This is my real life - not a practice round!

So much for the back story. I'm in this to improve my quality of life and hopefully to look a little better. I'm changing things up a little. Forget not using the scale. By ignoring it, I'm not making the kind of progress I need to make....that is , NO PROGRESS.

So, BACK TO DAILY WEIGH-INS TO KEEP ME ACCOUNTABLE!!
(I'm leaving the rest of my 'whys' / history below, in case you're suffering from insomnia, or in case it might open the door to dialogue between us.)

Back in the Spark world again, and I realize how much I have missed this supportive community. My life is still a little crazy. I work in Social Services and travel throughout the state quite a bit. Both daughters live in town and they have their own sweet families so I'm able to play with my grandbabies some - 3 so far, with another due in September. I'm in a long term relationship with a wonderful man who is my best friend and cheerleader! I have a lot to live for, but without making significant changes in my lifestyle and making better choices, my health will suffer.

After being absent for a couple of years, I have added a few pounds. This is the place I really need to be connected with to ensure my focus on health and getting rid of fat becomes a reality. This lifestyle change is really needed. Turning 60 this past October made me realize that I really don't need to play around at this any more.

My previous fitness program was intense and provided virtually no weight loss results. I have realized that counting calories may work for some, but not for me. I heard someone recently say that "weight loss is not a math equation, it is a science experiment!" There are many factors that affect weight, and I think hormones play a huge part. So, I promise to quit doing the same thing and expecting different results.

My new plan is to follow the SANE method based on "The Calorie Myth" by Jonathan Bailor. This is a Science based program that is based on the research of thousands of scientific studies. I plan to follow these 5 steps:

1 - Eat SANE foods (10 servings of non-starchy veggies per day, high quality lean proteins, whole food fats, and low-fructose fruits).
2 - Gradually, safely and sustainably exercise as many of my muscle fibers as possible for 10 - 20 mins once per week and to do interval exercises once per week.
3 - Get 8 hours of sleep per night.
4. Stay hydrated
5 - Do something to restore myself - like yoga, dance, stretching, walking, etc. each day.

Okay, that's it for now. My goal weight is 152 lbs. A sort of random number, but when I weighed that I felt good. I wanted to get back to my original weight, but 7# 6 oz. is not possible!

Thanksgiving Gratitude:
In the week before Thanksgiving Mary-Jo asked her class of 9 year-olds to write a paragraph entitled:
'What I am most thankful for on Thanksgiving Day'.

"I was going to serve sweet potatoes with Thanksgiving dinner, but I sat on them.
"So what are you serving now?"
"Squash."

You know that just before the first Thanksgiving there was one wise old Native American woman saying, "Don't feed them. If you feed them, they'll never leave."

Being defeated is only a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.~ Marilyn vos Savant

You meant to just have a cup of coffee at the coffee shop, but that pastry looked so delicious. When you cave to your craving, let it go, savor the flavor, and get back on track for your next meal. It’s never too late to make the day a good one!

“Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.” ~ Tony Robbins

The commitment to working toward your goal is up to you, but you know there will be times when you can’t control every little thing along the way. Sometimes you just have to be flexible, and commit to getting back on track tomorrow, or when you can.
