Health and Happiness

It has been over two years ago, that I began this wonderful Spark adventure. I have successfully lost sixty pounds and as of the beginning of September 2011, I have been in maintenance for one year. Today, I switched my tricker to a maintenance ticker. I can say this new me is real. The way I eat, the way I think, the way I exercise and the way I look, have all changed. I am delighted! I really love the transformation!

It has been over two years ago, that I began this wonderful Spark adventure. I have successfully lost sixty pounds and as of the beginning of September 2011, I have been in maintenance for one year. Today, I switched my tricker to a maintenance ticker. I can say this new me is real. The way I eat, the way I think, the way I exercise and the way I look, have all changed. I am delighted! I really love the transformation!

A journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step. I am stepping into my future each day as I build a foundation of health and joy with a commitment to physical activities and wonderful healthy food while making connections with new Spark Friends.

This is the next great adventure in my life. I want it to be the best it can be. Join me in a celebration of life as we transform ourselves with love and gratitude into exactly who we want to be.

Stepping stones on my journey:

nutraceuticals.

The Gabriel Method Jon Gabriel There is more to a healthy weight than a good diet and exercise. Your mind and body must be on the same page to see long-term success.

PACE Al Sears MD
This book dramatically changed my workouts. It is a form of interval training that is efficient and effective at both burning fat and building health. And remarkably in less time than than other programs

In Defense Of Food

Good to hear from you. We have much in common. I am always happy to hear from you. What is going on in your life at present? I have a tough time at work and it is very unpleasant.

Thank you so much for the "both." DH were talking over the events, and he said it's worse to be the healthy observer. He remembers almost nothing. I think it's worse for the other person too if the sick person doesn't remember anything.
