I have been gone for a really long time...

Saturday, April 17, 2010

I must confess I cannot do this without logging into SparkPeople and participating because I really don't have all the tools I need to loose without being here on SparkPeople at least once a day. I do have Spark People for my iphone and I was trying to use that every day to track my calories, and I have lost 17lbs very SLOWLY....because I am not exercising at all!

My goals coming back are:

Get more involved in forums/groups -- get myself some SUPPORT, the support helps sooo much, I am one of those people who always thinks she can do it without anyone.. psh... im crying right now, I am rock bottom, admitting I need support, I do.. i really really do!

Get Exercising & moving my body more!!

Keep balance in my body with making sure I am getting enough nutrients and the right kinds of food & make sure I take my supplements.

That is it so far! Happy to be back and cant wait to get back on wagon lol!!

    emoticon We are so glad to have you back! 17 pounds is a great success - and slowly is the best way to get it off and keep it off! I'm the same way, if I don't keep logging in to SP and talking with other Sparkers, I fall off the wagon very quickly. Keep up the good work and I can't wait to hear about more of your success soon! emoticon emoticon emoticon

17 lbs is emoticon. When I first started this program I was too was NOT exercising but now? Well, all that has changed and I am doing so much better. I know you can get the balance you want and need with a little help from all your spark family.

    emoticon back! SP offers everything you, fitness information and videos, nutrition information and a lot of fun. I honestly believe if you work the SP plan you can get healthy and maintain it. Just remember this is about living a healthy lifestyle not just a diet and dropping a few lbs. You should be VERY proud of the 17lbs you have lost on your own. Now get ready to kick it up a notch and get healthy!

    I joined Spark People in 2006. I left a few short months after - gained weight. Came back in 2008 and left again. Got bigger than I ever have and started this weightloss journey in February 2009 - lost 35 lbs! You are unconditionally loved here - they (we) always welcome you back.

Welcome back and I wish great health to you in the future!

    Welcome back! And well done for recognising what you need to do to succeed. 17lb is great, if you can do that without exercising imagine how the weight's going to fall off when you do more!

I feel like such an underachiever in weight loss. The scale is moving down very very slowly but the scale is moving down and that is a good thing

I have not really been tracking my food, I kinda got a feel of how much of what I needed a day and just thought I knew better, but I don't because my energy levels, are really low I am missing something in my diet & I don't have a record of the last two weeks to take a look and see what I was missing out of my diet... shame on me!!! So back to tracking, back to more exercise during the day, and less of that dumb know it all attitude that I am staying with in my calorie range... so I am good!!! BLAH.... moving fwd.... tracking my breakfast right now... YAY!!!

    emoticon on the 9 lb loss. You have all the tools at your disposal. Tracking is something I struggle with as well. If only I could access this at work. Then I'd never get anything done, well except for logging my food.

Down 8.2!!! I have not been on spark people that much, but have been tracking my food etc. I started working and I think that is helping a lot, even thou it is a desk job I think just the extra moving around during the day, and less chance to snack is helping. I am also making sure I am eating healthy for lunch!!! Also I have been spending time trying to tire out my growing puppy who seems to get more energy every day!! emoticon

I haven't logged in a few days :(

I was tracking my food very carefully but then I just stopped..... I think it has to do with the recipes I make, going in and putting every single ingredient in the food tracker is soooo annoying... I need to figure out a better way.. I am wondering if sparks recipes will let me add my own and calculate everything for me... who knows....all I know is I have been avoiding coming here because tracking my food is tooooo hard when I cook!! aww thats so lame...

Anyways I have a new recipe that I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I will have to share it soon!!

    I know how u feel about not adding things to the food tracker cuz of the recipe thing! But u can go to sparkrecipes & add in all the ingredients & then u put in how many servings & it does calculate it all out for u! & then u name it & save it (u can choose to share it or just keep it to yurself). It is still a little time consuming to punch in the recipes but the good thing is that u only have to do it once! :)

Eeek.... maybe this is stupid but... its helping me!!

This may sound stupid but every week I have been taking a word and making that my theme for the week. It has been kind of working for me.

The first week was Oblivious
My whole goal was to stop being oblivious to everything going on inside/outside my body, mind, soul, search out what I am starving for and give it to myself. I came out with a whole outline of what I need EVERY single day and in every aspect of my life to be fulfilled. I now know what my daily basic needs are and how I can come out of a day and feel completely filled up. Hopefully this will help me to stop over eating to fill myself up.

The second word was Princess.
The whole thing was I didn’t feel like a girl anymore, I felt like this ugly blob, I really honestly wouldn’t even look at myself in the mirror. Well I changed that….with last week… my goal was to look and feel like a princess, to be the girly girl that I am and to stop wearing tattered clothes and hiding behind messy hair and a cluttered house. I removed 7 bags of clothing that were not flattering, did not fit correctly, and they are going to charity. I listened to girly music from the 80’s and went shopping bought a new body soap, got two new crystal necklaces, one was a gift from Chris. I also got 2 new tops a pretty sweater and some cute sandals. Everything I bought had to have some color or some sort of crystal element in it, they had to be affordable (I am on a tight budget here) and they had to be something that I wanted and felt expressed my style and gave me an uplift when I wore them. They also had to stand out a bit, I wanted women to pass by them and say wow I want those!! I got my jewelry out and I started wearing my bracelets/rings and earrings. I refuse to be the girl that does not take care of herself anymore… Oh, I also painted my fingers and toes, yay!!

So this week the word is Reinvent. I am not sure what I have in store for myself this week, I think it probably has to go along the lines of my theme of change already. I feel really good right now and so optimistic that as I start to be more true and honest to myself the easier my life seems to get, things are falling into place and things that seemed so hard to do were only hard because I made them that way.

I think its marvellous....

You are a princess.... and sometimes its hard to start treating ourslves like one.... I know I sometimes buy clothes from charity shops for a change so I can feel that bit special wiothout slashing out too much - and I also feel the money is going somewhere worthwhile as well.

Looking forward to see how REINVENT goes for you....

You go get 'em lass... my pretty princess

take a bow!

    What a great idea!! If it is working for you -- keep it up! I never thought about theme words for the week but I might just give it a try. Do you post the word around the house? If you are anything like me, as soon as I get home from a long day at work everything I want to do when I get home just flies out the window. I get distracted and forget everything I am suppose to be doing!

Sounds like the princess word worked really well for you!! Good luck this week!
