My goal for week one is not to be a "picker" . I am retired from the food industry and still have the old habits of sampling. I must get over that!

my first goal is to get below the 280 Mark

--- I haven't been down there in years --- I get close and then start back up the scale.

in the past when things are going well --- I'm on here --- sparkin' all over the place. When I stumble or slip --- I kind of hide --- just just slide all over the place. It's time to stay out in the open --- and not lose ground again.

I'm pretty consistent about tracking food & getting 5+ fruit & veggie servings daily, but I'm terrible about skipping meals then getting too hungry & going over calorie range. It happens at least twice a week. I'm still losing, but I'd love to get more consistent at eating regularly so I don't get too hungry, low energy or blow it.

Eat more veggies. Incorporate snacks at even intervals. Stay within range. emoticon emoticon

I want to stay within my calorie range and learn to eat in moderation. I don't want to completely eliminate anything. I want to eat more veggies, fruits aren't a problem, I love them.

My goal is to lose at least a pound a week and not feel tired all the time. I want to have my old energy back and be able to do things on my own again. Due to heart problems, my exercise is limited and so what I eat has to be my mail goal.

I have been tracking food and nutrition very well. But I find myself falling back into non healthy foods and sometimes a sweet binge, teetering over my 1500 calories. So my goal is to eat fruit instead of a sweet or salty unhealthy snack. My fruits and vegetables have been restricted to mostly salads or maybe a piece of fruit.

Goal: 3 fruits, preferably replacing sweet/salty urge
Goal: ID stressful urge, and replace with prayer, writing, hot bath or drawing.
Goal: 1 fruit smoothie this week

Edited by: JOY2425 at: 6/2/2015 (21:21)
Everytime I have a "self-bashing thought" (mad at myself because I failed an attempt to reach a goal)I will find 3 positive things I did to replace that thought! This way I will change my thinking and remove one aspect of emotional eating. Soooooo....

1 negative thought = 3 positive thoughts!

Hope I can bypass 10:00 p.m. snacks. My breakfast is too light and lunch is late afternoon. No accounting for this ridiculous regimen. Both husband and I are retired and I am cookbook junkie. I think I get full looking at delicious pictures of prepared meals.

By evening, we are not starving, my husband is a snacker, but not overweight.

So my goal is to be more consistent with three balanced meals and hide his kettle chips.

I hit a plateau the last couple of week and my chiropractor said something to me that I found very encouraging. He said that although you don't see loss on the scale you can see it in your body by how your clothes fit and in measuring parts of your body. It reminded me that muscle weighs more than fat...so don't get discouraged, just keep on working your program and know that what you are doing will pay off in the long run. Have a great week!

My goal is to stop skipping meals. I am a big one for not eating breakfast in the morning or not eating lunch. I am getting better at it but I still find myself at 6pm realizing I did not eat any meals that day until dinner. I'm hoping this will help me do that.

Eating more nutrient dense foods is the foundation of my health plan, so I figured this challenge should be supportive. I'm hoping to make some Spark friends and learn some new things! I am learning to love veggies and I only want that love to grow!

I just signed up for this challenge tonight but I had already started on Monday to make some new goals and plans for the next 30 days. I had my follow up dr. appt. with an endocrinologist to learn I am to start on a thyroid medication. I asked him advice which was good & bad. He wanted me to not drink so much water (I try to do 8-10 cups a day & more if I do a lot of cardio or yardwork). Not sure if that's a good one since my main fluid I drink is WATER. I sip throughout the day and limit myself to 2 cups of coffee a day. He did say I should aim for 2000 calories burned by exercise a week. So, I thought this was a doable goal for myself.

I have completed the Meta Small Changes Challenge then I just finished the Vionic's Walkabout Challenge. These kept me accountable, motivated, tracking, and moving forward where I feel I've been blundering. Since I don't seem to have a problem with exercise and see improvements in my fitness level the reason the scale doesn't move has got to be with my eating options. Time to educate and put it in action.

This week's goal for me is to achieve burning those 2000 or more calories, eating within range (which I reset my weight loss goal to a small realistic one to aim for ) and learn where I need to be in calories and choices to feel full and have the energy needed to move with fun & purpose and possible see the scale moving downward or inches/clothes feeling loose.

