Three years with Sparkpeople

Tuesday, December 01, 2009

Today's my three-year anniversary with Sparkpeople and I'm overjoyed with the results of this three-year journey. Just like most people, I've had ups and downs, but have managed to stay at my goal for two years now and have formed some very good habits. I'm walking a lot more than I used to. I'm doing yoga for 30 min. each morning. I'm Jazzercising 3 days a week. I'm eating healthier than ever, even restricting salt intake to keep my blood pressure under control. I'm an illustration of the falsity of the saying, "You can't teach an old dog new tricks." I'll be 79 in March and I've learned lots of new tricks from Sparkpeople. Thanks Sparkpeople for a new lease on life!

Back on Track

Thursday, February 12, 2009

A visit out of town for a week threw me off schedule. I ate more than usual and didn't exercise.
Now I'm back home and am buckling down to take off the pound I gained that week. I'll have free soup (tomato cabbage soup) for supper each day till I am back at my goal. Sparkpeople has become my conscience. I try to be honest when I get off track and get back on immediately. emoticon

Thinking back to changes I've made thanks to Sparkpeople

Thursday, January 22, 2009

I've been an enthusiastic Sparkperson for about two years now and have stayed at my goal weight for over a year. My whole lifestyle is much different now. I never liked to drink water, but I now make sure I get 8 glasses every day. I still Jazzercise three times a week, but have added a 30 minute walk on the days I don't Jazzercise. I used to wear size 10, but now wear size 6, even in jeans. I've lost inches everywhere and am much more fit and able to do more than I did before I started Sparkpeople. There's something about keeping a record of what I eat and how much I exercise that really keeps me on track. It's great to set a goal, work toward it and reach it, but it's even better to know I'll never "go on a diet" again.

  


It's great to weigh 110 (stripped)

Thursday, August 28, 2008

emoticon In all my life, this is the first time I've managed to stay at my goal of 110 for over a year. I owe it all to Spark People and Jazzercise. By keeping faithful and accountable and keeping records of my eating and exercise on the Sparkpeople site, I'm not even tempted to go back to some bad old habits. Feeling and looking great is so much more fun. It's wonderful not to be ashamed of how I look in a bathing suit. I love just getting on the scale once a week instead of obsessing and weighing every day.
