My Support

Monday, July 04, 2011

Right now I am feeling very happy because I have a great husband (Don) who is supporting me on this new journey and this week I have met some very special people who are becoming my friends here on Spark People. Having been on another weight lose program I know how important it is to talk to someone about how you are doing and what others are doing that might help you. I am really looking forward to loosing hopefully 50 pounds before the summer is over. I know it might be impossible but right now we have very little plans since we have had our vacation and only have one wedding to go to next week. This should make it easier for me to stick to my plans without temptation. Right now I am using a lot of Special K Products to jump start my journey. I have packaged a lot of foods in zip lock bags with the name of the product, the amount and the total calories in the bag. I definitely write everything down in an old 3 month journal from Weight Watchers.
I haven't been on the Spark People a week yet but I can see and feel the care of others on the program. Everyone has made me very welcome. I will be more than willing to support anyone who needs it. I know it is not an easy road to loose weight they are temptation along the way but I will try to pick up myself and keep the road open for more success. Right now I am trying to drink more water by adding a little Special K protein Mix with my water. I just kind of color the water and make it last a long time fewer calories that way. LOL And counting calories in a full time job. That is the only way I can loose weight. I am open to more suggestions. This week I am going to try to get on the Treadmill more and move around more not sit so long at a time. My wheels are turning and I am going to try to get my feet moving also. Come with me on my journey and we can travel together. Marilyn

    Love your determination and attitude. We just have to remember this is a lifestyle change. That is what I love about WW. It doesn't restrict me from eating what I like. We just have to be mindful of portion control. That is with any weight loss method. Did you know there is a WW team on Sparkpeople? Check out my Sparkpage and you will find it. I find it very supportive. I too need to write things down. Have not been good about adding in attending meetings, since I do use Sparkpeople more.

Hang in there and keep Sparking. Blessings emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You can do it! I love your attitude! That is a large part of the battle. I plan on loosing a lot during my summer break as well. I have 10 more work days then I'll be on break, I can't wait!

Right now the heat and humidity is really high, it makes working out difficult. The best time to work out when it's like this is at 5:30 a.m. but that's when I leave for work, So looking forward to working out during vacation. For now, I'm trying to move as much as possible, get up from my desk at least once an hour etc.

Together we can accomplish all our goals. You are a great asset to this team!

  I love to use the "recipe" section on the nutrition tracker. I do a lot of home cooking and this feature has come in very handy for me. Good Luck!
