Can you believe I won 1000 goodie points on the wheel?!! That is 2500 points I've won in 2 months, I had 3 500 spins as well. Guess I just have the healthy finger push! Whoo Hoo! I need to start sharing them more.

Weigh Day and the scale was at 180 after weeks of up and down 2 pounds. My goal this week is to nutrition track daily and so I hope that maybe I can see the last of the 180's soon. You know what? You can have snacks and so called "forbidden foods" if you track and account for it! Yesterday was my brother'in'laws birthday and I went for lunch. Sis asked me to pick up a carrot cake at Publix so I did. She lost 60 lbs on one of those strict fancy weight loss programs and he has lost many pounds over and over on the same program. He loses and then gains back and then goes back on the program to lose again. I have to give my sister credit as she has managed to maintain it by staying close to the program and going back when she needs to . And they walk daily 3 miles or more. So yesterday they are back on the program again. Here was lunch: Huge salad of lettuce, cucumber, pepper with oil and vinegar dressing, topped with 3 oz grilled chicken breast (weighed) and about 2 T grated cheese on top. And a sliced apple. I could not eat all of the salad. And then we broke out the carrot cake and B-in-law ate half of it and we each had a small slice and I took a slice home to hubby as he could not go. I was still under a healthy 1300 calories for the day even though I had the cake.
Thing is, they go to Subway almost everyday for a grilled chicken salad and they get double chicken. Oh, how boring that would be for me. But that is their staple food on this diet. About the third day of that and I would be throwing the salad at someone. I more enjoy the variety of veggies and meats I get to eat. And the fruit! Never knew how much I appreciate fruit now!

I was going to join that program last year and I was not qualified because of a particular medication I take and it would interact with their supplements, etc. Thank goodness as I don't get that suggested to me anymore.

I have every confidence in the world that I will lose weight with Spark and I will maintain that weight loss for the rest of my life. I am visualizing the pounds dropping off between 180 and 160. Finally to that illusive 160! It will happen! Tomorrow!

    You do have the luck of the wheel, have you thought about a short trip to Vegas. I can't do boring diet either and that whole think about paying to check in on the scale isn't good for me either. My mood becomes dependent on the scales result.
I like SP, like the plan, the people and the results. Hooray for learning to eat with moderation!!!

    ...and you don't have to spend all that extra money 'adhering' to the diet program, plus you are learning to eat with moderation so you can have variety and 'treats' and still be healthy. Good for YOU! You are making good choices. Tho I confess, I like Subway my own self. Now and then. Not every day, lol...
