    Your are a success and your renewed determination will keep you a success. Do something totally different than your standard routine. Go out dancing, play some basketball, rollerskate, bowling, do something you haven't done since you were a kid just for the fun of it. Let loose. If you can, take someone along. Break out of routine it will charge your up so you can continue on. You sound like it is not just a plateau about losing but a rut from doing the same thing over and over again. Put on some crazy music and dance like you have never danced before. You are unique and special and you should celebrate that.

    I think we all struggle and succeed, we just have to focus on the success more then our struggles.
    I am starting again after losing 170lb, and I have gained 50lb. back! I want so badly to feel good and be a healthier person. It just seems so easy to get back into old habits and then feel like you'll never make it. Looking at all the success here, I believe I can make it!
    Thank you all. You are so inspiring.
    Best to us all,

    Isn't it funny that when we actually tell the truth on ourselves about our crazy thoughts and resulting feelings that we somehow get the needed energy to remove the power the lies have on us. Thanks for reminding me to pay attention to my thoughts and feelings and take the wind out of the sails of sabotage! Keep going! I am amazed at your 100 lbs of progress!

    Great Post K!
    I look forward to logging on to SP everyday and I love the support we give to one another! I mean people don't have to be on your team in order to give or get support from a SP member Sometimes it is the support we get that helps us to get over that mountain that is in our way!
    Thank you for a great post!

    Make sure you are feeding your brain...I find that If I get plenty of low fat protein...(like chicken breasts...and eggs...salmon...tuna) and good healthy fats...like olive oil and vinegar salad dressing...my cravings go down...I think it is because these foods feed my brain in a way that even good carbs do not...

    I do believe in eating healthy whole grains...fruits and veggies too...but somehow when I start tilting more of my calories to these foods I crave not so good carbs more...

    Therefore...I find that it's very important for me to feed my brain...so it works with me...not against me...

    Good luck to you...you are really doing awesome...Glad there was someone to help you through when you needed it. That's the beauty of sp!!

    You can do it. And if you can lose 100 pounds and I know that's not easy you can lose whatever amount you want. I hope I can be like you to lose 100 pounds soon. And you look great. So keep doing what you do. And eat healthy and buy nothing but healthy foods for your house and you will be able to succeed. Anything is possible when you give it your all.

    For some reason I can hear your previous video words too...I hope the site can fix this problem soon. WOW... a hundred pounds and still going! The secret is to keep picking yourself up, isn't it? Thanks for motivating me not to give up.
