I actually love the little trophies and awards that SparkPeople issues. For me they come at just the right time! Sometimes I'm so busy with challenges, blogs, trivia, putting steps on my Spark Tracker, etc. I don't have time to obsess about my weight. Thanks SparlkPeople for making the journey interesting and enjoyable! emoticon emoticon


I've Got It!

Friday, January 10, 2014

I've always tried to find out exactly how to lose weight, that is what's the formula, etc. I know that it's a long term life style change, but I think that my always wanting everything in a neat little package has been my downfall. Also, I've always wanted guarantees. For example, eating these many calories plus doing these exercises will guarantee 2 pounds of weight lost per week. Well, this plateau has been a wake-up call. Actually, its not a plateau anymore, since I've lost 1.5 pounds this week. The main thing that I've learned is; to be flexible. There is no one solution. If you can't get to the gym, walk around the mall. I someone keeps you waiting, march in place. If you can't get bottled water, drink weak tea. I'm just using crazy examples, but what I mean to say is; just be flexible. I think that I have been on 15 different diets since I've been on SparkPeople, and they were all healthy and all within the nutritional guidelines, Why was I trying to stick to such a perfect formula? I've finally got it, just keep at it, and be flexible!


Day Nine

Thursday, January 09, 2014

I typed a whole paragraph and I lost it! So this one will be shorter. On my way to therapy and I'll exercise there. I got in a few minutes on my mini cycle and had a great low carb breakfast. I feel so full. I'm taking an apple with me, in case I get hungry. Well, I'm so excited about the contest on Sunday at the mall, I can hardly wait!


The Weight is Over!

Wednesday, January 08, 2014

I was sitting here on my computer, watching TV and saw a feature about a new weight loss contest at a local mall. You pay $100, weigh and enter a contest for a makeover, and other cool prizes. The thing is if you reach your own set goal after 12 weeks, you get your $100 back. There are welcome bags and other fun activities for participants, as well. You can also solicit sponsors to help you. The best thing is, all the money raised goes to the Children's Miracle Network, so it's a win-win! I am so there!

Today was one of the best days that I have ever had here on Spark People! It's my three month Sparkversary, so something must have clicked, because I drank my water with glee, exercised with gusto, and stayed happily within my calorie range! I am so happy right now, I am so looking forward to tomorrow. I already have my workout planned, and it's a doozy. It's a one hour high impact aerobics that I know that I could do, but have been avoiding! I want to do it right now!
Endorphins are something else! I am also committed to my nutrition plan. I don't want to eat anything but what I'm supposed to! I'm sparkling!
