I've had a bit of success losing 29 pounds since November of last year, but I'm stuck where I am because I'm having a hard time cutting back, or eliminating snack foods. I know I need to eat more fruits and vegetables, but I can't seem to force... Read more

Ever since I started dancing again my progress has been slowed by problems with my feet. I have bunions with bone spurs growing on both big toes, plus the irritation is causing something called sesamoiditis. In everyday life, the pain is not d... Read more

Well I was doing pretty well until this past weekend. After vacationing in St. Augustine, I weighed myself last week to find I had not gained any weight. That was a definite a victory considering all the DQ I had. I was determined to workout ... Read more

During the last few months I've been doing great in my quest to become the dancer I was in college. I was getting stronger and more flexible every week. But in May I found out I needed surgery that would put me out of work and dance class for ... Read more

I lost another pound. That makes 13 pounds since I joined SP in September 08. This isn't earth shattering but what excites me is that I haven't gained any weight since I joined. This is pretty remarkable for me. I was the queen of the yo-yo ... Read more

I spent a week on vacation in Cocoa Beach, FL. While I didn't go completely crazy, I didn't keep track of my calories and I ate pretty much whatever I wanted. I return home on Nov. 8 and will get back on track immediately.... Read more
