Spark People, Phase 2

Well, here I am again, my second time around with Spark People. I left several months ago because I became frustrated with Spark not remembering my password, even though I appreciated all its weight control features.
Also, I recently saw a brief TV spot on the local news about how someone had lost 80 pounds through this web site. And that re-sparked (pardon pun) my interest.
So here we go again. Hope to re-connect with some of the friends I knew before and of course attract new ...

I'm kind of semi-reitired; have my own graphic design/writing business following a career as a high school/community college English teacher. I've been living in the South Jersey area for many years although my hometown is Chicago.
Here's hoping for success in this re-visited Spark People phase.

SparkPoints: 14,198

Fitness Minutes: 24,348

My Goals:
To maintain my weight and continue a healthy lifestyle that includes daily exercise, the fountain of youth!

My Program:
• Limiting carbs and portions
• Striving for exercise 5 days a week: aerobics, walking, weight training, spinning

Personal Information:
I was previously known as "prestigepub" on this site. I decided to start as a new name so I would avoid the log-in problems I had before. I grew up in Chicago, moved to Pittsburgh as a senior in high school and came to South Jersey after graduating from Penn State's School of Journalism. Have been here ever since!

As you might tell from some of my photos, I am an animal lover and presently have two dogs and two cats. The second introduced herself to me on my front porch. I trapped her (humanely) and had her spayed. Thinking she was feral, I tried to return her to the environment--the nearby woods--but she kept coming back! Apparently she was dumped by someone because she appears fairly domesticated and loves to purr when held. So she lives life pretty much on the front porch and surrounding grounds. ( I must keep cats outdoors because of my son-in-law's allergy.) I'm discovering that cats can be wonderful pets as well as dogs...nice to have a new discovery at this age!

Other Information:
I try to stay busy and focused and keep a positive outlook on everything. Sometimes it's difficult, but usually I succeed.

CAROL for many people sugar is not the demon the demon is the overuse of sugar, along with many other things. Even healthy drinks like juices can raise your blood sugars . I use it sparingly when I bake. I use fruits to sweeten baked goods and few people know the difference. Natural sugars can work but Processed sugars are empty of nutrients so I do avoid those things.
The sugar alcohols and especially the sucralose give me bad headaches and nasty tastes in my mouth afterwards. I was diagnosed with chemical sensitivity over 20 years ago. I did allergy shots at home 4 shots weekly so I asked to do them myself and some of the food and chemical ones I have overcome others are still there. Since I came to Spark I am off Diabetic medication. I can keep my blood sugar numbers in check.
It is just my choice and others do try to avoid it also.

Carol, well done with your yoga. I am setting up my room with an old VHS so I can follow my yoga from Kripalu Yoga years ago.
Great you had a good session.-Well DONE.
I see TERRY got snow we so far have been missed again. We bought a new snow thrower last year and we have used it very much. I did it once and DH feels he only did it 4 or 5 times.
Take care HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon

Hi !! My friend/mechanic Louie got voted onto city council in Franklin Township and he asked me to be on the library committee. They seem nice but did a lot of complaining last night.

I was tired when I got there and tired when I left!

We got about 7 inches of snow. How much did you get?

Congrats on those 2 lbs.

Just to let you know, I did have a hs student with epilepsy and he had a seizure in class. I managed to get him to the floor without hitting his head.

Every day it is something new...did you go to the piano lesson?

By a "sit", I meant just sitting on the couch together, decompressing.

Everything has been so hectic lately...getting tiring.

How are you? emoticon
