The motivational and accountability aspect of SP is what makes this such a superior site in my opinion. Plus the support and friendships here are bar none from what I've seen thus far :)
I have tried all the gimmicks, pills etc and I think it comes down to changing the way you live rather than looking for a quick fix. I have changed my outlook and I think that is the biggest difference I've noticed...I no longer want a "quick fix" that I can't continue throughout my life. I want to learn to eat, live and be healthy and happy and I think to achieve that, the change has to come from me.
Today was not a great day...a lot of unforeseen circumstances happened and I wasn't able to get to the gym, eat at normal times or consistently and then we had a New Years Party this evening. Now normally my response would be to say "well there goes the day" and spend the rest of the night eating and feeling sorry for myself. Not tonight! Tonight I came home and signed into SP....although I felt too bloated to work out I started reading, posting and planning for tomorrow. That is the difference SP has already made in my life and I can't wait to see what 2013 and SP have to bring...going to be a good year, I can feel it!
