I was told about sp as I was leaving the flatbelly online program. I signed up in Sept, but didn't begin with this site until Nov. I lost what I thought was my last 12 lbs, but once I began using sp, I decided to lose another five lbs, which will put me at 140 lbs; what my doctor wanted me to weigh in the first place, since I am 5'8". I thought getting to that weight was unrealistic three yrs ago, but now it is within my reach. I started out at 175 lbs.
I have learned alot over the past three yrs from different diets that I tried; lost 10 lbs w/ south beach, 10 lbs w/ 3-2-1 from prevention and 12 more using prevention's flatbelly diet. I took what I liked from each one and still incorporate it into my daily meal plans. One of the reasons in signing up here is that interacting on boards and tracking my meals was highly motivating for me and successful in my wt loss. Once I reach my goal, I plan on staying here for maintenance. I DO NOT want to regain! I am looking forward to sharing and interacting with others on sp.

My Program:
I aim to eat healthily every day and allow myself one 'cheat' meal per wk (within reason:). I exercise several times per wk. I need to get back to interacting and sharing on boards, because this was successful for me on the flatbelly online program.

    I'm excited too! I love the progress that you've documented. The motivation you used before I'm sure will serve you well for these last few. I'm on my 2nd day of the jumpstart and looking forward to progress! emoticon

    Glad you were able to get back on track and lose those holiday pounds!!

    I'm sticking to my plan and seeing a slow but steady weight loss. I've been measuring my body fat percentage with a calipers and have been seeing a downward trend there, too, though not as fast as I'd like it to go!

    Keep up the good work! You're doing great!
