Thanks SparkPeople for getting me off the endless yo-yo rollercoaster. 10+ 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...

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:
Long walks, hiking, Zumba, kickboxing, yoga.

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

    Thanks for commenting on my blog entry. Sometimes I think I've got this and sometimes I don't. I got some of it at least. Getting down to 14 would be the best Christmas present.

    Thanks for reading and commenting on my "losing it" blog. I couldn't agree more that we have to find a way of eating and living that we can sustain for the rest of our lives. Giving up some food(s) just doesn't work for me. doesn't mean that I choose to limit some food but that's my choice. Believe that has made it possible for me to lose the weight AND keep it off.

    Yes, I will figure it out one food at a time and be off medication soon. That's the plan.
    My voice gets damaged because of the acid - this is simply not good for me and my job. I will take my health seriously.

    Hi! Thanks for the link, I will have a closer look at it in the next days.
    I don't drink any sugary drinks either. I presumed, that if the sugar in the sugary drinks influences your metabolism, so will any other sugar in combination with protein.
    Ah well, anyway. I think I will have to revise that idea of mine, because I can not keep the macros separate until now. To stay under 60 grams of sugar overall will be a good thing to do too.
    Have a nice Sunday!
