My dietitian recommended this app. I am on Lipitor 40mg QD. I am trying to lower my cholesterol and my blood sugar. I am not quite at pre-Diabetic, but I want to get it down. I have been loosing the Battle of the Bulge for twelve years. When I joined the military in ‘01 I was 170 lbs and I am now North of 240. 170 is not a realistic goal, but being under 200 is. Being in a sedentary job in a small office, with a great pizzeria across the street is not a good combination. I need to be healthy for my wife and pets.

    It all begins someplace and you just started there. Sp is the way to do it.

    We want to remember it took us a few years to put our weight on and it comes off a little at a time, just like it went on. People get frustrated with it not coming off faster than we put it on. But with consistent focus on doing what we are told on SP we will hit our objective. Like many things it just wont get there overnight.

    Make sure you make one of your most focused goals you water intake. Myself, when I hit plateaus its because I am not doing the water correct. I found using a reminder on my phone to be very helpful in making sure I keep on track with the water

    Life throws new challenges to us. My college weight was low like your military weight. Try to do the best with where you are today. Pizza maybe every now and then as a reward. Have a great week.

    You're in the right place. This site is great, and the people are encouraging. God luck with the pizzeria! I understand that struggle all too well. Have your favorite thing to order, only order that and plan for it calorie-wise. It can work.
