I started out top weight 245 but that was when I actually got on a scale. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia almost 20 years ago. Over the years I've learned that I do so much better when I eat organic foods and I haven't eaten red meat in years I have been gradually working more raw foods, vegetables and fruit into my diet. I avoid drive through resturants like the plague.

Take this first week to familiarize yourself with the tools here. Once you get used to using them, it becomes easier to use them even when you are busy. Personally, I spent my first week learning to use the tools, and just tracking everything I was already eating and doing for exercise. It gave me a baseline to work from. It also gave me a chance to really decide what my goals were, and how to get there.

This site can only provide the support and the tools to reach these goals. You need to put the hard work in. Personally, I end up kicking my own butt every day. Feel free to check out my blogs to see how I kick my butt out the door to get my fitness in. I can tell you, once I am finished with my exercise for the day, I feel great. No more I should do this and I should do that. Instead, I feel accomplished, and able to relax and enjoy the rest of my day.

I'm living in Saskatchewan too, in the South east corner.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

Hello everyone! My name is Meisha, I'm 22, and live in Saskatchewan, Canada. I'm 5'5" and currently weigh 155lbs. Last year I lost 40lbs to weigh in at 141lbs, but since last summer with working in a bar and not keeping an eye on my diet and exercise, it's been fluctuating at higher weights. My goal is to lose this stubborn weight and keep it off, with an end goal of 130lbs. I have trouble motivating myself to workout sometimes. I also have a bad tendency to eat healthily during the day, and then on top of my healthy food eat junk later at night while out with friends. Anyways, I've used other online weight loss sites before and they've helped a bit, and I'm giving SP a try. I work in a bar so I have to get back into my shorty shorts! As far as being a vegetarian goes, I've been a lacto-ovo vegetarian since I was 15, so it'll be 8 years in September. I'm pretty proud of myself for that, and credit that lifestyle with being the factor that kept me from being much more significantly overweight.
