I don't go every year, but glad I did! Didn't get tired, either. BUT the biggest thing was I did not eat or be even inspired to eat Fair food! I look at all the offerings, then bought a turkey leg (ate 1/2) & frozen banana! & lot's of emoticon YEAH for me because of YOU! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
TODAY I've been doing 6 loads of laundry, (I only do it every other week, THX to FLASUN I have lot's of clothes, LOL) Cleaned bathrooms, etc. emoticon Getting ready to walk sweet Lucy. emoticon It was 68 yesterday & 86 today! WOW!!!! I'm still hoping for Spring, NOT summer! emoticon

WATERMELLEN is on a tear.

She has been blogging her way through Intuitive Eating by Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch. I have found her series of blogs incredibly insightful. The comments posted in response are proving to be just as meaningful.

Good Day Maintainers,

Could not pass up the opportunity to share this morning's blog - The issue of loose skin due to weight loss by fellow teammate LABYRINTH.

www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_pu
blic_jour
nal_individual.asp?blog_id=65
32972


I found the blog informative and well worth the read for those that may be dealing with loose skin following weight loss and/or know of others that may share this concern.

Not sure where I read it; but, it seems that I've often heard/read things like "Don't expect loose skin to improve, if more than 2 years have passed since the weight has been lost."

That has not been my experience. I am 5 years into this weight loss / weight maintenance experience and continue to experience skin improvements.

So, do consider giving the blog a read. It's packed with some very useful information and suggestions.

You are so welcome!!!!!!


I wrote a new blog, dated 2-6-18: check it out & please comment! THX! 2-6-18 Hi! Everyone! I have 265 minutes of fitness, so far today! Zumba, Shopping; Cleaning; Gym; working. Day 2153 of being active on SP! Woo Hoo! Sweet LUCY dog, stepped on glass in the park, so no walking for her, she's a tiny bit better today! Rest for her, & me too actually, I've been over doing it since my marionette performance at the nature center on Saturday, (The children LOVED the show, especially my little pink haired girl, she is interactive with them. Helping with balancing & just plain fun!)

I am sorry I haven't been on Spark People much except to log food and exercise. I really feel like I need to spend more time on other things right now. I do miss my Spark friends! I hope that your New Year has been wonderful so far! Please keep me in mind when you are talking about maintaining. I have been back to eating right and exercise in a very strict way for the last 8 or so weeks. I feel a lot better! I hope to see you guys again soon! Please let the group know if you would.

Why might I need to be fat, emotionally?

It is a profound question. And, for many of us, emotional overeating is a challenge. Do give WATERMELLEN's blog a read.

Check out my blog: 2000 days of being active on this site!

9-21-17 Happy Autumn AND happy Spring to our SP friends on the other side of the planet!!!! Dog bite MUCH better! I'm ready to hike again!
ABOUT junk food: I just can't have junk food out & around me. Donuts, in the past put 100# on my body. NOW I think of them as being NON- food. I try to only eat foods that energize me. It works for me. I DO slip up, but I am a 80%/20% daily person.80% perfect in foods & movement (I try for 200 minutes a day, usually over meet that goal) & 20% of the time-play foods AND exercise.
1 of my favorite treats is apple pie. I make it with Trader Joes sugar free thick apple sauce, 10 raisins, cinnamon & that's it. I heat it up & it is just like apple pie!

I'm down 3# since the beginning of the month, I KNOW it was from stress, but happy to weight in today!

Congratulations to Miss Dorkness and Kelliebean for their featured blogs – the FIRST for our team in July.

As for the blogs I posted in the spotlight thread from Europe June 19-July 4, team members featured by Spark during that time include:
JeanKnee, Alexsgirl1, Mrstabler, Msann59, 2Bdynamic
and late adds to the list (after 4 – 10 days) LeslieLenore and BrooklynBorn

Thank you for supporting your teammates with your comments and LIKES.
When we are featured by Spark, it reminds others that reaching goal weight is not the end of the journey and maintenance is possible.

Finally back in the USA.
I’m sure I’ve missed some blogs that deserved to be in the team spotlight (time zone differences, lack of free time and iffy Internet while cruising and touring). At first glance it looks like the current featured list lacks the diversity I remember.
I hope you LIKE these as much as I did. I’m glad to be home.

Kriszta

Goal weight:
59 +- 1 kg /// 130 +-2 pounds
CET (Europe, Hungary)

Maintenance Lessons Learned:
-go on with the healthy lifestyle learned in weight loss phase
-just add healthy foods gradually to stop losing
-work out every day - 30-60 minutes is enough to maintain weight and good mood
-do not try to balance overeating by extreme workouts, it is not going to work
-avoid overeating, instead of satisfaction you get stronger cravings
