Baby Steps

I found SP while looking for a nutrition calculator. I'd lost 25 pounds without much of an idea about what I was doing. I was amazed and grateful to discover that Sparkpeople is so much more than a calorie tracker.

I know from experience that making small, consistent positive changes snowballs into an avalanche of change. I didn't know that I would need to pay attention to every day if I wanted to hang on to the benefits of those changes. I didn't know that nothing is or can be ...

I know from experience that making small, consistent positive changes snowballs into an avalanche of change. I didn't know that I would need to pay attention to every day if I wanted to hang on to the benefits of those changes. I didn't know that nothing is or can be allowed to be more important than health. Not studying. Not chores. Not even family demands.

But I am learning that now.

Personal Information:
I'm from Seattle Washington and I LOVE to hike. Love, love, love to hike!

Other Information:
I have juvenile diabetes which puts an extra wrinkle into exercise, like checking blood sugar in the middle of a long run and carrying juice and a glucometer everywhere. Oh yes, an occasionally crashing.

I'm midway through nursing school where I am probably the oldest nursing student ever.

Thanks for the goodie and message. I expect tomorrow to be good too, but my husband returns home from a trip on Sunday. The next week will be full of temptations. emoticon

You may not have lost every week, but you have still lost more than I have. I'd be happy to trade. emoticon

Mini-challenge for you: Change YOUR focus ...

Focus on: What you can do, not what you can't do
Focus on: What foods you can have, not foods you can't have
Focus on: How far you've come, not how far you have to go
Focus on: What you're doing right, not what you're doing wrong

Say "I don't ..." instead of "I can't ..." It puts the power to choose in YOUR hands. YOU are in control because You are a Champion! emoticon emoticon
