Christmas Challenge

Saturday, December 01, 2007

I have a challenge for all my teams that is going to be hard but I think we can all just try our best. Thats all one can ask of one self. Okay here it is--

My challenge is not to gain any weigh this month. I know its tough with all the Christmas and New Year parties and all the extra treats around to trip us up but we have to learn to say no to some of the worst offenders and control our portions. A little extra cardio can also help.

I hope everyone really tries hard on this one and I wish everyone a Happy Hanukkah, a very Mery Christmas and as safe and healthy New Year.


Losing weight

Sunday, September 30, 2007

I have to thank Spark for all the help. I started in May and have worked hard to keep track of every bite and excercising. But I'm proof positive that if you set your mind to do something you can. Last May I took out my summer clothes and found that even my size 18's capris were to tight. I went shopping and most 18's were to tight. Thats when I decide to do something about it. That and the fact that I was having heartburn everyday and just walking up stairs from the basement to our bedroom (2 flights of stairs) I was totally winded.
I started my diet and found Spark. It is now 4 months later. I have dropped 42 lbs. I have retired not only my 18's but most of my 16's to.

I went shopping the other day and on a wim decided to try on some jeans. I took a 14 and a 12 into the dressing room figuring that the 12's would be to tight. I was surprised to find that not only were the 14's big but the 12 was a little lose too. I tried on a 10 and those were a bit tight but I bought them anyway and have them in my closet cause I know that in a couple more weeks they weill fit well

And to top it all off I have gone from a short 20 min less then a mile walk to anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half and 3 to 5 miles walk everyday. I can now run up from the basement no problem. The heartburn is just about completly gone. I went from popping antacids several times a day to maybe once or twice a month.

So spark really works. Just stick to it.
