OK, so I've been having trouble losing weight again, and it's been really getting me down. I have my Spark stuff set up right - amount of exercise time, weight goal, nutrition, etc. but I'm still not losing. Then, when I was reading the Spark Solution, I read that I shouldn't change my calorie range since I have a low thyroid. That made sense,, but to be sure, I e-mailed a SparkCoach. They say that the site is more correct, since it takes everything into account. Now I'm at a loss again.
To make sense of it all, I just sent an e-mail to my primary MD to see if she can refer me to a registered dietician or nutritionist or whatever to help me figure this all out. I've just been at a plateau for so long and then I've been gaining instead of losing, that I've decided to seek outside support this time. I just hope my insurance will cover the appointment.
I haven't been on Spark as much as usual, as I've been racking up fitness minutes instead. It's only May, and I've already surpassed my 10,000 fitness minutes for the year. It's easier to get more fitness minutes in when the warmer weather is here and I can walk, and hike, and bike. I will be getting some new sneakers in the next week or two,, and that will help too. You need good sneakers for fitness done right.
I thank all of my Spark friends that have kept by me even though I haven't been a great Spark friend lately. I appreciate it immensely. Keep on Sparkin'!!!
