The numbers show I've been mostly on track this week, but I "feel" heavy. Why is that??? I'm afraid to get on the scale....I'll put it off until at least Monday, maybe longer. Having guests for dinner tonight, so I've planned a Greek dinne... Read more

Just talking to myself. As I said a few days ago, this is a crazy, hectic week and I'm having a hard time staying focused, and when that happens I go over the maximum calories a bit...typically 50 - 110 or so a day. ... Read more

A great day today. I stayed within my nutrition goals -- well, I had a little too much fiber (3 gr) and that's one area I usually struggle with. Otherwise, I stayed on track all day, exercised for 40 minutes cardio and weights, drank my fluids a... Read more
Getting Into the Program.....
Monday, August 10, 2009      1 comments

I haven't been following the program here since I joined months ago, and I was doing WW instead. Somehow that just doesn't work for me. I need something even more structured I think. I started using SP this past week, and LOVE the way it tracks... Read more
