SP Success?

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Oh, yeah! Someone was whining about not enough success on SP. Just hang in there and open your eyes.

I had exercise induced asthma when I started SP. I wheezed all night if I had done even a little moderate exercise during the day. It's hard to go to sleep when you wheeze. After a month on SP I threw away the inhaler. No more wheezing. And I can do more exercise. No more excuses there!

Weight loss? Yup! After eight months on SP I've lost nearly 20% of my original body weight [3 pounds to go]. That's 45 pounds actually lost so far!!!!!!!!! That's amazing.

Inches lost. Oh, yeah. I have a totally new [but limited] wardrobe because none of the clothes that I wore when I started still fit. I'm not buying a lot of clothes because I'm still losing. I'm not at my goal yet, but I know how to get there. Stay with SP!

Hooray for us! Reminder: I didn't get fat overnight, I won't get slender overnight either. We can do it!

    great job on your loss! In this world of instant gratification it's hard to see things in the distant future, especially if you've never seen them before (what will I look like at 30 and a size 12? I have no idea!) Don't let the sourpusses drag you down. You are a success!
