    4/20/2018 8:25:40 AM, by GET2BEFIT

    Look what I found in my pantry! Would anyone use it in a salad? Or for something else? Today my goal is a non-scale goal: slow down! No rush going anywhere (including work!)

  • Hmm, getting there - Fancy Dress Project

    4/19/2018 7:49:48 AM, by RAWCOOKIE

    I've tacked all the pieces together and tried it on - I'm putting myself out there showing you these! OMG! This was the first photo I took.

    4/19/2018 5:03:24 AM, by SPARKY070476

    Yesterday I had my divorce finalization hearing. It went fairly smoothly (20 minutes and done), but I have a bunch of loose ends to tie up: refinance my house to pay off my ex, he needs to move out once he's got the money, close the joint checking (he never used it) and open my own, submit the QDRO...

    4/18/2018 6:52:57 AM, by WINACHST

    This morning as I was tracking my food in chronometer, I decided to add my weight for these past few weeks just so I could see the graph. Since December, 2016 I am down 9 pounds.

    4/17/2018 12:10:10 PM, by RAWCOOKIE

    4/17/2018 7:04:17 AM, by ADDISONLJONES

    I’m not a hoarder or a shopaholic. Before I go any further, I need to establish that right up front. I’m neither of those things, but I admit, I CAN understand the impulse. See, I do love to shop. But it’s not about spending money or being materialistic or wanting to keep up with some mys... Read more

I spend most of my time alone—reading, writing, working. My idea of a “fun” night is curling up with a book and a glass of wine, not ... Read more

    3/29/2018 10:42:37 AM, by WANNABFITNHLTHY

    So far so good :) Done with my second (out of three) runs for week 1 of the Couch to 5K program. Successfully started tracking calories and staying in the range I need to. The water weight has come off. I plan to be aggressive, but I'm still resolute that this will be a lifestyle change, on... Read more

  • Went to a gym instead of home workout

    3/29/2018 7:24:03 AM, by WINACHST

    I went to a gym yesterday and was able to run on a LifeFitness treadmill. It must be a higher end treadmill, much more than my cheap treadmill I have at home. Also, what a difference in the speed. 4 mph was like a 5 mph on my home treadmill. What a blow to my ego. Here I thought I was doing so ... Read more

  • Truth Tales: Month Three

    3/28/2018 6:30:38 PM, by JENNIFERQUINLAN

    Last month (month two on SP) , I hit a pretty low point. I'd gained back some of the weight I'd lost since I'd started in January 2018 and threw a bit of a pity party for myself. (You can find that post here:

    I'm not sure that I carried out this manouvre in the most gracious way - but when I got into work this morning I was like the Wicked Witch of the West! 424 I grabbed the almost-full black plastic rubbish sack from one of the kitchens, scooped up the carrier bag full of chocolate and dumped...

  • The Italian Hot Dog

    3/27/2018 6:29:29 AM, by ADDISONLJONES

    I had my first Italian hot dog the other night, and I just have one question to ask: How drunk was the person who came up with THAT idea? I can almost hear the tipsy thought process behind it: First, let’s take a giant piece of bread that would actually be better suited for an extra-large ... Read more

    3/27/2018 3:00:25 AM, by JENNIFERQUINLAN

    About a month ago I had a bit of a melt down and in the throws of that loss of confidence posted my first body photo (it's in the photos section if you're curious). It feels like ages since then--I'm in a completely different frame of mind, and in a much more positive place mentally. Well, sin... Read more

  • Day One: Monday 3/26/2018

    3/26/2018 7:16:24 PM, by NEEBREW

    Today I start the journey to getting my groove back. I'm 25 pounds overweight, tired all the time, and I don't like the way I look or feel. South Beach worked wonderfully for me before and I maintained good habits for years, so I'm starting down that path again. I went to the grocery this even... Read more
