Hi, I like your positive outlook on life! I got on the scales in January to realize I weighed 297 pounds. Never in my life had I weighted so much. I decided I needed to do something. A counsellor had suggested Sparkpeople and so I joined. I have lost 21 pounds to date. I have been gradually increasing my exercise routine. I am feeling better and know that this is a journey not a destination. I aim at losing 1 pound at a time until I reach my goal of 187 pounds. Thank you for your positive inspiration!
February is another one of those months when stores create magical candy-filled displays. Inside those foil-covered heart-shaped boxes festooned with lace, ribbons and fake flowers are chocolates that have been rattling around in their cardboard container since October--and they taste like it.
Treat yourself to something sweet and delicious that tastes like real food--crisp apples, juicy grapes, fresh pineapple, or a perfectly ripened pear. Just say no to cardboard.
