DarkOrange is sparkin!

Hi, thanks for visiting!
Like so many of us-the effort is on and off, repeat. But here I go again...on. I must say there is a lot of bad new habits I've picked up, emotional eating gone wild!!, so I will be taking time to unlearn those and gain better balance. Anything and everything is the game plan to see what works. Being over 300lbs is difficult. I've never felt so bad and I don't want to feel like this anymore. I am pretty sure that I had a hormonal switch about a year+ ago along ...

Anything and everything is the game plan to see what works. Being over 300lbs is difficult. I've never felt so bad and I don't want to feel like this anymore. I am pretty sure that I had a hormonal switch about a year+ ago along with moving less (because you feel so tired and a real struggle to move) that packed on what I had lost plus gain. I just got engaged, but without a ring, so is that technically disqualified?! I don't want a ring at the weight I am at. I would like to see at least 75lbs gone before I consider the investment, really.

So it is what it is. I'm glad spark is here and hope to see you around.

My Program:
log, log, log !- it is the only way that I can analyze what is working and what is not!

BE REALISTIC
I can not eat 2000 calories each day and expect to lose weight. Some fellow SP member said "you can have 1 of 2 outlooks each day when you awake. 1) get out of bed and realize you made great choices the day before and today you will do the same; or 2) get up realizing that you already regret how you messed up the other day.

IT IS TIME TO THINK AND ACT DIFFERENTLY to make change happen!

move, move, move!

Thank you for reading and leaving a comment on my blog. Yes a 100+ pounds to lose can be a bit discouraging but we can do it. Love your ideal of taking it a week at a time and to change one thing a week. Wish you success with your weight loss journey. Have a great day! emoticon
