Finding new ways to stay motivated!

Welcome to my Spark Page! This site helped me reach my goal weight in 2010. I've spent 3 years trying to stay as close to that weight as possible! My latest, VERY effective tool is listening to podcasts. I can listen from iTunes or a website so that means at the gym, in the car, wherever. I have a few favorites and I also co-host a show about trying to find your way with all the diet & health information out there. Join us at www.fat2fithq.com and check out our new Sparkteam!

More about my journey: I had lost about 30 lbs and I am still so grateful. After that time, I inched back up about 15 lbs because calorie restriction just wasn't working for me. I continued to work out and stay very, very active. But I was not able to out-exercise my food choices. In 2012, I left Sparkpeople and spent time learning about myself and what foods, even natural "healthy" foods, put weight on me. I have been within 5-10 lbs of my goal weight for 7 months. I can live happily at this weight but I have realized that the support of this community will help me maintain and make the best choices no matter what I'm trying to achieve. For now, it is staying vigalent, motivated and as close to goal as possible! Would love to be your motivational buddy! Visit often!
We CAN do it together!!!!!!!!!!

SparkPoints: 4,801

Fitness Minutes: 7,025

My Goals:
To stop having to edit my Sparkpage every time I move up a few pounds again. I'd like to get around 115 - 118.

My Program:
Used to have a very strict program but I burned out. Now I'm just going to try to move more & eat better!
A Paleo approach to eating (as a guideline) has worked very well for me over the past 6 months. I've come down about 8 lbs just cutting out the processed stuff and moderate exercise.

Personal Information:
Mom of 3 small children, wife and teacher. Podcaster @ www.fat2fithq.com and on iTunes

Other Information:
I host a weekly podcast where we chronicle our journeys to goal weight. The guys who do the show with me are pretty funny and we now have a community of folks around the world that write in to the show and have started getting healthier with us. www.fat2fithq.com

What?! No splenda! Wow, my hat goes off to you. Thanks for the tip on the noodles. We have Whole Foods here, so I'll see if I can find them there. I haven't had anything close to pasta for a very long time, so I'm looking forward to trying the noodles.

I too have been guilty of focusing on the carbs and conveniently forgetting about the calories. Ugh. Such a balancing act. Have a great weekend.

Hi Carole, Glad to see you again! I'm plugging along with weight training and running, and only occasionally tripping over a jellybean. I'm excited for warmer weather here! We've gotten just a taste of it!

Hope all is well! Thanks for checking in! Lynn

I'm doing good this week. I'm only eating 1 carb (100% whole wheat) for 4 meals...and I'm doing 6 mini meals a day. Hard with work schedule...but I'm just going for it. I want to get back down to 120-122! I'm drinking water LIKE CRAZY...my students probably think I 'm nuts with all my bathroom breaks! I also don't eat anything after 7:30 p.m. except drink water.

BUT....it's EASY during the week. It's THIS WEEKEND that will be the challenge, if I can keep it up Sat. and Sun. I should be on my way! emoticon emoticon emoticon
