I was so proud of myself when I lost my extra pounds in my late twenties. I said, "Never again will I be overweight." Then, a year and a half after I got married, I got pregnant. I became 65 lbs overweight, and despite my efforts, it seemed as if I couldn't get back to my healthy size. I lost 20 lbs initially, but it took 5 weeks to lose 1 pound, and at a certain point, I gave up. It was just Too Hard. I had no guidance other than the vague, "Exercise and watch your calories."

I was so proud of myself when I lost my extra pounds in my late twenties. I said, "Never again will I be overweight." Then, a year and a half after I got married, I got pregnant. I became 65 lbs overweight, and despite my efforts, it seemed as if I couldn't get back to my healthy size. I lost 20 lbs initially, but it took 5 weeks to lose 1 pound, and at a certain point, I gave up. It was just Too Hard. I had no guidance other than the vague, "Exercise and watch your calories."

I spent most of my thirties feeling bad inside my body. I had no idea how much it affected my moods until I joined SP and finally had some guidance as to how much I should be exercising, what my calorie/protein/carb range should be, etc.

I have found that outdoor walking is vital to my mental as well as physical health. I found calorie counting helpful, but now that I've got a good idea of what my body needs, I've eased ease up on the strict calorie counting and generally make healthy choices with suitable portions.

I have met my preliminary goals, and now I'm making new ones. I need goals so that I keep working and avoid complacency. Some people think that I lost my weight quickly. I most certainly did not. I am not a "new person." I am still me-- just healthier. I am grateful.

Thank you for the goodie! I'm not actually working on a costume right now -- it's all brain work at this point.

Thanks for the goodie! Yes, we lose a lot of sunglasses because we wear them infrequently, or that's the story. Maybe we're just the region of the country where all the absent-minded people go? Thanks again!

Thank you, I am really enjoying the cut. Short hair is more fun- only it need to be trimmed so often!
