I have decided that it is time to get back on track and live a healthy lifestyle.
I have not been one that can ever say I am on a Diet and stick to it. Every time I do all I think about is food and all I want to do is eat and I have cravings and munchies All the time.

I have been on spark before and I know this is the best place to be, the problem I had before is never being consistent and stay dedicated to logging in everyday and keeping track of what I was eating.

I have decided that it is time to get back on track and live a healthy lifestyle.
I have not been one that can ever say I am on a Diet and stick to it. Every time I do all I think about is food and all I want to do is eat and I have cravings and munchies All the time.

I have been on spark before and I know this is the best place to be, the problem I had before is never being consistent and stay dedicated to logging in everyday and keeping track of what I was eating.

I have made a commitment to myself that I will take even just 10 mins a day to log everything I eat and the exercise I do so I can stay on track and be accountable to the most important person ME.

The other thing I have done this time is there is a challenge going on at work the healthy lifestyle challenge.
Basically what it is all about is your get a team of 8 people together we all weighed in on Jan 28th. The challenge goes till April the team the loses the most weight gets 100.00 donated to their favorite charity.
So I thought this is perfect it motivates me to stay accountable to myself and also to my team.

So right away I knew I needed to sign back up here at spark plus I encouraged my team mates to do so too.
My first week on spark I was within my calorie range every single day the only thing I really changed was cut out the snacking on the junk food at night in front of the tv one of my most favorite thing to do
. But I registered on spark On Jan 27 I weighed in at 187 pounds 1 week later On Feb 2nd I weighed in at 178 pounds That is a 9 pound loss!!
I was at first shocked I stood there for a moment then the dance was on my 3 dogs were barking and jumping up and down right along with me lol.
That is the biggest loss I have ever had in 1 week and all it took was for me to be honest with myself and keep away from the potato chips.
So I have set my goals short term and Long term and lifetime I have kept it real so I do not get discouraged.

I love life and I live every moment to the fullest.
I will always be accountable to myself every single day.
