Hello and welcome to my page. I started out here on SP weighing 210 in September 2011. I needed to lose 75 pounds. I lost 50 pounds with adding exercising, eating more fruits, vegetables and eating way less fast food. June 2016 hubby fall and broke his neck, with the stress of him in the hospital and care homes for 7 months I put back on some weight. I am married to a very supportive man who with his help I think I can do this. I love to cook and he inspires me to make, healthy low calorie meals., I have learned to love exercising. I walk most every day. I like walking and walk at least one mile in my morning walk. Many times that turns in to 2 or 3 miles I just enjoy it so much. I also do Spark workout videos those are really fun too. I do mostly the strength training ones as strength training is very important. I look forward to learning more things every year to be a good role model to others on this journey. --------------------- July 2018 Joined the 5% Summer Challenge and am very glad I did. One of the tasks was to track every thing you eat. I found out I was going way over allotment even though I was doing portion control. Important to remember track your food. ----------- Aug. 2018 Joined the 5% Fall Challenge and going into this with a better plan than I have had in a long time

2017-after hubby's fall he lost weight while in care homes, he went from 230 to 177 at 6'2". He would only eat a few bites of the meals he was served and also got sick with C-Diff. On coming home, with the help of his VA doctor I got him over C-Diff and he started eating good home cooked meals. He has put back on some weight but is still thin.

    Kathryn, I can't find it either.
    I will say that the new spark start page seems to be a place I can be held accountable, so, perhaps will go that route instead of the EOD.
    Have you tried it yet?

    Choice
    Today​ I choose to live by choice,
    ​not by chance;
    To make changes, not excuses​​.
    To be motivated, not manipulated.
    To be useful, and not used.
    To excel, not compete.
    I choose self-esteem, not self-pity.
    I choose to listen to the inner voice,
    not the random opinion of others.
