(Last) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6161803 Be forewarned that, even with the strictest attention to your diet, your weight loss progress may not be consistent throughout the program. The 1st week or 2 your body will be losing accumulated fluids which will give you the impression that you are going full speed ahead. You are, but in a week or so that road levels off and your loss with be much less dramatic. Understand this now & you won't be discourages. <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/f461e75f-34ae-43b9-877e-61d2b...

It deals with being a long distance runner but not being a supersonic one. As we all know, it took a while for us to get to the point we are/were at when we began our journey. It frequently talks about if you gain anything you will have to start over. I am a firm believe that I won't ever start over BUT if I gain, I need to pick myself up and continue where I left off. We never should have to start over. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpe...

It isn't that far off from today's thoughts but really does emit an early 70's style.

It's a very interesting concept in dieting. This is going to be a series as it is fairly long. <BR> <BR> The Waist-Land is a pretty depressing place, littered with discarded diet plans and crisscrossed by many confusing roads that promise escape but in reality leads nowhere.
