thanks for stopping by my page.....and yes, just like you, my exercise is number 1, eating #2...everything else, comes after....i have to keep my focus on my health first just like you 2411 days ago
for your comments on my blog. What you say is SO true. I think that two things set SparkPeople apart. The first is the support that we give each other. The literally 24/7 support that is available is beyond belief.
While developing ongoing relationships is most important to me, if I faced a food crisis @ 2 a.m. I could blog or go to the "Panic Button" blog and someone somewhere would reach out. That is amazing.
The other thing is what you described--the kind of flexible structure and measuring tools that allow us to decide how we are going to deal with our particular issues. There is no rigid "diet" but there are guidelines that are firm and tons of information that allow us to make choices based on intelligence and the most current research.
When my nutritionist referred me here, it just "clicked" the way it does when you meet the right person. I know...I'm running off at the key board...but I am just so enthusiastic I can't stop myself.
Hope you are well and are continuing to follow your journey to the best possible health and wellness. Keep me posted on what you're up to and I'll do the same!
BTW, as I mentioned on one of my blogs, I have been invited to be a guest blogger in May on the topic of taking great pix during and after weight loss. I have been asking some Sparkers for any issues or questions that they have about taking pictures so I can select particular issues rather than speak in generalities. I won't mention names, of course. So, if you have any queries, please let me know. It may be one of the issues I discuss. I would appreciate any input you can give me.
so much for your insightful comment on my blog. I know you're right. I definitely over think things a lot of times. I did take a brain breather yesterday--I did no work at all. I chilled out. I do feel better.
so much for taking the time to comment on my Spark Page and for the encouragement. I appreciate it so much. I feel like I'm on the edge of a precipice and am about to jump off. Either I'll fly like a bird or fall and have to try again later. Why does everything have to have a bad/scary as well as a good side?
BTW--your new picture is fabulous. You are looking great!!! I hope you are feeling equally great. You are inspiring me.
