15 months maintaining - and I have decided to step away from spark people. Whilst SP has taught me so much, I know it is time to get off the computer and start living my real life more fully.
I might check in from time to time - but certainly not every week.
Thanks for all my spark buddies - and everyone in the spark community who helped me get to this point.

Intuitive Eating
After tracking fairly religiously for almost 17 months, and maintaining for 11 months (Since Nov 16 2011) I have decided to stop tracking my food.
Tracking helped me learn so much - but I also forgot much. Forgot to trust my body to determine what it needs. Forgot that I know what a healthy diet is. I now know about portions and calories - so I feel well armed to try a freer approach to food.

"eat food, not too much, mostly plants" Michael Pollan
& aim for 1200 exercise minutes per month

From now on, my goal is to shine.
Exercise and healthy eating has improved my energy levels, and the mild depression I suffered has quietened down. So there is nothing to hold me back!

"Be who you are and say what you feel,
because those who mind don't matter,
and those who matter don't mind."

    Supposedly, I'm due October 23...but since it's twins, apparently that means I'm not too likely to make it that long. The nurse says they typically shoot for 37 weeks with twins if they can, so I might end up having them in early October instead. We shall see!

    Oh yay, I'm glad you happened to pop by SP just in time to see my news! :)

    Here's a further detail that I haven't put in a blog yet...I kind of wanted to save it for another one as ANOTHER surprise - but we're having twins! (As a result of the fertility treatments, it doesn't run in my family or anything.) So there will be DOUBLE the fun/stress/cute clothes/crying/love! :)

    Wow! I can't imagine hot and dusty weather right now. It's 43 here which is a heat wave. We're due for a lot of snow later this week. Take care!
