THIS WORKS. WENT ON WEEKS CRUISE DID NOT GAIN A POUND.

my sister walks 15,000 steps a day at 63 years old and has lost 105 pounds. she went from a size 24 to a size 10. all her health issues dropped off as the 105 pounds dropped off.

i gave up grain and sugary products and have lost 44 pounds at age 60. i went from a size 18 to a size 10 shorts and medium tops from a 1 or 2x.

we are both still loosing weight until we reach our goal

emoticon Hi and emoticon to the team. SP is an awesome site with so much to offer. Have you looking into SparkRecipes here on the site? You can even put in your own recipes and it will calculate the nutrition information for you. You can use recipes from SparkRecipe until you are able to get the Spark Cookbook.

Hi, and welcome emoticon Sorry this is late in coming but I don't always seem to get an alert when someone new posts a message or when I have Spark Mail. So glad to have you on the team! Yes, Spark is a great site and it works! Using the Nutrition Tracker is probably one of the most important things you can do to ensure success. It keeps you honest and accountable for your food choices. As far as exercise - walking the dog is great - the important thing is to find a few exercises/activities you ENJOY and then do them 3-4X a week. If you find things you actually like, and look forward to, doing you will stick with them emoticon Try to stay active with your Spark Team(s) because this is where you will get support and encouragement as you move toward you goals emoticon . Mostly have fun with this and don't worry about losing fast. This is one time the old cliche "slow and steady wins the race" really does apply emoticon . Losing at the slow and steady pace give you the chance to learn how to change you old bad relationship with food into a new and healthier one - and your body will stop craving the junk if you give it the time to adjust emoticon Good luck emoticon

Thanks so much for the nice welcome, and words of encouragment. This week has given me some distractions which would normally make me say, "whatever" I will start tomorrow. That's how the last 8 months went by! This week I have been journaling, using the tracker, and best of all preparing my meals and snacks before my work day. SP is awesome! I am learning where my weaknesses are, and how to arrange my day so they don't get in my way.
Have a great day!

Thanks for the welcome, and congrats on your weightloss! Central time must mean you are 5 hours ahead of me until you fall back. We don't have a time change here. I am trying to learn my way around this site. I see you have the Spark cookbook. I will have to check that out. I have been coming up with my own recipes, but I know a cookbook would have lots more to offer. Thanks for writing, have a great evening.

Hi,
I joined Spark last week. I have been using the iphone app to track my food and fitness. I guess I have to hop online more often since there is team support. emoticon
I exercise alone unless I walk my dog. If there is anyone on Kauai that would like to hook up, I live on the eastside. Send me a message. Thanks again for the warm welcome. Looking forward to chatting with folks.
