I continue towards my goal of 40lbs by 9/4. I lost 5 in Feb but I didn't start until mid-month, so that's good. Even though the remaining 35 lbs spread over 6 months is 6 lbs a month, I know I need to be dropping more in the beginning months. I always hear that the last 5/10 lbs come off slowly so I need to get ahead of the game
I've stopped tracking food and fitness in SP and have returned to my paper based system. I spend far less time doing it which is a great incentive for me. Plus, my paper process doesn't calculate calories. Given to me by my renal dietician, it focuses on the number of servings per type of food; if I eat according to her plan, I end up eating between 1200-1500 calories.
I stopped tracking fitness. What is the point for me? Only to gain Spark Points and I have thousands of those. If I follow her diet, get at least 4 hours a week of cardio and strength training three times a week, I will lose weight. (4 hours is my minimum - I want to so more.)
Those who think they have no time for a healthy lifestyle will sooner or later will have to find time for illness.
