So 3 yrs have gone since my last update here!! a lot has changed in the last 3 yrsíKI am now a single woman again after being married for 9 yrs and it took its emotional toll which of course had to manifest in weight gain. I was at my highest weight in June 2010 at 225lbs but by last year October I had managed to come down to 184lbs and then India happened!! Long story short I am back to 198lbs again. I started working out and am still working on my food intake. I still have to find that dedication I had last year but at least I am in a better place in my mindíKdoes that count? I guess it does!! It makes me happier and more focused.
So my goals for this week are
1. to work out at least 4 days a week and burn 1500 calories in total
2. stay within my calorie range for food
3. track my food and exercise everyday
4. Get in bed by 11 pm latest
5. Restrict added sugar intake
I am reaching out to my friends here to keep me accountable and motivatedíKI know I can depend on them â║

Entry on 28th Oct 2008. still at 204.4 lbs i seem to be losing and gaining the same 3-4 lbs for the past 45 days!! it has me frustrated and irritated but then again its me to blame no one else!!
started 6WBMO 29th Sept and if i had really worked the prog i would have lsot a substantial amount but i keep sabotaging myself over the weekend and all the good work and retraint of the week goes to waste!! why am i doing that??? what do i fear??? some deep introspection required i guess!!!

10 Oct 2008
It has been wonderful..not the weight loss but the change in my mind set. i no longer try to control or predict teh consequence..that is the scale. Now I am focused on what I CAN DO. My goal now is to meet my exercise and diet goals and the rest shall follow.
Lost 4 lbs since last entry.
measurements now:
Neck: 14.5
Chest: 43
Waist:35.5
Tummy: 36.5 (biggest loss here from 44)
hips: 46.8
Bicep: 12.3
Calves: 16

total inches lost since Aug 31....8"
Nov 30, 2008
exercise target was 1730 min..a very ambitious one as it meant almost 70min 6 times a week...i ended up being 315 min short of the goal, yet it was 1405 min of hard core exercise. i can now run for 15 min straight and burn about 500 cal in one cardio session.
STILL i lost only 3 lbs and NO inches!! i will focus on what i can control and that is my workouts and my diet the rest will/ has to follow!!

Hi Tara - Been a long time. Like you, I have been also been absent from SP and living a healthy lifestyle and getting more and more disgusted with myself. I was trying to get up the nerve to come back to SP and let everyone see how I can't seem to achieve my goals :( I know everyone is great on SP and all everyone does is support each other and I missed everyone but I can't seem to stay accountable to myself.

Let's do this together :)
