I haven't posted a blog entry for a couple weeks now, so just wanted to do a quick post to say that I am still here and haven't fallen off the wagon! I officially started my healthy lifestyle (I refuse to call it a diet, since I see this as forever and not temporary) here on SparkPeople on January 26, 2011. At that time, I weighed in at 183 pounds. (My all-time highest weight was 194 pounds, which I weighed this past summer).
Since January 26, I have been logging into SparkPeople daily to track my nutrition, add in those fitness minutes and accumulate points (I must say that those points are addictive)! For the very first time ever, I feel that I have found a program that is sustainable and is not a short-term fix. Wednesday of this week will be the 2 week marker and I plan to post a longer blog that day about the first two weeks - but for now, I will just say that I am so thankful for SparkPeople and especially the community that it provides. There is nothing better and inspiring than to have strangers rooting for you and providing such motivating and kind comments!
