I was reading over the entries in my blog from the last time I attempted to diet and whatnot using the Spark! community, and to my surprise, they were all so negative! I can't believe any of you actually read them. It was so nice to see how supportive you all were during that time, though. Today I feel like I really can do it! I am in a wonderful mood today! I started my day with a breakfast consisting of a slice of whole-wheat toast with 1/2 tbsp. almond butter, 3 slices of 97% fat-free canadian bacon, and 2 egg whites. I enjoyed a cup of "Caramel Truffle" coffee with 1 tsp. powdered creamer and some sweet and low.
Since my last post, I have married the man I referred to in my "info" section, and I can't be happier with him! We got married August 15th.
Yesterday, I made a plan-of-action to conquer the 17 lb. I have put on since high school. It is a lofty goal- 17 pounds in 2 months. I am so inspired by my fellow Sparkers that I really feel like I can do it! Having a concrete goal in mind makes me much more likely to follow through with things. I officially started my new, goal-oriented plan today.
No more Mrs. Negativity! I am embracing change, and taking advantage of the time I have right now to work toward my goal. I hope you will all come on my journey with me. My new attitude:

Well, I've gained about 5 pounds in six days. Yes, people, it's possible! It's okay though. I've realized that I can't keep making these fatty meals for my skinny boyfriend, who now actually weighs the exact same as me. 134 or so at 6'2. A lot of my insecurities comes from this fact, as I can't find myself attractive since we weigh the same; he's a FOOT taller than I am, and how can I not crush him? Why would he find me attractive?
I've come to the conclusion that he must not expect anyone to be as thin as he is, really, since if I was as thin as he was to scale, I'd be underweight and look like "Skeletor." He never has made me feel like I'm large; in fact, he tells me I'm perfect and don't need to lose weight. However, this is slightly counter-productive, as he makes it hard to diet. He is at work for most of the day, and I need to control myself while he is gone and if I can stick to making healthier recipes, like those from Spark, I can stay on track and he'll never know the difference. :)
I'm going to the grocery store today. Also, update: I DID the bookshelf!

Well, I've had four days of munching away. Perogies eaten: 48. Yeah.
Today I'm drinking wheatgrass and trying to motivate myself to clean the house and organize my bookshelf. I have all this time in between quitting my last job and starting my new job July 6th, I don't know why I can't seem to motivate myself to exercise and eat healthy and DO stuff I didn't have time to do when I was working.

I got up way too early this morning, or something, because I'd already eaten almost 1,900 calories and that was before noon. I don't know whether it's because I'm a chronic self-sabatour or what, but I lost a pound and by the end of the day, I'll have gained 2!
I'm lonely today. Maybe that's it.

Yesterday started off well enough; however, things slowly spiraled concerning my diet. I went to the grocery store yesterday, and that always excites me. I left in the morning without eating breakfast, and started eating things on the way home from the store.
Well, frozen sliced peaches. Not too bad. Unfortunately, I also bought a bag of 48 cheese and potato perogies. There are about 35 left in the bag now! After looking at my nutrition summary, almost HALF of my calories consumer were from the excessive perogie consumpion. And yes, I went over my calories for yesterday!
Today is a new day. I did eat a bowl of cereal this morning - Kashi Heart-to-Heart cereal, my favorite. And 5 grams of fiber per serving!
Oh, and a sidenote: despite my over-doing it yesterday, I still lost 1 lb. :)
