Hi, welcome to my page! I've tried many diets, had great success with some, failure with others. Now I'm trying a healthier lifestyle instead of a diet. Tracking my food, exercising, and eating more healthy instead of drastic, restrictive dieting which leads to burn out.
*Drink 8-10 c of water daily.
*Exercise at least 30 min each day.
*Get 8 hrs of good sleep.
*Keep a positive outlook.
*Interact with others more; hopefully helping someone else along the way.
Trying to reach out for support more. Utilizing SP tools & keep food & exercise records.
I'm Kay, 62, from Ohio. Love to laugh, be outside, take walks with my dog. Like to read, garden, and meet new Spark People.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog. No, a car is certainly not an option for England! :-) It's even worse to run into difficulty on a long flight. Seriously, I think they train them not to apologize, because then they'd have to admit to fault.

Thanks for your kind comment on my painting blog. It is looking like we'll have a place to put my stepmother by the end of the week. It sure will be hard and I suspect Dad will need some extra TLC.

Got no idea why the Fitbit Zip didn't reset to 0 the first time. I think I fixed it but then I wondered why each morning it indicated that I had burned calories in my sleep. I read the FAQs and discovered that apparently, we are burning calories all the time, even when we sleep, so the reading was normal. I haven't checked the reply from customer service yet. I disconnected the device from Spark People and turned off my Bluetooth; I'm just going to count my steps, which is what I wanted the device for in the first place (most pedometers I tried added steps when I jiggled them in my hand!).

Thank you for stopping by my page. Yep, Boo is a short-hair and about 11 lbs. and likes to eat like Lexi-still super active at 12 years old. She is the master at knocking things off counters when she is annoyed we have the nerve to put something in her path..has been known to knock off books we placed on our dog bowl for Maile (our 63 lb husky/lab mix) so she wouldn't eat Maile's food. And the epic is when we were dog sitting for two of my sister's dogs and she pushed all the sandwiches-baggies/foil wrapped and all-to the floor and they had a feast!! Her favorite thing is to use her scratching post and then run over to whomever is sitting at the computer and stare us down to give her treats since we were successful in training her to not scratch furniture, she feels she has earned the treats that come with scratching the right things. You should see that expression accompanied with the "tap, tap, tap" of the paw to let us know we are a little slow with the rewards.
