These past few days have been proof positive that there are good days, and bad days. Yesterday I didn't even put on my Spark Tracker until 3pm. I exercised at about 10pm. I was so unmotivated! I have managed to stay within my calorie range, but it hasn't been easy.

I'm still in a lot of pain, but I am determined to stay the course. I'm still on a plateau, but for the first time, I am not going to quit! To #3!! with the scale! I'm going to concentrate on my NSVs. (That is Non Scale Victories). for example, my pants fell down! Now, not one more pound had registered on the scale when that happened! Go figure Plus, I can now see my collar bone!

So today is a better day. I put my Spark Tracker on my slippers as soon as I got out of the shower! I had old-fashioned oatmeal for breakfast and a large salad for lunch! emoticon

Let me say again, emoticon , I have never been so dedicated to a weight loss plan!
Many times we complain, but now just let me say that I'm Thankful!

OMG do I have a lot of catching up to do it is almost 3:00 pm and I am just now logging on!. I have not had even 1 cup of water today! I have not even put my activity tracker on! Usually by now, I would have taken several quizzes, huddled with my teams, tracked my food, got in some exercise, etc. Boy, do I have a lot of catching up to do! so I've been a lazy bum today, but I'm still a Sparker emoticon

As soon as I got myself together, I logged on! I even checked out a preliminary report, to see what food groups I had eaten too much or too little of! Now is that a Sparker or what? Now before it seems that I am obsessed or a "Goody Two Shoes", understand that I have to be faithful to this site, or I will crash and burn! Maybe this site is a crutch, but it's a great crutch, and its kept me on track for this long! And I have never been consistent with anything like this before, especially when I am faithful and I don't lose a pound! coming on late, getting a little behind (no pun intended), is just human, right? That's why we're Spark PEOPLE!

Yesterday I wrote that the honeymoon is over like it was a bad thing. I was so sure that I was in for drudgery because I'm not so excited anymore. Now the real work begins, I thought. Today it's not so bad. Last night I went to bed at a decent time and I was determined to drink my whole 72 ounce bottle of water today and exercise for 60 minutes. Well, it's 12:30 and I've exercised over 30 minutes so far, and I've had 32 ounces of water! emoticon


Honeymoon is Over!

Saturday, November 23, 2013

For several weeks now, I have been feeling pretty good. I have been pretty faithful to tracking, eating right, exercising and drinking water. I have not lost nearly as much as I thought i should. It really is 1-2 lbs. per week. I've made myself happy with that, because I know that I am older. I know that it was pretty easy because I am home all day long. Know I realize that I have to take a healthy snack with me when I leave so that I eat the wrong things out of hunger. I know that I must drink lots and lots of pure water. I know that I cannot skip exercise at all. all I can say is I will not backslide! I may fall down but I am going to get right back up! I am in this for the long haul, no matter what it takes! and I am going to diet quiet! SP is my outlet and support system! emoticon


My Life as a Sparksperson

Friday, November 22, 2013

As a sparksperson, I pass on the candy bar and eat the apple instead. As a sparksperson, I walk around the around the lobby instead of sitting down in the waiting room. As a sparksperson, I don't always look for the closest parking space. As a sparksperson, I stop at every drinking fountain. As a sparksperson, i really read and compare food labels. As a sparksperson, I choose the jeans instead of the sweats, AND as a sparksperson, they now fit!
