******* Simple plan for each day for me. *******
+++++++++++!!! BE HONEST! !!!++++++++++
Hello, welcome to my page. I have been sparking since 2008.My highest weigh was 245. I am a 63 yr old women married over 40 yr. I know what needs to be done with nutrition but have a very hard time accomplishing it each day. I love Jesus my Savior, He is in every part of my life and is my eternal life.
I am here to work on nutrition and help others to be accountable. I do feel I am not qualified to be of help because I can't even help myself but I am open for anyone who needs to report to someone. My problem is weakness in this area. I am not sure what Jesus has for me to get the grip I need and continue a faithful direction. I know temptations are all around us and I believe if He wills for me to change this area of my life it will come.

My Goals:
Winter Nutrition ITC's are about developing healthy habits. We will work on a different one each week.

NUTRITION - HEALTHY HABIT: Eat a Rainbow of Freggies.
From everything we read it is apparent that we need to eat 3 to 5 servings of fruits and vegetables each day.
1. Eat fruit or veggies (freggies) from 3 colors of the Rainbow 5 days this week. (M&M's and Skittles don't count!)
2. Post in your team chat room how you combined your fruit or veggies for one day.

1 point for each day you eat a rainbow. (Max 5)
5 points for posting in the chat room. (Max 5)
Bonus: 10 points for eating a rainbow all 5 days. (Max 10)
Possible points = 20

    It's extremely common to hit a plateau at some point during your weight loss journey. Obviously it can be really discouraging when the number on the scale doesn't move. There is good news — We've got some tips to help bust through that plateau and see the number get lower and lower.

    1) We need to re-evaluate our caloric needs - as we lose weight, our bodies tend to burn fewer calories at a slower rate, therefore we need to consume fewer calories. You will either need to burn more calories or consume at least 500 less calories per day

    2) Getting Back to Basics: Writing down everything we eat in a food journal to make sure we are still on track. Remember portion control is just one key to permanent weight loss.

    3) Moving More: Are you still trying to get in those extra movements like you did when you first started losing weight. Once we obtain our weight loss goal, we sometimes slack off on the exercise a bit. And just go to the gym or use our home equipment and forget to park out a little from the grocery store or maybe walk to it if it is close enough.

    4) Choosing Fresh Foods over Pre-Packaged: fresh over processed is always best. You know what your putting into your body.

    5) Getting in Your Daily Water: Yes that still counts. Make sure you didn't slip back into your old latte' ways and now your adding extra calories by drinking them in. Water is still the best way to go. You can still change things up by adding fresh fruit to the mix.

    6) Stress: Stress is always a factor in weight loss and weight gain. It can go either way. So make sure you take some time out for you. Even if it's just a few minutes in the bathroom to relax in the tub. Just lock out the world and do you...You deserve it!
