I have been absent from SP for some time. I had become complacent because I was maintaining and not making any progress. I thought after loosing 120 lbs i could just drift along. Which I did for awhile... Then of course Halloween happened and Thanksgiving...you get the picture. By the time New Year's rolled around I had gained a good 11 pounds and my motivation was out the window. I tried a couple of times this month to get started but I always let food win.
Jan 14th I took a big step, enrolled in the "Just 10" program at work. It is a program that over 10 weeks is designed to drop 10% of your body weight. I think it should be subtitled the "get real program". We have a personal coach/trainer that we meet weekly with. During these sessions, the program is revealed, followed by exercise. I must say I thought I was active but guess what, NOT EVEN CLOSE! I'm not discouraged, I can only get better. I also have to deal with past surgery/injuries so some modification is in order. Planks are hard to do with my right foot after my surgery and squats hurt my knees. Homework consists of walking 30 minutes a day, every day and strength exercises are emailed to us.
Wah,wah for me, right? You are thinking get over it Anne. Yep, I am. I am already 5 lbs down since starting. I also think shaking things up with eating and exercise has jumped started my body. I feel like my motivation is back. I look forward to moving toward my goals and looking good for my daughter's wedding in June.
One other thing, I gave my coach my password so she can monitor me. so no trainer bashing here!!! Hi Randi!!!!
Have a pleasant weekend my fellow Sparkers!!!

Today is Fri, TGIF and fast food Fri. Guess what, I'm still tracking. Hard to believe. I stopped tracking before when it got too overwhelming but right now, I'm still doing this. Went over with my calories last night but I was under for a couple of days and still lost on the old scale. Disclaimer: I had gone up with my weight and I didn't change my ticker. I don't usually change it unless I lose or go way beyond my range. Call me a ticker cheet. Anyway, I'm ready to make progress so I can move my ticker the right direction. Got to go, have a great weekend Sparkers!

Yep, I took the summer off and basically found out I could do maintenance if I wanted to. I also found out that's OK but I'm not done yet. I still have another 50 pounds to lose. The kid's went back to school and it's time to get REAL. I need to track, track, track. It's the only way that I can make any progress. Sooo...on Mon I go back on plan and get a little militent.
Good-bye french fries, good-bye pizza for awhile. They will be worked back into plan when I am a little more controlled. Right now, I eat the appropriate things for the most part but I know I'm out of my calorie range.
Also my XBOX has been on the fritz. I got a new one but I have to download my fruit ninja so I don't lose it. So I haven't got it hooked up yet. It is on my list of things to do this weekend.
I hope everyone had a great summer!
