Well here I am, another year has passed. I have been back on SP for 2 weeks now and things are going well.

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.

My Program:
I am tracking my food and staying between 1200-1350 calories a day.
I am going to aerobics and strength class 3 days a week. In June I got the Spark People Activity Tracker and I am now in the 10,000 steps a day club, so a 3-4 mile walk is a daily activity for me.

    I live in SUNRISE. That's on the EAST COAST, in Broward County.

    That's a nice wedding song. Ours was "Just The Way You Are"; & we also used "I'll Always Love You"; by Taylor Dayne.
    The words to that song are really beautiful!

    Hi Cate, Thanks for the visit to my blog today. I am with you on the conservative approach to joint healing. Let's hope we both get through this without surgery. I told myself yesterday that losing another 10 pounds would be a really big help for my knee.

    We are going to Florida in February for the first time. In a little RV with our dog. We hope to visit state and federal parks and natural areas and walk a lot and maybe sample some different cultures and foods. Any tips from you would be most welcome. We don't have an itinerary yet so we are wide open. Have a healthy New Year
