My, my, my has it really been that long? Yes, I guess it has. I spent the last year in a downward spiral. I separated from my husband of 16 years and took it upon myself to eat my way though any thing and everything. I gained 30 pounds last year on top of my already overweight self. So, by January of 2014, I was at my heaviest in my life, needing to lose 80 lbs to get to my goal weight.
I started using MYFITNESSPAL, but found that I really like sparkpeople more and now that I can sync my scale and fitbit automatically (when I use them as I should), I have come back.
I hope to come back to welcoming arms, I mean, what really maters is that I am back at it right?
I have lost 11 lbs since I started the journey again in Jan. I have had good days and bad. I am determined not to let the bad days determine how I will spend the next 6 months eating. If I have a bad day, or bad week for that matter, I am just going to pick myself up, try not to beat myself up over it and get back to business!
So, my ultimate goal is to be at a healthy weight by my 40th birthday in July of 2015. I really think I can do this.
Wish me luck and I hope everyone success in their endeavors!
