*** DEFINING SPARK MOMENTS ***

10/08 Found SparkPeople using "exercise and nutrition" as a Google search! Began reading SparkPeople articles, blogs, emails, and tracking food and exercise every daily.

11/08 Daily Spark Entry: " The Magical Cooking Technique That Will Get You to Eat Your Veggies " Before creating this delicious recipe I had heard of vegetables, but I had never actually seen one!

12/08 To increase my daily water intake I ordered both a red and blue SparkBottle, naming them "fire" and "ice," respectively!

01/09 Daily Spark Entry:"Should We Impose an "Obesity Tax" on Soft Drinks?" I responded by imposing every pay period a $1 per excessive fat gram charitable donation tax on myself to cure me of excessive fat grams!
01/16 1169g spent -1120g limit = $49.00 tax
($49 literature ordered online & donated to Depressed Anonymous)

02/09 Purchased and began wearing a SparkPeople T-shirt on my days off to remind me of my Sparkfound commitment to fitness and to spend a little spare time spreading the Spark!

03/09 Daily Spark Entry: "Discover the Perfect Workout for Your Fitness Personality" I celebrated my "square" fitness personality by purchasing a portable DVD player so that now I can exercise anywhere!

04/09 Paticipated in a month long SparkBuddy challenge of accumulating water and fitness minutes!

05/09 After attemding the first SparkConvention held in San Diego, California - I redesigned my SparkPage to reflect the SparkPeople Fuel For Improvement System!

Member Since: 10/13/2008

SparkPoints: 9,363

Fitness Minutes: 8,250

My Goals:
WEGHT LOSS:

LONG TERM: Continue weight loss that started from 327 lbs and ends with maintenance at 150lbs.

MEDIUM TERM:
Lose 50 lbs from 10/08 to 10/09
SHORT TERM:
Lose 5 lbs each month
.
(Next weigh-in 05/23/09)

FITNESS: To one day match the same workout pace as the exercise instructors on my DVDs!






My Program:
"Fitness for Chessplayers"
When I weigh-in every Friday, my metabolism makes a chess move. When I select my one eating or exercise behavior change for that week then I am making a counter chess move. The game never ends, but I am becoming a better fitness chessplayer!


Also, taken from The SparkPeople Fuel For Improvement System:

MY GOAL IS REINFORCED DAILY BY:
1.) Reviewing what I did get done today & why I did it.
2.) Taking a moment to enjoy the results
3.) Eliminating one distraction

Personal Information:
Taken from The SparkPeople Fuel For Improvement System:

MY GOAL IS FOCUSED WEEKLY BY:
1.) Asking what decisions are supporting or detracting from what I am doing.
2.) Updating my weekly to-do list.
3.) Edit next week's SparkChart.

Other Information:
Spark Coach Quotes that sparked my world:

"It's better for a body to have a 150-lb apple shape than a 300-lb apple shape."
- Dean Anderson

"Most 'solid' margarines contain the most trans fat." - Tanya Jollfife

"By believing in yourself, and having a good support system (like the ones you can find on SparkPeople), you can achieve anything." - Jen Mueller

"Commit to just 10 minutes" - Nicole Nichols


"We no longer have to think, we just do. If we don’t learn how to cue ourselves to change than we fall prey to living the same way we always have." - Nancy Howard
