I have reached my destination regarding a healthier lifestyle and my weight loss goals. It took me longer, but I have found that slow and steady keeps you on course and helps avoid detours, you can not have an all or nothing attitude (I have maintained my goals weight now for over 8 years).

This is my advise to others who are beginning their healthier lifestyle journey: SparkPeople really works, but the key is you and consistency. Create a SparkPage and have it set so members can see it (I didn't want to do this at first either, but if you commit to this go all the way, we also would like to get to know you better, no strangers here, just friends you have never met). Find and join SparkTeams that fit your interests and needs (best place to talk to your new friends, and get all the support and motivation you will need). Stay active on your teams by joining in the challenges and post frequently. Track your food; drink at least 8 glasses of water a day (challenge yourself to work your way up to it if you are finding this difficult). Add different exercises to your day (start off slowly and increase the amount of exercise over time). Take baby steps, and before you know it those baby steps become giant leaps.

SparkPeople is free, but the rewards are priceless.

    My son is bringing my Vapor Clean Steamer over tomorrow as he ordered it for me on his credit card and then I'm paying him back. (He gets Reward Points). I know I'll love it, as I've wanted one for so long. My husband is just such a negative, critical person, that I know how he will react when he finds out I bought it. His mother was a person who scrubbed her kitchen floor daily with a scrub brush, so he has thought I was going the "lazy" route using a mop. emoticon

    Hi Sonia, thanks for reading my Spark Blog and offering your comments, it's always nice to know someone is reading. You have definitely been one of those Sparkfriends who have commented on my blogs throughout the years, your support is always appreciated.

    And my apologies, when going through my friends list, you showed up with no status update over 1000 days and I removed you as a friend. You can see I have now added you back.

    Thanks always!
