its been a while, but i'm back

Hi, i'm mickey, and i'm fat.

haha. feels like an AA meeting or something!

a while back, and i do mean a WHILE back, i did spark. i was about 140, and eventually got down to 125, which is what i had been since i was about 14 until 22. last year when i got married i was at my heaviest again at 150, and over the last year i have ballooned to 170-175. i really dont know how it happened so quickly, i think its becacuse i got a full time desk job and finished school, so now i dont do anything ever. eating-wise hardly changed.

anywho... i started spark again. i dont remember much from the first time except that when i first started, the first cut out all diet coke and want to water, lost 4lbs in 5 days. This May, i got my first 2 kidney stones in my life. i've cut all soda and have been drinking between 50-100oz on a daily basis just because i'm so scared about getting another one.

i went for my first walk in years this morning. i thought it was a mile around the block, apparently only .65, but i did that in 11 minutes and thought i was going to die. so my goal is for that to get easier first, then find another route to go 2 miles (need to mapquest a route first, this neighborhood is a little scary).

anyways, i just wanted to lay it all out here so i've got to keep with it so i dont lie to you all about it. and maybe make a few new friends on here to help me out a bit. i did pretty good on my calories for the first 2 days of this journey. i went over the first day, but thats because i finally let my husband win and get chinese. but i only went over about 75 calories, i can deal with that. i was good an only had one wonton instead of a whole side to myself. yesterday i was in range and i even had chicken parmigiana for dinner. i didnt even eat it all, i left about 25% of everything that was served. not bad for a carboholic!

so yeah, thats me. wish me luck. i'll take any and all tips and tricks you want to share.
