Making Progress....

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

I am definitely making progress. I am starting to feel like I am gaining control on my life again emoticon I am sleeping better, my skin looks better, my attitude is better AND the scale is moving in the right direction emoticon. The changes are happening slowly but they are happening.

I am going to try and make some more gradual changes. I have given myself permission to consume slightly more than my recommended spark calorie range over the last several weeks. I just knew it was going to be hard enough getting back on track that I didn't want to try and restrict myself too much and fail. I have still managed to lose weight however I am going to attempt this week to lower my caloric intake. I will try to actually stay in my recommended range even though it will be at the higher end of my range.

Here's to hoping for another good week emoticon
