When you can't miss spinning the wheel each day for your log in points.

Your food scale holds a place of honor in your kitchen so you can measure out your portions as second nature.

You can always find a friend near by that's interested in your day,
and you in theirs...

When you are at a restaurant asking for a nutrition guide for your food so you can track it!!

You realise you've spent a whole evening listening to music without even THINKING that you needed a drink or snack to make the pleasure complete.

You remember how you ate in your skinny days...and realize you are starting to eat like that again. In fact, you can no longer consume at one time, the same amount you were recently eating because it no longer tastes as good and makes you too full.

You don't eat a food because you can't be bothered to add it on the tracker!

You look for a different healthier food option, to get the same taste of the unhealthy option.

You don't mind parking a long walk away from your destination because it feels good to walk.

You realize you're short on steps, so you walk the dogs 3 or 4 miles instead of just 2.

you can't wait to log your fitness minutes and nutrition in SP!

your wardrobe consists of workout clothes and sport shoes

you check the nutrition information on food before ordering in a restaurant!

* You have more than one pair of magic running shoes (to rotate them out!!!)

* You speak "exercise-ese"

* You actually think subscribing to a health magazine is a better choice than a fashion magazine

* You don't care if your hair is still damp when you get to work -- you just throw it in a pony and keep on truckin'

* You actually SAVE time getting ready in the morning, because you've chosen to invest your makeup and hair time to working out and cooling down

* You can't believe how good you look without all the makeup and hair time in the morning

* You know how many miles are in a 5K

* You are practicing for a 5K

* You tell people you are practicing for a 5K

* You're no longer impressed with your 5K and think a 10K would be more appropriate for your skill level

Please feel free to add YOUR observations to the thread!!!

* You walk up the stairs without grabbing at your knees or pushing off with your hands on top of your thighs ...

* You bend ALL the way down to pick things up and never consider whether you should just get down on all fours

* You remember to hold in your abs, even when you don't remember to hold in your abs

* You get in and out of the bed in one move, rather than the 10-point move you've been doing for years

* You don't care WHO sees you working out

* You turn down foods that you know aren't in your plan for the day, or when you do take them, you consider how much of them to eat

* You download a program on your phone to mark your calories and exercises

* Instead of sitting in the Dr.'s office reading a magazine, you open up your mobile ap and earn some points for reading articles and answering questions on quizzes

* You upload an ap on your phone that tracks your steps daily

* You remember how it felt to pick anything in your closet to wear, without wondering if it's going to be too small

* You take a double-take in the mirror as you pass by -- is that ME? Nice!

* People you haven't seen in a few months do a double-take when you walk by

* You pass the time reading or grading while flexing and stretching various muscles

* You have a delicious secret about stretching and flexing: you're doing Kegels and NO ONE knows it but you!!! (The women-folk know what I mean!)

* You listen to motivational and educational SP videos while filing or doing miscellaneous office tasks

* You separate out your snacks at the beginning of the week

* You think snack-size bags are one of the greatest inventions on earth

* You know what "all natural" actually means on a food label

* You know what healthy cholesterol is

* You take great joy in buying new running shoes

* You think it would be fun to bike or skate to the store a mile away

* Ten-minute increments become an important time marker

* You can't post a message without looking for a new emoticon

* That you will eat healthy foods the majority of the time is not a question, but a given

* That you will occasionally enjoy (REALLY enjoy) a less healthy treat is not a question, but a given

* People you've never met in person give you the most sincere praise and advice you've ever received

* You fall in love with your team leader/challenge leader for thinking of you when you really needed it

* You are excited to see your new friends reach their goals

* You start looking for your new friends' daily status updates

* You start to miss your friends if you don't see anything posted for awhile

* You're excited to receive a virtual gift (I actually REALLY want some of those goodies!!!)

* You go and buy some of the Spark goodies at the local sporting goods store

* You know where the local sporting goods store is

* You clip coupons for the local sporting goods store

* Your holiday gift wish list looks like the local sporting goods store
