My week one completed as well as a day of cooking healthy snacks for the lunches for the week ahead. I also made sourdough breads, cheese, yogurt, and 3 dinners that are now in the freezer and I pre packaged portions of oatmeal and granola for this week's breakfasts as well as prebagged my fillings for hubs and my green smoothies. It's been a busy weekend.

Do not ever let anyone tell you your not good enough. Find within yourself the center that makes you rise above all else and you will find true happiness. Everything else plays second and it all falls into line as it should be.

I'm trying to take a few more steps on the way to health. So far I've been eating really healthy for breakfast and lunch, but supper has me over eating and indulging. I'm hoping that having some accountability and new recipes will help me change some evening habits.

Hello! I've lost 100 lbs (gained a few back over the holidays), but I HATE to cook. I thought maybe joining this group would encourage me a little with my goal to cook more often and make it healthy. My husband has just been diagnosed as diabetic, so I need to do it for us both!

I heard a guy at the gym say, "I don't feel my age. This is why we do this." So inspiring!

Hi! It's my 62nd day with SparkPeople and I'm also a member of SparkCoach Team. It seems that I'm addicted to challenges, just finished Diabetes W/L even though I'm not diabetic, but my husband and my best friend are.
I'm a retired senior person, so obviously I know how to cook but, I'd like to get all the tools necessary to help my determination to acquire a new healthy lifestyle. I'm sure I will learn something here also, and very excited to join.

Hi! My name is Bekah. I've been on Spark since 2010, but didn't get serious about it until last winter. I lost 30 lbs last winter, and became extremely ill in March. (I missed almost 2 weeks of work and was using an inhaler every 2 hours,) with 2 hospitalizations in June and July. I see a lung specialist next month to get to the bottom of why my asthma is not under control. During those months, I gained the 30 back, plus 10. So, my goal is to lose 50 lbs by next July. I want to do this by cooking more and eating out less. This will be extremely difficult. My housing is less than ideal. I do not have a stove/oven. But, I do have a roaster and a hot plate. So, I can do some cooking. I've been making out menus on Fridays or Saturdays and going grocery shopping on Saturday then taking Saturday and Sunday to cook my meals for the week and place them in the freezer for the week. I have found several delicious recipes on Sparkrecipes.com!

new to team, I thought I would be spontaneous by only thinking & purchasing 3 days of food at a time- but just the opposite happens! I hope challenging a menu out of myself and actually sticking to a week l-o-n-g meal plan works for me!

Hi I'm Sharon - I don't like cooking but I am the main cook in our family and cook nearly every night. I like to try different recipes which don't always turn out that great but sometimes I find some great recipes. My husband is borderline diabetic so I'm trying to cook healthier meals that will benefit both of us. Plus my sister-in-law challenged me to lose weight with her and we have been going back and forth on SparkPeople for the last 2 years. It's time to get it done. Good luck to you all on your Healthy Cooking Challenge.

I am Bev, and I am a newbie on this site. I was recently diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes, so I, too, need to reconsider what and how I eat. My goal is to bring my A1C back in line by the time of my next appointment in November. I already cook home meals for the family about 2x a week, but I wanted to make sure that they (the meals and my family) are as healthy as possible. Thanks for listening and I look forward to being on this site.

I am Mary - I love to cook, but I have Type 2 diabetes so I am having to re-think what I cook and what I use. These healthy makeover recipes look like they will fit in with my food allowances. My problem is not sugar - it is potatoes, pasta and other foods that overindulge in when I eat them

Looking forward to doing just that!

Hi, I'm not new to spark people but I am new to the team. I eat home more than eating out but tend to grab "quick" meals that I can pop in the microwave when I get home rather than cook for myself. My husband works evenings and my kids usually eat at their grandparents because of my work hours.

One step at a time towards my goals...my success.

Hi! New to Spark People, and this is my first challenge. I started my weight loss journey 5 years ago and did quite well - I lost 84 pounds in 3 years (hitting 3, 6 month plateaus along the way) and then stalled - 2 years not a pound lost or gained. Then I gained 30 pounds back and I'm not sure how or why. I'm following SB and working out 3 times a week and trying to squeeze a walk in on 2 others days. I know a major downfall for me is a lack of time so I'm hoping for lots of tips and tricks to make meal times easier.

So glad I have found this challenge. I didn't think I needed to learn much here, but I am learning lots, and enjoying the challenge. My name is Lesley, and I'm a 56 year old full-time housewife (homemaker) living in the UK with my husband. I haven't interacted too much with the SparkPeople community because I'm a little on the introverted side. But I hope I can be a bit more involved from now on.

Good Morning,

I have used sparkpeople and had success a few years ago. Have put on a few winter lbs that I am looking to lose before summer gets here. So back sparking. I love to cook and try new recipes so this time thought I would join a food group.
What thread is the most active in this group?
Looking forward to getting to know everyone:)



want it...work for it...earn it...enjoy it...you deserve it!!!
