I walked into a room and there were quite a few head snaps....been a loooong time since that happened. I am 56 years old and thought those days were well over. It sure felt good to be noticed.

LovingLife43,

I had to respond.

First, make sure that your son has all the books he can read. He's obviously got a way with words. :-| | 8-)

Second, congratulations on the exercise results. emoticon

When I pass a mirror my side profile is much thinner especially my thighs. I have retained my muscular glutes but decreased my thigh bulge that always made me feel self conscious.
My underwear is loose and that is fairly new. I haven't lost any significant weight but my body mass has altered. I went from 42" around my thighs to 35.5" so I feel pretty happy. Yesterday my neighbor saw me from a distance and he did not recognize me.

SP works if you use it as directed and allow a lengthy time to see the changes. I have been a work in progress since last Aug 22, 2012. It takes time to make the fat turn to muscle and reverse the body composition.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

Sweating makes me feel like a bad ass where before I would hate to sweat! I can feel my hip bones, my son told me today that if I keep getting fit he is going to have to chase the men away, and I have a new found love of water!

I get complimented on my clothes more often... I am wearing the same kind of stuff, I think it's just their way of telling me they've noticed I look good without specifically mentioning my weight.

Hey, if they didn't say anything when I put the weight on, they don't need to say it now that I'm losing it. I appreciate the kindness both ways.

I'm having to buy smaller sized clothes more often--on past weight-loss efforts, I'd only have to get new clothes every four-five months; now, it's every 6-8 weeks.

I just started an exercise-a-day calendar and saw this morning's item: do 10 burpees. My first thought was, "ah, I'm too out of shape for those, I'll just do jumping jacks" but then I realized: I probably *can* do them now. And, what do you know, I did.

I can fit into shorts that I couldn't a 2 weeks ago. I'm working out harder with weights or in cardio sessions. I'm still losing weight almost every week even though I haven't been counting my calories from when I started almost 2 months ago. I have more energy and in a better mood.

I look forward to getting a good sweat going too. I also like the process of a workout like I never have before. A nice warm up in preparation of pushing for a great workout, and finally feeling the calm that comes over me during a nice cool down and stretch.

I honestly, HONESTLY don't mind sweating now. In fact, I look forward to it every day.

Coming from the woman who didn't want to walk across the room if it meant breaking into the tiniest sweat, this is a true miracle.

I used to hate running, and sucked at it.
Now I actually look forward to my night runs because it has gotten a bit easier to run longer.
The key to this progress was slow and steady practice.
My knees don't burn as bad, and I feel... lighter when I run now.

Never ever thought this would happen to me!

My energy level has sky rocketed. Guys are noticing me because of the 41LBS currently lose. I LOVE KICKBOXING!!

Rather than aiming for being perfect, just aim to be little bit better today than you were yesterday.

Energy level. It's so easy to just run around and it wasn't at all before.

Blouses fit my arms with room to spare! No more too-tight sleeves.

When I walk uphill I don't get winded! Squats and lunges have made me stronger!
