I really think this system I set up is working. I'm woohooing because I made ALL of my spark goals on my first week. I know weight loss is about the long haul, but not eating out, sticking to my calories, AND exercising the goal amount of minutes and calories (more than that actually) as well as choosing something active to spend my weekend with my husband doing (so far we've gone to the zoo, hiked some trails at the local mountain and worked in the garden together rather than gaming). It was really hard not to go out for the entire week. Once we get stuck in the loop it's hard to pull out, but I have a feeling we'll make it to the 30, 60, 90 day marks. I'm looking forward to my weigh-in June 1st. Once a month for me!
One other woohoo moment...I've found that the rewards system I set up is the most effective craving killer ever. I think about eating something junky and check my calories and think "I can't get my books if I eat that.." and boom, craving gone. I guess my hobbies and books are a better motivator than I thought :P
