My Journey begins
Sunday, May 30, 2010
"I need to lose weight." I have said or thought about it a million times. Now I am doing it. Two weeks ago, I started on my Spark journey and I am happy to say that it is working. Although I still don't see a difference in my size and my clothes still fit the same, I did lose a couple of pounds and I do fell better all over.
Yes, I think of food all the time! I can't get it off my mind. I think about how much time before I can eat again, what I can eat and how much I can eat. It has become a bit obsessive. People tell me that after two weeks it should be easier...I hope so.
The big challenge for me will be to stick with it. Weekends are hardest for me because I don't have a tight schedule. I find that if I am just poking around the house, I find excuses to have another snack. I figured out that if I go shopping or just outside (away from the house) to read a book, I don't even think of food.
Exercise...well, I would like to say I am an active person, but in reality, over the past few years, I started to become relatively sedentary. I now have a plan to track my steps and I challenge myself every day to see if I can beat yesterday's steps. It's actually kind of fun.
Well, I am off on my journey now. Talk to you soon.
