I am not really a blog person and always dislike English in school. One of my challenges wanted me to journal about why for weight lost. I am more into getting healthy and stronger.
1. to be able to move around in my eighty's
2. to stay off meds
3. maintain a healthy blood sugar and blood pressure
4. to do task easily
5. to have better endurance
6. to be around for my kids and grand kids
7. to avoid using all my future retirement in medical bills
8. to enjoy looking in the mirror more
9. to stop disliking my shadow fit clothes appropriate for my height
11. to inspire other differently to lose weight than the way I do now make my husband look better with me at his side (he never complains and tell me how nice I look)
13. for when others that have not seen me in a long time, not to think first thing "Wow, she really gain weight."
14. I want people to think, "she is really in great shape for her age" "she looks so much better now"
15 to do more than walk/jog in a 5K
16. for my boss not to see me as a potential health risk

    Lets make 2018 the best year yet. Sp is the way to do it. You have made a wise choice to use it.

    We find it amazing how great our results can be by following the suggestions of SP. Including the consumption of water. I know I have tried everything for 35 years and it wasn't until I did SP and starting HONESTLY monitoring everything I put in my mouth and drinking 100 OZ of water a day that I got my results started. Even retired I lost 35 lbs in 2017 doing SP and the last 20 lbs will be off next year. It is encouraging to not walk past a window and not feel nauseous as what I saw.
    I have tried everything for 30 years and always yo-yo'd back and forth. Since Jan 1 there has been over 30 lbs lost.
    It all begins someplace and you just started there. Lets make 2018 the best year yet.
