This Sparked Me!

This past week has been the BEST for me and I am SURPRISED I have lost weight without tracking on paper! I have three years experience on SP with tracking my Nutrition so I know what to do and I STILL measure my food,not eyeball it! But though I lost the wt. with the Nutrition tracker through SP, I am learning if I DO NOT exercise AT LEAST 30 minutes a day, WATCHING VERY CAREFULLY what I EAT, I will gain the weight lost back. I have lost 20 lbs. through SP in 5 mos.

and slowly gained 11 back over 3 years. I am now down 3 lbs. this WEEK due to eating properly and allowing for the sweet ,but EXERCISING ahead of time and that burns it off. Note: MY BMR [Basal Metabolic Rate] is at 1819 right now WITHOUT any exercise.I still say stay with the Nutrition Tracker !

    I haven't lost any yet, but I agree with you totally--averaging 60 minutes a day and watching what i eat and eating nothing but fruit after 7 p.m. is the only way to lose weight at age 47 and going through menopause. my opinion only.

    Congratulations on your 20 pound weight loss! I'm right behind you and hoping that in four more months I'll be able to catch up to you! Kudos on your hard work. Keep it up!
