Keeping on Track With the Spark Solution

Yesterday was hard for me, although I was able to stay as close to my calorie range as possible, I was away from home and on the road all day and home very late. That meant three meals out. But...I am completely back on track which is a first for me!!! I am not following the menu exactly as it is given, but keeping the foods and calorie counts very similar. I think what is working the best for me is that I have a Spark Friend that is allowing me to be accountable to her. The extra encouragement really makes a difference.
I do have very strong family support ( they want to keep me around for a long time) but it somehow helps even more when you are getting support from someone who does not have an agenda if that makes sense?
I wish I had done this when I was younger, but what's past is past! I am looking forward to a brighter future.

    I am so glad that you are finding a way to make this work for you. It really helps when you have someone to be accountable to and there is always more encouragement here whenever you need. it.
    I've been considering buying the Spark Solution to help me get to goal. I don't know if it would make it easier or more difficult. I can usually stick to my calorie range, but I never really know what to eat and always end up eating the same. thing. Sometimes I just wish someone would say.... OK ..... eat this and I'm done. Are you finding that it involves a lot of prep and cooking... I heard that from another member.
    It is never too late to be making the change. You have a very bright future and your family will be so happy that you will be around for them. emoticon
