I'm THIS CLOSE (picture fingers really close together) to my goal weight of 130.

I have struggled. I am still struggling with these last few pounds. SparkPeople has been a big help. The member CHALLENGEs have been a really big help.

I realize just how important it is to make use of the SparkPeople tools. Tracking my food and exercise, weighing in weekly, and connecting with a SparkTeam that is both supportive and motivating - these are the keys to success. It sounds so basic, but it makes a world of difference.

EXERCISE PLAN
I walk every day 2 miles (sometimes 4 or more)
I ride my exercise bike for 40 minutes 5x per week.
I do strength training at least 2 days per week for at least 20 minutes.

FOOD PLAN
I track my food every day on Spark.
I stay within my calorie range every day.

COMMITMENT
I weigh in weekly
I stick with the Turquoise Titans team (honorary now, since I am so close to my goal weight).

If being on both teams is a problem, I will become a floater on the other team. They have me on a (non 21) Registration Team, but I have been doing the challenges for a year now. The teams I lead are my first priority. Cruisin'on is only HelenChristine and me and now she is a Titan. We will chat there.
