Getting Fit and Healthy

I have been on SP for six months now and I LOVE it! This is the best tool I have ever used to lose weight. It has also helped me to achieve other goals, like washing my face every morning and night. My other favorite thing about SP is cheering everyone on. It is amazing to me how badly we (us women and sometimes men) feel about our body image. Six months ago I never would have posted a photo of me in a bathing suit, but through SP I have learned that our bodies are never going to Vogue perfect, ...
I have been on SP for six months now and I LOVE it! This is the best tool I have ever used to lose weight. It has also helped me to achieve other goals, like washing my face every morning and night. My other favorite thing about SP is cheering everyone on. It is amazing to me how badly we (us women and sometimes men) feel about our body image. Six months ago I never would have posted a photo of me in a bathing suit, but through SP I have learned that our bodies are never going to Vogue perfect, so why not enjoy what you got! Cheering you on is what keeps me going.

I like to keep the mentality that this is a life's journey. One piece of cake today will be felt down the road. It is important to balance it out, maybe not today but try tomorrow. Our bodies are like a house and we should keep them clean. Sometimes we have a party, but the next morning it has to be cleaned up. This is my mentality. Slip ups, cheats, and deception are bound to happen. Tomorrow is another day, don't get hung up on the bad stuff. This is definitely the hardest part. I am still learning how to do it.

Currently I do not have a scale so I am taking measurements every week and posting photos to track the differences in my body. I will start weighing in again in August. Right now I really enjoy the freedom from the scale. For fitness I prefer to do classes but since I am not currently a member of a gym, I have been doing workout videos including, p90x, yoga, and Sean T. So far so good!

Good luck in your journey! I know that sounds cheesy but its true.

Thanks for the blog comment. I know I am probably overcriticizing myself. I'll just keep working out and wear that bikini with confidence. You're absolutely right that it's the confidence that people will see, but there's that little subconscious part of myself that will keep doubting.

I am also starting at 185 lbs and have 45 lbs to lose over 2013! My goal is 2 lbs a week, to be at my goal weight by my birthday, September 13! I see that you've already lost 15 lbs and I just wanted to say congratulations! I am only down 6 lbs in 10 days, but hey I'll take it! Way to go on staying accountable, that's always the hardest part!

Are you Dutch? What is living in the Netherlands like? What made you decide to to school in the Netherlands?! My father is from Holland, and I am half Dutch but don't know a lot about my heritage! One of my goals is to learn some traditional Dutch recipes and cook them for my boyfriend! I've heard that Holland is extremely beautiful!

Hey I just wanted to let you know Friday I may be late on the weigh in! I got a job offer from the bank in town and I have to travel Friday morning to another town for training. I'm not sure when I'll be home. The town is 1 and half hours away. And they said training is all day. But I should be able to track it Friday night! Or on a lunch break...not sure if it'll be with them and don't want to get on my phone while around them.

Thank you!
