Eat Every Three Hours

Eat a little protein every three hours and you wont be hungry and you will start losing weight. I buy Oscar Mayer Deli Delights Shaved Turkey at Walmart. 6 slices are 45 calories and I use this for a snack at night too.

Zumba Gold with a hilarious 60 yr old instructor

Peggy in Santa Barbara is the greatest instructor! I could hardly dance because I was laughing so hard. It was the beginning of my new road to physical fitness!

Fitbit Trainer

I subscribed to the Fitbit Trainer, and it allows me to see the impact of the intensity of my exercise. My long dog walks don't burn many calories, but take a lot of time. When I have a specific CICO goal, Fitbit reads SP's Nutrition information and shows the gap. That prompted me to incorporate some intense exercise each day to make sure my exercise was paying off.

Fitbit Motivation

I am retired,diisabled (wheelchair-bound) and 69 yrs old. For my birthday in March, my daughter gave me a Fitbit. At first i was tracking less than 100 steps a day. After recovering from the shock, i am now tracking 1500 to 2500 steps a day and once in a while close to 3000. It has been a great motivator for me--and i will make it to 10000 steps per day.

Treat yourself to a personal trainer

I decided to spend the money previously wasted on rubbish food for putting toward sessions with a personal trainer at the gym and to treat myself to proper workout clothing. It has been money so well spent and as soon as I'm in my kit and enter the gym, I immediately feel as if I'm focussed and mean business. It really helps my mindset. The challenge in front of the trainer has spread to my challenging myself if I go alone or with my husband. I even work in front of the mirror now, too!

Wii Fit

In the comfort of my home I played Wii Fit daily. I lost a total of 22 pounds and had fun doing it. It was a slow but enjoyable lost. It doesn't feel like exercising.

Daily food tracking and exercise at least 4 times a week for one hour each time.

I use the free tools that are offered by SP, such as the Nutrition Tracker, Fitness Tracker and Community and SparkPage blogs and other aspects of the site . I also use the Diabetic App which helps me a lot with carb and sugar control, blood glucose numbers, medications,water, weight exercise, etc, very helpful to me! emoticon emoticon emoticon
