What I have learned from Sparkpeople

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

I celebrated my 1 year Sparkiversary yesterday. emoticon So much has happened during this year. Here is what I have learned while I have been here.

1. I learned that I had been over eating. I ate the wrong foods and a lot of them. emoticon emoticon emoticon
2. I had to relearn how to eat in a healthy manner. I had the knowledge but I needed to put it to use.
3. The only way to have safe weight loss is through exercise and eating right. Don't tell my doctor that I admitted this as he will get a big head over it. emoticon
4. I need to measure my food as my idea of what a serving size is isn't always accurate.
5. Fruits and veggies are not the enemies.
6. Exercise is actually quite nice. I try to do something daily. I have also learned that I love the elliptical and aqua jogging. I'm even running now. emoticon emoticon emoticon
7. I did not put the weight on over night and should not expect it to come off that way. It took me over 17 years to get to my highest weight. I know I will have fluctuations and I am learning to not let it ruin my day if I have a higher day. emoticon
8. I need the daily interaction of Spark. I look forward to posting on the boards and reading the blogs.
9. I look forward to participating in the challenges.
10. I learned that not everyone will be happy with my decision to become healthy. Some people are jealous over my weight loss and some just don't understand. Well, that is ok because I am doing it for me.

I went from 211 pounds to 134
Waist 39.5 to 27.5 inches
Hips 47 to 34.5 inches
Thigh 24 to 15 inches
Arm 12 to 8.5 inches
Waist to hip ratio .85 to .79
I lost a total of 77 pounds and 37 inches

I went from a size 18 to a size 5.

I am thrilled that I have the tools to continue on my healthy journey. Thanks to everyone who has joined me on this journey. I thank all of you for your love and support. Here is to another great and healthy year.

    Thank you for this.... I liked the part about weight, measurements and clothes sizes.
I thought to myself, that in due time I could be a nondouble digit size ... someday in the future. I could buy thrift shop clothes! I'd like that. Thanks for sharing what you learned. Same here, Sparkpeople educated me, socialized me and helped me stay motivated even with on again off again times.

I think you can add a couple of things to your list:

you have learned that you are worth it
you have learned that you can do anything you put your mind to
you have learned that you have staying power to follow through with something huge for an entire year and more
you have learned that you have the courage to start on a course that has an unknown end

BRAVO!!

My personal Tough Mudder- Bike version

Saturday, August 10, 2013

Today I was all excited because I was able to explore different trails at the new Metropark. I did the usual route first and then I went to the new park. I took a path that led me through a river. Yes, through the river. emoticon So, I went through the river. Then I had to turn around because the path ended. emoticon Thanks! A notice would have been nice. Back through the river I go. Then, I decided to go along the marked trail. I thought I would take it around the park and then pick up the trail that ends at the Nature Center. Well, that would have worked out well except I took a wrong turn when I reached one of the paths. emoticon I continue this path and ended up going through the woods and through tons of mud. emoticon I am not a seasoned off roader yet so it was a work out for me. I finally make it back to the regular path. emoticon When I reach the section where I had made my wrong turn, I noticed that if I had made the correct turn I would have only been a quarter of a mile away from where I wanted to be. You live you learn I guess. I'll know better when I go on Monday.

I took pictures to add to my blog but they ended up turning sideways. I'll try to take pictures on Monday and then post them. I get to see all of the pretty rivers and trees and just enjoyed having time to myself. The bad part of the trip is that I have to ride on a pretty major road to get to the other park that I needed to ride through. There isn't a park connector. I made it in one piece and avoided being run over. I think I rode about 20 miles today. I feel great. I might not have seen a decrease in weight this week but I did not gain. emoticon I have also cut way back on the exercise and I feel much better about it. I am enjoying being out in nature- even if that does include going through mud.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend.

