Ah Ha!!!!

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

I am not much of a blogger but I just had one of those ah ha moments. While cruising through Spark this morning I ran across a few pages of fellow Sparkers that were asking about different types of diets (Atkins, South Beach etc.), I have even had a few people ask me what kind of diet that I am on… well funny thing is I am not on a diet, well I don’t consider it to be it is more of a lifestyle change. I realized that my previous attempts at weight loss (before Spark) were unsuccessful because I was trying to confirm or stick to a diet set-up by someone else that had no knowledge of me and what my body actually needed. After joining Spark I learned about nutrition and what my body really needed and thus I have created my own regimen I guess you can say. For me trying to stick to a standard DIET becomes old and boring and not something that I can stick with for long, I think that is why we sometimes are not successful in our journey; because we are trying to follow a DIET and not a lifestyle change and then when we get of course for 1 day or even 1 meal we feel like a failure and just give up. My advice to anyone who ask about different diets is to learn what your body needs, make gradually changes to how and what you eat, measure portions and make healthy choices (I feel that is easier to stick to) and don’t restrict yourself because if you do and you make one mistake (if you want to call it that) or get of course it may be hard for you to get past it and move forward. Well that is my Ah Ha Moment for the day…….GOOD DAY FELLOW SPARKERS and remember make today count as FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION.
Best wishes.

    I agree with you. Trying to follow a DIET is very restricting and sets you up for failure. Figuring out what your body likes and doesn't like AND giving yourself an allowance for something you really like so you don't feel cheated or something is the better way to go. And hey, who said it all had to come off TOMORROW? Find a weekly goal and figure out what it takes.

    Oh I couldn't agree more !!! When people ask me how I lost so much weight I tell them I just changed the way I eat !! I eat healthy now !! And it didn't happen over night It has taken me over 2 years so far to lose the weight and I have plenty more to go, but I'm in no hurry.

Congrats to you on the birth of your child and your continued success !!!

    Great blog!
You have hit the nail right on the head! Diets are hard to follow and being on a diet usually means that you are giving up something. Meanwhile a lifestyle change allows you to eat what you want. It is all about making sensible choices! Portion control those items with high calories and absolutely go bonkers on healthier options like veggies and fruits! Be accountable for what you put in your mouth and make the right decisions.

Thank you so much for sharing!

Realization…..

Friday, June 08, 2012


I started this journey to lose weight (I wanted to be skinny :-)) but as I progressed I learned that it was more about being healthy and fit. I started my journey January 2011 and by the start of June 2011 I had lost over 70 pounds then mid-June I found out that I was expecting. I had a difficult pregnancy; at first I was very ill everyday then I became very tired all the time….needless to say working out (something that I had found out that I really loved) was not on the to do list for me. So here I am about 1 year later, I have a beautiful healthy 4 month old daughter and about 60 or so extra pounds. The funny thing about it is that I am not upset or mad about the weight gain as I know that I can shed those pounds and then some in no time. I must confess, I did have a hard time starting over again but I came to the realization that I would rather be healthy and fit than fat and tired….with that in mind I logged into Spark and reset my trackers (tear) and started just where I left off. I must say that Spark and all of my SparkBuddy’s are awesome, you guys made coming back so easy and welcomed me with open arms (just as if I didn’t take a leave of absence). Although I did have a valid excuse for not being active (on Spark and Physically) I really missed out on a lot. I see that a vast number of my SparkFriends are MIA….I know life situations come up (as it did in my case) and I also know that we sometimes have setbacks and are too embarrassed to come around. Whatever the case maybe I wish everyone on this site and this journey the best. Please know that this is a process that will not change overnight but with hard work and dedication you can and WILL be successful. If you fall down get right back up, dust yourself off and start right back over again. Find what works for you and stick with it, listen to your body. Remember failure is NOT an option.

Dear, there is nothing wrong with starting over.
That is the wonderful thing about each new day -
it is a chance to do a little better than the day before.

I love this quote from Martin Luther King, Jr:
"If you can't fly then run. If you can't run then walk.
If you can't walk then crawl. But whatever you do, keep moving."

Another good one (don't know author) is
“Success is failing 99 times and getting up 100”
(or something like that)

Please keep us posted


Have a Glorious Sunday

Guess who just jogged 1 MILE NON-STOP…..

