I love SparkPeople
Tuesday, March 22, 2011
I love this. I really do. I've never been so excited and motivated to lose weight... and I owe part of that to SparkPeople.
I especially love this blog feature. I'm that kid who writes everything down always. I've kept a daily journal since before my freshman year in high school. This is PERFECT for me.
I guess here's a mini backstory on why I'm doing SparkPeople now.
Mid-February, I joined SparkPeople. I didn't really commit to it, but in the next month I did manage to lose 8 lbs. So that was great, but then Spring Break started, and I went home... and I started binge eating/emotionally eating like crazy. It was SO bad. and i felt miserable, but I couldn't stop myself. And so next thing I knew, I gained almost everything back in just a week of spring break.
So now I'm back at school, and I'm starting over. And I'm doing things right so I don't ever fall back into old habits and binge eating again. I really just want to change my lifestyle... I'm ready.
Sooo I finished my first day yesterday! It went really, really well. I ate right the whole day. I drank 8 glasses of water (first time ever! I'm not a water fan...). And I even worked out for an hour and a half. So now I'm sore, but it's definitely worth it. Is it weird that I like feeling sore? It makes me feel like I actually did something..
But the best part was that yesterday I just felt happy for no reason. I was in a good mood, I felt energetic. I didn't cringe when I looked in the mirror. I know it's just one day, but my mentality is already changing.. I felt this way last month when I was losing weight, so it's nice to see things working again.
I hope y'all had great days, too! Try to stick with it, I know everyone can do it :)
