January 2014 and trying to get back in shape after the excesses of December

Hi, I'm Julie. I am 54 years old and have had to watch my weight since I was 13 years old when I realised I was fatter than everyone else.
It's been a constant battle ever since and although I've had some success and never been grossly overweight, I do put on weight so easily that I have had to be very, very careful all the time.
Things got a little out of hand over Christmas and New year in 2010 so I needed to get back in control (for the 50+ time) and shed 8 pounds. It doesn't ...

Things got a little out of hand over Christmas and New year in 2010 so I needed to get back in control (for the 50+ time) and shed 8 pounds. It doesn't sound much but if you are not in the right frame of mind losing any weight at all is impossible.
Well.... amazingly, with the help of Spark People I did it, in fact I lost 11 pounds!!
I didn't keep it all off permanently and have, from time to time, returned to Spark People to get me back on track. and generally speaking each time I commit to monitoring my food it works. Over the second half of 2013 my weight crept up again and on 1 January 2014 it reached 117.8 pounds, the highest for 3 years. I decided to commit to calorie counting and am back on Spark People I hope to be back in shape by the end of January 2014. Target 110 lbs. This time I'm also following the 5-2 diet.

Thank you for commenting on my blog. This journey has been incredible and Spark Friends and the community were such an important part of it. Posting a blog touting a 50 lb. weight loss was something I used to only dream of. Thank you for being there as my dream came true! Spark on!
Have a fabulous day!!
