Wouldn't it be nice to just lounge and listen to the ocean roar anytime we wanted?

Adventures in Semi-Retirement

I have been on SP for about 10 years I think although I have been trying something different for the past six months. That didn't work too well so I am back to SP. That is because while I was first on SP I lost 20 pounds, maintained it for two years and then gained five pounds per year so that I now am heavier than I was when I joined. Mostly because I went inactive on SparkPeople and fairly inactive in my life. A diagnosis of pre diabetes has sent me back to the place where I was initially ...
I have been on SP for about 10 years I think although I have been trying something different for the past six months. That didn't work too well so I am back to SP. That is because while I was first on SP I lost 20 pounds, maintained it for two years and then gained five pounds per year so that I now am heavier than I was when I joined. Mostly because I went inactive on SparkPeople and fairly inactive in my life. A diagnosis of pre diabetes has sent me back to the place where I was initially successful. To do it again. It is frustrating to think I can't wave a magic wand and start my healthy eating at the place I was six years ago but I know what it will take to eventually get there:
1) Exercise at least 45 minutes a day, 6 days a week, as well as walk sufficient steps to total 10,000.
2) Follow healthy eating plan, counting and recording calories, daily.

Welcome to the challenge of Fine Tuners.
I know it is unusual to be called a challenge if someone else doesn't make up the rules. But Win Fine Tune challenge is about whatever items YOU choose to challenge for yourself, which is then committed on our thread. As you accomplish or change situations you will modify and clarify what you are working on. Email me privately if this is still too confusing. I hope you find it rather ideal as a personal challenge focusing.
