    Yes, it did. But one cannot outrun one's body, I believe. If you stick to the plan, it will work. It just takes time.

    As for myself, I am my own worst enemy. It really comes down to slaying one's dragons once and for all. The ones who can really do that (and there are few), eventually graduate from SP because they no longer need it. They "get it" on all fronts. If that makes sense.

    Good luck!

    Calorie counting is ALWAYS the ticket. The SP tracker is worth its weight in gold.

    Good luck!

    Yep, counting calories works best for me too. I have so many of my favorite foods in SP, that it's not that difficult to track. Plus, I like having everything in one place. Just works for me. I'm not only counting calories but trying to make healthier choices within those calories. I also accept that processed carbs and I don't get along, so I don't eat any after lunch. For whatever reason it works for me. You know the old adage "Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper?" I flip-flop breakfast (like a prince) and lunch (a king of small nation) and eat dinner like a pauper. lol It really has made a huge difference. Again, don't know why. Oh, I'm also back to one cheat meal (not a whole day like I used to) a week. What a life saver! All week when I'm tempted to cheat a little here or there, I ask myself if it's worth giving up Mexican food for the cheat meal (or fried shrimp and tater tots--or whatever it is I'm promising myself that week). Usually, whatever it is, isn't worth it. Phew! It's tough, but it's paying off.

    And congrats to you for losing 6 pounds! Woot woot! emoticon emoticon

    I'm so happy we're back on here at basically the same time. I was missing you. I look forward to cheering you on. emoticon

    Hiiiiiiii! How are you? Thank you so much for commenting. I'm back, indeed. I do so much better when I track on SP. I have about 50 more pounds to lose. I'm taking it slowly (though I've lost 9 pounds in 3 weeks, but that's because I have so much to lose and it's the beginning of the journey and the pounds always fall off a little easier in the beginning). How have you been? I believe you had your 1 year anniversary last month?

    So glad to see you around!

    Helloooooooo! So glad to hear from you. Did you ever get my email that I sent before I went to the UK? I never heard back and wasn't going to nag...but now I'll nag. LOL

    Strategy is to follow (mostly) Bob Harper's Jumpstart to Skinny for at least 3 weeks (It's a jumpstart and not meant to be lilfelong). Then try to follow the ideas, but with more calories. I have so much to lose in 9 weeks. Time got away from me. Ugh.

    What about you? Feel free to send email too.

    I've missed you!
