I. too, need some accountability right now. I started SP and went on to lose 17 pounds and then things fell apart. I have gained 5.5 pounds back and am deathly afraid I am going to keep sliding.
i am wondering if the proposal came through?
As for the Hoodia, I have it and used it a few different days. It certainly keeps you from thinking about food; in fact, most days I would forget to have my regular morning snack and lunch, resulting in a case of weak jitters when I realized I needed to eat. Of course, at that point, I just grabbed food without thining. When I purchased this at the locat Vitamin World, the store manager, who had lost 80 pounds, also suggested some CLA morning and evening.
What do you think? Should we kick each other in the behind and require regular check ins?
Lucky Nurse ... to the Spark Class for 26 Oct - 1 Nov. Congratulations on your almost proposal. I hope you get into that dream wedding dress!
As for your question about supplements ... much to my chagrin I must admit I have tried the hoodia. I had terrible side effects from it to include the stinkiest gas I have even had the misfortune of passing. It was so bad one day I called in sick to work because I was too embarrassed to be in public. It was absolutely awful. That was a couple of years ago before I decided to lose weight the right way, without pills or potions. I've never tried the acai berry nor do I know much about it. All I can say is do a lot of research before you try anything. Good luck in whatever decision you make.
As for accountability ... I found that the more people I made aware of my goals the more people I had helping me. I made sure all my family, friends and co-workers knew I was determined to lose weight and get healthy so they would not try to feed me things that weren't on my menu plan and they would choose places that served things I could eat when we went out to dinner on Friday nights.
May you always have Love to Share, Health to Spare, and Friends that Care!

So much for my resolution! I am having no motivation whatsoever to start this ... and I am expecting a proposal sometime soon and would love to fit into my dream wedding dress! I need someone to keep me accountable! And am certainly willing to do the same for another member. Also, what do you guys know about supplements with green tea/hoodia and acai berry?
