My Status Thread is Like the Movie "Ground Hog Day"
Sunday, December 11, 2011      11 comments

I crack myself up with my thread. Seems as though it's always "Day 1 of no sugar" or "Day 2 of no caffeine." Maybe one of these days I'll get past five months of no sugar that I recently did and felt so much better w/o. Wishing all a fun d... Read more

I was so excited when I'd gotten my new elliptical a couple of years ago. However, I never bonded with it; the motion isn't comfortable for me and I don't like it. It's in my bedroom so that I can hop on it whenever I want. I haven't want... Read more

...and if you plant crab apples, no need to expect to harvest Golden Delicious. I read this in a book I'm reading last night and I really want to stop planting crab apples. This past four years' deaths/losses and assorted road bumps have u... Read more
Just When I Thought I was Going to Quit SP, Friends Pulled Me Through
Thursday, December 08, 2011      6 comments

And they didn't even know they had done that. Honestly, I go through this periodically even though I enjoy and support SP in so many ways. Sometimes I just want to quit and not be bothered due to many factors. But then a bunch of SPfriend... Read more

Wednesday, December 07, 2011      13 comments

Heard a short segment yesterday that the FDA has banned the sale of HCG, which they have been threatening to do for a long time. I researched HCG about a year ago, when this forever plateau was getting the best of me, and realized that 500 calo... Read more

Tuesday, December 06, 2011      5 comments

I know there have been pros and cons about supplements, but I believe them to be a very helpful component to my well being. I haven't been sick in years - partly due to exercise, eating fairly well, taking supplements, and yes, pure luck. ... Read more

I Snack When I'm on the SP Site
Saturday, December 03, 2011      10 comments

I noticed that, whenever I'm on this site at night, I tend to snack while reading the information that SP provides. Not a good habit to get into; good thing I'm not attending AA or NA, and I'd be tempted to do those substances while attending t... Read more

I've said this at the beginning of each month, but I really really really can't believe we are into December already. Yikes! Where has this year gone? Wishing all a great day.... Read more
Here Comes the Detox Illness (why do I put myself through this?)
Tuesday, November 29, 2011      10 comments

Even though I don't drink a lot of coffee (a small mug a day and no other caffeinated beverages), I get flu-like symptoms (including awful headache) for a few weeks (yes, weeks!) when I detox from caffeine. I've tried different methods like wea... Read more
Overeating Isn't As Rewarding As it Used To Be
Monday, November 28, 2011      7 comments

In January '12, it'll be three years on SP for me. This past October, I celebrated three years since starting my healthier lifestyle adventure. It was a few months after that when I discovered SP. I've learned a lot and come a long way. ... Read more

Yes, folks, my wish for you is a Happy Thanksgiving. And although I've learned a lot about healthy choices here at SP, I am unabashedly looking forward to enjoying yummy stuff today. That's just the way it is. Have a fun holiday. Tha... Read more
At a Point Where Exercise Doesn't Invigorate, It Tires Me
Wednesday, November 23, 2011      5 comments

I think 3 hours a day is too much. It tires me out rather than making me feel better. Wishing all a wonderful Thanksgiving.... Read more
Grazing is Best (another radio report)
Tuesday, November 22, 2011      4 comments

We constantly hear, on the news, about this or that new diet and health discovery. Last night, I heard that grazers - those who eat several times during the day - do best with weight loss. Keeping the body nourished, they explained, makes it l... Read more
