    6/1/2015 7:07:28 PM, by TRUSYLVER

    Monday 2nd (yesterday) Tonight is Squat Day RANT just leaving an emoticon in the comments is hugely De-Motivating, it make me feel like all I am worth is points in a game, not leaving a comment is better than this. Even better is a considered comment or question. Beginning to thi... Read more

  • Review of Days 6 & 7 ~ 105 Day No Scale Challenge ~ 98 Days to Go!

    6/1/2015 4:34:02 PM, by DAISYBELLEKIA

    Weekends have always been a challenge for me with eating right. I've tended to either not eat much at all or to pig out on carb-heavy food. I've tried to correct this by cooking for an entire week on Sunday afternoon so that I have food ready to go from Monday through Sunday, when I'll c... Read more

  • I'm slowly overcoming my "Photophobia"...

    6/1/2015 9:44:20 AM, by TAMMAE

    I am posting two photos. This one is from Thanksgiving 2010. Looking at this really makes me realize what weight loss can do for a person not only physically but mentally. I NEVER let someone take a full body photo of myself on purpose... so as you can see I am standing by the kitchen sink wishin... Read more

  • Say goodbye to those numbers.

    6/1/2015 9:00:03 AM, by NIKKI_28

    "Today is a new day." I have said that so many times in the past... so many Mondays where I have vowed to eat better, have more self control, and lose weight. Well, so WHAT? So what if I have tried and failed and floundered and derailed. So what if I need to recommit and vow again and fi... Read more

    Here is my menu for next week.

  • Review of Day 5 ~ 105 Day No Scale Challenge ~ 100 Days to Go!

    5/30/2015 11:48:43 AM, by DAISYBELLEKIA

    I don't think I'm going to be able to fit a walk in on Fridays. That's my grocery shopping day, and by the time I get home and put away groceries, it's getting late. I think that'll be ok, though. I did a lot of thinking about how to fit in my walking and I've modified my expectations. ... Read more

  • Review of Day 4 ~ 105 Day No Scale Challenge ~ 101 Days to Go!

    5/29/2015 2:02:48 PM, by DAISYBELLEKIA

    Yesterday was good. I'm doing great with the food choices, but I make that super easy because I prep my breakfasts and lunches on Sunday afternoon so no choices are involved during the week. I also prepare some snack foods on Sunday. I almost never eat dinner because I'm full and don'... Read more

  • Review of Day 3 ~ 105 Day No Scale Challenge ~ 102 Days Left

    5/28/2015 2:24:22 PM, by DAISYBELLEKIA

    I am really beginning to see a change with how I feel after only 3 days of being back on track and eating a low carb, high fat diet, and also getting back into regular exercise. When I'm eating carbs - specifically, grains and sugars - I don't realize it, but I begin feeling bad. I don't... Read more

  • Review of Day 2 ~ 105 Day No Scale Challenge - 103 days to go!

    5/27/2015 4:14:25 PM, by DAISYBELLEKIA

    Yesterday was a good day with my food and exercise. I was still sore from my Monday workout, and felt old every time I got out of my chair. I did well with eating, and am working on getting my menu to a low carb/high fat diet (LCHF), which is also known as a ketogenic diet. Between wa... Read more

  • "The entire house is going on a diet"

    5/27/2015 8:55:59 AM, by NIKKI_28

    I have a lovely marriage of nearly 13 years. I do believe the old saying that it gets stronger over time. We are a great pair. But in fitness and healthy living, we are worlds apart. My husband was always able to maintain his high school frame and weight. A very athletic man who could eat recklessly... Read more

  • Goals are good

    5/26/2015 8:38:19 AM, by NIKKI_28

    It's been a long time since I've been on SP. I come here for resources and pop-ins once in a while, but I've not been consistent in some time and I miss the motivation it provides. I miss blogging because I've always loved to journal, and this is just the best (and free) format to do so. This ... Read more

  • Sunday - Ego Dilemma

    5/24/2015 8:40:00 AM, by TRUSYLVER

    Busy day for massage at work today. Noticed a new poster at the gym tonight, tossing up whether to stroke my ego or let it pass, as the gym has added a wall of fame for bench press and leg press, as a female lifter do I want to put the men to shame and meet the male requirements to be listed o...

