Why is SP such a secret?
Friday, August 31, 2007      1 comments

I watch TV, read magazines, surf the net - One article in one magazine mentioned SP. I know all about weight loss surgery and the latest diet phenomenon. They’re on all the talk shows and morning news shows. But no SP. I’m not forgetting that t... Read more
My first month at SP
Friday, August 31, 2007      4 comments

Today is the last day of August and I've lost 10.5 lbs. Which is more than I’ve lost in who knows how many years. And all I had to buy was groceries!... Read more
Lunch today
Thursday, August 30, 2007      3 comments

I bought some tilapia on sale but didn’t read the box. Although the fish is gutted, turns out it’s whole – heads and all. Being a big city girl (Detroit), I’ve no idea what to do. But I've got a good knife, so I tackle the fish for lunch today a... Read more
I'm keeping it on the DL
Wednesday, August 29, 2007      7 comments

A friend who did not know that I was trying, noticed that I'd lost some weight. If he had known, I wouldn't have believed that he could actually tell, I would have suspected that he was just trying to be encouraging. I've only told my daughter, ... Read more
I peeked at the scale
Monday, August 27, 2007      3 comments

I’m usually pretty good at not weighing until Saturday but sometimes… So I took a peek this morning. I’m going to make it - I’m going to have a 10-pound weight loss for this month. I don’t want to jump the gun because anything can happen but if ... Read more
Why was I so hungry today?
Sunday, August 26, 2007      2 comments

Cannot figure out why I was so hungry today. Breakfast didn't satisfy me, I had a huge lunch and was hungry again an hour later, but fortunately I was fully prepared with fresh fruit and vegetables in my lunch bag to get me through the day. ... Read more
Weigh in day
Saturday, August 25, 2007      1 comments

No progress from last week but at least no gain. I had a few days where I needed groceries. During that time I didn't eat high carb junk but I didn't have fresh vegetables and things that help me stay on plan. I had pork sausage in the house b... Read more
Pity parties need to be short & sweet
Tuesday, August 21, 2007      4 comments

SP is the best place on Earth. I have occassion to say that at least once a week. As I read message boards and blogs I am continually motivated and inspired. A fellow member's major pity party made me realize that I'd been having one of my ow... Read more
Who invented strength training anyway?
Sunday, August 19, 2007      3 comments

My God, I already have to eat the right foods, in the right proportions; get cardio every day; drink enough water. Isn' t that enough? Apparently, not if I want the whole shebang. I can half step and get half results, which ain't good enough thi... Read more
I'm on track, but need to move
Saturday, August 18, 2007      0 comments

2 lbs down from last week. That's good and keeps me on track to lose 10 for the month. Because I seem to be fine with my food plan and using the tracker, I'm going focus on cardio and strength training for the next couple of weeks. Now, what ... Read more
I'll need new thought patterns.
Friday, August 17, 2007      4 comments

Tomorrow is weigh in day and I hope, celebration day. I've been considering how to reward myself if I've lost at least 3 lbs. Naturally, my first thought was food. But I need new habits and I may as well start making them now. So, not being us... Read more
Some fine tuning
Thursday, August 16, 2007      1 comments

I did a little tweaking today - setting myself up for success. I added some teams that are pretty active, rewrote my introduction to act as a mission statement that I'll see every day and changed my username to reflect my focus. ... Read more
Blue Funk day
Wednesday, August 15, 2007      1 comments

All day I had this odd, sad, down in the dumps feeling. I didn't feel like walking, so I didn't, which made me feel worse. Was I resorting back to old habits, was I going to give up, if I didn't walk today, would I tomorrow or was this just the ... Read more
Renewed
Monday, August 13, 2007      1 comments

I reflected for a short time today, due to a thread, on what I hate about being fat. The things that are always in the back of my mind that subconsciously, sometimes consciously, affect the things I do and decisions I make. Before I found SP, I... Read more
I actually SEE the truth.
Saturday, August 11, 2007      1 comments

I'm still learning and still being amazed. I started using the nutrition tracker yesterday and it is like the truth presented to you in no uncertain terms, and you can no longer delude or down right lie to yourself. It does count if I use more ... Read more
