Another one bites the dust.

Monday, August 20, 2012

emoticon Another pound lost. Don't you think SP is so amazing? I have never had an easier time losing weight and feeling in control. Tracking food and excercise makes a big difference. The feedback is great too. Great big emoticon to all my Spark Buddies who have been so supportive.

    Congratulations! I love that we all find our way to make it work... and if it's not working, we've made enough friends along the way to stick around and give it another try.

Previously, I only ever lost weight when something was wrong; at minimum I was unemployed. The weight crept back on because I hadn't really changed my habits. I lost 65 pounds in 18 months of stress a few years ago, and it came back at about 2 lbs per month. (Which was kind of a good deal, considering I ate whatever I wanted and did NO exercise!)

This way is so much better, and now I can look at ads for prescription drugs, personal mobility scooters, fad diets and "As seen on TV" exercise equipment and think "NO, never!".

    emoticon on the pound that went out the window!

Yup, I agree; the support truly is great!! And the trackers? Fantastic... especially when you really study those reports the tracking generates.

I'm not only older, I'm better.

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Yes, today is my birthday and I am not only a year older, I feel much better because of SP.
I started this journey in April and have shed 26 lbs, so I feel better this birthday than last. I was helping my daughter move yesterday and felt much stronger, not to mention younger. It's a great day to be a Spark Person.

I am so beat.......

Friday, August 17, 2012

So today my daughter is moving from a 3 floor condo to a 3 floor house. Oh the steps. My husband and I loaded boxes in our car and SUV and carried them from the third floor of the condo up the stairs to the third floor of the house. I got plenty of excercise points today because of it. Now it's tme to relax, but oh no that is not going to happen. We have a contractor that is redoing our bathroom and he left our house this morning at 1:00 am and came back at 9:20 pm. I think I will pull my hair out if he stays that late again tonight. My husband is giving me a new pedometer for my birthday and he is a stickler for not giving gifts before your special day, so I didn't have it today for the move. I will get tomorrow though.

Just say no.

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

I took my grandson to a birthday party for his friend. I was sitting next to the snack table the whole time. I did not put a bite of food in my mouth. I had a healthy lunch before I went to the party. When it came to cake and ice cream, I politely declined. That is when my best friend piped in and said "Why do you think she's lost so much weight. " That made me feel so good. Now I have saved room for the next birthday party, this Saturday. Mine.
