Hi, I've been using SparkPeople on and off for many years but Jan 2017 when both my grandmothers died, I really decided that I wanted to grow old and be healthy. Both of them lived to almost 90s and I'm in my thirties and I felt older than them. I started with just trying to eat healthier then I realized counting calories would probably be better and I realized I was still eating an enormous amount for my height and weight. So I started tracking calories and I've been tracking calories for a little close to a year. I still track my calories but mostly through meal plans so not a constant day-to-day thing. Like I have set foods programmed for a certain amount of calories but when I eat something different, I'll track that meal. I really lack motivation to exercise and one of the main reasons I've come back to SparkPeople is to get motivation to exercise and it's working. 🤗 March 10, 2018= I've been struggling the last two weeks with joint pain, irritability, insomnia and extreme hunger. My thyroid has been going crazy. Instead of running away from my problems, I'm leaning in, I need some support. Thank you Spark for always being there. June 5, 2018 = 167lbs. I lost 100lbs! Having difficulties once again with motivation to exercise. September 22: Thyroid issues again but back on track. Doing classes at the gym, watching calories, reducing saturated fat, sugars. Trying to avoid binge foods! 176lbs

    Hi Sweetie, I added you as a friend. I am proud of you. You are doing so great, Keep up the good work. You don't want to get to be my age and suffer the consequences of poor health like I have had. I have blossomed into a believer of the need to take care of my body. However I am a late bloomer. I guess it is never too late to begin but it sure would have been better had I became a believer when I was younger. At first when I was young it was for the reason I wanted to look better. Now it is for the reason I want to FEEL better. What ever hardship you feel it is to stick with your healthy living plan, it will most definitely be worth it in your older age. You probably already feel a lot better. I sent you a special "goodie" because you are worth it and so much more.
