I love Spark People "2"

Thursday, August 12, 2010

Life is nice if health is good
health is good if we look after ourselves
Spark People are helping us in that for free
they consider every part of our health and they deal well with it
hold on
follow it and don't let it slip

  


I Love Spark People

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

I think we are lucky to find this free place to learn
People are paying lot of money to get silly dangerous advises
We in the spark have knowledge, friendship, followup, encouragement..... so many others.
these are sincere and honest
May I say
" GOD BLESS YOU ALL"

caffien

Monday, August 09, 2010

Caffeine affects everyone differently, so if you’re sensitive it might be worth trying to cut down—or limit caffeine to the morning only. This can mean more than just cutting out a cup of coffee. The major sources of caffeine in Americans’ diets are coffee (71 percent), soft drinks (16 percent) and teas (12 percent) but chocolate is also a source. Our ability to excrete caffeine decreases with age so while you might have tolerated four cups of coffee a day when you were 20, you’ll probably need to cut down as you get older. Cut down on caffeine or limit it to the morning; if insomnia persists, consider cutting it completely

  


A deal

Sunday, August 08, 2010

keep reading about people regain what they loose in six or twelve months.
why? I do not understand.
I am an adult with all my will and determination I am managing for very sensible reasons my weight by dieting and exercise. It is supposedly a Deal with oneself.
all I am doing are becoming habits that I miss if I can't perform for any reason.
Why do I loose these habits and regain my weight? I beleive it is the desire to eat funny and new foods.
So if we learn how to hate them we probably win at the end.

    I don't think we need to hate them(it would help though) but we need to learn to work them in to our eating plans maybe just in a lot littler portions and some of these new foods might even be healthy for you. I love trying new and funny food too so I would really hate to see you give them up. Good luck.
