My Return!

Sunday, January 08, 2012

My long absence from Sparkpeople has taken its toll on my body. I now weigh more than I ever have. The Christmas holidays didn't help with weight loss either. I now have begun anew to watch what I eat and to exercise more. I hope I can lose a lot of weight with the support of everyone here.

I had fun ice skating today. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed this activity. I was extra happy when I saw how many calories it burned up!

    Welcome back!! Wake up each morning knowing that you have been given a new chance, put a smile on your face, give yourself a little pep talk because you know you can do this and get your day started with a happy thought, and thank God you have this new day. Before you go to sleep each night, thank God for the day you have just had and give yourself a pat on your back for a job well done...that you did the best you could for that day.
Putting God first, know that you are in control! You are working toward making yourself a healthier you. You can do this!!!

First Goal Met!

Wednesday, April 25, 2007

Today I have officially lost 10 pounds! I am very excited! I can't thank Spark people enough for giving me the tools I needed to succeed. Thank you everybody!!


Back on track

Well, I have managed to shed the pound I gained over Easter. I am glad to be back on track again. Hopefully some more pounds will continue to fall off. I was surprised at how much gaining that pound back on Easter bothered me. I will be more careful on holidays in the future!

Easter was not so kind to the scale. I knew I was going to eat more but I was still hoping to at least maintain my weight. I didn't succeed- gained a pound over last week. Oh well, as long as that doesn't happen again this week I can get back on track with losing weight. I certainly enjoyed all our special foods for Easter! I think the brownies and the coffee cakes did me in. It sure is amazing how fast the weight can add on and how difficult and slowly it comes off!!

    We ate out three times in two days and I gained two pounds! I don't even remember eating that much! I watched it yesterday and today and I hope to have lost a little. Seems unfair! Sorry for whining-I just know what your going through!

Today I have officially lost 8 pounds. My weight loss is slower than I anticipated but I am thrilled that I am Losing weight at all. I expect to make it to my goal but just at a slower pace than I first envisioned. The food tracker has really helped me to watch my caloric intake and the support of all the people in sparkpeople has been great! Thanks everybody.
