last years jeans are starting to get loose. Couldn't even button them back in June.

Cindy, NC

I have come to the realization that the scale is not my friend or foe...It is only the messenger!

God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, or sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears, and light for the way. If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

Hubby spooning with me with his hand on my waist, he said, "Come on, don't suck it in." My reply: "Uh, I'm not. There's no way to suck in a waist!" emoticon

I got a toddler to eat healthy foods that her mother couldn't last night. I had made salmon with the Weber's Grill Marinade that is Seseme Ginger with orange juice. The toddlers mother said "She won't eat salmon that is not out of a can." LOL I told her to watch and the kid was stealing the salmon off my husband's plate after she finished hers. I then showed the mom, what I had seasoned with and let her try it.

Well, needless to say, what I actually accomplished was sharing a low fat high taste food with another family in a way that they can easily prepare and enjoy. I also shared the asian style green bean recipe that I had made after mom tried it.

My victory was sharing the spark, and hopefully setting a little girl on a better eating path.

What is done is done. I will not dwell on it. I will move on and learn from my past. I love myself.

I logged into SparkPeople after months away. I updated my weight, adjusted my ticker, re-introduced myself on this team, and wrote a blog.

It's a step.

I actually swam a few laps last night! It was only 3.75 laps, but it was more than I have done in a long time. My goal was 5, but asthma started to act up and I am without an inhaler until I can get to the doctor...

Did a bunch of stuff outside for work. Instead of going to the nearest fast food joint, happened upon a store with a salad bar and stocked up on salad & mixed greens (it weighed 0.44 lb.; don't know how much that equals in cups). About to eat it now.

If I absolutely MUST eat fast food/food outside of the house, I'm way more choosy than I used to be. I'll pick the item(s) with the lowest calorie amount(s), stay away from heavily fatty and/or sugary items, and I won't accept soda as part of any meal (usually water).

hugs everyone, hope everyone is having a great day.
non scale victories - feeling stronger and stamina is getting much better, also cheated and checked my measurements before time, and lost another 3 inches emoticon from my neck, chest and waist.
I am on day 18 of the food lovers program, which is great. Its basically Tweaking my food habits, but still being able to eat all the foods I enjoy eating, etc....
Also already surpassed my fitness minutes for the week. Completed 250 mins. + which is awesome. Overall this has been a great week.

Together we can do this.
Best wishes and much success

A month or so ago I went looking for some new jeans. The ones I had been wearing were way too big, but the skinny jeans all looked awful. I was too demoralized to keep shopping. I recently went back to that store, ignored the skinny jeans, and tried on the boyfriend jeans. Not only did I fit into a smaller size, they looked great! I now have stylish new jeans for the first time in years and am looking forward to getting into some of my old clothes soon.

During the last week I've started walking on my treadmill. It was so hard to do 15 minutes at first, but I've started listening to dance cardio on Pandora & it's given me more energy to keep moving. I plan to add at least 5 minutes every week & walk faster. emoticon
