    Thank you so much for your comments on my blog.
    As you go through life, always hold your head up high and walk tall, be proud of yourself, of what you have accomplished and what you have yet to accomplish!!

    Welcome to Spark.

    I joined in January at the suggestion of a friend and it really has changed my attitude and approach towards health, in terms of nutrition and exercise. I mean, I still dislike exercising, but I do a bit every day, just not lots--but it has been enough that I have taken off over 70 pounds. And, once in a while, I eat dessert (small portion), pizza, cheese, etc. But in healthy portion amounts and as a rare treat, rather than a daily occurrence.

    For me, success has really come from logging in a few times a day and tracking my food. Makes it much easier to stay within my calorie range and to be CONSCIOUS of what I am choosing to put in my mouth. I've also gotten a lot more patient--I see that this is for life. I don't reach goal weight and then get to drop by Dairy Queen every day (not if I want to stay at a healthy weight).

    I've also learned that eating something that isn't part of my healthy eating plan is not a reason to say "Screw it, I'll eat whatever I want today and then start again tomorrow (or Monday)." I managed to put on my final 70 pounds putting off my diet until Monday for the better part of 3 years! Now I try really hard not to think of this as a diet, but a series of choices I get to make about the kind of life I want to enjoy. So--do I have dessert at Benitz' Bistro, for example? Heck, yes! But I only eat there about 6 times a year. So that's okay. ..

    Stay on Spark and you can achieve every health goal you have (and a few of the vanity ones, too).
