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."

ILIKETOZUMBA

Thanks for commenting on my blog and sharing in my excitement about getting my period back and starting fertility treatments! :) I start my injections tomorrow, so hopefully there'll be a mini-ILIKETOZUMBA in the works within the month! And if not this month, then maybe next month! (But hopefully this month...LOL this stuff ain't cheap! Nor am I patient!) And like nothing else before, actual tangible progress (in terms of getting my period) and starting treatment is helping me be TRULY okay with downgrading the exercise, so yay! I mean, I sat on my butt in the doctor's office for like an hour straight today, and didn't worry about being sedentary - I was like, this is rest that I need to make and keep a baby! This is good! I'm planning a greatly-reduced jog for tomorrow. I am feeling more at peace than I have in MONTHS.

Thanks so much for all your support!!

Thanks for the suggestion I will join the team, I tried letting go before but I guess I'm so tightly wound I sprung back! Maybe the support of a team would help. It's funny that when I make a promise to myself not to eat on my own things are much better, when I do that I kind of give myself permission to eat chocolate etc... but in moderation.
I really like that idea - thanks :-)

Thanks so much for your comment on my blog. You made such a good point about talking to myself the way I would my best friend. I would never call another person fat or degrade him or her the way I do myself

Your blog came up in the maintainer team feed. We lost about the same amount of weight in about the same amount of time. I reach my one year in maintenance this week! I went from 70kg to 59kg and then a bit more. I'm now maintaining at 54kg. It was nice to read about someone who had the same weight ratio to lost as me and is still going strong!!
