I am a return Sparkie. I lost weight using Sparkpeople prior to my knee(s) replacement surgery. Post surgery I did great, however, I made poor food choices. I realized I was eating unhealthy but just couldn't stop. My strategy is: plan before eating, eat it/ document, drink 6-8 waters daily, eat within calorie range (1250ish), keep carbs low 140s. fat in mid 30s to low 40s. Exercise at least 3-4 times weekly. Exercise may includes WA# 1mile walk/ home stationary bike 15 minutes and gym. My Wellness Vision Success is a 145 pound healthy female with normal cholesterol, Bp and glucose. I will become conscience of movement. I will move more and more. Then slowly increase walking to 2 miles 3x weekly. In my new strong, trim body I will be more confident. I am fully committed to this life style change to become the healthiest possible ME! I welcome suggestions and encouragement from Spark Friends.

    If you want/need a little push...consider joining us for an 5 week challenge.

    Why not join the X-WEIGHTED CHALLENGE? We're all ages, all fitness levels, all striving to live a healthier life. There is always something to learn from each other. These teams are also a great source of motivation! We can become healthier by working together and making new friends as we go. We compete in weekly nutrition and fitness challenges. It is similar to the Biggest Loser team. There are 3 teams that compete within the X-Weighted team. We do ATC (All Teams Challenge) various challenges (nutrition, fitness etc.) The main requirement is to post your weight weekly. The ATC challenges and/if individual teams have challenges are optional (however, very beneficial). If you have any questions, please let me know.
