As I was reading other people's posts today about maintaining (or loosing) weight before New Year's I started wondering just how much time we're talking about. When I looked at a calendar I discovered that from today (Saturday November 27) ... Read more

Wow ! Slow, but sure. I've now been with SP for 25 weeks, and I've gone from 149 pounds to 124 pounds. At 149 I NEVER tucked in my blouses. I had the (mistaken) thought that I could hide my stomach by having my blouses out. At... Read more
