emoticon I'm glad something I said could help someone so much. I think the reason gals like us don't approach weight loss with the same "I'm gonna do it and I'm gonna do it right, dang it!" attitude that we do others things is because it's such an emotional subject.

Weight can cause such negative feelings (shame is a big one- shame from getting so big, shame from not exercising, shame from eating badly, etc) that it robs us of some of our "can do" attitude. Once we let go of those negative feelings- all that spirit and energy comes back in a big way. At least, that how it happened with me!

Above all else- achieve excellence in everything you do.

Thank you Vidalia for saying that the way you did. I have often thought I was a girl who thought if you are going to do something you should do it right and I've done things like that...except maybe this weightloss thing and I never thought of it before you said that in your post.
After a cookie and milk at 10:00 last night and too many unhealthy snacks over the last few days you have opened my eyes.
Thank you so much.

Howdy all, I'm very excited to be here. I'm 21 years old, a full-time student in a pre-nursing program, with no kids or significant others. I'm right in the middle of losing a lot of weight (38.6 lbs down, 44.7 more lbs to go) and just making my life and myself healthier in general. The things that have helped me the most in losing weight are my iron willpower, stubborness, and a belief that if you're going to do something- you should do it right and all the way. I think SP is going to be a great tool for helping me complete my journey.
