With chips and a chocolate bar, that's how I don't know why it is, but it seems like every time I gain a little momentum, I sabotage myself. I really wasn't hungry, so why did I eat the junk?

To help keep my momentum up, I am trying to set up visual cues that will help me stay focused. I've seen these little jars everywhere, and thought it would really help me stay focused. I know I have A LOT to get over to the pounds lost jar, but I will try my damnedest to get them all over there.

It just goes to show, that if I put a little effort in, I can get results. Some of the things I have been working on this week have been:
Portion control (weighing and measuring)
Mindful eating (not just eating cause I'm bored, angry, sad etc)
Moving (although I haven't been to the gym yet, I've taken walks with the kids)
Water (Started drinking 8 cups daily, as oppose to 1-2)
And most importantly, cutting out the fast food and junk.
Next weeks goals are to get back to the gym, and on a regular workout schedule.

After being MIA for what feels like forever, I am back. I have felt ashamed and disappointed in myself, gaining back most of the weight I had lost. However yesterday I stopped feeling sorry for myself, and decided things will only get worse if I don't stop. I need to stop hiding from life by comforting myself with food. I really think I can be my own worst enemy. So instead of hiding out, and being depressed about my lack of self control, I am here to break old habits, and start new ones.
I plan to stop drinking pop all together.
Drink lots, and lots of water
Being accountable by tracking everything that goes into my mouth.
Making better choices when it comes to food
And checking in with Spark, because I know when I don't, that's when the weight creeps back.
Also, slowly but surely, I need to get my butt back to the gym.... just so darn nervous.

After losing and gaining, I felt like I had lost my way a little. I was feeling depressed, and was only looking at the big picture, instead of being happy for all that I have accomplished so far.
Before I never worked out. Ate fast food ALL the time, and lived life in the background.
Now I love going to the gym. I make meals myself at home, and enjoy and get involved in life.
Over the summer holidays I gained almost 15lbs, and was very ashamed of myself for slipping so quickly into my old habits. Now I finally feel like I am on the right track again. I had a bump in the road, but will never give up.
This morning when I got up and weighed myself, I was happy to see that in total I have lost 70lbs since Jan 2013. My next goal is to get to onderland!
The picture quality isn't that great here.
I am very thankful for all of my spark friends, many of you helped me more than you will ever know.
