This or That: Thinner or Richer?

Thinner
Richer
Other

For Me....I'm comfortable just where I'm at. I just want to be healthy so that I can enjoy my grown children and grandchildren.

I tend to take change in stride, but as a manager that sometimes comes back to bite me. I expect my staff to be as flexible as I am but I work with some very structured people who don't appreciate change. I've really had to separate my own responses from my professional ones, since they're counterproductive.

"I can't get there from anywhere but here."

Next Landmarks/Goals:
[ ] Back into the 220's (I told you I'd gained a huge portion back)
[ ] Back into the 210's
[ ] Back into the 200's
[ ] Back to Onederland
[ ] Someday/bucket list goal: hike to Havasupai Falls (and out again...)

It depends on what the change is --- I do feel more comfortable with the familiar; however, there is adventure to be had with the unfamiliar.


Thank you, Almighty God, for providing for us!

Something to know about this gal "Ima" - I follow the Savior of the world!

I stand in awe of the salvation, through Christ Jesus, that Creator God has granted me. May you enjoy the same!

I am so very thankful that the door of access is permanently open to The Creator & His beloved Son, Christ Jesus!

Sometimes. I'm a pretty detailed oriented person and like to analyze things. If the change makes sense I'm all for it. Otherwise I need convincing.

Sometimes change is great! Change can be good or bad,so, I guess that we all have some fear of change because it could be bad and we want good things in our lives.

Do you deal well with change?

Yes--change is great!
No--I like it when things are familiar
Sometimes
Other


For Me....Change is good sometimes, so for me it would be what the changes are. I also like what is familiar to me.

What’s your go-to tactic when you feel unmotivated?

I read inspirational quotes/passages
I listen to motivational music
I look at inspiring images
I get a pep talk from a friend/family member
I log into SparkPeople
More than one of the above



For me....inspirational quotes/passages and pep talks for my family.

As often as I'm on SP, that's pretty rare. More often I'll get inspired by an ad (e.g. fitness band or clothing) and go browse/shop for something like it on another tab.

Do you click on any of the ADs we see on SPARKS? The ads are to help keep SPARKS Free,,,,

1) Over 5 a week
2) 3 to 5 a week
3) 1 to 3 a week
4) only rarely if it's interesting to me
5) Not at all



For Me....not at all.

# 4 is my best answer. Right now Im the biggest I've ever been and cannot accept the way I look. All I can do is keep working and looking for that goal I've set.

How is your body image?

1) I feel great about what I look like.
2) sometimes I can accept my looks, depends on what it is I have on.
3) If someone says I look good, I give them "excuses" as to why, instead of a hearty "Thank you' !! And enjoy it.
4) I do not accept the way I look. Once when I "reach Goal" than I'll like myself.




For me....Now that I have reached my goal weight and I'm exercising daily, I feel great about myself.

Yes, I do. I love to walk. I did my first marathon 3 years ago in a color run. That was so fun and I now enter marathons as often as I can. I see results when I do.

Absolutely.

Any movement that's easy on the knees and requires no equipment is a huge plus!!

Have you visited a dietician and if you have, can you share any insights that might help others?



For me...yes I have on one occassion. Read the labels, be careful of transfats, saturated fasts, cholesterol and sugar content.

Definitely bad. I rarely drink any type of soda anymore, but when I do I stick with the real thing.

Do you think diet sodas are good or bad for you?
(the "authorities" can't seem to decide!)


For Me.....I'm not a soda drinker. I prefer tea or water.

The Nutrition Tracker has been a huge help for me. I always felt I ate quite healthy. Imagine my surprise when I started the program January 1st that I found out I was not eating enough protein and fat! No more "low fat" or "no fat" options for me. I've been very pleased with my results to far. As of today I'm down 25 pounds and would like to go another 10-20. I feel great and look better than I have for ages. emoticon

Yes, although it's just a tool. It's made me more conscious of mindless eating and I am far more likely to make better choices since I'm accountable to myself for everything.
That said, I am not obsessing over it like I have in the past. There are still plenty of things I have to guesstimate but my experience with nutrition allows me to feel pretty confident about most of those numbers, and the scale continues its steady decline so that's good too.

Has SparkPeople's Nutrition Tracker been one of the most effective tools you've used to lose or maintain weight?



For me.....Yes, that coupled with the Fitness Tracker.

Yes one day a week & same day every week, but I still have to discipline myself because even then I can get out of hand.

Do you allow yourself “cheat” days or meals where you eat whatever you want?

Yes, it works for me
Yes, but I think it’s sabotaging my efforts
No, I just practice eating in moderation
No, but I’m curious about them



For me....everything in moderation.
