Happy New Year!

Happy and Healthy New Year to all my spark friends. I hope this year will be a great year to either reach your goals or maintain.

I haven't been around as I am swept up by my busy life as I'm sure everyone else is as well. It never seems to slow down we just find different ways to keep ourselves busy. I owe a great debt to spark people for helping me choose a healthy lifestyle and maintain it.

It has been almost a year since I reached my goal and I am still there, well maybe a few pounds more after Christmas but I don't live by the scale anymore and as long as my clothes fit I figure I must be doing ok.

I tend to indulge myself on the weekends but I still keep it in check and just have a few extra bites of the sweets. I work as a caretaker during the week and pretty much stick to my spinach and beans and veggies. I love eating it so its not a hardship to keep on track. I have the small portions in freezer bags so I just grab the ones I need and I'm good to go, no hassle over figuring out meals and so no need to grab anything last minute such as bread or sliced meat or anything with less fibre but more calories.

Here is a pic of me out for a ride on Indy this past summer, it is so much easier to step up on a 15.3 hand horse when you don't have to heave up the extra 75 pounds!

Enjoy your day!

    Happy New Year to you too!
    Good to see you are still doing well with your healthy lifestyle.
    You were one of my first inspiring people that I met when I first started doing more with "the people" of Spark People & not just logging food, exercise & reading articles like I did the first 4 months.
    The picture is wonderful!
    I wish you continued success!
