I got on the scale for the first time in 6 months and I am the heaviest I have been except when I was pregnant! It's tough not to get down on myself but I am trying to stay positive.

    Your here... so that is a good thing! Stay positive! It is not a quick fix, it is a journey.... some ups, some downs, but always moving forward.

What an eye opener to actually track food intake

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

Wow, it's amazing how much I eat without realizing it! Today was the first time that I actually tracked my food intake! No wonder I have gained so much weight. My goal is to keep track for a week. I feel good being aware. Seeing the fruit and veggie tracker makes me realize how unhealthy I have been eating. I haven't eaten a green food in such a long time. No sense getting mad at myself. Being mean to myself doesn't help. emoticon

Setting Small Goals

Thursday, December 06, 2012

I started using spark coach yesterday. This morning I set my fast break goals. I can reach them. I am focusing on conscious eating and exercising four times a week. Another goal is to journal three times a week.

Feeling Good

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

This is my third day SP and I am realy liking it. I am surprised how the spark points are motivating me because nothing like that has ever worked for me before. I have really only communicated to two people on this site but I feel really supported. I feel good!

Day One

Sunday, September 25, 2011

Today was the first day for me on this website. I finally got on the scale which I haven't done in over a year. I put 175 as my starting weight as I figured that would be about right considering what clothes I am wearing and how I feel. Well, it was 172. I am ready to face reality and make myself accountable. I am an emotional eater and dieting makes me nervous but not doing anything hasn't helped either. I am going to concentrate on exercising and eating only when I am hungry and trying to stop when I have had enough. Sounds simple but why is it so difficult?
