Celebration Time

Friday, December 12, 2014

Yesterday I celebrated 5 years at my goal weight....My happy weight range...as most know the scale goes up a pound or so and down a pound or so everyday....You can hold your happiness on what the scale tells us.....it took me several years to figure it out...lots of good times and some not so good time....
I have been with Spark people since 2006, it took me 3.5 years to loose 200+ pounds and now I'm celebrating 5 years at keep those pounds off.......

Most ask how I did it...."people say what is the secret to loosing the weight and keeping it off"

I have to admit there is no secret, you have to find a plan that works for you that involves eating less calories than your body needs, and then with the help of exercise you have to find a place where you can loose the weight and or keep the weight off....It's a balance act....one that can change a lot...

as you loose weight you have to eat less....really the less you weight the less food you need....the more you exercise ...the more you have to find ways to exercise..our bodies get use to the same old exercise...so you have to change it up....you have to do more exercises....

Now that is the problem most people have....you figure once you have lost the weight...you should now be able to eat normally or what you think is normal.....This is not true for me....I have had to stick with limited calories most everyday....I log all my food.....
I had to keep doing the 120-150 minutes of aerobic exercise at least 6 days a week....

This seems like a lot to ask a person, but it is what it takes for me to keep he weight off...I suspect it will be this way for the rest of my life.....

I will always have to watch myself.....but if asked I would say it is worth the price of being healthy...of keeping the weight off....

This is what works for me.....not so sure it's for everyone but it is for me...

Thanks for all the goodies and well wishes from my spark friends...YOU HAVE HELPED ME GET HERE AND STAY HERE....I ENJOY YOUR SUPPORT EVERYDAY.... emoticon
