... Happy Easter to all

Saturday, April 03, 2010

As we celebrate Easter I was reflecting on my progress since joining the Spark.

I've been blessed with the opportunity to share what I have been achieving with many supportive people around the world in a "safe" environment where we are all trying to achieve or maintain our ideal of the weight we want to be.

I have gained so much knowledge on how to lose weight sensibly from all of the information that is contained on Spark People.

For the first time in my life (and I've done the lose weight thing a few times) I have been losing weight without feeling that I am depriving myself. Sure I've given up the amount of bread and cheese that I used to consume but I'm eating more than ever. Disciplining myself to eating small meals every few hours has meant I am always full. Disciplining myself to plan what I'm going to eat when I go to work has meant I'm not grazing on high sugar snacks or high fat snacks.
Discipling myself to drink water regularly so that I now drink at least 10 cups a day means that I don't look to down a soda, milk or beer.

When I started my change in lifestyle I wasn't confident that it would work but I knew that if I didn't take charge of my life and reverse the trend of weight gain now I wouldn't be healthy as I aged.

After 4 months I am well on the way of being fit and healthy at a BMI that I am sure next time I see him my doctor won't believe.

Thank you all my Spark friends and all who are encouraging me. A Happy Easter, peace and prosperity to all.

    Well done Dariot!
    You must be so proud of yourself, I am so proud of you !.

    We all need support and in supporting our Sparkie friends we support ourselfs because it comes back around! (Not that we do this for this reason). It is a by product!!

    Sparkie Friendship's are a wonderful experience. We learn so many things about others and other lands that we would not normally do, and to be able to help and Motivate one another is a very satifying feeling, also in doing so, we Motivate ourselves.

    Take care my friend,
    Love Susie emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
