Back on Spark
Monday, July 05, 2010
Returned to SparkPeople the other day and started tracking calories and macro-nutrient ratios. Am doing WW but discovered that my point allowance was not giving me enough food to eat and when I lost 8 pounds they took away 3 points. So I am there for another couple months and then I will cancel the online account. Once I get back to my Lifetime goal, though, I might return to meetings. I haven't made up my mind about that yet.
So, after discovering that I was eating around 1000 or less on WW I decided to just track over here and make sure I am eating well and enough food.
I was on here regularly earlier in the year but then my father's cancer got worse and I took a leave from work and went home. I was there with him the last 10 days of his life. That was almost 2 months ago. After watching him fight to the end I decided that I can keep my healthy lifestyle no matter what and it was time to start paying more attention to my food choices.
I have lost almost 10 lbs in the last 2 months which makes me happy. I spent a whole year gaining and losing the same 3 pounds. Now I seem to be on a downward trend that I hope continues.
That's it for today.
