I like this challenge, because it has variety. I like to change things up. The spice of life. I definitely agree about joining forums. I belong to several forums and it has been a wonderful experience. I have been given a lot of support and made online friends who I keep in touch with almost every day. For those sparkers who are new, I'm telling you having this opprtunity is a gift that 'm grateful for. t's not every day I meet caring, giving and supportive people. Find yourself a forum that fits your needs and lifestyle and jump into it. Make a commitment and keep it. You will not regret it. You will especially get a lot out of it if you stick with it for a few months. It is then and only then you will see a change in yourself. It's what you put into it you reap the rewards from it.
For those members that are having trouble with food selection this is what I have done and recommend to you. When you go to the store to shop bring the grocery list you get from SparkPeople. Make sure you plan ahead and select healthy and clean foods. Do not buy prepared foods, diet foods, or processed foods. These are the foods that will ensure failure. If you want to succeed don't make excuses saying real food is too expensive or too time consuming to make, because it's simply not true. In terms of expense, yes real food cost a little more, but if you make two meals out of it or freeze some of it, use coupons and don't shop at expensive stores like Publix or Winn Dixie you can make it work for you. I shop with coupons for sale items in different stores to make it work for me. akes 20 minutes to grill a lean hamburger with one slice of whole grain bread. It takes 10 minutes to put one a processed one in the microwave. Big difference? I don't think so. What I'm trying to say if you don't buy it you can't eat it! Sometimes I have to make a special meal just for me. It's worth it! Don't you think so?
Anyone who needs a friend or resources do friend me. I welcome you to.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! :)