My bike ride in a different park

Thursday, August 08, 2013

Today I took a bike ride in the Lorain County Metropark system. emoticon I rode my bike to Day's Dam to Bur Oak, and then to High Meadows. I then decided to try the French Creek Metropark. It was really nice. It isn't paved for the bulk of the ride. So I took my mountain bike off the pavement and on to gravel. I find it funny that I have a mountain bike as there isn't a single mountain in Ohio. emoticon I have plans to go back tomorrow. There were more trails to bike and hike on. I only did two of them. Tomorrow I am going to try to do three trails. It was so nice going through the woods. emoticon I was able to spot a couple of deer even. Then I went back to my usual path behind the steel mill. It isn't the prettiest path but it is paved. I hope everyone has a great rest of the day.

Here is the site- www.metroparks.cc/parks.php

I was at the FCR and BRR.

    So jealous! I wish I could ride a bike. I've tried several different times; never could get the hang of it (balance/ nerve?). Last time was about two years ago when I fell really hard and wracked my left shoulder. It still pops and gives me pain in the middle of the night. I'm going to see a specialist next week about it and my right shoulder I just injured kayaking. What a mess... You'd think I 'd learn some lessons from these run-ins with gravity and old age! emoticon Anyway, have a wonderful time for both of us... Blessings, JOY emoticon

My ride in the Metropark

Tuesday, July 30, 2013

I love living in the greater Cleveland area. I am very close to museums, restaurants, the lake and tons of other things. I'm also happy to be so close to the Metropark. For those of you not from the Cleveland area, a metropark is a huge park system that is semi-connected from Cleveland and surrounding suburbs. It is usually made up of trails. Not a park that has equipment for kids to play on. Cleveland has a great one and it connects in several cities. Its nickname is the Emerald necklace. I hope if any of you are in the area you check it out. You can run, walk, bike and hike. In some places you can ride your horse, play golf or rent a kayak.

I live less than 2 miles away from one of these gems and I decided I would dust off the ol' bike and take a ride. emoticon I rode for about 18 miles. I have been exercising for about a year now and it was so nice to see how far I have come. Last year at this time, I had a difficult time going up some of the hills. Not now. Last year I could only do 10 miles before wanting to give up. emoticon Today, I could have gone further but hubby doesn't like it when I go by myself.( Of course, he never goes with me but that is a topic for another blog.) I was able to stay in the highest gear for all of the ride. Last year I would have used my lower gears more than I should.

Overall, it was just nice to have some time to myself out in nature. emoticon You don't get nature while at the YMCA. I didn't get to see any deer this time but I did get to see some men running without their shirts on...not that I was looking or noticed. emoticon I need to start taking advantage of the metropark more. It has been unseasonably cool here and I should be outside more. I did however, forget to put on sunscreen. I will have to remember that for the next time.

I hope everyone is having a great day.

PS- Here is the link if you want to look at the Cleveland metropark system www.clevelandmetroparks.com

    I too live near the Cleveland metro park system. My husband and I decided to go for a walk in the park system on Saturday. We found ourselves walking a little over 2 miles and we did half of the fitness trail. We had to cut it short because of the mosquitoes. I think it is great that you were able to tackle the hills easier. emoticon

Moderation

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Webster defines moderation as" avoiding extremes of behavior or expression : observing reasonable limits."

Of course, this concept never entered my mind. emoticon If it did I would not have allowed myself to get to 211 pounds. emoticon Through Sparkpeople, I have learned how to eat in moderation. emoticon I'm even learning how to have sweets in moderation. emoticon The bad thing is now I need to learn how to exercise in moderation. emoticon

When I first started to exercise I would do it for about an hour each day. emoticon emoticon Then I started to enjoy it. When my husband would go with me I would only stick to an hour as well. He eventually stopped going with me so I bumped it up to 90 minutes each day. emoticon emoticon emoticon I then started to see results with my weight loss so I increased it to 120 minutes each time. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Then my layoff happened and all bets were off. I now had tons of time on my hands. emoticon I did not want to stay at home because then I would have the temptation to eat and snack. So, I used this time and put it into exercise. There are some days where I am working out for 4 hours at a time. Today I had a small victory. I had the opportunity to stay and exercise for 5 hours and I did not do it. I skipped a spinning class and came home to be with my puppy and knit.

