I have written this blog in my head over and over for a few weeks. Just siting down to do it has been the the problem. Somehow, I go to the SP page, read other blogs, follow my Team Winter Challenge..yet getting here emoticon

I read Women's World Magazine weekly and have done so for years. I enjoy most parts of the read. I do the puzzles and try recipes etc...I also read weekly how "This &*^% diet: or "that %^$# diet" will make 50-60-70- pounds lighter in x number of weeks. I used the ^&%4 not to curse but as titles of diet. So every week I read the story of how someone lost weight and how their life has changed. Yes, I even believe I have read about Spark People in there.

One thing I have noticed in most of the diet plans is that the focus is on
1. Portion control
2. Choices
3. Snacking
4. Exercise

Sometimes, I try the ideas for meals..yet I still find not big surprise. So I guess alll I am saying is that watching your portion sizes, what you eat and moving all have an impact on weight loss. So I just keep on trying.

This year has gotten off to a rough start for us, but is improving. It will only keep on getting better. Life has ups and downs so now I want the ups for a bit!!

    Those 4 focus points you mentioned are a big part of a healthy lifestyle. To lose we have to burn more calories than we take in. Portion control and making healthy choices is #1. A person can exercise all they want but if they're not eating right (healthy nutritious food AND portion control) its a losing battle.

    emoticon you already know what to do. There are changes going on INSIDE you with everything good thing you're doing for yourself even if you don't see it yourself on the outside. It's my experience it''ll show up on the scale when I least expect it. Don't give up. EVER. You can lose inches even if the number on the scale doesn't move. Go by how you feel, how your clothes fit....

    I'm cheering you on and I KNOW you'll reach your goal. emoticon emoticon
