Man sacrifices his health in order to make money.

Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health.

And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present;

The result being that he does not live in the present or the future;
he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.
~The Dalai Lama

Hi, Samantha and welcome emoticon I was on and off Spark several times. Mostly because I wasn't really serious about changing my eating habits and working on a new lifestyle. When I came back this last May, I was determined to get to my goal this time so I have been tracking my food faithfully every single day. I also got smart this time and started studying my daily reports. I quickly found out that I was sabotaging my weight loss by eating way to many starchy carbs. I cut back on bread, potatoes, pasta, rice, etc. and now I'm doing much better. While I don't believe in eliminating any food group from my diet, I know I was the Queen of Portion Distortion - I ate way to much at every meal. At first it was hard to cut back because my body was used to these ginormous portions, but within about 2 months that totally changed and now I can't eat nearly as much as I used to. emoticon If you use your nutrition tracker it will keep you honest with yourself and accountable for the choices you make. Take a look at the report you pull on the Nutrition Tracker page - on the right hand side about two-thirds of the way down you'll see "See Today's Full Report". Click on that and you'll get a spread sheet with all your nutrients for the day and there are two pie charts on the bottom - one shows Spark's recommended % of protein, carbohydrates, and fat, and the other shows your actual % based on what you entered in your tracker that day. That is where I found out my % of carbs was way out of line emoticon Good luck to you and your boyfriend emoticon and let us know when the "engagement" happens emoticon

Hello everyone! My name is Samantha and I am 23 years old. I am a vegetarian and I am a paramedic. I work A LOT. I work something called a 24/48. I work for 24 hours straight and have 48 hours off. It makes for a lot of bored eating and days where I can't exercise. I grab a lot of carb food because it's fast. I have put on a lot of weight and I am unhappy. I have started p90x and trying to eat less carbs and better portion control to lose some weight. My boyfriend and I are both trying to lose weight and get in shape. A big motivation for our weight loss is that we plan to get engaged afterwards...it's a good goal to work towards! I Hope to get some messages I'd love to hear people's advice and stories! :)
