Break It Down

Tuesday, December 07, 2010

I need to break this down... I'm mean really break this down... I see a larger picture and it's too daunting.

I need to consider medical issues. (I keep bumping into them... Or they keep bumping into me!) One doc said, "Get under 200. That's good enough for now." Such a different approach! I want to lose 12 pounds in 5 months... Even that seems like a lot for me! Yikes!

Read an article re: food addiction. Sugar... Oh brother!!! If I substituted veggies for sugar, I'd be golden!

Where's my will power?? I thought I had it... now I'm not so sure...

Break it down... One meal at a time...

    Broken down even further, that's about 2.5 pounds a month. YOU CAN DO IT! If you set up your goal in Sparkpeople and follow the nutrition tracker and Fitness tracker, it'll pretty much do the work for you.

As for sugar addiction, one BITE of candy it too much for me, and a million is never enough. I GET that. I'm right now on day 29 (but who's counting) of being candy free. It's not easy, but it's getting easier as the days go by. Every day I feel a bit healthier, stronger, detoxing that sugar out of my system.

If you need to talk to someone about Sugar addiction, I'm right here for you.

    I break it down one meal, one exercise session, one article at a town. It took the whole Spark package for me to begin to make changes. Using the Spark points system really helped me work on a lot of things at once. It reminds you to enter food, water and exercise and to stay in touch with your support group. It also helps you stay motivated to read and I learned tons from the Spark articles. You can do this but it really does take one step at a time. Look for small steps that you know you can do and track your success and gradually add to them. You can do this and your health is depending on you. emoticon

    Breaking it dowm should make it simpler and more reasonable. Substituting veggies for sugar- now that sounds like an unbeatable weight loss strategy (LOL)!
