Thanks for visiting my page. I have been using Sparks since May 2nd, 2006, after my sister recommended the site to me. I lost 80 pounds that first year, and it was amazing how much better I started to feel in just days. I used to be tired all the time. I would put off going to another room to get something or even reaching down to pick something off the floor. Soon, I found myself running up stairs, pacing, smiling, happier than I could remember being for over 18 years. I felt like I had ...
Thanks for visiting my page. I have been using Sparks since May 2nd, 2006, after my sister recommended the site to me. I lost 80 pounds that first year, and it was amazing how much better I started to feel in just days. I used to be tired all the time. I would put off going to another room to get something or even reaching down to pick something off the floor. Soon, I found myself running up stairs, pacing, smiling, happier than I could remember being for over 18 years. I felt like I had found myself again.

Then I fell out of the good habits -- stopped caring for myself by tracking my food, water, and exercise. I gained most of the pounds back these past few years. That, too, has been a real learning experience. Like an alcoholic, I will have to face my addiction my whole life. When times get hard, I will want to resort to the same old patterns of denial and escapism by eating myself into an unfeeling coma. Returning to SparkPeople is my AA meeting -- full of friendship, support, understanding, and a kick in the pants when I need it.

My Goals:
I would like to look and feel beautiful in my wedding dress! I lost 80 pounds two years agp with Sparks! This year my goal is to lose at least 80 pounds and to tone up.

My Program:
I plan to carefully stay within my calorie range and eat as many of the "super" foods as possible. I am also trying to limit sugars and refined wheat foods. I need to force myself to walk, bike, or swim at least 4 times a week. I also need to force myself to do some simple weight training to build muscle.

Personal Information:
I am from New Jersey. I love to quilt, swim, and spend time in Maine.

Other Information:
I plan to savour each moment -- the odd, the unexpected, the bitter, the sweet. Really experience each emotion, every bit of beauty, even the ugly and awkward side of life. I find that if I do the same with each bite I eat, I am happy with less, easily satisfied, content for the first time in so very long.

I just went to the basement and rooted through a box of kitchen utensils and a stack of drawers, looking for a tea infuser. Our daughter left a lot of loose tea here, but I have no way of fixing it. I thought there was a tea ball, but I cannot find it. Your suggestion about tea is a good one. I can't use honey though, because I am diabetic.

I drank iced tea with no sugar and hot tea with artificial sweetener, coffee and water to keep hydrated.

I read your page and looked at your pictures. We will get healthier. I lost 40 pounds, regained it and recently lost 50 and regained.

If you don't mind, I'd like to quote your Feb 20, 2016 post on my blog. IT'S CLASSIC! And it deserves to be passed along.

Thanks so much for the encouragement on my blog! We definitely have been guzzling Herbal tea with lemon and it really does help!

You have Nubian goats? We wanted to get some, but sadly, never did.
