Lifestyle Change?

My name is Grace and I live in NM. I finally understand what it means to make a lifestyle change. I lost and regained weight in my first two years on Sparks because I was dieting and then going 'off' my diet. It was the third year that I made a sincere lifestyle change. I now eat whatever I want - in moderation - and I exercise almost every day.

My name is Grace and I live in NM. I finally understand what it means to make a lifestyle change. I lost and regained weight in my first two years on Sparks because I was dieting and then going 'off' my diet. It was the third year that I made a sincere lifestyle change. I now eat whatever I want - in moderation - and I exercise almost every day. I have some ups and downs but they're minimal because I get back into my new lifestyle as soon as the scale goes up a pound or two. Some of my plateaus last longer than I would like, but I'm cosistantly moving downward towards my goal. In the last year, I've actually lost weight on a trip- which usually meant a 10 pound gain! I look at my weight loss - not as a destination, but as a journey to good health. It will be a lifelong journey.

Thanks for adding me as a friend! I read your page, we have a lot of common things. Do you have pictures of your scrapbooks? I love to see some. What's the WW you have joined? I recently traveled to Vienna (Austria) for a week and hope to find time write a blog about this with many photos. Have a nice day!

HI Gracie, I wanted to send you a message but this is the best I can do from mobile. My son broke my computer and I can't get into the teams or tracker from here. :( Hopefully I'll have it back up in a couple of days but will MIA until then.
