Hello from Costa Rica!

I've found three constants in my journey to losing weight:
1. It's all up to you, nobody else.
2. Calories in HAVE to be less than calories out.
3. You have to suffer.

Thanks to the 2014 Summer 5% Challenge, I lost 5.4 pounds! And to the 2014 Fall 5% Challenge, I lost 4.6 pounds more for a total of 10 lbs. Actually I reached my goal weight of 128 lbs. I was unable to get the motivation (a big push) necessary to embrace and enjoy ...

I was unable to get the motivation (a big push) necessary to embrace and enjoy a complete change in my lifestyle seriously, until I got into these challenges. I was always procrastinating the big start. I am extremely happy I've found invaluable friends along this lifelong journey here at SP.

Just stopping by to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and share a Thanksgiving poem by an unknown source:



TWAS THE NIGHT OF THANKSGIVING,
BUT I JUST COULDN'T SLEEP.
I TRIED COUNTING BACKWARDS,
I TRIED COUNTING SHEEP.

THE LEFTOVERS BECKONED -
THE DARK MEAT AND WHITE,
BUT I FOUGHT THE TEMPTATION
WITH ALL OF MY MIGHT.

TOSSING AND TURNING WITH ANTICIPATION,
THE THOUGHT OF A SNACK BECAME INFATUATION.
SO, I RACED TO THE KITCHEN, FLUNG OPEN THE DOOR,
AND GAZED AT THE FRIDGE, FULL OF GOODIES GALORE.
GOBBLED UP TURKEY AND BUTTERED POTATOES,
PICKLES AND CARROTS, BEANS AND TOMATOES.

I FELT MYSELF SWELLING SO PLUMP AND SO ROUND,
'TIL ALL OF A SUDDEN, I ROSE OFF THE GROUND.
I CRASHED THROUGH THE CEILING, FLOATING INTO THE SKY,
WITH A MOUTHFUL OF PUDDING AND A HANDFUL OF PIE.
BUT, I MANAGED TO YELL AS I SOARED PAST THE TREES....
HAPPY EATING TO ALL - PASS THE CRANBERRIES, PLEASE.

MAY YOUR STUFFING BE TASTY,
MAY YOUR TURKEY BE PLUMP.
MAY YOUR POTATOES 'N GRAVY HAVE NARY A LUMP.
MAY YOUR YAMS BE DELICIOUS.
MAY YOUR PIES TAKE THE PRIZE,
MAY YOUR THANKSGIVING DINNER STAY OFF OF YOUR THIGHS!!


HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL
