Just keep running this play until I get it right.



Previous, Previous Update
I am updating my page per instructions from SparkCoach. I started my latest journey with SP on February 4, 2013. Although I have been losing SLOWLY, still I have lost 13 pounds. I am not in this as a race, I have learned to be content with eating better and exercising and feeling healthier. With that said, I do want to lose the last 12 pounds, so I continue......

PREVIOUS UPDATE
It is time to update my introduction! I first joined SP in January, 2009, but did not really get into it until July of 2009. I lost 23 pounds by the end of October that year. Unfortunately, I put my back out by raking leaves without pacing myself. (I guess 2 straight days of raking for 4-5 hours is not really good for you) Since that time 3 years ago I have managed to put back on the 20 pounds. My husband and I are retired and have been on several vacations. We love it, but I have managed to lose my motivation and have been making poor nutrition choices. I decided to do the South Beach diet because I know I can lose weight on this dies, and I know that I feel better avoiding the bad carbs. Today is February 4, 2013, the beginning of a new commitment for me.

Thanks for the Goodie Cate! I managed to stay on track today in spite of getting some really bad news about the sudden death of a friend. Somehow I managed to put a space between thought and action. "I must eat pasta and ice cream." No I don't need to do that and it won't make things any better. So glad to have a new Spark Pal!

We can indeed do this.

Morning Cate. So much for great plans. You can thank me for the rain we are having right now because I had planned to wash the windows and then go for a walk with my dog as a reward. Of course it is pouring. That's ok. I'll take it. I put my meal plan into Spark for the day. That is a good practice I want to get back to the habit of doing. Check your messages. I'm sending you contact info.

I am in Eastham. Not very far at all. Yes I would dearly love to have a nearby Spark Buddy. I walk my dog some times at Thompson's Field. I lost 30 pounds on Spark but I never got to my goal weight and recently I have started to creep up and now I am 10 pounds over where I had left off. So I am a firm believer in the methods of the site and have recommitted to getting it done. Besides when I use the tools here I feel so great.

I see you use South Beach. How has it worked for you? I am thinking of either that or the Mediterranean diet. I know South Beach would be a great way to reboot. But I hate the idea of no fruit at all right at the start of strawberry season! I am mid 60's and would hate to miss a single strawberry season! HaHa. How is that for an excuse?
