Mother's Day 2008
March 30, 2009 at Disneyland
Looking to lose weight and get fit after gaining back 50 pounds of 80 lost.
It's amazing how fast life flies by. And, how fast weight can creep back on. I was so excited to lose 80 lbs on Weight Watchers and swore I was going to keep it off for life. Then, I made the mistake of letting life get in the way. Stress, family issues, and just plain laziness led to disregarding my personal goals and soon I just wasn't interested in following the healthy habits I had accepted. I stopped exercising, stopped jounaling my food, and stopped eating healthy. Now I'm 50 lbs overweight and ready to try again.

Update: 10/06/2008 Almost ninety days along in my healthier lifestyle journey. It hasn't been a pleasure cruise, but I'm enjoying the voyage none-the-less. I'm tracking my nutrition intake again, working out at least three days a week, and drinking my water (which I never could handle before). Another benefit is that I stopped drinking soda completely and I really don't miss it! Trying to be true to myself and stay commited. It's not always easy...especially when I get bored. But, I'm determined to get back to the healthy ME!!!

Start tracking food again, lose weight and make exercise a part of my regular routine.
Tracking my food; staying within my calorie range; trying to eat more fruits and vegetables; trying to exercise at least three days a week; looking to SparkPeople for motivation and accountability.

Hello O2BFITAGAIN, how are you today? I am fine. Beautiful and cold here. I am hoping you are doing well with your goals. I know I only started two weeks ago, I did not rush into 4wks, 2 months at a time, I took it one day at a time. I did plan what I wanted to do, or make a recipe. That is what is fun. I think you are doing great! One day at a time, and let's do what we need to do to have our success! We can do it!

Good morning, I wanted to say hello. I hope you enjoy your day. I plan to. I want to say I also struggled with alot of those things you wrote on your page. For me it was skipping meals( no appetites) pop(I wasn't a "all day" drinker), snack, lack of exercise, and depression. I am hoping to put my negative things behind me and work on my new goals. Thnking of you, and wishing you great success!