  • Gardening is easier

    5/23/2015 6:31:00 PM, by MISHA_T

    One of the things that gets tough about gardening is bending over or being on all fours. When I was heavier, this was difficult to do. But with the weight loss and yoga, I was able to do my work with ease. That felt fantastic! I was even spreading mulch by hand in a downward-facing dog pose LOL! Aft... Read more

  • Fasted Deadlift

    5/22/2015 12:10:25 AM, by TRUSYLVER

    So far so good, adding intermittent fasting to my daily protocol is going well, no reduction in strength or energy levels but it does help that I was already fat adapted. I am going to do a light cardio session a little later to get rid of excess energy. Friday Training Barbell Dea... Read more

    5/19/2015 11:01:46 PM, by TRUSYLVER

    Training went ok today, In the last few days I have added IF to my daily protocol, I am no stranger to lifting heavy while fasted so no loss of strength or other adverse effects but should increase fat burn and muscle growth by taking advantage of the increase in natural growth hormone caused by the...

  • Choose Life

    5/19/2015 12:23:26 PM, by AGRACE1112

    Being positive is a choice, it doesn't just happen. It is not a feeling, it is not an ongoing state of mind. Joy is a battle, a vicious war of the soul. It is constantly under threat of defeat by the world and even those closest to us who don’t think about what they say. Faith, like joy is a ... Read more

  • Over a month of staying on plan!

    5/18/2015 8:23:46 AM, by JOGBIKEWALK

    Hello! Happy Spring :-) Hope it is lovely where you are! So, I am just making a note for myself to remind myself that as of now - I have been on track with my food for over a month! Yay! I am keeping at around 1,000 or so calories and right around 20 -30 carbs a day. I have been better about exercis... Read more

  • The Latest and Greatest :)

    5/15/2015 1:49:40 PM, by SANA0825

    It has been a little bit since my last post so I thought I'd update (myself) or anyone reading this blog. Recap... I broke up with my (then) boyfriend and moved into the city. I had too many losses in my circle this year and it's only May, but realize it's only going up from here! I joined a softb... Read more

  • Technical Difficulties

    5/15/2015 12:33:39 PM, by MISHA_T

    Grr....... I have been using a Jawbone UP since the beginning of March and I've had it synced with SP the entire time. This is the first time the info UP collects is not somehow relayed to SP. The blame lies with one of them. UP has data and it is showing up in my Pact app which is also synced ... Read more

  • Happy Accident

    5/13/2015 5:53:49 PM, by MISHA_T

    I was shopping for some basic t-shirts at Wal-Mart (cuz where else do chubby girls get basic cheap clothes?) and I accidentally bought a size too small. I tried it on at home and it fit. It surprised me so much I sobbed. Like body wracking sobs. The scale has gone down and currently, I've lost 32 lb... Read more

  • Dr: “Oh my God, you do need to lose weight.”

    5/12/2015 5:21:45 PM, by AGRACE1112

    This was the soft spoken exclamation from the endocrinologist today as she looked at the laptop which displayed my chart, which of course contained my wait. I can’t recall if “my God” was in there or if my brain added it, because my mind was pretty numb (anxiety, dr. offices) but it was a defi... Read more

  • Up and down we go!

    5/6/2015 9:32:06 PM, by MISHA_T

    I clocked in at 235 onSunday but since then have been up at 240 for three days. I feel like I haven't gotten anywhere with my body either. I'm still the same size. I know I shouldn't the scale seriously but with keto things can change rapidly so I'm checking. I don't want to lose weight too fast. ... Read more

  • Thank you

    5/6/2015 6:13:21 PM, by BIGSKYCHERIE

    I appreciate the comments on my blog and the good wishes for success. It's so cumbersome typing with one finger so I skipped a lot of info and background. I do know that 800 calories is far today low. I had lost nothing in 5 months on 1200 calories after my exercise was so limited and tried 800 to j... Read more

  • Still keeping myself real

    5/6/2015 5:02:37 PM, by NANASPLACE14716

    So it has been more than a year since I have done a blog entry, but I have done pretty good keeping on the straight and narrow of watching what I eat and trying to move more than before. Even without tracking I have managed to loose 5.4 pounds since the end of last year. I am setting my goal... Read more

  • Making a big change

    5/5/2015 2:59:40 PM, by BIGSKYCHERIE

    It's been a long time since I've posted to my blog. Much has happened. I've learned I need both hips, both knees and my left shoulder replaced. The most damaged is my left hip, which makes it impossible to put weight on my left leg. Three surgeons have refused to do the surgery unless I lose weight ... Read more
