This is working!!!

Monday, April 28, 2008

I started coming here march 31,2008. That was the day I filled out my sparkpage. It took me a while, like it does everyone, to find my way around. I'm still searching and probably still missing some things. The nutrition tracker is my best tool. Even tho' I have looked at the calories on food for a long time, It looks different when everything is all together in black and white. Or lavender as the case may be. When I actually see what is going in and the amount of fat,carbs,sodium and all the other stuff it is a real eyeopener. The fitness tracker makes you want to be honest. As I've said before when you lie you only hurt yourself. The amount of support you get is amazing. People you don't know giving advice and suggestions to help another human being has to be the kindest act of all. We are truly in this together and together we can do anything. emoticon emoticon

    I am so glad you are here! I subscribed to your blog to follow your journey. Let do it together!

    Its crazy when you see whats in the food you are eating. I just went to Fridays and ordered off the "low calorie" menue and then realized after typing it in how bad it was. I was so better off with a salad and fat free dressing!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm so glad this is working for you. I have been here for awhile and have to say I'm just now getting to the exercising part. My first challenge was to quit bingeing. I haven't lost a lot but I'm no longer gaining and that is a positive for me. I know when I get in balance it will come off. Just have to have patience. There is so much support here and no judgement. We are all trying to get to the same goal. Have a wonderful day.

    You've made a lot of great progress in your month of being here. There are so many great resources I am STILL discovering more interesting things to learn every day. I can't believe I disregarded the importance of what I put into my body for so long. Good luck and keep up the good work!!
