A little less Amy

I came to SparkPeople on August 20, 2012 weighing 253 lbs. For nine months, I was very devoted to tracking and exercising and lost roughly 50 lbs before I turned 40 last July. Since my birthday, I have been struggling and regained some weight.

April/May 2014: I am trying Jenny Craig for a couple of months. Work is crazy and I need an easy "grab and go" option.

"Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
-- Ralph Marston

Hey Amy,
I get the Eggo low fat Nutri-Grain waffles. One serving is two waffles, but I always have one waffle with 1.5 TBS of almond butter. I love the Fage Greek yogurt 0% fat, full of protein and I try not to use all the fruit they give you on the side to try to keep my sugar down. I am getting hungry just writing it down. LOL!
Best wishes,
Kim

Happy Friday! Control is a tough issue for a lot of us. We can control some of what we do, but we can’t control everything! Keep pushing towards your goals. Even if you do not reach all of them, don’t give up! You can alter your goals or make new ones! Do your best to keep a positive and/or realistic attitude. You are AMAZING and WONDERFUL!

“You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.” – Brian Tracy
