Hat's off to SparkPeople

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Oh my goodness. Does anyone else realize how wonderful SparkPeople is at preparing us for the holiday?? They are helping us to understand that our traditional choices are NOT the healthiest and how to change them up to improve dinner. You can't BUY that kind of knowledge!!! It's sooooooooooooo valuable to our "FOREVER" health and well-being!

So CHEERS to SparkPeople!!

    I love the quiz about holiday food. I learned so much about the choices we make - we can eat well, and healthy at the same time.

    Sparkpeople is a life saver. My family thinks food equals love, and I printed out a recent article on how to say "no" without hurting feelings.

Monday Marching

Monday, November 19, 2012

It's Monday and I'm marching (and running on the spot) my way to lose that last pound to be at goal. It won't happen today, it probably won't happen tomorrow, and it may not happen Wednesday, but it WILL happen! It will happen because I WANT IT, AND AM WILLING TO WORK TOWARDS IT!

So, cheers to a fabulous Marching Monday.

Subtle changes...

Sunday, November 18, 2012

We always have a lovely fellowship hour after church on Sunday with people bringing all sorts of yummy home baking to share. I've been saying "no" to them b/c I'm trying to reach my goal, but something strange happened today. I said "no" again, but didn't feel deprived! I just felt grateful, happy and content.

That's HUGE progress. That kind of progress is greater than a pound lost.

    That is great progress. We too have a fellowship time after church and do a brunch - taking turns to bring whatever. Today they had 2 soups and lots of muffins, doughnuts, chips and such. I have no problem skipping most of the time. I did snitch one of the mini pretzels with the melted Rollo on top - even tastier than the ones with kisses on top - but TINY (a serving on mini pretzels is 16-20 depending on which kind you choose and the Rollos are about 25 calories each - so NOT a bad LITTLE treat).

    Congrats! We have a coffee hour after Church as well and I say no to most of the items. I have a gluten intolerance so it is easier for me to say no and no one gets upset that I didn't eat what they brought. I bring my own snack and then I eat with everyone. I am glad that you did not feel deprived.

1 more pound GONE!

Friday, November 16, 2012

I am so grateful to my SparkPeople support team!!!! Really, words can never express the gratitude I feel today. People e-mail me support when I'm feeling low. People e-mail me tips. SparkFriends are walking beside me virtually, on my journey.

Today I'm down one more pound, and it's steady as she goes for another day of eating "on-plan" and exercising toward my goal.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!!

Grateful Sandi
