  • Lost 2 pounds and back into the 190s

    4/23/2017 1:31:00 PM, by AUNTRENEE

    Yesterday I was at 200 pounds and today I'm down to 198 pounds. I lost 2 pounds. I am glad that I am out of the 200s now. After all the exercises that I have done and the mowing the yard later on, I should be able to lose some more weight. I already took the dog for 2 walks for 15 minutes each, walk... Read more

  • Cool, but great day to walk

    4/22/2017 4:31:17 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    My husband and I cheered our daughter on to her marathon victory (won her age division) today. I took her special water to her at two locations on the course and my husband went to a third location. Because the finish was only a mile from our home, I was able to go in one direction to meet her at ... Read more

  • Gained 6 pounds

    4/21/2017 10:51:29 AM, by AUNTRENEE

    In the past couple of days I have gained 6 pounds. Very little exercise (none yesterday due to a sore foot) and poor choices in food, I would gain that much weight. I went from 194 pounds to 200 pounds. I am hoping to get some more exercising in soon so I can get my weight down. Especially when we a... Read more

  • Gotta Stay on track despite a couple added challenges!

    4/20/2017 10:05:10 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    Too much salt and not enough water led to a couple extra pounds. I know they will stop away, but I do frustrate myself when I know better. But, got news that my heart is not behaving and also I have a nerve in my leg that is misbehaving. So have work-up with internist on 5/4 and MRI on leg on 5/1... Read more

  • We are worth it

    4/19/2017 4:55:34 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    We are worth every healthy choice we make. When I make a choice that is not good for my body, my mind or my spirit I always deal with at least a little bit of regret. Each time I weigh the choice I am about to make I remind myself that I am worth far more than any bad choice I might yet make. Mor... Read more

  • Another Beginning

    4/18/2017 12:35:36 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    Now that I'm healing from surgery to repair my shattered right wrist I am ready to begin weight training again as well as increase cardio. I am eager to add muscle back that I know I've lost over the last few months. Illness and injury can really wreak havoc with our bodies. Wishing everyone a st... Read more

  • Just for today...

    4/17/2017 1:59:11 PM, by GRANDMABABA

    I'm learning maintenance and one thing that works for me is to not look too far ahead. I hold myself accountable just for today for nutrition, exercise, sleep, fun. But, one longer term challenge is when I know I will be off plan for a bit for vacation, guests, etc. For those planned times I work... Read more

    4/14/2017 7:35:25 PM, by BABY_GIRL69

    Good Friday to you Sparkfam! I am doing well and I gained about 15lbs over the winter season. So now I'm back at being active and since the kids got me a massage certificate last year and I went, I thought I'd try it again. So I had a Chinese massage done. It was a weird experience because they... Read more

I am still at 192 pounds. I was hoping that it would of been less but at least I didn'... Read more

  • Gained the 4 pounds but determined to get them back off

    4/10/2017 10:25:26 AM, by AUNTRENEE

    Well, I gained the 4 pounds that I lost back on. I had a few bad choices in foods yesterday, my sodium intake was higher than I wanted (even though it was under the amount that you need in a day but still it was high for me), and I didn't burn enough calories to accommodate the amount that I ate.

  • Got in plenty of exercising in today

    4/8/2017 7:16:28 PM, by AUNTRENEE

    I got in plenty of exercising in today. 4 walks with the dog for 15 minutes each, cleaned up the yard of sticks for 11 minutes (most of them I raked because there was too many of them to pick up), and an hour worth of push mowing the yard. So that equals 131 minutes and I went over my fitness points... Read more
