When everything feels like an uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top.

Thanks SparkPeople for getting me off the endless yo-yo rollercoaster. 9+ years and counting.

I started my SparkJourney in March 2007 when I was 10 lbs away from my goal weight.

Prior to finding SP I had lost 30 lbs doing WW online but was unable to lose the last 10.

After 6 years of fine-tuning, trial and error, I finally reached my ultimate weight goal in early 2013, and am now maintaining within a +/- 3% radius.

I'm hanging out and hanging in, still fine-tuning as I go. Maintenance does not mean you have it all figured out...

Member Since: 3/5/2007

SparkPoints: 50,868

Fitness Minutes: 77,516

My Goals:
1. Better nutrition: More veggies, more fruit, more whole foods, more water. It continues to be a challenge.

2. Improving my strength, endurance, and flexibility with continued regular workouts.

3. Achieving balance: Mind, body, and soul.

My Program:
1. Nutrition:
Focus will be on HYDRATION.
I'm terrible with water. Goal is 48 oz. a day. That's 6 cups. Even I should be able to do this.

2. Fitness:
Love to hike. You'll find me on the trail somewhere almost every weekend.

My favorite workout during the week is Zumba and/or kickboxing.

I also enjoy yoga to balance it all out.

3. Balance:
Aiming for at least 7 hours of sleep every night.

I am glad you found the book. It is very popular here in Australia. I hope it helps you discover the many hidden sugars in food. Little steps go a long way. Have a lovely day. emoticon

Thanks for the reassuring comments on my blog! I am very good at worrying, since I've had so much practice! I don't know if the worrying adds to or lessens my stress. I do know that once I get the insurance taken care of, I'll stop worrying about this and move on to obsess about something else!
