Freshman Fifteen...or Thirty...

The new year has inspired me to stop my half-dieting and fully commit to losing weight and living a healthier life. I hope to use SP to initially lose weight and then stick around to maintain a healthy lifestyle. I find all SP members inspirational and enjoy reading the stories of real people trying to improve their health and lives instead of reading tips from celebrities with professional trainers and chefs to help them stay thin. Thanks for reading and please contact me if you would like ...

I love the new shoes! Thank you so much!! I've actually been looking at a pair just like them as my reward for when I reach my goal weight!

I actually have a couple pairs but my favorite are my Nike shox. I don't know how severe your feet are, but my shox have enough of an arch in them that I don't have to put removeables in when I run. I also have a pair of Asics which also have a slight arch and are very comfortable for running in.

Oh thank you! That is such a huge compliment. I stuck to 1200 calories a day. I ate 4 times a day. breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a snack. I basically ate what I wanted because I have a family and could not make myself something different to eat. So I basically did portion control and sp helped me do that. If you have ever heard of Nutri-System, that is exactly what that is as well. For five months though, I did cut out ranch dressing (which I love) and cheese. I did cardio four days a week. I started out power walking for 30 minutes and worked my way up to 60 minutes. I would burn about 600 calories. I went from 3 mph to 4mph and always changed to incline. That really helps your butt and legs. That is about it. I really stuck to logging my food into sp everyday though. Good Luck. If you have any other questions let me know. This program worked for me and I truely believe it can work for everyone. emoticon

Thanks for reading my blog and leaving a comment today! I actually have flat feet too! When I buy shoes for running I have to specially order arches for my feet to help my run so I don't develop shin splints "quicker" than other people. I've noticed I don't thud when I run too.

Hope you're having a great day!
