Jesus said, Love one another as I have loved you.

�The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.� The Lord redeems the soul of His servants, and none of those who take refuge in Him will be condemned� (Psa 34:18�19, 22).

Each Day Is A New Beginning.
When You Draw Close To God, God Will Draw Close To You.

Spark People Team Leader, GLITTERGIRL, from Team, "I Can't Do This On My Own", helped me reach my goal in 2012. I was able to maintain my weight for several months, but now I have to get serious again as much of my hard work I let go of, putting my focus on another issue. I will keep on, until I get back to my goal.

Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change. Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us.

2. Lose 2.1 pounds, at least. (I gained weight in February--this has to stop)
3. Continue to exercise 3 to 5 times a week
4. Work on organizing sewing room better.
5. Continue to put together my Grassy Creek tops and get ready to quilt them.
6. Quit mindless snacking.

I think I have achieved the "sweet spot" with regards to my daily goal. 20,000 steps per day or a weekly goal of 140,000 appears to be the numbers I need to achieve. Coming to this conclusion has been a part of my lifestyle change journey that I embarked back in 2009 so I continue to re-adjust my goals as necessary. My goal is to continue keeping my Active Minutes above 120 minutes per day. I will also be tracking my mileage with my goal to walk 9 miles per day. I will also be tracking my floors climbed but as I don't really encounter many floors in my travels so I will be interested in seeing how high I can get this number on a daily basis. Keep moving people, I know I will! DON'T GIVE UP!!!

I love all the activity on this thread! Welcome to each and every one of you and I hope that you accomplished your goals this week. I WOULD LOVE TO GIVE A BIG THANKS TO ALL WHO JOINED THIS THREAD THIS PAST WEEK! We were an amazing 39 strong this past week! This would be four less than last week.

We are still #1 in the Computer & Electronics category?! That continues to be amazing! As of the posting of this post, we are now at (drum roll please!) 140,981 members strong! Incredibly again, that is 75 more than last week! Compared to last week's membership increase, that is 8 more than the previous week. We have blown the doors of the 140,000 level and now are literally knocking on the door of the elusive 141,000 level. Wow! This continues to be mind-blowingly impressive!

For those who may not have heard the news. FitBit was purchased by Google recently. According to the CEO of FitBit nothing will change. I will keep close tabs on this recent change of events. UPDATE: I recently had to get in contact with FitBit's Customer Service and I am happy to report that my experience was extremely positive.The Customer Service rep went above and beyond the call of duty to assist me. One thing that did stand out is that they have access to the back end of their products and can follow what your device is doing night or day. So if your device is acting strangely, call them, they can walk you though the issue and assist you.
UPDATE TO GOOGLE PURCHASE: It appears that the new Versa 3 may soon become integrated with Google's voice system?! I will share more news as it becomes available.

I was recently playing with the FitBit App for Windows and clicked on the floors portion of the app. There I found a link that offering more information on how this data was calculated. The page is called "How does my FitBit device calculate my daily activity?" and it is a wealth of new information regarding how the various data items are calculated and collected. I was familiar with some of the information but the description of how it is used to calculate your personal data was fascinating. This is a recommended quick read. (And, careful, don't fall down any "rabbit holes" while there!) Here is the link for the page:

emoticon Welcome to all of our new team members and thank you for joining our weekly steps goal!!!

I continue to love my Ionic watch. Even with its strange quirks. This past week my Ionic watch's step count was 19,335 less steps than my One or a -10.18% difference! I do not do a lot of hand movements during my indoor walking periods. I truly though this was the reason for the lack of uniformity when counting steps; however, now I think we need to add spatial movement to the mix. If I move around while walking indoors my steps register but if I step in place, steps are registered very sporadically. The mystery deepens.

