WELCOME IDAREU! You are right, you have no excuses! It's below zero up here and I'm headed out to cross country ski right after lunch!

Welcome! I hope you enjoy this group!

Hi Everyone! I just joined the group and wish to do more outdoor activities! I can really describe myself as a couch potato and need to get in to action. I live in the island of Puerto Rico in the caribbean so we have a beautiful weather most of the times. So there are no excuses! Hope to find encouragement in this group!

Lizzy WELCOME WELCOME WELCOME!!! If you enjoy doing stuff outside, this is a great team! I understand what it's like having 4-5 months of winter. Except up here it's 9 months of winter, so I do whatever I can outside!

find foods that work with YOUR body chemistry.

i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 34 pounds .

i cook 4 large portabella mushrooms sliced, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 4 large onions sliced, 2 large green peppers, 3 cans green beans, 1 can rutabaga and 5 sliced chicken sausages. find foods that work with your chemistry. i created this meal on my own. i can't seem to loose weight if i eat any grain products. so one day i experimented.

it makes enough for at least 4 days, three meals a day. total cost is 12 dollars. i buy the mushrooms and chicken at sams club. sounds crazy but it taste good and most importantly it's working. i'm not hungry . if i feel the urge to cheat i go get a fork full of my mixture. i chew very slowly as to enjoy my meal.

i have added a small banana and grapes for my snacks and to be a fix for my sweet tooth.

you can add other foods into your menu. just know what works with your body chemistry.

I have gone from 198 to 164 pounds. i can now fit into a size 14 comfortably. i feel so much better. think of carrying a 2 year old around your waist every minute of every day. no i am not done. on the obese chart i have gone from being obese to just plain fat. my goal is to drop another 22 pounds. then i will be happy, healthy and never allow myself to get in this condition again.

one might say eating the same food every day would get boring. not true. when you look in the mirror and can see the difference it's worth

i went to the doctor. for the first time in a long time i was not ashamed to get on the scale. i did not have to get beet red because doctor said i was over weight. it felt GREAT.

Good Morning!
I got a personal invitation sometime ago to join this team and I am just now getting around to joining! :-)

I have been on SP since 2009. I got to my goal weight in June 2009. After that it slowly crept back, if you are interested in my story stop by my page. It happens to a lot of people so I won't bore you with the details here.

I have a renewed spark to get back to my goal weight and stay there this time! Most of my exercise is outdoors or on my treadmill in the basement because though I love to be outdoors I DO NOT like the cold and I live in northern Indiana where it is winter 4-5 months of the year.

It i has been awhile since I have joined a new team so I am looking forward to meeting new people! emoticon
