Would you say that you are a perfectionist?

Yes!
No
Only when it comes to certain things
Other (Share it in the comments!)

In the past, I would have said yes but I'm learning I don't have to be perfect!
I do try to do my best.

Love it or Loathe it: Greek Yogurt

Love it!
Loathe it!
Haven't tried it

I really don't care for the texture-- but I will keep trying it and who knows, I might learn to like it!
It happened with dark chocolate!

Which of the following is your biggest source of stress?

The economy
Family responsibilities
Health problems affecting family
Housing costs
Job stability
Money
Personal health concerns
Personal safety
Relationships
Work

For me at this time in my life, it's figuring out where my life should be headed and learning to live alone and being responsible for everything without the help of my DH.

How important is it that you listen to music during a workout?

Very important-- I can't work out without it!
Neutral-- I can work out with or without it
Not important-- I hardly ever listen to music when I work out

It's very important for me. If I don't like the music, I tend to not work very hard.

Do you plan your meals each week before you go shopping?

Always
Sometimes
Never

I go to the store as I need things. And I plan my meal each day as I decide what I'm hungry for. It's definitely different now that I'm alone.

What advice would you give to a new SparkPeople member?

Log everything you eat into the nutrition tracker
Read the articles and emails to learn more
Use the message boards for answers and support
Utilize the fitness demos, plans, and tracker
Write in your SparkPeople blog or journal
Try SparkPeople's healthy recipes

My first advice would be to explore the site and to be sure to use the trackers and then to find a few teams that would support and motivate you.

Did you ask friends or family members to support and motivate you to lose weight?

No, I have kept my goals private.
No, but I do plan to ask them for support.
Yes, I asked but they don't help much.
Yes, they help me stay accountable and on track.

I keep my goals private but do like the support and motivation I get here on Sparks!

I measure progress without the scale by...

How my clothes fit
Using other numbers (body fat, BP, etc.)
Monitoring my energy levels
Assessing my emotions and self-esteem
None of these- I only use the scale.

How my clothes fit

What small change has given you the biggest results?

10-minute workouts
Portion control
Tracking my food
Drinking more water
Taking the stairs
Something else not listed here
I don't think small changes really work

For me the change that has had the best results is not eating out near as much.

Are you a fan of NBC's "The Biggest Loser" TV show?

Yes
No

I watch it but think it is very unrealistic! I feel it gives people false information. I would like to see what has happened with those contestants!

How do you get back on track after a binge?


I have learned that when I really want something, to go ahead and eat a small portion and for me, that prevents a binge.

A new month is beginning and it's time to think about how you are doing with your goals. Is it time to make a change or are things going good?

If you had to choose, would you rather exercise in extremely hot weather or extremely cold weather?

For me, I usually exercise inside regardless of the weather! I do NOT even walk outside if the weather is too hot or cold or if it's raining or snowing!

When it comes to weight loss, how does competition (such as weight-loss challenges or wagers) affect you?

I thrive on healthy competition--it really helps me reach my goals!
I tend to shrink away from competition--I like to do things at my own pace
Competition tends to make me too obsessive, so I try to stay away from it
Other

Usually I don't like them. I prefer to do things on my own

Would you support a tax on soda as a means to discourage its consumption?

I don't think a tax would keep those who want a soda from having them.

As part of your weight-loss plan, do you eat foods such as fat-free dairy (excluding skim milk); fiber-enhanced, low-carb bread products; or artificial sweeteners?

Yes (at least daily)
Sometimes (weekly or monthly)
No (never)

I do use artificial sweeteners since I'm diabetic. But other things I eat in moderation.

Both
Neither

For me, it would be eating " badly"

What's more motivating about losing weight?

Looking better
Being healthier and living longer

For me, it's being healthier and living longer. Looking better is a side effect!

Do you use a journal to help you reach your goals?

Yes, a very detailed one that I update regularly
Yes, a basic one that I update occasionally
No, I've tried to keep a journal but can't stick with it
No, I've never used a journal to help me reach goals

No, I've never used a journal--I'm not a writer!

Do rising health care costs worry you?

Yes, it's a big stressor for me
Yes, a little bit
Not really--I'm pretty healthy

It worries me a bit with what the government could do with Medicare

Be honest: Do you secretly (or openly) judge people based on their weight?


I have upon occasion but my thoughts are usually wishing they could lose weight for health sake. And then I have a talk with me and say don't judge as you still need to lose!

With the rising food prices, are you cooking more at home?

I am cooking at home but the cost has nothing to do with it. It's because I'm now alone. But the costs of food in the grocery store is really rising, too.
