Day Two of Spark People

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

It's day two and can I just say this is easier than I thought! This decision of a healthy lifestyle and weight loss was due to a recent doctor visit that left me in tears. Something has to change and I made that decision right away. Anyways, I have been eating the recommended 1400-1600 calories per day and working out for about a half hour. I look forward to weight loss and an overall better feeling in myself. Would love any suggestions, comments, etc from others!

    Welcome aboard. I am a septuagenarian who is doing it. It took me five years to lose 60 pounds. I am in diabetic remission. I pedal over 10 miles /day on the reculmbent cycle and do many strength training and stretching exercises afterwards. I keep my calorie range betwen 1300-1500/day. I drink a lot of water al day long and snack on nuts all the time. It is working for me. Kep focused for successes. You cn do it. Go for it.

    Welcome to SP! emoticon I think that making a positive choice to lose the weight and the excitement of a new project really gives us a BOOST to get started. Just remember this feeling later on down the road, especially when holiday temptations pop up. Getting healthy and fit really does feel great when you do it right. emoticon emoticon

    I have to say this is the 1st time I have consistently lost weight- and the number one thing I have done differently (besides Sparkpeople) is TRACKING everything I eat- looking up the calories/ and writing it down, and staying within my range.

    Best wishes!
