This is so true!!!!! I love Spark People and especially the support and encouragement. It is so great to be able to blog your heart out and someone will read it and respond. You never know who you are going to connect with. You are NEVER alone when you are a Sparker!!!!
I love sharing my story.....my trip to better health....I still have 40 pounds to lose...but I know I will do it. I have taken off 110 pounds and I feel 100 % better. I never have felt like I have been on a DIET. Nope...I just eat less. For example, tonight we went to a friends house for a social activity and dessert. We both weigh in in the morning at TOPS....so I took my zip lock bag and said....if you don't mind I will take my dessert to go and eat it for breakfast tomorrow after weigh in. She thought that was a great idea. I had just brushed my teeth before leaving home (that helps me not want to lose the "squeaky clean feeling" and I carried a couple of pieces of sugar free candy ...........just in case and some sugar free gum. Several people saw me carrying around my brownie in a zip lock bag and they said what a great idea.
I eat anything and everything......I just watch portions and timing. If these are tips that are helpful to someone great....because there is nothing new under the sun....we just share and grow healthier.
P.S. I will be 62 on my birthday in April and I want to be on t.v. or a magazine with my weight loss story to be able to help someone who thinks their weight is hopeless.
Actually my weight recorder at TOPS ask me to enter the "Most Improved Beauty Contest" for TOPS so I am completing the story, pictures and paperwork.
