Hi Olga!

I just came back onto spark myself! I also have an office job and like walking on my lunch hours. It helps with releasing some stress and to get some form of exercise in too!

New Westminster, BC (PST)

I'm always looking to meet more people! So drop on by and say hi!

Hi Olga.
Welcome back!
A little exercise is better than none. Getting in the walking at lunch is a great start.

Best of luck as you continue your Spark journey.
You can do it!

Hi, all. My name is Olga. I have not been active on SP for about 5 years. Several times I signed on hoping to stay and lose weight, but I was not able to keep up. So, I am trying again. I initially signed up with SP about 10 years ago. I lost almost 20 lbs back then (17-20) and kept off the weight for about 2 years. After that, I stated having daily migraine headaches and just could not exercise and think about ďhealthy foodĒ. When I have migraines, I crave junk food and comfort food. So, I not only put the weight I lost back on, I also added some additional lbs. My headaches are a little better now and so I have been trying to get back into the healthy rhythm. My cousinís daughter is getting married in Washington, DC in October and I would love to lose some weight by then.

I live in TX. I am married. I have 2 children, 16 year old son and 15 year old daughter. I work full time in an office, which means I sit for about 8 hours per day.

For the last few weeks, I have been trying to eat 1500 calories per day and I started walking at the mall on my lunch hour. I walk 30-40 minutes. I know itís not much, but itís better than nothing, right? Next week, I am hoping to start walking with my dog after work and walking on treadmill after dinner. I donít know if I will be able to do both. I am hoping walking at the mall during lunch will give me more energy for the rest of the day.

Hope to chat with you all soon.

It maybe too late to go back and make a new start, but it's not too late to make a new ending.

I eat to live. I don't live to eat.
