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 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

    Hi Carole this is Carol,

    If it works for you and your Dr is happy with your numbers, then that is where it's at! Success speaks for itself. Everyone is different. And I KNOW the walking WORKS; I have an excellent team for that if you're interested, The Step Diet team.

    And no way would I delete you as a friend!!!!!!!!!! We all have lives outside of SP; you come on when you can and that's that.

    My program is a lot like that...I eat 6/8 mini meals every day, I exercise to fit "my" family & responsibilities. It worked...when I started last year I tried to follow SP exercise & nutrition plans, I was so stressed all the time. I gave took me a year to lose 38 lbs. Listen to "YOUR" body, you'll be fine!!!

    I'm not on SP as much as I used to, financial, & just life. I'll still visit're my friend!! Drop by when you can...
