Dump the Excuses

Stop looking for excuses every day to not eat healthy - to not exercise and so on.

I think everyone has this little devil on their shoulder who whispers in their ear before going to the gym "oh no you are too tired today" or "oh but you already exercised 2 days ago...

No turning back

My secret to getting back on track.......Never let anyone know that you are on a diet. If you tend to get way better results when no one knows anything. I find when you tell no one it helps you to be successful. I take my lunch breaks with no one that way I eat what I bring and not be ...

Eating a plant-based diet.

...& ensuring to get protein from legumes, beans, eggs, and lactose-free milk in small doses.
My dietician strongly suggested this over and over again, but it was the WAY he suggested it that came across as abrupt and rude...so now, nearly a year later, I'm finally assimilating. He really did hav...

Small goals = Big Success

From my experience, those who set small goals and achieve them one at a time are the ones who are the most successful in life. It doesn't matter so much what the goal is when it comes to weight loss (it could be to lose 1 pound every week for one year, for instance), the key is to make sure that yo...

NO TO DIET!

I realized a long time ago that when I focus on what "I can't have," it backfires on me. So when I do Spark People, I am most successful when I think in terms of what "am I getting," instead. I'm getting the body I want. I'm getting to feel better on a daily basis from paying attention to what I...

Don't Make It a Daily Decision

Don't make "taking care of yourself" a daily decision.

Decide now that you are worth being taken care of. Decide now that a healthier you is a better you. Decide now that you will not let obstacles stand in your way; not time, not mood, not temptation, not other people. Stop making it a da...

Walk.. walk .. walk!!!

I have considered myself pretty sedentary the past several years. I recently realized that life is passing me by and I didn't have the energy to do anything about it. I weighed almost 300 pounds (296) and it took all I had in me to get up and move around. I was also closing in on the BIG 5-0

SPARK everyday and NEVER give up!!

I have to give a lot of credit to SPARK. My journey began June 2015. My husband started Sparking (not sure how he discovered it.) and he got me involved. Let me tell you...it was a REAL eye opener to see how many carbs & calories & fat were in some of my usual food choices. Let's just say, I dro...
