It has been almost a year since I started Spark. I have not reached my goal fell short by 20 pounds. In that years time I have changed my way of eating to a more healthier way. DD and her family moved in and we have improved their eating habits. By doing this I have been able to lower my cholesterol. I am walking more. And I have learned to eat healthier snacks.
I guess I am at a place in my life that can finally say I like who I am. I do not like my weight but I know I am changing that even if it is taking me longer than I have hoped.
I also have excepted the fact that I will have to work harder as I take many meds that I take have the side effect of weight gain.
I have learned that when you get past that magic age you have to work harder to shed pounds.
I have learned that my Grand daughter still loves me even when I have extra pounds on my mid section.
I have learned that it is the little things that count not the big things.
I have learned that it is not over for my diet just because I eat candy today.
I have learned that it takes more time to loss the weight from one piece of cake than one apple.
I have learned that I can not skip meals to loss weight That in fact I have to eat more .
I have learned that I can feel full after eating an apple on a small dish of cottage cheese.
I have learned that I still feel hungery after eating a full box of good and plenty's.
I have learned that I no longer look for food to save me from my stressful live.
I learned that a good long walk makes life easier to deal with.
I have learned that a new hair cut does wonders for the soul.
I have learned that it is ok to like me. That I am fun. I have a great way to laugh
I have learned that I do Love me.
