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."

Thank you! I am glad to be able to take the team over, it is good for me to help keep centered, I think....

Where are you in Australia? My hubs spent four years down there he lived in NSW and LOVED it. It is my dream to go there and New Zealand someday. I have always had a fascination with Aussie. Love the accents!!!

Thank you for your supportive comment on my Tough Times blogs. The suggestions you made are great - I'm always looking for new ways to save.
I got blood tests done at the docs about the hair loss and everything came back normal so I guess I have to wait it out.

Hi! You seem like a nice person & I have a question for you (about an issue we have in common). I wanted to send you a private SparkMail to discuss, but it looks like you're not on SparkMail. So, if there is a way that you could message me this way (if you're willing to do so), please do. (Then I could reply & we could have this conversation.) SparkMail is always private. (I didn't realize this when I first joined.)
Have a great day!
: )

I am sorry your Monday is a rough day and that you are tired. I work with Kindergartners and know how demanding they are! But they are also adorable.

Thanks for your support on my blog.
