I am absolutely AMAZED! I have been trying to lose this AWFUL, HORRIBLE RELENTLESS, 40 pounds now for Four long tiring years! I have tried everything, and YES I have lost...DISHONESTLY! I have taken Thermogenics, and starved and YES I have lost, about seven pounds or so, but the minute I stop, I gained every pound right back! I have done the NO carb diet, YES, I lost, about the same amount of weight! Yep you guessed it, I gain it all right back! I have even gone to my doctor and did protein shakes, why of course I lost, I even lost almost 12 pounds, all just to gain it right back! Yes, Yes, I know, ALL wrong! It did not matter I wanted this monkey off my back and I wanted it off NOW! On Friday, reluctantly, I decided to give SP a try. I was skeptical to say the least, but heck I had nothing to lose but the monkey! I said to my husband, I think I will just start logging on my food and see what happens! So I did just that, with my own menus, it amazed me to be able to see it all in black and white at the end of the day! A visual of sorts, you see it, its subject to change! Between that, the love of the Lord, my family, a little exercise, and all of the encouragement from friends here at SP, I sit here four days later and three pounds lighter...I am doing it, I really, am doing this, only this time I am doing things HONESTLY! I am inspired, I can finally see the forest thru the trees, I am encouraged, therefore MY SPIRIT HAS BEEN RENEWED!
