Go!! Quitting Just Puts You Further Behind!

My journey on SP began after seeing a picture of me taken Memorial Day weekend 2009. The picture helped me see how I appeared to the world - not just my weight, but how I carried myself. I lost 50 lbs between 2009 and 2010. I approached my weight loss like it was a long-term project. I never got too disappointed when the weight did not come off quickly and I did not give up when I made the wrong choices. That mindset was the key to my success. I remember the moment I started to let it slip. ...

My Goals:
I do best when I focus my attention to a specific date.
The first "lily pad" January 31. That's 4 weeks from now. My goal is to be exercising at least 4 days per week by that date and hitting 5000+ steps on other days. I've become very inactive so this will be a big shift. As far as weight loss, I'm hopeful for a strong loss the first month as I get my nutrition back on track.

My Program:
Nutrition: Balanced diet, calorie counting and tracking food in SP.

Exercise: Walking, DVDs for cardo C210K app to start running again and strength training.

Other Information:

Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting on my blog. This one was tough to write, mostly because I had to admit how poorly I had been doing. I'm glad I'm back on track and doing good this weekend. It feels fantastic!
