So in previous years, I've always dreaded the new year, because it always meant resolutions that I was bound to break, and a new diet to start. Not anymore. I purposely decided to start back on SP during the holiday season, because I figured that if I could stick to that, I could stick to anything. And I've been sticking to it. Deciding to track my food 5 days a week instead of 6 or 7 is my key. I know it wouldn't work for everyone, but when I know I have those two days to look forward to, it's soooooooo much easier for me to stick to the other five. So this year, I will be starting the new year, having lost 5 pounds the last couple of weeks of December, with the plan to just keep doing what I'm doing while gradually adding more exercise, as my body becomes able to handle it. I did 15 minutes on the elliptical, which, frankly, is nothing less than a miracle for me.
