Back on track

Friday, December 02, 2011

Well, after a wonderful Thanksgiving with family, I'm FINALLY back to my pre Thanksgiving weight. It was good for me to see what a few big eating days did and to find out that it took a week to get it all off. I'm going to do much better over Christmas now that I know what it takes to get going again. Needless to say, I'm still at the same weight I was a month ago, but at least I'm there again =)

I'm doing it!

Well, I've been at it for 7 weeks now and it's getting easier for me. I still have my bad days and want to give in, but for the most part....it's GREAT! I especially like the trophies and points that I earn. My kiddos asked me what I get for earning so many points or receiving a trophy. When I told them nothing, they thought it boring; however, it's a great reward as far as I'm concerned. I love the fact that it's all free and that it's working for me. Thank you Spark people!

    Sometimes I feel silly working toward reaching a certain point number or getting a trophy, but even though it is a virtual reward I get the satisfaction that I accomplished something. That motivates me to set the next goal.

I am so happy that it is working for you.

    Your blog is short, sweet and to the point. I feel the same way you do. I don't know what I would do without Sparkpeople. I look forward to coming here everyday. emoticon

Almost caved

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

I keep walking past the Halloween sugar cookies I made last weekend and I almost cave in and bag this whole diet thing. But, I found a quick fix in the fridge, an already peeled cucumber. It was crunchy and only 7 calories, so for now...I'm good! This is the longest I've stuck to anything diet related (just over a month) and I still pretty much bag the weekends since I'm away from home so much, but I'm going to do this, no matter how long it takes!!!!!

    Take it from me, you gotta get rid of the temptations and if your family can support you, they won't mind a bit!

    You blog is interesting. My cookies and sweets use to sit on the cupboard until last week. I put them in the cabinet where I do not see them. I told my husband he is making his own lunch from now on because I will nibble on cookies and potato chips when I make his lunch. He thought is was funny. I was dead serious.

I weighed myself last week Monday and I came back to Sparkpeople last week Tuesday. Reading that scale and seeing those numbers was enough. I weighed myself yesterday and I lost 4 pounds.

How I look at your cookie situation and what I did...OUT OF SIGHT...OUT OF MIND! It worked for me. emoticon

    You can do it! Of course I think it would be easier if you just gave the cookies to someone else to eat.
