Back on Spark

Sunday, June 06, 2010

I am finding myself spending less time on the computer lately, which is a good thing. Unfortunately, this has also kept me off of Sparkpeople for quite some time. However, I feel that it is time for a return.

In part of the down time from Spark, I have allowed myself to slip from healthy eating habits. However, we are doing a weight loss challenge at work. We started a week and a half ago, and while my eating is not perfect, it has improved immensely and I have already lost some weight and feel healthier.

As part of this challenge, we are all wearing pedometers, and I am proud to say that on most days I reach 10,000+ steps. For those days that I don't, I try to make it up on one of the other days. So far, I have been doing very well.

So this is my return. It may not be thrilling for anyone else but me, but I am glad to be back in the community after almost 2 months. I am happy to see everyone is still doing great with their efforts, and I am also glad that I am able to help cheer others on to their success.

    Welcome back! I think group challenges are a great way to meet your goals. It helps push you farther than you could go yourself. I'm impressed with your pedometer results. I walk a lot and only do about 7000 on a normal day. Good for you!

    Welcome back!!! I'm so glad that you're feeling motivated. It's amazing what a challenge, whether at work or elsewhere, can do to inspire us.

    Welcome back! The tools we have here make managing eating much easier for me than when I try to ride solo. I make an effort to enter in my meals as I have them, and in advance if I can, and that lets me know if I have enough calories to have a dessert or evening snack. I go to the gym in part because I enjoy logging it in. My SparkFriends encourage me, and we root for each other. I'm rooting for you!

    Welcome back! Being part of a challenge can be a great incentive to work hard at it. A biggest loser contest at work is what jump started my weight loss. Good luck to you.
