Even though you can't always find the exact item you can find something that gives you a general idea of what you are getting as calories. It may not always be exact but it will be close enough to help you analyze where changes are needed.

Though my back issues are not serious enough to warrant surgery, I have had enough backaches to know that care must be used when it comes to exercise. At one point I spent 6 weeks flat on my back in bed wondering if I would even walk again. Not fun!!

Carol, Nancy and Sharon,

Hello ladies and thank you for your posts. So far I am finding this website to be a good incentive, I just have to stick to my commitment!
I am watching the calories pretty well with the tracker, that sure does help me! I'm fudging a hair only because I can't find some things on the list, so I change the items to something related until I find the right calorie count! I'm also not as hungry as I expected myself to be, which is a good thing. I have to go slow on the exercise, but I'm going to try and work myself up. Back problems are something to be very careful with!

Have a great day! emoticon

Hi emoticon and emoticon to both of you.

Cantaloupe and watermelon are good snacking choices. They are sweet and don't have the fats that snacks like cake, cookies, and ice cream have. Just be careful of the portion sizes as too much of a good think also adds on the pounds. emoticon

Hi and welcome to you both! So glad you decided to join this team emoticon I can relate to loving carbs and loving snacks emoticon I have handled this by cutting back on my starchy carbs - which were sabotaging my weight loss efforts - and planning my "must have" evening snack(s) into my nutrition tracker every day. If you stay within your calorie range and keep a check on your % values of carbs, fats, and proteins by running your daily report every day, you can have your snack and be guilt free emoticon I love ice cream. I eat ice cream almost every evening as a snack. However, now instead of eating a huge bowl of full-fat, premium ice cream, I buy a good brand of slow churned ice cream with no sugar added. I keep the calories to between 90-120 per 1/2 cup and the sugars to 5g or less. I eat 1/2-1 cup (which I measure) and it is already figured into my daily tracker. emoticon Remember, this isn't some rigid "diet" to lose weight fast. This is a lifestyle plan to lose weight and keep it off emoticon We are developing a new relationship with food and re-educating ourselves regarding what to eat and how much to eat in order to live a slim and healthy life.

My best advice: 1) Use your nutrition tracker faithfully, every single day and for every single meal. It will keep you honest and accountable for your choices of food and the amounts you eat; 2) Find a few exercises/activities you actually enjoy doing and then do them 3-4X a week. If you enjoy the activity you will stick with it: 3) Stay active with your Spark Team(s). That is where you will get your encouragement, support, and motivation along the way; and, 4) try to have fun and enjoy this journey! If you make this your friend, you will hang in there and emoticon until you reach your destination emoticon

Looking forward to sharing info and experiences with you along the way emoticon

Thank You very much for the tip! I have a large garden and it is producing so right now I have an abundance of watermelon and cantaloupe that are my 'snacks' at the moment!

Hello... I am 51, french speaking and new to this too as I only joined a couple of hours ago. I'm still trying to find my way around..loll. I just read your post and wished to share my tip as I also like my piece of chocolate in the evening. To prevent myself from falling for sugar and sweets - sometimes a bowl of special K cereals loaded with fresh fruits such as berries and some skimmed milk - even in the evening does the job for me!! Good luck

I just discovered this site due to a Yahoo article that mentions it. Thank You Yahoo!!! So here I am, 55 year old wife, mother and grandmother that is about 45 pounds overweight. I have trouble doing many exercies due to a permanent back injury. I can walk, but prefer a treadmill so that I am home if I have trouble. But the incentive to get on it has been non-existent! I am a night-time snacker and my down fall is carbs and sweets. I'm hoping this site can help me do much better!
