I have been on SP for two years now and I LOVE it! This is the best tool I have ever used to lose weight. It is the perfect combination of tracking, motivation, and social community that I need to actually get fit and healthy. I have learned from all of you how to love my body and quit that body shaming negative feedback loop that I have been playing for years. I have learned that our bodies are never going to Vogue perfect, so why not enjoy what you got!

I have also learned the power of patience. Over the past two years I have lost 25 years. That is amazing. It took a lot of time to learn how to incorporate exercise and mindful eating habits into my life. By taking the time and really sinking into these habits I know I will keep them for the rest of my life. NO MORE REBOUNDS! No more diets.

Right now I'm focusing on balance. I love eating and most importantly I love eating GOOD food. But I don't need to eat well ALL of the time. I'll have a salad for lunch if it means I get to pig out for dinner. Our bodies are like a house and we have to take care of it. Sometimes we have a party, but the next morning it has to be cleaned up. Slip ups, cheats, and deception are bound to happen. Tomorrow is another day, don't get hung up on the bad stuff. This is definitely the hardest part. I am still learning how to do it.

For fitness I am focusing on attending at least two Fitmob classes per week. Fitmob is an amazing group fitness program that is offered in San Francisco. They have classes all over the city in different types of locations and the teachers are AMAZING. It is so easy to squeeze in a class during lunch or after work. They are offering all new types of classes but my favorite right now is Zumba.

With these two things in mind I know I will reach my goal of 141 lbs. It seems a long way off from now but I'll get there.

    Thanks for the blog comment. I know I am probably overcriticizing myself. I'll just keep working out and wear that bikini with confidence. You're absolutely right that it's the confidence that people will see, but there's that little subconscious part of myself that will keep doubting.

    I am also starting at 185 lbs and have 45 lbs to lose over 2013! My goal is 2 lbs a week, to be at my goal weight by my birthday, September 13! I see that you've already lost 15 lbs and I just wanted to say congratulations! I am only down 6 lbs in 10 days, but hey I'll take it! Way to go on staying accountable, that's always the hardest part!

    Are you Dutch? What is living in the Netherlands like? What made you decide to to school in the Netherlands?! My father is from Holland, and I am half Dutch but don't know a lot about my heritage! One of my goals is to learn some traditional Dutch recipes and cook them for my boyfriend! I've heard that Holland is extremely beautiful!

    Hey I just wanted to let you know Friday I may be late on the weigh in! I got a job offer from the bank in town and I have to travel Friday morning to another town for training. I'm not sure when I'll be home. The town is 1 and half hours away. And they said training is all day. But I should be able to track it Friday night! Or on a lunch break...not sure if it'll be with them and don't want to get on my phone while around them.

    Thank you!
