Just 10 Minutes

I began the weight loss portion of my journey first. Figuring, at some point, I would want to exercise. I never got to that point.

Any excuse worke...

Be Aware of the Food Industry Ploys

How much do you need/want to lose? My suggestion would be to track every calorie (eventually every carb, fat, and all fiber and this you can do on the SP nutrition tracker). Depending on what you need to lose, decide how many calories you want to eat. I lose well at 1200-1500. Add daily fitness and ...

Be prepared on the road!

On the road a lot huh? Honestly, your best bet is probably to be uber-proactive and make a cooler bag full of your favorite things...kinda like how we send our kids to school these days - I mean, why do we always forget about doing something like that for ourselves?

The secret is: No Secret!

NEVER GIVE UP

No matter how slow or how long it takes, never give up on any of your goals, especially those for weight loss and better health.

Being a hypothyroid, it takes me infinitely longer to progress these days. I am often frustrated at the slow pace, but I will not give up.

Keep trying it

Even if you don't succeed the first time you try, keep trying! There have been many times that I have tried to create a habit of exercise. Decades later from the first try, I think it is finally working. I feel what I have always heard I am supposed to feel about an exercise habit. I feel the need t...

Track and Weigh Food

This is two secrets in one. First, TRACK EVERYING that goes in your mouth. SparkPeople has been the perfect way for me to stay accountable and track foods without the hassle of having to write all the nutrients down in a notebook.
