Well, happy new years to all! I haven't used Sparkpeople as much as I had thought I would since leaving home on November 30th. I haven't tracked my food as often as I should. I have had a gain of 8 lbs over the past month. At home, every week, I go to my Tops support group and weigh in on those scales. Even though I brought my scales with me, somehow getting on there (or putting off getting on there) seems not to carry the same "weight" (pun intended) as getting on the scales at my group and announcing to my fellow tops members how I did that week. I'm tracking my food now and I'm going to open it up for all the world to see my daily tracking on Sparks. I know I can "kick this 8 lbs to the curb" and reach my goal. I know that this 8 lb gain is not anything to be proud of, or happy about, and maybe I'm minimizing it, but I know that I have been eating way better than I used to. And out of a week, I've been sticking to my meal plans four out of 7 days at least. I know that isn't good enough for weight maintenance, or loss, but I know this hasn't been a complete waste. I'm learning, and know what I have to do to turn things around. Here's to a great 2010 to everyone. Let's make this our year to shine!!
