Let's GO Dawggies!!!

I just LOVE reading other SPARK Pages!!! Watching others having so much success spurs me on!!

Ive been on SPARKS since Dec 10. My favorite team is the SPIRITED UNDER DAWGS!!! It's a tight team where we help each other to lose 5% of our weight in 8 weeks. It's exciting to watch some hit their goal. Just as exciting is to watch many make lifestyle changes. I, myself went from drinking 6-8 cans of Pepsi a day,,,to now rarely touching soda,,, interesting I can NOT stand Pepsi now, ...

I, myself went from drinking 6-8 cans of Pepsi a day,,,to now rarely touching soda,,, interesting I can NOT stand Pepsi now, I now drink water!!! AMAZING!! Who would of THOUGHT!!!

On this challenge I NEED to be serious with cooking delicious food!! At one point I had given this up!! I'm actually a good cook!! I'm very fortunate to be working with a dietician. She tells me how nice it is to have someone who actually follows through. :)

While I have health problems,,,who doesn't as we age?? I'm NOT going use this as an excuse!!! I'm FINALLY starting to see some improvements from the infection to the bone in my left foot. I can't walk on it, but as my Mom taught me very well,,, I've always have had health issues since birth,,,,,she told me "Where there's a will, there's a WAY!!!" She's been gone over 20 years. Her wisdom stays with me and has been passed on to the Grandchildren.

It's how you interpret life,,,as to the journey takes you. If ur facing a hard circumstance, you can feel awful,,,seeing nothing good,,, no room for improvement, or you can see all the positive in what you have available. The choice is up you!!!

Hi! My most important health goal right now, at least the most motivating, is to get in shape for my trip to Ecuador this June. I sponsor an Compassion child and I have signed up to meet her and see the area in which she lives. So exciting!

I will probably stay active between challenges. It's nice to know the Dawgs do that. I am hoping to do more "real" exercise next time around. I was so out of shape and had other health struggles that I have been counting about anything that involves being on my feet. It's caused me to be on my feet, more, though, and that has built my endurance a lot! I am feeling so much better.

What are some of your goals if you have them?

Yes, DH throws a fit or refuses to eat entirely unless he has the food HE wants. Frequently does not know what he wants to eat until 5 minutes before time for a meal.

You asked about my restricted diet so I thought I would share that I have metabolic syndrome and Hashimoto's syndrome. Thus my body doesn't absorb carbohydrates very well which, of course, causes weight issues along with other problems. Certainly nothing that I can't live with but, from time to time, I have to spend a week or two almost fasting to get the sugars out of my system. It has taken me years to find the answer but doing this helps me live much better and more normally. During this time my calorie intake in around 500 to 600 daily. There is a blog on my page that explains it. Thanks for the info about the Spark book!
