I joined SP in 2008, but started really USING SP in late Jan/early Feb 2009. Between Jan 2009-2010 I lost 60 pounds, and held most of that weight off for 2 years. I then injured my shoulder and deal w/ chronic pain. Lately it's getting to me and I've regained 25#. It stops there. My jeans I was wearing around my wedding are no longer tight - they don't fit.

I'm going to continue to eat mindfully, workout in spite of pain and manage pain (that's what the docs tell me to do), and get back to 160.

Weigh ins:
1/5/10: 211
1/15/10: 209 - started SP consistently and C25k
1/24/10: 207
2/15/10: 205

3/29/10: 194.8
4.5.10: 193.8
4/12/10: 189.6
4/20/10: 196 - super duper sad :( vacation massively killed my progress.
4/26/10: 191.4 - yeah back on track!
5/03/10: 191.4 - no loss, but no gain either :)
5/10/10: 188.8 - yeah - bye bye 190s.
5/17/10: 187.4 - TOM slowing me down?! I hope!
5/24/10: 186.0

At that point I was static - weighed 165-170 for about 2 years.

10/22/13 - 186#
5/5/14 - 194# - nothing fits anymore.

Mid-May 2014 - I saw a sign for a newly opened CrossFit box in town, the same day I told my husband something needs to change because what I was doing wasn't working anymore despite trying! Joined the next day.....the rest is current history.

    Acupuncture went AWESOME! I had more energy after I got out then I have in a while. That is why I was able to hop on the treadmill. i felt fantastic! I highly recommend it! check out community acupuncture on the web. It's a nationwide movement! It's awesome!

    hello. Thanks for peeking in on me. I am not feeling too well tonight due to Aunt Flo visiting. The cramps are really horrendous and so I took it easy, just walked tonight. My car should be back on Tuesday. I got a settlement from the ins company and my mechanic said he can get it fixed for less. I'm real tired today though, didn't sleep very well due to cramps last night. Back to work tomorrow.

    WOOO hoooo..ONEderland for you! That's great news.

    Thank you for your support on my blog. I'm really feeling down today. Yeah, I've heard the speech before too, always easier to give than take. I am thinking I might take another day off today, but we'll see how I feel tonight. My cramps are horrendous!! Got some good news about my car, it might be able to be fixed for under the settlement amount, which would be GREAT for us! I'll know more later today or tomorrow morning. I'm not eating well at all, actually not MUCH at all.

    i'm doing acupuncture for me, my overall health, but also for depression, migraines, bursitis, and infertility. It's a community acupuncture group and it's a sliding scale fee so it makes it affordable for me finally! I've always wanted to do it as my mom swears by it!

    Hey!! Thanks for checking in on me yesterday! I am LOVING my new sneakers. I can't believe what a difference they make. I did W4D1 yesterday and NEVER could have ran that much in my old ones, so I am quite thrilled. I still can't believe that i am running 5 minutes to begin with! I am SO proud of all of us. I can't wait until we all get through together and know we were all there to push and support all along!! Love and hugs, Kym
