KATHY I came to this site in 2010 weighing 225 pounds. I must admit I never bothered about how I looked My DH and my kids adored me.
My WAKE UP CALL was type 2 Diabetes and that was when I looked for information in Barnes and Noble and there was THE SPARK, it was a best seller and I bought it. I was going to read it and take it back. Now it is in most libraries.
I had never used a computer I was given an old one from one of our sons.
I had diabetes, I was on medication. I had High blood pressure and high cholesterol. Those are all bad for the heart.
That was 4 years ago. Now I am 70 years old. I have always walked and always ate right except for ONE THING. I ate too much. If you can do some walking it strengthens and lubricates our joints. so that is good for us. EVEN more important I ate too large portions.
Now for 4 years I have tracked my food, everything and every day. It takes a bit of time but if you eat too much you gain weight. If you measure your foods you save money you eat less food you have it at another Meal . Now that is a win win situation
MY BOTTOM LINE IS. I am down 50 pounds and several sizes. BUT I do not need to take any medications for diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. This is NOT A DIET, This is a way of life. I feel great. I have no more indigestion. I sleep better and I look better.
YOU can do it. You and your DH are worth it to keep you healthy and happy,
Pat in Maine.
I FEEL Healthier every day with my Spark Tracker.
I will do it slowly I like it that way.
Toodle-ooo! and Toodle- Pip!
JUST DO IT!
Be mindful that happiness isn't based on possessions, power, or prestige, but on relationships with people we love and respect.
Remember that while money talks, Friendships sing and laugh out loud.
