With men it is impossible, but not with GOD; for with GOD all things are possible. Mark 10:27

Welcome to my Spark Corner !!

I am here to shed off those last few pounds and keep them off there by living a fit and healthy lifestyle.. I need all your encouragement in doing this..

My mantra is moderation and eating healthy... And drink atleast 8 glasses of water... And above all being consistent.. I'm not perfect but something is better than nothing...

"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up." - Thomas A. Edison

Don't give up !!

"Finish each day and be done with it
You have done what you could
Some blunders and absurdities have crept in
Forget them as soon as you can." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Update 05-June-2009:

Its June 2009 and I have been struggling at around 133 pounds.. Guess I have hit a plateau.. And I haven't been exercising a lot as usual these days.. I need to be able to increase my workout now.. I know that will help me in many ways.. I am just trying to find the balance between work and life.. Anyone that know the secret of balancing work and personal life can contact me.. I need all your help and encouragement...

start today and make a new ending."-- Maria Robinson

"If you can find a path with no obstacles, it probably doesn't
lead anywhere." -- Frank A. Clark

"It's fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure."-- Bill Gates

"Again and again, the impossible problem is solved when we see
that the problem is only a tough decision waiting to be made." -- Robert H. Schuller

"The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight but has no vision." -- Helen Keller

"If you have time to whine and complain about something then
you have the time to do something about it." -- Anthony J. D'Angelo

"I cried because I had no shoes until I found someone who had no feet" This saying keeps me recharged today..

Update 15-Oct-2009:
I have been hovering between 132 and 134 for the past few months.. So now I have re-evaluated my starting weight and goal weight.. So, in my new ticker (SW:134 GW:125), I am close to the start.. I hope to get to towards the end some day.. But even if I don't, I will continue my healthy eating and workout habits..

Update 28-Jan-2010:
Oops.. I wish I was in the 132 - 134 range now.. I currently weigh 140 lbs.. Part of it is due to my steroid and other part due to over eating and lack of working-out.. I have been pretty busy at work these days and still trying to find that balance between work and life.. Since my mom is with me I get some time to workout in the mornings. She helps me with most of the cooking.. So my first goal now is not to gain any more weight.. Next I will be shooting towards 135 which is actually my goal for Jan 31st 2010. I may not get to it, but I am working towards it..

Update 25-Feb-2010:

I have been fighting this weight gain and currently fluctuating between 138 and 142.. I may not make it to my goal of 135 lbs on 28th Feb. I guess all my efforts will pay off some day.. I am also learning to reduce the carb in my diet.. But it will take some time to get there..

Update 07-Sep-2012:

So, during the journey of my pregnancy I did put on over 25 pounds. During my last visit, my doctor suggested me to get down atleast 15 pounds to fall into the normal BMI range so that my Blood Pressure is not elevated and there is less strain on my kidneys. With all that's happening in my life, I hardly have the time to workout. I am lucky if I get about 6 hours sleep most nights. So I am using every small opportunity to increase the steps. I am trying to use the stairs instead of the elevators. I have been trying to make changes in the food practice too.. But not able to reduce the calorie intake since my daughter is dependent on me. If I reduce my food intake, I really get tired. So, trying to find a balance there.
