One Step at a Time

I've been on Sparkpeople off and on since August 2010, but I recommitted just before Christmas 2012 through April of 2013 - did great and lost about 15 pounds for the year. Then I promptly went into overdrive at work and completely off balance. I have started working out again and being more conscientious about my eating habits. The balance to keep everything going is the hardest part - but I am working out 5 times a week minimum and have people to check with to keep me motivated. Oh - and ...
I've been on Sparkpeople off and on since August 2010, but I recommitted just before Christmas 2012 through April of 2013 - did great and lost about 15 pounds for the year.

The balance to keep everything going is the hardest part - but I am working out 5 times a week minimum and have people to check with to keep me motivated. Oh - and having a future date fixed for an accomplishment helps too! I love the interaction of the Sparkpeople community and look forward to my journey as well as the end result! Hopefully I will be better at my interaction as I've worked on finding balance.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm lucky to have sweet people in my life who want the best for me. I just didn't realize how many there were until I posted that picture!

Thanks for your thoughtful comment on my blog. I would say that maintaining for me at this point may be a bit easier than losing weight in the sense that my stress level has gone waaay down. I didn't even realize how much I was stressing about food until I didn't have to be that way anymore. Just it's tricky when I feel like I've finally found cruise control and then I hit a speed bump, ya know? But I appreciate your support on the numbers thing and am glad to find someone else who functions the same way. I feel like the uptight one around here sometimes!
