Where has the time gone?

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Feeling a little pathetic here :( I have sooo neglected SP for a long time. And very discouraged that I have let myself gain all the weight back. My husband is pretty much begging me to start eating healthier with him and all I am thinking is, how will I live without my JUNK FOOD that I have grown to love again? The only thing that makes me feel better after a stressful day at work is a big bag of popcorn and a Coke. Looking back at the progress that I have made, made me realize that I can do this again. We can both do this again. It will be hard, but I have to do it, for him at least.

How can I get back to the way I was before? Wow, I was looking back at my pictures of when I was 200 pounds and I looked pretty Darn good. So that is a little under 30 pounds that I have to lose. If I can't do it for myself, I at least need to do it to support my husband. He is getting ready to take his Level 2 fire fighting class and he has to be in Tip Top condition....

So, I need some advice, how do I start this again?? I mean, I KNOW what to do physically, but do I do this??

Going to make a small, little goal for myself. Starting off small counts, right??

1. No POP at work!! My work makes it sooo convient for me to grab a Coke or Mt. Dew. 50cents for a can. I drink at least 2!

Grrr. I can't think of anything else that I can commit to right now. That is sad :( Honestly, besides the occasional popcorn and eating out, I really don't eat THAT bad. I need to start exercising, but cant find the time or energy to do it.

2. Start tracking my calories again. Obviously, I am thinking that I am eating okay, but maybe, JUST MAYBE...I'm not :P...MAYBE I am lying to make myself feel better :PPPPPP

Help me out my friends!!! This was very therapeutic to me, but still need some help :)

    Follow the Spark plan and don't think about "last time." Find 3 goals (small) and start a streak. I like the goals of limiting your soda and tracking your food. Your 3rd goal could be TO POST ON THE DUCK THREAD EVERYDAY!!! You don't have to write a book, just take 5 minutes and update us on what is going on. Spark has a great plan and if you start with the small changes and get a streak going, your mind will be in the "game" soon enough.

    Hey Bryn, nice to see you. I think that stopping the pop at work is a very good first step. Seriously, stick with that one for a week and then add something else. Starting tracking again is no minor goal, either. Go easy on yourself, lady! I'm glad to hear you have your hubbie's support and I say find at least one reason you want to do this for you! You could always start the sparkpeople stages over again, too, start from whichever level you want. I did that a few months ago, it was kind of fun. I'm not that into the points, but it was nice to be reminded of things that help through articles and motivating pages, etc. Keep blogging! It'll help, too. You can do it! --Jes

    OK...see?! I just tracked my calories for the day. I am within my calorie intake, but everything else was HORRIBLE!!!! Most of my calories went towards all the pop and the Philly Cheesesteak, I am def. eating horrible :(

Any advice?
