NANA - - Welcome to Spark People. You've come to the right place! We are a group of people who either are or have been where you are now. You're not alone.
First off, I notice that you have not set up your Spark Page. I would advise you to do that so that people can "Friend" you, send you Spark Goodies to help encourage you etc etc etc. You can do this by going to My Trackers (click) and scroll down to Spark Points. Scroll down to One Time Challenge. Under that topic you will see Create My Spark Page. Click there and do accordingly.
Eat your 3 meals a day plus your 2-3 snacks a day. The snacks will help your BS to stay more even and also will keep you from over eating at each meal. You may snack as late as you need as long as you stay within your calorie allowance. NEVER go anymore than 4-5 hours without eating something - - thus, the importance of an evening snack to help you keep from have a hypoglycemic crash during the night. Drink your 8+ glasses of calorie free beverages (water, coffee, tea, crystal light, diet pop) and get your 8 hours of sleep each night - this is the amount of hours needed for your body to rejuvenate itself - thus helping you to have more energy and to lose weight.
Set small goals for yourself; something that you know you will be able to obtain such as 10% of your total weight loss - NOT your total weight you want/need to lose or you will become discouraged. One day at a time and one step at a time.
We are here for you because YOU ARE WORTH IT!!!!
Have fun and enjoy your journey.
One Day At A Time Dear Jesus!!!
Not looking at how many # to go but back and how many #s I've already lost!!!
