My favorite quote: "The best is yet to be." I have some goals that I have not yet reached and am still keeping the dream alive because while things may be good, the best is yet to be.

Spark People is one of the tools that I can use to help me achieve my goals. There are no failures, only lessons that give an opportunity to learn what to do or what not to do next time.

My goals:
1. Have a controlled eating of snacks - no more binging
2. Eat only when hungry and until satisfied
3. Exercise daily, either planned or spontaneous
4. Goal weight -- 128 pounds

My Plan:
The Starch Solution -- whole food plant based
Beck Diet Solution strategies
Exercise at least 30 minutes daily, including cardio, strength and stretching

    Thanks for commenting on my blog about the new food ideas! I've never tried flax seed but have heard a lot about it. I'm going to have to look into it. Your salad idea made me super hungry for one!!

    Welcome to By The Numbers!

    We are a small team dedicated to helping you lose weight and to learn how to keep it off by knowing your numbers.

    Welcome aboard friend, we really are all in the same boat.

    Co-Leader of By The Numbers!

    **edit: As a new member, it is too easy to join too many sparkteams. Try to choose wisely and leave any team that doesn't assist you in your journey (there is a 'leave this team' button on every teams main page). Yes, even mine - and you will always be welcomed back. I left and returned to many teams during my journey!

    Stick around and come back every day!
    Hi! I just stopped on your page to say "HI" and welcome you to Spark. You're in the right place to reach your goals, but promise that you'll stop in every day and log your water, log your veggies and fruit, log your food, log your exercise, and read, and post, and log your water, and write on someones page, and read some more, and blog, and log your water, and LEARN that you are not alone, and we're all right here with you! Did I mention that you should log your water?
    WHEW! Ok, I know you're overwhelmed getting to know this site, but use those buttons up there, especially the MY TRACKERS drop down list, and then either the START or MY SPARKPOINTS. Both of these helped me learn about the site, gain momentum and meet new friends.

    Speaking of meeting new friends, this place is like a cocktail party. If you stand in the corner, you won't have as much fun. Make eye contact (or in this place, leave a message on someone's page, or add your opinion to the bazillion conversations going on) to say HI, and you'll meet new friends quick. Oh, yeah, WRITE A BLOG TOO! The catchy title brings folks to your page and you'll meet new friends even faster!

    Coming here every day adds a great level of support and accountability. Explore, learn, and never be afraid to reach out for help. We're all in this together! Stop by at my page and introduce yourself around to some of my friends too! You'll be glad you did!

    Doing it together, success is inevitable!
