I joined Sparkpeople in January of 2012 and proceeded to lose a bunch of weight and achieve my goal of swimming in the www.lowcountrysplash.com A swimming race that is over 2 miles long!
Success! I was so proud, I even won my age group! So, what did I do? I ate and drank myself to oblivion for the rest of the summer, gaining back 10 of the pounds I had lost in the first place. I am inclined to give up, keep eating, and drinking. Beer sure is good!
But, winning that race sure felt good too. But, eating right and exercising is so damn hard.
I subscribe to the "all or nothing" philosophy of life. Life is black and white, right? I am either in shape or out or shape, fat or skinny, going up or going down, successful or a failure, etc. There is no happy medium for me.
So, now I am trying to blog for the first time. They are pushing it hard on Sparkpeople, so I am going to give it a try. It has got to be better than hitting the fridge while I wait for my kids to fall asleep. Today is the first day in over two months where I wasnt over my calories for the day. I think this blog might have helped.
I wonder if anyone is listening.
