This Sparked Me!

After having a couple of days of not logging in, I realized that rather than looking at logging in SP as a big task or something that requires a lot of time/effort just treat it like maybe your Facebook or email. When you check your emails, do a quick login to SP, blog/post/browse/read as per your convenience and whenever possible multiple times a day. When it seems like a small casual task you wont dread doing it.

And we all know how much being regular on SP helps!

    I am thinking more about staying on track. Rethinking the
things I eat. Need to think more about serving size. Need to
get connected to more people. emoticon

    I up and on early so I touch base with everyone. My friends & family and my Spark friends I've made on here actually do feel like family. Everyone is just plain nice here. It seems like there's a shingle hanging outside that says "Wanted" all nice people!!

    I am new to SP today. I really need to lose twenty ponds and return to the person I was before I buried both parents, lost my husband, sold my home, moved to another and changed careers in the economic slump. Some folks do Retail Therapy, I did Food Therapy. I am now settled, happy, back on track, have great friends and am doing my art again. I JUST WANT TO WEAR THE WARDROBE I OWN THAT REFLECTS THE TRUE ME AND FITS A SEVERAL SIZES SMALLER PERSON! LOL emoticon

    My first day on sp I put in all the food I ate that day. omg I had no idea I was consuming that much sodium (3053) and calories(1899). Never mind how low all my protein potassium calcium and magnesium counts were. I like being in control now. I have my 11 yr old grandson to answer to now because we put in my food together. He reminded me I forgot the beans and the salsa today.....thanks
We also do the exercises together. He is quite an athlete and I want to see him as an adult on some NHL team!

    With advanced Osteoarthritis I believe the only way to relieve some of the pain is to get the weight off removing some of what my joints have to bear. This is probably the most important diet I have been on.

    I really like the web site, but your app is not so good. I wish I could look at my page from my phone app. But either way it has helped me stay on track with my calorie counting! emoticon

    It is a slow process , but I am doing a life style change not a diet. I am very proud of myself in some areas. My water intake is getting better everyday. Not at 8 glasses a day, but I am drinking 4/5. I am moving around more . Maybe not everyday, butat least 4 times a week. I will do anything from walking outside to using my gazelle to doing jumping jacks/ crunches to even visiting local gyms with my friends to see what they offer. Having a little bit of a hard time with food. I do really well all day then at night I need a snack. But not a good one. It will come!!! No self control the last couple days, but like I said this is a life style change. I have only lost one pound. This time around I am not dwelling on the amount of weight lost. I feel good and for the most part I am proud of myself. I know in the past I have not succeeded because I have compared myself to everyone else . And started feeling sorry for myself. That others has have lost the weight fast and I am very slow.

    I am trying to log in each morning to focus my day before my good intentions get hijacked by lack of planning. There is much to learn on the site, so I am taking baby steps...but starting the day by logging in really helps me focus on my goals

    Thanks for showing.

    ALANE121- I also have struggled with losing weight due to a low thyroid condition. You will find the SP calorie tracker really helpful and the daily nutritional reports that keep us on track with eating healthy foods to support thyroid function and generally good health. I did an online research of foods that support thyroid function and always include those in my daily intake. Otherwise, I focus generally on eating a balanced diet and feel better now that I have eliminated nutrient deficiencies. Consistent exercise 4-5 X per week is another huge factor in weight loss and maintaining a strong metabolism. Good luck with your journey! See you in the chat rooms! emoticon
BERNHO57 1/5/2014 1:44:00 PM

    I just joined yesterday. You who have said there's a lot to take in are sooo right. I'm not as computer savvy as I need to be. I think I will journal my calories in a notebook that I can carry with me. I lost weight years ago on Weight Watchers. I really liked having the group support. That's one reason I joined Sparkpeople to help me lose weight and get my BP down so I can stop the meds, Here's to a successful journey emoticon
