HELLO all my pals! I MISS you all!!! Before I tell you about my title I want to apologize that I haven't been on sparks much so I hope you haven't deleted me from your friends list. I have been very busy with life and my kids and their problems.
Now my title. I have not been following any sparks programs (sorry sparks) due to the fact that all the tracking on the food and fitness was really stressing me out if you could understand that. I did not need additional stress.So,,now I am doing my own thing. What is that?
I am not tracking calories. I find that at my age (66) I absolutely cannot eat all the food that is required and sometimes not even the minimum 1200 calories. I eat when im hungry only and the right healthy stuff. And about every two hours. So with that right there my body knows I am not starving as I'm constantly feeding it.
I try to take an hour walk everyday and some kind of exercise if i don't walk.
Im much happier now and not as stressed and the BIG KICKER IS ive lost almost four pounds. Yes...i joined sparks last Oct and was not able to lose. I lost this weight in the last few months and now recently it is starting to come off more regularly.I am healthy (just had a checkup) my cholesterol is down my heart is fine ..my blood tests are good so..all in all im a HAPPY CAMPER. Just wanted to share this with you and i really don't know what you will get out of it but all I know is that we are all different and respond in different ways. I think I finally found my way.I sure hope so.
And don't get me wrong about sparks..they have marvelous great articles that i still read everytime they are sent to me and those help me out a lot. I just have to decide for myself which articles will benefit me
Thanks to whoever took the time to read this and remember you are all still my pals and a lot of you play facebook games so I see you more often.For those who don't play I will try my hardest to visit you.There are a few of you who are faithful in commenting on my feeds and such and to you I say thanks. So in closing I wish you all luck in reaching your goals and hope you will keep in touch with me..xoxoxoxoxoxox
