(Another) Re-Start

My black magic number is 40. Several times I have lost 40 lbs., and that seems to somehow trigger me to go back to my old habits. Maybe because I feel overconfident. Maybe because people have started to notice and I let my guard down. In this case it was a huge family crisis, but the tailspin continued.

My Re-Start date is December 2, 2013. I will call my "start" when I hit the 40 lb. mark. THAT is when my challenge kicks up a notch!

SparkPoints: 16,718

Fitness Minutes: 7,411

My Goals:
To build a healthy eating and exercise lifestyle that:
1) Is do-able
2) Is realistic
3) Is enjoyable
4) Has "buddies" to help
and
5) Is permanent

My Program:
1. Drink my water.
2. Exercise minimum of 30 minutes per day, 5 days a week, even if in two separate sessions.
3. Track my food intake.
4. SPARK!

Personal Information:
The "black magic" number for me is 40. I have lost 40 lbs. several times in the last 10 years, and it seems that is the turn-around-and- go backwards point for some reason. I did this on Spark. Lost 40 lbs, then hit a huge family crisis, and gave up (again). So I will consider my REAL starting point at my 40-lb. mark...only then will I "believe"!

Other Information:
I have in recent years started crafting...mostly crafts with nursing home residents, and crafting for community needs...stuffed bears, rag dolls, eyeglass cases for the poor...and things like natural bird feeders for local children's museum. Crafting is most fun when it's for others.

So there you are! Skates actually sounds like a lot of fun..

I normally hate it when people push specific diet plans on here, but I have to say, this WheatBelly plan that I've been following since January, I can't say enough good things about it and I wonder if maybe you would want to check it out.

I started on it because I was desperate to get my blood sugar down, but now I'm staying with it happily as a way of life because my carb cravings have completely disappeared. It's like having an enormous burden lifted, to no longer be battling those cravings.

You can google WheatBelly and find it.
