Well Sparkpeople, its been a while since I've logged on to this site but I'm so glad I chose to do it today. I was feeling kind of heavy and wanted to recommit myself to working on my weight by exercising and paying more attention to the foods that I eat. At first I was feeling pretty discouraged and seriously lacking motivation but all of that changed when I checked out my sparkpeople profile page where I had posted pictures of myself and my weightloss progress since 2009. When I weighed myself this morning I was 181 lbs. My goal right now is to get down to 170lbs. When I checked out my pictures I was encouraged to see that even though I haven't been focused on losing weight over these last few months, I still have not gained back much of the weight that I've lost since 2009. Yayy!! So even though I feel like I'm starting over....I'm really not. I'm more so picking up where I left off. Thank you Sparkpeople!!!

    Welcome back. If you're like me at all, in the beginning it felt like I was struggling every day, then I became injured and could only do limited amounts to keep up. I was here, but not feeling all the way in until I healed and found the same as you, my weight gain was minimal. And it's an awesome feeling to know that I was actually learning from all the trial and error. You've graduated to a new level on your journey. Keep pushing and emoticon emoticon emoticon

Almost Friday

Thursday, April 22, 2010

Well I have to admit I didn't do to well this week. I had something sweet almost every day. I know the idea is not to starve myself but I have made a comittment to avoid sweets as much as possible as this is always my downfall especially on the weekends. During the weekends my schedule changes, I'm constantly running and my days have very little structure. I kind of eat on the run when I can. No worries though!!! I am going to be more proactive this weekend in making sure I eat the right things and get my work outs in. I'm heading to Phili for my church conference and while I'm there I'll get to see my daughter who is away at boarding school. I'm looking forward to have a great weekend and believe I'll be able to maintain my eating and exercise regimen. emoticon

  yes, the weekends somehow are always my downfall. I try having baggies of vegetables or fruits in my purse so when I get hungry I reach for that first. and no matter what i only eat chicken on the weekends.

hope this helps

  Weekends without structure are a challenge for me too! I do better if I can eat at home, or at least if I know I'm going to eat out, I can plan ahead for where and what to eat.

Last Sunday I realized I went all weekend without tracking. I didn't try to go back-too depressing. So I started fresh Monday morning, tracking and getting on SP. It really helped me "get over it" and move forward!

Monday Madness

Monday, April 05, 2010

Well this is my first blog entry. My goal so far this year has been to change my life for the better and I've been trying to do this by stepping out of my comfort zone. I've never posted a blog so I'm totally new at this but here goes. It's Monday and it's a beautiful day outside. My plan was to go walking this morning. I even put on my walking sweat pants and T shirt the night before but the only thing I did this morning was turn over and hit the snooze button. Now worries though....I'll try again tomorrow. I had a yogurt for breakfast (since I'm trying not to go through the day without starting off with some kind of breakfast) and a sensible lunch....I think. emoticon I've been on this site since February and it's been awesome. The weight is coming off SLOWLY... but I've decided to focus on making small but significant lifestyle changes that I know I can maintain and believe the weight loss will follow. emoticon
