    2/22/2017 10:03:43 AM, by LCDDUB

    Good Morning Sparkers, Here's to us all moving forward, my #1 goal for today. Feel like I've kept myself in a "pause" mode and need to break out of it. I know it's more of a mental game right now so I'm going to 'get that right' and push. No excuses, just do it. May all of you have t... Read more

    That moment while watching a video clip of yourself and noticed the transformation....wow!!! I've been so focused that I have not taken the moments to really look at and also honor the progress. Almost 24 months later...beautiful and challenging; so worth the emotional work, physical work and the ... Read more

  • Little things lead to big things

    2/21/2017 10:14:34 PM, by HEALTHYEMAN

    So many times we think big. If we restrict our calories to aim for a 1,000 calorie deficit every day of the week, we could lose 2 pounds a week! It seems that we're aiming for perfection. Instead, I'd like to focus on the good habits I've developed over the last few to several months. New ha... Read more

    I could not be happier. I got to cardio drum today. I love love love doing it. It is intense and fast. I think the clock moves so slow the first half of class then it starts down and it is over. I simply love it. The easiest exercise that is FUN to do. Tomorrow will be fun. We are going to a new pla... Read more

    Well on day Tuesday, week 2 of my program. I have lost two pounds even though the last four days were more of my old ways but with added veggies. I am seeing some progress. My stomach looks flatter. It may just be water but I will take it. I am excited to see where I am at week 10!... Read more

    So, here it is, a bit over a year since my last entry. I'm hoping to do a better job of getting into a healthier routine. I've been getting caught up on all the testing I've been behind on. I've also been getting frequent calls from my insurance, checking up on all the health issues I deal with, ... Read more

    A rainy, humid overcast day here, time for indoor things. I ma glad things are settling down here for now. I surpassed my step goal again. After this coming week, the Spark activity tracker will not sync up to the site, so I will not replace it with anything, but just watch my activities and g... Read more

    Photo is DH and I in the 1990's - younger and I was 107 lbs heavier than I am now! Been busy but mostly with caregiving of DH with my bicycle rides and workouts being a nice break. Don't see DS much - he is sad about DH, I know he is and hates to see his formerly bright Dad, in his presen... Read more

    2/21/2017 10:26:04 AM, by SIMPLYSHERRY

    I have always been self conscious of the way I look. Remembering being teased as a child by the so called "popular" crowd. Then I grew older and am amazed at how insecure a lot of them are and how time has not always been nice to them. I no longer am embarrassed of my size. I want to live each d... Read more

  • Envisioning myself fitter

    2/21/2017 9:43:30 AM, by MAGLITE7

    I have been "thin" before -- well at least, thinner. Before I met my husband I was at my lowest weight in my adult life: about 155, I think. That is still 15 lb above the upper range of "healthy" BMI for me, and I wouldn't necessarily consider myself that "fit" at that point as I was a smoker, didn'... Read more

    Good Morning Sparkers, Well today is my youngest son's birthday so will be involved with that. Going to get my workout in early, then the rest of the day is his! For dinner he's still deciding, but I'm going to do my best to be 'somewhat' good in what I eat. I know it won't be 100% but I'll ... Read more

No internet so can not pursue my challenges. I am not whining about it though. I do as much as i can now and will do bett... Read more

    2/20/2017 10:53:42 PM, by MLIEN913

    Happy Presidents Day. It was rough working today. At least I ate well and kept active. Oddly, this evening I started having severe muscle spasms in my legs. I mean, pain that locked my legs. Most of them were in the muscle just above my left knee but some were on the right side of my right calf too... Read more

  • Better Tracking Wish

    2/20/2017 10:40:45 PM, by TYNITERRAPIN

    I wish the food log was more diverse at tracking nutrition...as in a way to differentiate or denote healthy calories and fats vs empty ones. I would like to, at a glance, see when I was high on calories/fat/etc. because I ate an avocado and almonds vs cake and ice cream. There is a big difference an... Read more
