How my life is different after three months with spark people
Tuesday, July 19, 2011
I was re- reading spark diet stages this morning and realized that I had moved to stage four without actually knowing. In less time than I ever could have imagined I have begun to live a lifestyle that is giving me energy, joy, and a huge optimism for a great aging well plan. Its amazing how my habits have changed the people around me;and without nagging or struggling my husband has come along on my journey. He's not one to get online and do the tracking thing but he has already lost 15lbs and hes starting to feel so motivated to keep going! The people I work with have started calling me 'sparkie', and as I work in a dietary department of an assisted living for residents with alzheimers and dementia, the director and the dns have asked for my menu change input.How that little spark that I was 'nt sure I could keep lit has created a burning flame! And that is the most surprising thing, none of this was planned . It was an outgrowth of my personal change.So if anyone out there is doubtful about this process working after years and years of eating junky food and being too sedentary, take heart:)It all started with ten minutes a day with movement and becoming aware of what I was putting in my mouth.I haven't reached my goal weight but I am certain I will .My transformation continues as does this journey.
