One-Year Anniversary with SP!!

Monday, May 28, 2012

Today is my one-year anniversary with SP! This past year has been very educating and eye-opening. I have made many new friends and have surrounded myself with great support groups!! I love every team I have joined. The challenges, the support, and the great comradery. I have learned that even though I may have bad days, go off my food plan, or not exercise for a few days, it doesn't mean I am done. It just means I have to pick myself up and move forward.
I also have a lot to be thankful for from this past year with SP! I have learned about streaks, the importance of water and fruits & vegetables every day, and making time for me! I have included my DH so that meals are no longer just meat & potatoes, but more clean/green/portion-controlled
. I have included my doctor, who is always looking for good information to pass onto his other patients. My co-workers, also, to make changes in the snack-attacks we have at work--moving high-calorie/high-sugar treats to only Fridays--all other days have to be healthy snacks. We all stopped feeling sluggish by 2pm everyday!
SP is a great group, a great website, and a great tool, that does not have to cost money, or great deal of time. Everything about this program is designed to work with the individual with group support! How fabulous is that? From someone who has "tried them all" SP is huge for successful healthful life changes.
I have some work to do to update my profile and send goodies to all my supportive friends. But, for now, I have to take my daughter for a healthy lunch (all she wants is cheese curds), but we may have to compromise.
