Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Hi Guys, I had started Spark in June and hadn't really fully committed to the awesomeness of SP so I restarted all my trackers and I'm here to try again. I can say already that I've learned from the help of "fitness*diva" that "Failing to Plan is a Plan to Fail". There is no doubt in my mind that this is 100 percent true. It's so easy to get off track when you're not really focusing, especially when you have an accute case of undiagnoised ADHD!
My new plan, well, is to plan. I've started packing my lunches, keeping breakfast light but nutritional, eating tons of greens and making sure that I get enough protein. As far as fitness, if you're interested you can checkout my fitness tracker.
Anyhow, now that I've explained my "restart" you may continue below if you wish to hear a small piece of my story:
I can remember feeling a little more chubby then some of the other kids in middle school. I was active playing sports like soccer, softball, and horseback riding so if I wasn't more chubby I think my appearance may have started my image issues! What can I say, I was a tomboy who really didn't care about my appearances. I was in band, flag core, my idea of a great outfit was a "No Fear" shirt, umbro shorts, KNEE HIGH white socks, and a pair of addidas high tops.... I'm not kidding. Accompanied my my blonde ponytail halfway down my back and glasses I was hot to trot!
I remember really starting to feel the pressure in high school of needing to be accepted. I went to a school with old and new money... which was horrible. If you didn't wear the right clothes, shoe's, or even lunch you were branded a loser. So I started a plan. Shop & Starve. I made sure that I bought a new outfit at least once a week from the hottest store and kept a bag of mini bagels in my locker to eat- just one half (of a mini bagel remember) incase I felt like I was going to pass out. Of course the compliments started rolling out: "Tory, did you lose weight?" "Tory you look great!" "Tory what's your secret. You would think that satisfaction would come from those compliments but only extreme pressure followed. "Don't slip up Tory" "You have an image to keep Tory" "They hate you if you fail Tory". Needless to say from there I tried other extreme measures like little games of let's see how long you can go with out eating. Anyhow to make a long story short I started the use of narcotics to assist me in not eating which lead to a very painful, disasterous, and blinding path of false friends and dangerous enimies. Since a few rehabs, weight centers, and half@$$ attempts to make a difference it's time for
A REAL CHANGE. A REAL CHANCE.
and all that takes is a little "spark".
With all of that said and a extremely personal look into my life... Let's do this everyone... let's take the steps, let's take the time, and let's have the hope and courage to become a
