It is snowing here. I know some places routinely get tons of snow but for middle Tennessee, 3 inches is a major event. I tried to post the photos I got this morning...but this program says they are too big. Maybe I can find a way to resize and post..I am not good at manipulating the photo programs on my computer.
Today was weigh-in for my first week since I decided to reevaluate everything. I have been on SP for nearly three years. I have actually lost 16 lbs..and if all were as it should be, I would be well on my way to my goal. BUT...as of today, I am right back at my original starting weight...and that with the two lbs I lost last week.
The scale read lower last Friday. I am not discouraged (granted, was a little annoyed this morning!) but I KNOW I must do this. Seeing my friends and others work so hard and see the lbs roll off ...and realizing that I have been on SP for so long really got my attention. There are many here who lose over 100 lbs in less than a year. Obviously, what I am doing has not been working.
SO, last week I began this journey anew. I am tracking my food intake...which I have done off and on for a long time. I am trying to boost my physical activity level...also something I have been working on for some time. Now I must do it more consistently. I really need results.
It is positively ridiculous that I KNOW what to do, KNOW how to do it, and still am sitting at the starting gate. I do know I am more healthy now than three yrs ago. I did have a health event I would have preferred to have skipped. Still, no excuses. I have been coasting along, enjoying Sparkpeople but not applying what I know to my own advantage.
So...week one...two pounds "officially" gone...again! Yea, me! I might add, that I FEEL great...and also feel all the tweaks I am achieving with the added workout efforts! Eek!
PS...it is snowing again.
