Sparkpeople has been a great part of my success. I think it is because I have people with like goals and interest to mine. Though none of my Sparkfriends know me personally, it seems they want me to succeed. I know I want them to succeed! I like sharing in the excitement when they reach a milestone. Here you don't get mocked for posting "Headed to the gym" or "Just ate a delicious low-cal meal" it is celebrated. The positive energy here is contagious. Even when I feel off track, I also feel like I can succeed. When I reach my goals, I will have all my sparkfriends to thank. The inspiration, support and helpful advice has contributed to every pound I've lost and will continue on to every pound I will lose. So thank you to all my sparkbuddies! May your journeys be filled with love and support.

Wishing everyone a happy Sunday. I have had a great morning and am hoping to share the positive energy. I woke up feeling energized, went to workout and am feeling euphoric now. The nice "high" after an intense workout. Hopefully, nothing will spoil my good mood. Certainly not having a Harry Potter marathon on ABC Family Today is going to be such a good day.

I went to my gym to exercise and I haven't been there in a while. I've been swimming a lot. However, I pay for the gym membership every month so I figured I would go. I walk in and the owner of the gym says "Wow! Have you lost weight?" I grinned the entire time I was working out, and it wasn't just because I was watching Melissa & Joey, lol. It was a nice feeling. I have been eating above my calorie range but I also have been burning more than the suggested calories. I realized while following the calorie range suggested by SP, I was feeling tired and irritated. Now, I am feeling recharged! I easily burned 1000 calories on the elliptical, something I haven't had the energy to do. I haven't even had the energy to make it to the gym most days, until the higher calorie intake. I need to find the balance, I know that, but right now I'm just feeling good.

I am about to take a trip, again, and I prefer not to repeat last week. This trip is 4 1/2- 5 hours one way, we are staying for at least 2 days maybe 3, and then making the 4 1/2-5 hour trip back home. Any tips on staying on track? How do I control portions on the go? What about for meals while we are away from home?

So the past week was incredibly busy for me and included really early mornings. I'm not a morning person. A friend of mine asked me to help out with Vacation Bible School, and I agreed even though I am NOT a Christian. I had to be there by 8:30 am, I'm usually just waking up around 8, lol. Since we only have one car I had to wake up before 6 am to get ready, get Liam ready, drive hubby to work, etc. I didn't really have time to make breakfast so we ate out a lot this week. Not just for breakfast either. My little step-brother is visiting, too. We went to the Space Rocket Center in Alabama this weekend (was incredibly fun), which was even more fast food. Not to mention Father's Day. Since I had already fell off the wagon, I just caved in. Seems my good sense went out the window this week. No exercise and lots of fast food. I'm way of track, BUT I know that I can and will get back on track. Starting with today, and tracking my food again. I may go over my calories but at least it will be a start in the right direction...I went up 5 lbs last time I stepped on the scale (I'm hoping it was water weight), I am a little afraid to get back on the scale. I know I can do this!!!
