Welcome to the team! Most of us seem to have some problem that slows down our weight loss but we keep on plugging - and ultimately losing. We're happy to have you with us - you can succeed and so can we.
Happy Valentine's Day! and kudos to you and your wife. My husband is also home while I go to work!
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
My name is Don and I restarted Spark people on Jan. 01, 2013. The Biggest Loser airs on Monday, so I weigh in on Tuesdays at 10:00 am after getting my wife off to work. So far I am averaging losing 1% of my bodyweight every week, with the exception of a couple of weeks the end of January. Darn that Flu!! Gained the first week and lost 0.5% the second. My doctor says I am "Insulin Resistant" or pre-diabetic so I follow a high protein, low-carb and low-fat plan. Exercise is hard for me as I have COPD and can't breathe very well, but I do what I can. I tell him "I'm still kicking, but I'm not raising much DUST!"
