After using the SP nutrition tracker for only a couple of days (I joined 8/1/11) I realized why I'm continuing to gain weight. (I weighed 128, my weight for years, in 12/07; I weighed 169 on 8/01/11.) I knew I wasn't eating well (I'm almost 59, I knew), but I just wouldn't take responsibility & make the necessary changes. Using the nutrition & exercise tracker keeps me grounded & motivated. Thanks twiggme3 for introducing me to SP.

I'm getting back up even though I let myself go this week so far.

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right.
