It's been almost a year since I have done much on Spark.... I have been working at being healthy though. I am proud to say that since August / September, I have been regularly exercising and eating moderately.
For awhile I didn't see any progress, so normally that it when I back off or stop altogether. However, I have a "Healthy Challenge" going on with my sister-in-law. It doesn't really mean anything... we live thousands of miles apart so no chance of getting together for exercise and we have no actually reward for the "winner". But having a calendar in front of me showing me my "success" days and comparing them to her "success" days, has kept me at it.
I am very happy to report that I have lost 10 lbs since last summer!! I have even lost regularly over the Christmas season. It has only been a pound (or less) a week. And I have had a couple weeks where I stayed the same or gained slightly. But for almost 6 months I have seen positive changes!
Hooray for my "HEALTHY CHALLENGE"!! I'm not in it for any prize or reward... except the reward of a healthier (and lighter!) person.
