I like the bracele story, although I'm not much for jewelry. Hmmm, maybe a new book for each 5 lbs!

My daughter got a Pandora bracelet from her boyfriend for Christmas. I wasn't familiar with them until then...but they would work great for a "celebration" bracelet or reward. They have tons of different types of charms and by the time you reached goal weight you'd have a beautiful bracelet!! Wish I'd have thought of that. But I seemed to reward myself with nice clothes and shoes!! I am glad someone shared the bracelet story though - that was so sweet of her mom to do that....

Congratulations Michelle!! Yay! I lost a pound this week, so that makes three of the five I gained. Two more and I'm back where I left off!
The bracelet is really a good idea, Darlene.
Hope you all have a good weekend!

Just a note:
On one of the other teams, a sparker said she wanted
a bracelet with a certain number of add a beads to
mark each 5 lbs. she lost. Based on what she said,
she couldnt afford it, but her mother surprised her
with the beads and bracelet for Christmas and she
just got to put her first 5 lb. bead on there today.

I thought this was a neat idea for encouragement..

Michelle, good for you on getting to your mini-goal.

Because I'm just starting back, my goal is to be consistent (and honest) about tr emoticon about tracking nutrition & fitness. I've also added mini-goals on exercise and Spark community interactions.

Michelle, I hope the scale is kind to BOTH of us tomorrow!!
Cindy, I think it's important to still have some things you like occassionally. As long as you plan for it, and balance it out, it helps you to not feel deprived and give up!!
Hope you all have a great Friday!!

Good luck for you weigh in Michelle.

I had Mexican for lunch, so more calories, fat and sodium than usual. I chose a selection with salad and used salsa for dressing. BUT, when I put it in the tracker with my other meals, it was OK! SOOO, lesson learned, be flexible, allow yourself to eat something you like, but sensibly, and make sure the other meals that day are sensible. Planning & Tracking do help.

We are all here, alive and thoeretically well, so
that is cause for celebration.

Personally speaking, the year does not much matter to
me, it is the quality of life I am living, how much
JOY and HAPPINESS and SUPPORT to others I can share.
We are having fun and my weight battles are a problem
for sure, but it beats the alternative....I will not
give up,

David is cooking today, Hoppin' John, greens, corn
bread and pork chops....Doesn't sound like diet food
or health food, but it will be cooked in a healthy
manner, and portions watched..........Now, I am off
to pedal away on my stationery bike and trot along on
my treadmill.....(I still want an elliptical)maybe
my daughter will get me one for my birthday...????
HA