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

Me, that’s who! Yes, this girl just JOGGED 1 ENTIRE MILE NON-STOP. I am so happy I can barely control my emotions, the last 1/10th of the mile I was smiling from ear to ear and I did it in 9:59. You guys have no idea what this means to me. I logged onto Spark late today and saw that it was National Run Day so I was like I am going to jog as far and as longs as I can without stopping. Well, so far I have only been able to run .25 miles without stopping so I was going to push myself to do .50 miles, a ½ mile came and I told myself to keep pushing just to see how far I could go….around .70 miles my calf muscles started to cramp a little but I was like I made it this far and I am going to make it all the way and guess what I DID IT!!!!! I have read so many times that it is mind over matter and I so believe that! I jogged outside up and down my street (I didn’t feel like driving to the track) so I jogged a slight hill a few times. I could not believe that I actually did it so I got in my car not 1 but 2 times and set the trip mileage to zero and drove back and forth up the street to make sure that I really did 1 mile and yep I did! I even had my husband to do it, LOL. I am in disbelief.

I have so many SparkFriends that are runners that I look up to and that have given me advice along the way, I THANK EACH OF YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART! I just had to share this news with you all….I feel so good I may just go out and jog another mile. Today I have learned that all things are possible, this (to me) is a dream come true! I will be jogging a 5K in no time.

Believe and achieve, I sure have.
Blessings to all.

    That is FANTASTIC and I know you must be floating on cloud nine. I have to tell you how really well you did because 9:59 is a wonderful time for any runner. I just wrote a blog yesterday because I was so thrilled to have reached a sub-thirty 5K. It was on the treadmill though and that is a lot easier than running outside. It took me two years to reach that speed, so my hat is off to you. You will be smokin' in a 5K.

The last time I went running was 10 + months ago, and it was not pretty. I decided to go running this morning because I haven't lost any weight or inches doing workout videos and eating right for the past month. I'm pulling out all the stops so today it was running.

You know what - I went 1.28 miles in 18 minutes. That's a 14 minute pace but I did it! And you did it - at a 10 minute pace no less! That is awesome! Surprise runners REPRESENT!!!

  Well done and thanks for sharing. I have been trying to do the running thing for a few months. I started with 1 min run and 2 min walk fast for about 20-30 mins 2- 3 times a week. The last time I ran it was really hard so I was doubting if I would ever be a "runner". Yesterday I went running and it was amazing!!!!! I ran 2 mins with 1 min fast walk for 20 mins. The most amazing thing was that I was not focussing on the difficulty of running, my mind was free..... I enjoyed the views (lake, birds, planned dinner etc. It was like meditating.
My goal is to run non stop for 20 mins; not sure how far that is.

55 POUNDS Gone FOREVER. :-)

Sunday, May 22, 2011

Wow! It is hard to believe that I have lost 55 pounds. I am so proud and grateful for my success, I give this site and all my wonderful SparkFriends a lot of credit, you guys keep me going. I actually had someone comment on my page and tell me that I inspire them, what me!?!? Oh, that made my day and made me want to push even harder. It seemed so easy to lose this first 55 pounds; I pray that I can continue to say the same as I get closer to my goal weight.
What have I learned in the in the last 4 months (since joining Spark)?
That I can do anything that I put my mind to.
That I may have bad days but I can PUSH through them and that my GOOD days far outweigh the bad.
That I can jog….yeah me, jogging.
That I can encourage others (another big wow for me).
That I can and WILL reach my goal weight.
That working out is fun and gives me a rush afterwards.
That my SparkFriends are the best.
That this is a life style change and not just some quick fix.
The list could go on and on. I am so proud of myself, I have started “DIETS” and stopped so many times before but this time is different, I don’t feel limited on what I can eat and I have not thought about giving up! I know that my mind is made up and I am determined to be successful. I feel so much better and I have a ton of energy now, I actually look forward to working out. Hard work, sweat and sometimes even tears help us get a little closer to our goal. For me it is not all about looking better (although that is a huge PLUS) but being healthier and having a better quality of life. It is amazing what losing weight can and will do for you physically and mentally. I am so thankful for all of my accomplishments and for everyone who has helped me through my journey so far. My husband is the best and is so supportive, he has adopted my new eating habits and we (along with our son) work out together.
Thanks for all of the support guys.

    Congratulations, that is great. To lose 55 lbs you should be celebrating.
It's nice that your hubby and son are embracing the change in lifestyle and it's a family affair.
I am so happy for you.
Take care and stay positive, you are well on your way to being what ever you want to be.
