Hello Spark friends,
Today I am feeling encouraged. I have been sticking with the program, but every now and then eat the wrong things. I always stick to a 350 calorie breakfast which usually consists of 2 boiled egg whites, fruit, and a 100 calorie thin toast. My grandkids have left for the summer and I have gotten back into the routine of walking. The weather is great now for walking early in the morning or late at night. I can't stand the heat so this is a good time of year for me. I have been to the gym a few times and my goal is to go about three times per week. People have noticed that I am getting smaller which is a great thing to hear. Stick with SP and don't worry about not loosing weight too fast. Consistency will pay off!

I am stuck on the scale, but it is weird because my clothes are getting big on me and my stomach has shrunk, so maybe I need a new scale. The past two weeks I have lost focus on exercise because we have our grandkids for 4 weeks. My life has been out of balance but I still try to log on Spark every day. I'm having faith that by the fall I will have lost 15 pounds if I keep tracking and eating better. Smoothies are good and the Nutri Bullet is a great blender for mixing fruits with cucumbers, celery or other vegetables. Sometimes I just have the fruit/vege smoothie for dinner. Even though this is hard, I am still taking it one day at a time and not being discouraged.

    Hang in there! Try to focus on the other positives besides the scale; your clothes are fitting better, you're eating healthy foods, and doing good things for your health. Sooner or later that scale will move!!!! (So frustrating when you want it to move and it doesn't.)

I hate when people want to take my picture. I don't like the way I look and the pictures really show you how big you are. I've been using and tracking with Spark People for four months now and so far have lost 8 or 9 pounds. I don't understand why it is taking so long to loose weight, my goal date will not be met now until September to loose 30+ pounds. But I am not getting discouraged and will keep with the program. It is fun to get points and buy myself goodies and this is a motivator. emoticon

May 15, 2013: Today I am happy that I have started this journey with SP. The weight is coming off slow, but I will not quit. So far, I have lost almost 9 pounds in 3 months since joining the program. As of this writing, my pants are really telling the story because they are now baggy on me, but that is ok and is a really good thing! I have consistently tracked my food and fitness every single day and this really helps me to stay focused and realize what I am eating. I think this is the most important tool to use. Also Spark Coach is great. I can email them with my concerns and they provide solutions for my issue and logging in every day to Spark Coach, I have gotten some great tips and important information to help me stay focused. My weakness is strength training. I do try to walk every day but have to get better doing other exercises which I know will boost the weight loss.

  Just think of how much stronger you will feel one month after you start weight training. Congrats on your weight loss. emoticon
