Staying Active & Eating Healthy

This is my 4th year Sparking! This site gives me inspiration, encouragement from staff and SP friends, challenges and tools to be successful in whatever I do!

After a life changing event this summer I quit tracking, quit working out, ate bad bad food.
There is no loss greater than a loss of a child. Grief was taking over my life, not to mention all the very hard work I had done for the past 5 yrs. If Spark People wasn't here, I am not so sure I could have gotten back on ...

In 2009 my doctor told me I would have to take cholesterol meds to lower my cholesterol and then when the Long Term Health Care application was rejected because I was 20 lbs over their limit, I knew it was time again to try to get to a healthier weight. Besides, I hated how I looked in a pic!

Staying motivated isn't very easy for me, I need a support system, and constant reminders. The weight creeps back in to my life when I don't keep my goals in check.

The SP Fitness Tracker is awesome, I love mapping the different routs we take. After logging my food I use the daily analysis, it is great to see that my eating and exercise was in sync or not!
