In no particular order activities that help me avoid gaining weight during stressful events.
1) Support from friends and family.
2) Logging on to Spark People daily.
3) Faith that every day I am succeeding in increments.
4) Eating a hearty salad with protein
5) Freezing 1/4 cup of juice in bottom of water bottle then adding water over the frozen juice. Yummm....I drink more water that way.
6) Walking Buddy The Dog every evening.
7) Visualizing cravings as little beasts. Telling them "no" they may not have sugar. That way I do not feel deprived.
8) Decluttering house. It's uplifting and fights cravings.
9) Gardening
10) Enjoying the sunshine.
11) Hearty vegetable and bean soup in a rainbow of colors.
12) Eliminating most wheat products from diet.
13) Juicing greens and mixing them in an organic protein slushy. Healthy sub for sugar and wheat snacks.
14) Yoga at the gym and in two minute increments around the house.
15) Water walking with good friend at the pool.

    It makes me so sad to see the number of people who make a Sparkpage and then QUIT. How do I know? Because I come back later to check on how they have done, and the page is just like it was when they started or maybe they've logged that they lost 4# and then ZILCH.

    Honestly, at this point in your life, nothing is more important than taking care of your physical and emotional health. I've signed into Sparkpeople every day for 140 days and I'm here for the long-haul, because I know I will never get younger, but I can fight getting "old." It takes effort, but Sparkpeople has so much support, that I know I can do it. That thumbnail photo is of fat-old-me at the gym doing SOME exercise. You can do this. DO NOT QUIT!

    Oh, one more thing..............STAY WITH THIS..................DON'T GIVE UP!