Now, I have different reasons for the exercise. I like it and I feel yucky if I don't do it . It is a great way to work off stress or anxiety. It also lets me socialize now that I am unemployed.

So if you ever wonder why we are only allowed 120 minutes of exercise I am sure it is for people like me who are still learning moderation. I didn't even change my nutrition tracker for fear of going overboard on eating and exercising.

I hope everyone is having a great day!

    Moderation and variety add spice to life.
I tend to get injured if I push myself too hard.
I have an addictive personality even for 'good' things so I can
relate to a blog on moderation.

Scheduling in fun things, crafts, a DVD, a DIY home improvement
project, reading... all need to be our day or week at some point.
If all you do is exercise, talk exercise, you might just get a bit
lopsided, ya think?

    I may be too heavy on the exercise part too but I love it and my body craves it so if I feel good, I do it. I work in a physically demanding job so I can't say I want to do quite as much as you but 90 mins to 2 hours especially on weekends works for me!
I have a hard time taking a night off because I figure I can always just walk and that is not overly taxing. I guess if it doesn't hurt our joints and our body, we are ok. I will just listen to my body when it says to take a break.

    I guess I have this problem, too! Too much exercise! I just do not see it that way! IF I feel like I am over doing something, I, too will back off a tiny bit! BUT I love to exercise & it makes me feel yucky if I don't do all that I WANT to do! I generally do about 120-150 a day. A slow day for me is 60. I LOVE the endorphins! I am getting SO toned! I do usually 3 sections of exercise a day. Zumba in mornings 3 days a week, Walking LUCY pup, 4 days, swim 1/2 hour a day, usually in eve. Pilates 2 times a week, weights a tiny bit, Flash Mob dancing 2 times a month with rehearsals, etc. SOMETIMES I might miss 1 section in a day. But once I am dressed for exercise, I go for it! I DO NOT feel bad about it. YES! I have a compulsive personality..... that's WHY I am on SP! To help me keep my life's process going! I also, work almost full time, am helping my sweetie with his back surgery healing, Sparking, ect. Basically living life. I have always tried to live life to it's fullest. Whatever it takes!

Also, I didn't change my food tracker, either! Then I started gaining weight. NOT an option for me! SO now I always eat at the highest end of my calories, AND my weight is coming back down. This maintenance thingy is REALLY tricky!

Thanks for this blog! I CAN TOTALLY RELATE TO YOU & this "PROBLEM"!

Have a Sparkling one!

    I'm glad that you have realized what you were doing and backed off. An injury is a terrible setback that can occur from doing too much and no one wants that to happen. Maybe you can readjust your focus to meal-planning, cooking or finding a hobby that involves other people that can share with you time and interests. Possibly find ways to get your husband back into the grove of exercise? Just a few suggestions to keep you from over doing it or slipping back into the eating syndrome. Sounds like you have got a great handle on what it takes to be a success. What an inspiration!!

    When i was younger I would play tennis till I dropped and the more exercise the better. I had so many braces on at one time that I looked like Darth Vader on the tennis court. I have been dealing with knee issues ever since. This is a real bummer for someone who likes to exercise and do sports as much as I do.

Fortunately in my 50's I found water aerobics and I have also added yoga and ST. I learned moderation through limitation. I hope you are smarter than me!

Good luck and much success on your journey! emoticon

    One time when you mentioned you went to 3 spin classes in a row, I thought, "Woah." And not in a good way.

There is so much more opportunity to get injured if you exercise that much. Obsessions, even healthy ones, can lead to other issues too. And it's not sustainable in the long run, anyway: you will get a job (soon!) and will have to cut back.

What other positive things can you do for yourself that use your time in a constructive way? Read? Informational interviews?
