I joined Sparkpeople a while back with the intention of getting back to a happy size to help me enjoy life more. I got a bit lost on the way when work got crazy, so restarted the Fast Break stages to get me going again. I'm hoping blogging will help me stay on track this time. I think telling people about what I'm doing and how I'm going makes me more accountable and motivated to do well.
So far the best advice I've got on Spark People is the article about excuses - that usually they don't start with 'I' (like its cold, don't want to go out walking). I've used the trick of turning the excuse around so it starts with 'I' and they loose their power (and I usually end up going walking)
This time around I'm doing well with my food and exercise tracking - I still need to work on my portion control and serving sizes - maybe swapping our dinner plates and bowls for smaller ones might be a good move!
