Ready for the change

Hello and welcome to my page. Feel free to comment and leave me a note. I love meeting Spark People and hearing your stories.

But as much as I would like to see those weight loss goals materialize - feeling well physically, being able to walk and have good, flexible joints (that don't hurt) is much more important at this point. Doing at least 60 minutes of cardio a day keeps my blood pressure in line and the strength exercises help prevent back pain during long office hours.

The biggest challenges at the moment are my heavy work-schedules which take away too much energy for little benefit.

The other thing is - I need to stop solving issues by eating! Happy? Eat something! Sad? Eat something! Bored: well eat a double portion of everything! Exhausted: never stop eating at all. I so need to get over this and I welcome all success stories in that department very much!

Hello my Spark Friend, how are you doing? I see like me you are bogged down with work again. I have been so busy at work I haven't been able to log on much. Trying to do more, some days better than others. Have a great day.

Your Friend in Spark, Deb

Thanks for the good words on my page. I did pretty well with my eating today. Luckily, I have tomatoes and cucumbers from my garden, so I was able to eat quite a bit for very few calories.

How is your week going? I hope the sun has come out and you are feeling energized!
