I woke up today feeling mad at myself about the day before, when a great day and diet turned into one step away from all out binging. There is bad food all around me, and I can't do anything about it-it's not mine. I grew up in an area of MN whe... Read more

Does anyone else crave sugar? I'm not just talking in sweets, but literally the granulated sugar you put on your cereal? I can eat normal and healthy all day. Around 9:30 at night, I start to have sugar cravings. It's ridiculous. I do get e... Read more

I've been on SP now about a month. The first couple weeks went great until my knee started bothering me. Although I stopped the workouts that the PT had me doing per their request, it didn't help. It's been getting really sore and swollen-the sa... Read more

Since I joined SP a couple weeks ago, I've been doing well with my workouts and eating and have managed to lose ten pounds, even though I have to go at a much slower pace then I normally would. Considering that the only two things I've been allo... Read more

Once upon a time, I was a very active person. I loved to play tennis and basketball. Kickboxing was an obsession. I even enjoyed some cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and just being outside enjoying the benefits that Minnesota has to offer. ... Read more
