Sparkpeople Walking Mix CD

Friday, November 09, 2012

I bought the CD on ITunes and downloaded on my Ipod. Great music, I then went walking and with the help of the music I did 3 miles. I hope to improve my distance to the same music with more walking. You know as I improve I will walk further in the coming weeks.
So now it's 6 weeks till Christmas and I have probably gained weight. I lack support outside of Spark. I used my fitbit today and hope to continue walking with help of the CD. I walked 10,000 steps. It was a beautiful fall day and I enjoyed the sunshine.

    Six weeks till Christmas - yikes! I woke up thinking about the too-snug Christmas dress I bought last year. I will have to crack down on food if I want it to fit as sleekly as I envisioned when I bought it.

If SP is the only place you get support, you've surely got plenty here!

13 Weeks till Christmas

Friday, September 21, 2012

Since April I have gained back the pounds I had lost. Why does this keeps happening ( lose-gain, lose-gain ), I must get my memory checked. When you get older (56) you realize the extra weight is not our friend, even though it never leaves you. With the extra weight comes health issues and vanity issues as well. I am giving my self another chance to enjoy life by eating healthy and getting more physical activity. With 13 weeks till Christmas I want to see how much success I can have with my weight loss goals. I have set a half way goal to break up the 13 weeks. The reward for reaching my goal would be improved health which is priceless.

    So what can we accomplish in 13 weeks? I too have been struggling with lose and gain and lose and gain syndrome. I'm hoping the Fall 5% Challenge team will help me break the cycle. I love this quote:

"Strong women are not those who succeed the first time. They're the ones who fall time and again, but still keep trying till they succeed."

The whole thing is on my Jan 3 blog, "Strong Women".

    LOL--I sure wish I could divorce my extra pounds, but it just isn't that simple! I'm 44 now and I work and play harder than I did in my youth, but the pounds just keep a-comin.

Good for you for setting realistic goals! Good luck!

    These ten answers are so true! If it wasn't for the human aspect, to reach out to other's, with a friendly understanding, it would be the same as any other diet site cold and lonely.
