guys! I joined SP back in 2007 and was pretty successful. I had quit smoking and lost 30 lbs. Too successful, actually. I got complacent with my progress and started thinking I didn't "need" this place anymore. I felt great, I looked great..I was fine!

Except, I still needed this place. It took a few years, but eventually the weight crept right back on & I picked up smoking again. Stupid.

Hi guys! I joined SP back in 2007 and was pretty successful. I had quit smoking and lost 30 lbs. Too successful, actually. I got complacent with my progress and started thinking I didn't "need" this place anymore. I felt great, I looked great..I was fine!

Except, I still needed this place. It took a few years, but eventually the weight crept right back on & I picked up smoking again. Stupid.

Anyway, I ditched the smokes for good over 2 years ago, but the weight seems to have stuck. So now I'd like to tackle that.

It's not even about my size/weight--I just felt awful. I don't like feeling tired or sick or like a lumbering hulk. So, I'm going to change that.

I plan on giving myself a challenge each month, and keeping a daily goals list. I already know that counting calories leads to madness with me, so I will only track WHAT I eat, not HOW MUCH and stick to reasonable portions.

I don't have a goal date in mind: it will happen, when it happens. And since this is a lifestyle change--it doesn't matter what the "end date" is, does it?

Ooooh that sounds fantastic! I absolutely love spicy food so I will definitely be tossing some red pepper flakes in the mix when I make your suggestion, yum! Sadly, I went to the local grocery store and they didn't even carry it-- how sad. I'm on the hunt for it, thank you!

I can't imagine a pizza with no cheese! I was curious about it though, so thanks for the advice!!

One day I will perfect making my own crust, but I'm still wary of my cooking skills!
