Hi!

I work in fast-food. Enough said you get the picture.

When I started on my Spark journey I had hope, my mind was saying we want the weight off yesterday and each morning I woke up, I woke up feeling it was a bad dream. But no the weight was there. I don't know what happened this time, it was like something snapped inside of me and determination has come flowing through. Especially when someone throws me a curve instead of reaching for a food comfort I am drinking water and/or busying myself on the treadmill, on spark or doing crafts.

So far on my journey I have lost 17 pounds with Spark and that has motivated me to do even more. I am taking full advantage of drinking the water and exercising. I feel in control and I feel so much better. What I mean by that is I have more energy. When I stand up, I stand up. Before it ached to get up off the couch and now WOW I feel so much better. I don't ache and I have the same thing after that 20 minute ride back from town each day...I jump out of the car, I bound up the steps. Its a wonderful feeling.

You might wonder where does the energy come from...it comes from within. I think we all come to the point where from deep within we decide I AM DOING THIS and I AM SUCCEEDING. Dig deep within yourself and find that spot and that time and you can achieve anything. I know I will and I believe all of us together can make it happen.

    I have been on Sparkpeople for a few years and I am ambarrassed to say that I am still lost with this program.
    Can you give me a blueprint or directions as to how to follow? I seem to be all over the place with it and tend to get frustrated alot because I feel lost.
    So the one question I have right now is how to use my calorie intake to lose weight.
    According to this plan I need 1200 to 1550 calories daily.
    And I read that in order to lose a pound a week, I should use 500 less daily.
    So do I now plan on 700 to 1050 calories daily?
    If not then how do I do it? I am pretty confused and it makes me feel like I should know this and yet I just haven't got it.
    Please help me out on this. Thanks and hugs emoticon
