And now for something completely different...

September 2013:
Here I am again, a repeat Sparker since 2006. I did lose 30 of the 50 pounds I wanted to lose since my last update, but then my weight loss stalled completely. After frustrating months of getting nowhere, along came stress in the form of work insanity and a kitchen remodel. From May to September I managed to regain 25 of the 30 pounds I lost. :(

Here I am again, a repeat Sparker since 2006. I did lose 30 of the 50 pounds I wanted to lose since my last update, but then my weight loss stalled completely. After frustrating months of getting nowhere, along came stress in the form of work insanity and a kitchen remodel. From May to September I managed to regain 25 of the 30 pounds I lost. :(

So I'm back at it, but trying a completely different tactic. Since I was finding my workouts burdensome, I am following a very low-calorie, low-carb plan that is similar to Ideal Protein. I say similar because I refuse to pay hundreds of dollars for their coaching when I have Sparkpeople and the internet to help guide and support me. So far I am very, very happy with this plan; no rigorous working, a simple and easy food plan, and I'm dropping weight at a reasonable clip. So far down 10 pounds after only two weeks!

The plan is to get to my target weight and then follow the different phases to add back in healthy carbs and more aerobic exercising. I still see lots of challenges for me with maintenance. I must find a way to make my workouts more enjoyable, and need to work on the emotional/stress triggers. But I'm also hoping to find a way to maintain that isn't as burdensome and works with my life as it is now.

Maintenance! Woo hoo to YOU! Have you heard about the "At Goal & Maintenance" SparkTeam? Highly recommended...many, many wise Sparkers there. I wouldn't wait till you reach maintenance either as much of what they share is useful for those as they approach maintenance also.

Congratulations on your progress!

Thanks for looking at my SparkPage! Unfortunately, I am not a sailor. Although, I do love being out on the water! I chose that picture because it reminds me that I am the wind in my sails on my journey through life.

Have a great day!

thanks so much for commenting on my Furnace blog!!!! Yep we had two tanks and filled them both up at one time....I guess we could have taken smaller shipments but the smallest you are allowed is 150 gallons and that is over $600 at one time. My furnace was over 15 years old so it was due for replacement in the next few years so I thought I'd bite the electric bill bullet now and go for it.
