First of all, I love reading other people's online journals, because it helps motivate me! Hopefully mine will motivate somebody some time too! :)
I start Spark 8 days ago, and simply love it! What has really helped me is the strong attention to my eating habits. I was making the effort to be healthier, but still eating a lot in general. At least by inputting the foods I eat each day, even if it happened to be a binge, I'm keeping myself accountable. Those pizza rolls I had before bed weren't just a "hope it doesn't hurt me" snack! They made me go over by 500 calories last Tuesday! :)
Even with a huge binge I did have last week, I still managed to lose 3 pounds this week! That was without changing my workout habits and just becoming aware of my food intake.
My goal is to be 160 lbs by next January. Before that, my husband and I will be going home to visit family for July fourth, and I would love to lost an additional 5 lbs for that! That would make me another 15 lbs lighter than when they saw me in March!
