Lessons from Spark...

Every journey begins with just one step.
Progress not perfection.
Fall 3 times, get up 4 times.
Don't waste time on recriminations, just get back up, dust oneself off and get back on track.
Nurture yourself (it's not the same as indulging yourself).
Make choices that make you feel good about yourself.
And remember -- baby steps, baby steps...

Member Since: 11/4/2007

SparkPoints: 122,938

Fitness Minutes: 114,904

My Goals:
I've been in maintenance since losing 28 lbs. in 2008 with the Spark program. My goal and challenge is to continue to stay within maintenance range.


My Program:
Walk minimum 30 minutes a day

Yoga class once a week

Fitness class once a week

Track calories daily

Avoid getting too hungry, eat 5-6 smaller meals over the day

Emphasis on lean protein/dairy, fruits, veggies

Some (dark) chocolate is required of course!

Weigh-in twice a week

Water, water, water

Do not eat in front of TV

Do not eat directly from bag or box

Use smaller plates

Stop when full -- not overfull

Give up membership in the 'clean plate club'

Plan, plan, plan: take water/snacks on outings; have cut-up veggies ready to nibble

Get informed: check restaurant menus beforehand; check labels for ingredients, recommended portion size etc.


Personal Information:
Enjoy getting together with family and friends; photography; books and podcasts; yoga. I'm a true believer in the benefits of walking -- not only good for the body but also a great mood-lifter. Plus it's the greenest way to get around. You don't have to run a marathon, just get around the block.

Other Information:
Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful. -Buddha

Success is moving forward in the face of adversity without losing our enthusiasm and motivation for a positive outcome. Even the tiniest steps forward are better than no steps at all. Have an awesome weekend and may your days always be filled with success!
