There is a saying in islam that trials and tribulations are a sign that God loves you and wants good for you, because basically a diamond doesn't shine unless it's polished. We learn from mistakes and problems, and hopefully learn to thank God i... Read more

I have to say that I am proud of myself. But also that the amazing support here is a huge part of it! I tried tracking on another site for about a week or so before finally creating a new account here on SP, and it was so boring. No motivation. ... Read more
What a night.. and day!

So I've been really pissed off yesterday night and today. I don't want to bore you with details, but basically we're under a lot of pressure right now, financially and emotionally. We don't have money but my husband is expected to take care of e... Read more

A part of my program is to stay well away from anything with gluten. I have weird neurological symptoms and pain, and many people say that gluten (and other food stuff that can cause/feed inflammation in the body) should be avoided. Yesterd... Read more

So. Weigh-in today showed a tiny weight gain of 200 grams.. *gasp* I'm taking it easy though, this ALWAYS happens to me after I've increased my strength training and am sore all over on weigh-in day. (Which reminds me that the day before th... Read more
Day 10

We went to visit my mother in law today, and I was afraid that it would be as usual, lots of food and soda. There was of course food and soda BUT I ate only a normal portion of the soup (normal!!!) and I did NOT touch that Fanta. Yay me! M... Read more
Day 8, and workouts on a (very tight) budget
Friday, November 29, 2013      5 comments

So I guess I didn't really fall off the wagon these last 2 days, I just lost my balance a bit. Today has been great so far, I did my exercise (I even added light dumbbells without passing out!) and I'm well within calorie range, even after enjoy... Read more
Self sabotage in progress
Thursday, November 28, 2013      9 comments

Yeah, nice one. My brain once again tricked me into thinking that just because I ate a little bit too much yesterday, "I might as well" today too. This always happens after a successful weigh-in. Sigh. What's the solution to this, exce... Read more

Okay, so I didn't lose so much weight in just 4 days. I weighed myself about 2-3 weeks ago, and today was my first weigh-in since joining SP. I feel SO happy and excited that I'm finally going in the right direction after so many months of gai... Read more

Looking back on today, day 3 of sparking, day 2 without any gluten. How do I feel? Great! Hardly any issues today with my legs or feet, and I didn't really feel hungry either. Right now I'm enjoying a cup of tea and some (healthy and natural) sw... Read more
Does mocking people of other faiths really belong here on SP?
Sunday, November 24, 2013      5 comments

I came across a blog post where a christian was mocking muslims. It was your average stereotypical BS that I know all too well. (I'm on the internet a lot, lol) I'm offended, yes. Apart from the obvious, that it's not very pleasant to hear ... Read more

Second time I register here at SP. I'm glad to be back, and I absolutely LOVE the new layout! Much easier to access everything when it's all clearly shown on the front page. One of the reasons I finally lost interest in SP before was that it was... Read more
