My name is Grace and I live in NM. I finally understand what it means to make a lifestyle change. I lost and regained weight in my first two years on Sparks because I was dieting and then going 'off' my diet. It was the third year that I made a sincere lifestyle change. I now eat whatever I want - in moderation - and I exercise almost every day. I have some ups and downs but they're minimal because I get back into my new lifestyle as soon as the scale goes up a pound or two. Some of my plateaus last longer than I would like, but I'm consistantly moving downward towards my goal. In the last year, I've actually lost weight on a trip- which usually meant a 10 pound gain! I look at my weight loss - not as a destination, but as a journey to good health. It will be a lifelong journey.

    Welcome to the NM Chileheads, Gracie! This is a fun group but we don't limit our discussions to chili. Join us to talk about the weather, our exercise regimens and many other topics. We'd like to help you along on your journey and you can probably help us, too.
