I lost another 2 pounds and am thrilled. I am sitting here thinking..."what has been the key to success this time?" I know that Spark People has been elemental but I think an even more important factor has been that I am ready this time. I think when I hurt my back in June and couldn't get up, I got serious. I somehow realized that my life depends on my health (Now isn't that a sage statement? )
I have never been an active person, but when I started think of a life of total inactivity and being confined by a wheel chair I realized that things were serious. I know that God was with me that day when I read the newspaper article that mentioned Spark People and I signed up and spent the day setting up my page and reading, reading, reading.
Somehow, as I became more active, my depression lifted and I became even more active. The food changes have been slow and careful without an iota of deprivation. This life change is NOT about deprivation ... its about experiencing all that is out there, but in moderation.
I am also happy to know all of you out there are experiencing in your own way the same expansion of your lives as you get healthier, stronger and happier.
