With the help of Sparks and my Sparks friends I lost 20 lbs. last year. However, I fell back into the same old habits and those 20 lbs have come back. In addition I had foot surgery which sidelined my exercsing for awhile and quite honestly I have not had the same intensity that I had before surgery.I also have had some lets just say hormonal changes and been put on medication which is making the weight harder to come off.

With the help of Sparks and my Sparks friends I lost 20 lbs. last year. However, I fell back into the same old habits and those 20 lbs have come back. In addition I had foot surgery which sidelined my exercsing for awhile and quite honestly I have not had the same intensity that I had before surgery.I also have had some lets just say hormonal changes and been put on medication which is making the weight harder to come off. I have every diet book and subscribe to every health and fitness magazine. Too much information is not always a good thing. I am tossing the books and cancelling the magazines. Bottom line I need to learn portion control and work out harder. Last year I was running 3 miles 4 to 5 times a day. Because of the foot surgery I am running/walking those same miles but since I am experiencing some pain/discomfort I am not doing it with the same intensity. So, starting today I am cutting my portions and working out harder. I began a kettlebell workout a couple of weeks ago in addition to cardio. I am having surgery on the other foot Oct. 22 so I will have to be creative with my exercsing for awhile. I am going to Hawaii on June 1, 2011 for my 30th wedding anniversary and I really want to feel good about myself. So here goes.

Hey Donna,
Hope your week is going well! A year from now you will be taking a new Luau picture...I want to see that on here. I have one here on my desk that I'm going to try to get on my profile.
Thanks for being part of our little accountability group....I know it's helping me, and I think it'll benefit us all. Have a great weekend! Mike

Dropped by your Spark page today. I'm new to the site and from central Ohio although from Canada emoticon originally. I'm on the Zone diet and eating about 1,800 calories a day at 5 foot ten inches tall and female. I'm at Level 3 already and hoping to reach Level 4 tomorrow.

I'm blogging about my complete lifestyle makeover and my Spark page is public so you're welcome to drop by.

I found out about the Zone diet originally from my mom who read the book and went on it years ago although she did Weight Watchers to lose her weight. I have most of the books especially the recipe books.

Best of luck! emoticon I know you can do it with the support of the Spark people!

Thanks for the golf game!! I haven't played yet this year! I played 6 years of college golf (3 at two different colleges) which should tell you that I was playing more than golf during my college years....I wasn't dumb, it just seemed like too much fun to leave....and I had to work full time most of those years.... Thanks again!! Mike
