This is me in a nutshell!! I even told my grandkids that I have an allergy to sugar! And believed I do, because if I go off and eat 1 piece of dessert, my whole attitude is ~ start over again...and it turns out to be weeks before I feel I am really on track again!! Thanks for reminding us that we are all imperfect....and need to forgive, and get back up ASAP with not 1, but 2 goals to start the momentum rolling again!
Well....here I am AGAIN! Lost 20 pounds on the HCG Diet with my naturopath and when life tragedies struck, I have done nothing but look to comfort foods. I do not feel good about myself! It is time to muster up the courage and confidence to glow again.

Hello people! Today is my first day on SP program. I have been on another program and have not moved an ounce in 6 months. I have lost 97 pounds and have about 55 pounds to go to be where I want to be -- where my Dr. wants me to be. I am a cancer survivor and this sounds just right for me. Wish me luck!
OK... the thrill of enthusiasm is lacking right now. I'm not exactly walking backwards, but you could say I'm marching in place! Not gaining, but not losing either. Currently I am not as diligent as I was at the beginning with tracking food and exercise, but I am exercising and eating with awareness, applying the good habits I've learned since joining SP. I haven't thrown all caution to the wind but I fear this can be a slippery slope because I know the eyes can not reliably judge portions accurately for long. This article is just the nudge I need right now... Thanks SP!!! Onward!
This is soooo important for me. I find it so difficult to get out of my "All or Nothing" attitude, which I know just sets me up for failure. It's hard to appreciate the small things I do when the overall picture looks so BIG. I am definitely printing this list out!
Reading health books gets me back in the mood to be healthy or watching health documentaries from Netflix. I have to be immersed in it to do it, like get books at library. Or buy a running magazine or something. It gets me more excited.
