You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.
There are so many of us who have come back. We start off and some of us do very well and then life gets in the way and we allow the stresses of daily living derail us. Fortunately, we are all smart enough to see the value of this program and we return. WELCOME BACK to all who have returned.

Hi there and I love WV - used to live in VA back in the late 70's. So glad you are back on Spark. I also came back in May of this year absolutely determined to make it this time - new me, new attitude. I've been on and off Spark for years but under different name before and I can't even remember what it was - My problem has always been my starchy carb intake and before I used to try to find ways to continue to stuff my face with these things while staying within my calorie range As a result I never really lost any weight and just couldn't figure out why Now, I'm not that dumb but I was going through the motions and fooling myself - unwilling to make the necessary changes to get to where I wanted to be. The Good LORD gave me a boot in the pants a couple of times with major health issues and after He brought me through those, I finally got it through my thick skull that you have to put something into anything you do and stop expecting miracles because you are unwilling to bend. I'm doing well now - lost 10 1/2 lbs. so far and have about 15-18 lbs. to go. I am a slow loser - but that's okay. Glad to hear you enjoy walking. I always hated regimented exercise but I found that if you can find one or two activities you really enjoy doing, you are more likely to stick with those then trying to do what someone else tells you that you should do. My favorite is water exercise and I have a couple of others I do also. What I have learned through trial and error is that the formula for reaching your goals is simple: use your Nutrition Tracker faithfully and read your daily reports to make sure you are eating too much of one thing (like carbs ); find an activity you enjoy and get up and do it 3-4 X a week; stay active with your Spark Teams because they will keep you motivated; and, most of all, have fun with this and enjoy every small success!
The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. Philippians 4:6 TLSB
I'm waving at you from wild and wonderful West Virginia. From what I see there is lots of positive energy and support going on around here. My story is the same as most of you probably in that this struggle with food is always a challenge. I must say that it is always a learning and reevaluating experience.
I'm Grammy to 2 beautiful grandbabes, retired and loving life (perhaps I've loved food toooo much), find many creative outlets, such as beading (making tapestries/pics) with seed beads, needlepoint, and crochet and jewelry making. Life is good. Why oh why must I fight this constant food battle? Guess that is God's way of teaching me and keeping me honest.
I'm returning to SP after being gone for a couple of years. I've since had heart surgery and am recovering very well. I am a walker, supposedly wearing my ped every day. I've been a bit lax the past couple of months and thus, knew I needed some extra motivation by being here.
Sugar/jjcarbs are my biggest challenge. I'll be taking them on with your help. I am committing to walking today. Dusted my pocket ped off and am ready for action. Sugar, well, I can not have any or I'[m lost.
I'm off to check out posts and your spark pages. Looking forward to getting to know you and your journey to good health together. You can count on my support. I make a good cheer leader....it's all that sugar!!
