WELCOME to HEALTHY living, We are here for you and your kids. There is a Spark for kids too. Even a family Spark.
There is really no need to cook different meals. If you are serving meals to your family it should be healthy for them as well as yourself. Make the meal. Think about it and MEASURE your portions.
Overly big portions, going back for more because you made too much are often the problem. I call them PLANNED over meals so I can get two meals at a time One for today and made over the next day. Use is as leftovers. I am 70 years young, I track my meals and I love to walk and exercise. Talk with the kids about eating healthy and staying healthy. It is as important as the other conversations you have with the kids. Go for it you can do it. Health is wealth in my humble opinion. We should treasure good health. Pat in Maine.
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.

may GOD bless your positive efforts I am 65 and care for my 90 yr young mother . She eats like a teenager: pizza, ice cream, candy. Since Mother's Day I do not eat sugar, wheat, dairy or fast food with 1 exception I allow my taco fix at Chipotles the Organic fresh fast food once a week. Preparing your food is the only way to know what is in it and to control the flavor! You will find many quick easy fabulous meal ideas here

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Welcome! All it takes is a little determination and a good plan. If you have those the rest will fall into place. Good luck.
The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.--Socrates ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ *~*~*~*~*~*~ The only person you need to be better than is the person you were yesterday.

Hi I'm 46 years young, a mother of two young boys and a college student. 4 years ago I started college and neglected my health. I relied on fast foods for a great part of those 4 years. I gained 40 pounds in four years and now I'm having a difficult time losing the weight plus I have high blood pressure. I made it my mission to jump start my metabolism during summer vacation. I have all the exercise equipment I need at home and have the determination at this time but it's hard cooking two menus.. I was browsing online, looking for kale recipes and found an announcement for SparkPeople. I love all it has to offer, so let's see how it works out for me.
