Six weeks with SP has made a huge difference in my life. I have gone from barely being able to get out of bed without stretching first, and missing an average of 5 days a month at work due to my fibromyalgia, to sore muscles that are actually exercise related and being able to run. Yes! I can actually run now. And I did not miss a day of work for the complete month of June.
The ability to move about my daily life and keeping the fibro in check is the major goal in my life but due to SP, I have also lost weight, am eating healthier, and drinking plenty of water. I am still not sleeping right, but then that does come with fibro and the medication.
I have decreased the medication that I use from seven to two. I think clearer, andI remember simple things in my daily life. Due to the decrease in cognitive abilities with fibro, I am aware that this will not disappear completely, but I am happy with the results this far.
Six weeks ago, I picked up a magazine which made mention of the SP site, and I am now glad that I have joined and am living the results of the changes made due to that article. Thank you SP!

When you've eaten too much and you can't write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
and forget all about being healthy and thin.
So What! You went over your points a bit,
It's your next move that counts...So don't you quit!
It's a moment of truth, it's an attitude change.
It's learning the skills to get back in your range.
It's telling yourself, "You've done great up till now.
You can take on this challenge and beat it somehow."
It's part of your journey toward reaching your goal.
You're still gonna make it, just stay in control.
To stumble and fall is not a disgrace,
if you summon the will to get back in the race.
But, often the struggler's, when loosing their grip,
Just throw in the towel and continue to slip.
And learn too late when the damage is done,
that the race wasn't over...they still could have won.
Lifestyle change can be awkward and slow,
but facing each challenge will help you grow.
Success is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint in a cloud of doubt.
When you're pushing to the brink, just refuse to submit,
If you bite it, you write it....But don't you quit!

Burnt double the calories for the week than expected or aimed at. Calories, carbs, fats, and protein were all maintained. Seeing some muscle definition, not much. Looking forward to seeing a lot more. Lost 4 lb which is more than I was aiming at. Would like to see that stay at a safe slow pace of 2 lb per week. I have a whole wardrobe of clothes I'm waiting to get into. Can't wait till I can wear my "skinny clothes". Even though I know I am a long way from it.
As far as being organized....... I've cleaned out one closet, straightened up my home office, and have all the laundry out of the way. I am still working on my magazine rack. I put another coat on it. One more coat and then I can add my stencils.