I will learn how to better measure, judge and do portions control to stay in range by the end of this chalenge. I will learn how to incorporate healthier food choices, utilize some great recipes and plan ahead snacks. If I choose to eat a "treat" it has to be in portion control and not an every day or week occurence. I hope to learn a great deal from others who have learned to eat up and still slim down. emoticon emoticon

My goal is to eat a greater variety of vegetables consistently. I eat lots of fruit, but seem to get in a rut when it comes to vegetables, eating the same ones over and over. To do this I need to plan ahead as I live 30 minutes from a grocery store and need to stock up with a weeks worth at a time. When summer gets here it will be easier as I grow a lot of vegetables.

Wise choices each day will get me where I want to be.

I officially started this challenge yesterday and, after just one day of eating less and eating healthier, I'm feeling so much better already. I stayed within my calorie range even though I had one extra spoonful of dinner. One spoonful is a huge improvement over an extra plate full. On to Day 2...

My goal for this challenge is to plan ahead, track food, stay with my calorie range and look for opportunities to add more vegetables to my meals.

Staying within my calorie range has been my biggest challenge these days, however, I'm ready and willing to make it a priority.

I'm beginning my first week on Monday. My goals are to pre-plan my evening meals for the week, track all nutrition and continue my 30 minute exercise routine at least 5 times next week. I really need to break my bad habit of nibbling all the time so I will plan for 3 portion controlled snacks a day with popcorn as my evening snack.

Hi today is my first day of the challenge. My goal is to lose almost 40 pounds by the end of the summer. That's about 8 months. I am hoping this challenge will point me in the right direction. I have a lot of bad habits to change. I am going to try eating 5-6 small meals throughout the day. I have never tried this and it seems like a good way to start.

Thanks SOMAR - Another thing I have been realizing this week is that putting all my planned food into my tracker first thing in the morning really helps! It is partly psychological because I know what's coming in that next meal.

I'm new to this challenge and like someone else I struggle to get the last 5-10 lbs. (mostly belly fat) off. I definitely need to get off the salt, so any suggestions there would be helpful. I'm tracking everyday and exercising most days. Thank goodness for it or I would be in far worse shape. I'm trying really hard to get through the holiday season without packing on any more weight!

I started this challenge the day after Thanksgiving so I can really concentrate on eating well between holidays. It seems one day of letting go and it is so hard to get back on track, for me. After having lost 30 - 35 pounds, I have been stuck at 5 - 10 above my goal for 3 years! I seem to be a waffle. Do great for a time, then just get sick and tired of messing with it - but I haven't ever quit, just lose my focus from time to time. These short term challenges seem to help me turn it around again.

So, my goal is to get back to my pre-Thanksgiving weight by Christmas - that's 3 pounds down.

I am slowly taking weight off. It was so much easier when I had a job and biked to work daily. I am also struggling due to having to cook for my sig other who is not a veggie. Finding things he likes means I have to either make two dishes or sacrifice my goals. How does everyone else do it? I think that is my biggest hurdle, finding balance between us.

So my goals are to be able to have meals that both of us like that are healthy.
To find ways to incorporate more fruits and veggies into my diet and eliminate a starch heavy diet.
To find a happy balance between two food preferences.

My reason for joining this team is to get back to the reason I joined Spark which was to get healthy and to stay off meds.
Goals:
1. Work on nutrition as well as calories.
2. Think of snacks as a part of my daily plan.
3. Learn to eat new fruits and veggies.

Starting over again... went three days in week 3 of not meeting my goal. I thought this would be a snap. I am flabbergasted over how EZ it is to not eat veggies and still rack up a LOT of calories. When I do eat at least 5 servings it is difficult to go over the calorie budget--it's like it's all tied together. Veggies up, calorie load down--veggies down, calorie load up. Amazing!

I just have to budget more time for meals. I don't really like canned or frozen that much, so I am trying to use fresh, but I think I need to go the canned or frozen route as an emergency backup plan.

I want to be successful at meeting the smaller goal of this challenge (learning so much and enjoying the changes) so I can better meet the larger goal of getting to my ideal weight. Thanks to all of you for being here!

Hi I am new here. My goals are different to others, I think. My goals are to try to eat in the middle of my calorie range. Lately I have been 2-300 calories OVER my limits. ANother goal is to eat 5 freggies daily. I seem to be able to have 2 or 3 fruits but often go without any vegetables, like today. I also want to continue to work on 3 days of 10 minutes of exercise a day.

I stopped tracking exercise her for a while to make sure I am staying within 1200 to 1550 calories a day when I track my food. well working hard at it, the body just needs to start responding again. lol.

keep on trucking
