Actually, you bring up a good point. Many people say they're here to get healthy, but they judge everything by the scale. Some people admit appearance is mostly what they're interested in, which is fine, when they're honest. I wish there was a way to track food and fitness habits without the calories on Spark for awhile (or forever). Real success doesn't come for most people until they realize that the benefits of how good they feel and how much better food tastes when you're not stuffed sink in and they realize, Hey, I can LIVE like this. The weight is secondary. How do I know? I visit teams where there are young women who basically are thin but think they need to lose 5 pounds. Everything they do is for the scale and they are miserable.
Concentrate on learning over time what combination and amount of light and dense nutritious and luscious foods will make you feel balanced and vital. When you find that and keep going, plus throw in a minimum of frequent vigorous activity (less than you think) and some walking, your body will find its natural weight relatively painlessly. Our pain comes from our impatience. 1578 days ago