It appears that even for the top of the line watch, Ionic, activities involving the hands continue to contribute to the step count. (I wonder if Apple Watch users experience the same issue?) I continue to compare the data and the steps, distance, active time, floors, and distance are relatively the same. The calories are very different and I think that is more due to the heart rate device on my Ionic miscalculating my calories burned. I tend to trust my One's calorie calculations much more (although I am starting to think that the Ionic's calorie reading might not be as out of line as previously thought. I need to do more investigation into this emerging idea). emoticon

FitBit is now shipping orders for its new smartwatch called the FitBit Sense. The FitBit Sense is "the advanced health smartwatch that helps you tune in to your body with tools for stress management, heart health, SPO2, skin temperature, and more." The smartwatch has "an app to monitor electrodermal activity which may indicate your body's response to stress." There is also an app that assesses your heart for "atrial fibrillation (AFib) a common heart rhythm irregularity." The smartwatch also monitors your skin temperature. Plus it does all of the other great stuff that a FitBit smartwatch does. The watch is pricey ($329.95) but might be worth the price for all of the information it will be able to provide. FitBit is also shipping the "new and improved" Versa (Versa 2 to Versa 3) and the Inspire (Inspire to Inspire 2).

I still continue to lose more weight. I attribute my recent weight loss to a change I made in my eating habits. I love to eat and I never seem to get full. I have to make a very conscious effort to monitor my calories on a daily basis. I begin my day with a light breakfast, some milk and some type of egg sandwich. At work, I don't eat during my breaks, instead choosing to use this time for walks inside our building. I listen to podcasts or music and use my phone to catch up on emails, read, and play games. I find this is very helpful in achieving my daily step goals since I stopped attending the gym (Due to a recent lifestyle change). I drink 6-9 cups of water during the day and eat my "lunch" in the evening. I will have a small dinner later in the evening. I have been also trying to get to bed earlier so this change has definitely helped, too. All of this has resulted in a noticeable drop in my daily calories and my relationship with food. I have literally cut close to 1,000 calories on a daily basis (and sometimes have to push myself to hit 2,000 calories! This is a good change and one not certainly for everybody (or anybody in fact) but it appears to be working for me.
UPDATE: I continue with following this radical plan and it continues to work for me as I am losing more weight. I have dropped 34 pounds in the last eight months! Also, I have done some further research into this new lifestyle of mine and think my method can be classified as fasting. Now I am not starving myself, I am merely choosing to stay away from food for a certain period of time. I am still getting all of my necessary nutrition on a daily basis. I am really loving this lifestyle.
UPDATE TO THE UPDATE
I am truly amazed at how this change in eating habits has positively affected me. I have plenty of energy, find myself sometimes "forcing" myself to eat, and getting much more sleep. While my initial foray into the healthy living world back in 2009 was life-changing, this intermittent fasting lifestyle has been life and mind-altering.
UPDATE TO THE UPDATE TO THE UPDATE
I continue down this path of delaying my lunch and dinner to the end of my day and I continue to enjoy success. The recent holidays did proved to be challenging but following this path has allowed me to get back on schedule with my healthier lifestyle. I am truly pleased with these results.

ADDENDUM: I continue down this "fasting" path and have maintained my recent weight loss. I am amazed at how this one change has impacted my life.

ADDENDUM TO THE ADDENDUM: I have been doing some more research on intermittent fasting (or IT) and now subscribe to the 20/4 plan. Basically I do not eat any meals for 20 hours and then do all of my eating in a 4 hour period. I no longer eat breakfast and now do all of my eating from 6-10pm. This has allowed me to maintain my weight and my lower calorie intake. I sometimes do graze during my non-eating period but it is a hard candy or a piece of fruit. There is also a 16/8 plan for those who want to split their eating between two meal periods. Intermittent fasting has really been a life-saver in my continuing quest to maintain my health.

Our organization is starting its annual "Let's Get Healthy" drive and part of this drive is a push to lose weight. Losing weight can sometimes be very simple while the hard part is keeping the lost weight off. Often times, in our quest to lose weight, we attempt to follow a current fad or try to remove something from our diet. Having been a SparkPeople member for over 10 years I understand that this is not the solution. The solution to losing weight and keeping it off is moderation and activity. Duh, right but these really are the keys to losing and maintaining weight. With this in mind here are some articles that address these issues.
But whatever you do, don't give up hope if you "fall off the wagon." Tomorrow is another day to re-start your journey and pick-up where you left off.
AND REMEMBER, KEEP MOVING! emoticon

Here are some articles that I have found very helpful in my quest for a healthier life. Enjoy!

I was active for 1,054 minutes this past week or an average of 150 Active Minutes per day. I traveled 83.56 miles this week for a daily average of 11.94 miles per day and I encountered 27 floors in my travels. I am ready to move on to next week, I hope that you are, too.
