I Finally Got The Scale To Move!

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

I can't believe the scale finally moved in the right direction! I lost only 4.5 pounds and 1/2" to 1/4" in some places but it's a start. I've been using the food tracker for some time along with all the other trackers SP has but started with better choices on what I ate and upped the walks I took with my yorkie Toruk. Toruk has been a great motivator because he always wants to go for a walk no matter what time of day. Next I have to work on doing my strength exercises regularly. That would help speed the process up. I hope to be down 15 pounds by my birthday July 20th but if I have the scales move in that direction it will be great. Lucinda

One of these days

Friday, April 06, 2012

One of these days I'll win a sweepstakes from Publishers Clearing House.
One of these days I will lose 5 pounds.
One of these days I will love to exercise.
I'll keep trying which one do you think will happen first? I will keep trying and hoping and know I will get results on at least two of the three. What more could we ask for? Lucinda

    emoticon What delightful thoughts - i too shall overcome - lose the pounds and remain as healthy as i am allowed to be. I will do my part and ask the dear Lord for the "liking to exercise" 'cause that is too hard for me to do on my own!! HaHa

Daily Quote

Monday, March 26, 2012

The daily quote from today really hits home. "If it's meant to be it's up to me". I have been with SparkPeople since Sept. 2011 and decided to get healthy before I concentrate on losing weight. I bought the new cookbook then found out I needed to be on a gluten free diet so I've been going back and forth between regular food and gluten free foods because of the price of pre-packaged gluten free foods. I haven't lost any weight and the scales are going up and down according to what I eat. I bought the "Spark" book finally and have made it though chapter five. Gives me allot to think about makes me think it's time to really think about getting serous about losing weight. I have allot of excuses but like the daily quote says "it's up to me". I'll get it all figured out by the time I get through read the "Spark" very good examples and direction for me. It will be nice to grow in all other areas as well. So here it is all laid out there for all to see and makes me accountable for my actions. wish me luck in setting obtainable goals and the right attitude for success. Lucinda

Free Internet?

Monday, December 19, 2011

I use the free internet all the time. Lately it's been a nightmare! emoticon I cant' seem to get on the internet and finish any activity I'm doing like Sparkspages which is pretty annoying. All of the "high usage disk" or other net work providers try to make it difficult to use by popping up and you have to log on to their sight to use it plus join their plan. It' has become quite time consuming trying to look at the different pages, complete anything, delete advertisement emails, look at hot mail or yahoo news and all the things I love to do. Guess I will have to budget even more to join a provider so I can be on my notebook. Sorry just had to let off a little steam! emoticon

    I have a wifi netbook and live in an apartment complex where I pick up on other networks that are not secure. Lately comcast keeps me off SP and my email which should have over 1000 emails for me to read. I hate giving up on SP when I just found you and the support from everyone. Will keep trying to squeeze in when I can. Talk to you later. Lucinda

    I hope things get better so you don't have to worry over some darn service providers yanking you around like that.

    It's true! Friends can make or break your momentum in this program. Only with the support of my friends have I been able to keep coming back to Sparkpeople despite backsliding a few times! Keep on keeping on! emoticon
