Getting Back on Track

Sunday, March 27, 2011 I've fallen off the wagon. HARD! So I've reset my goals to lose about 15 pounds during the next 5 months, which is not a lofty goal, but I need it to regain my focus. Additionally, those 15 pounds would get me down to being within 10 pounds of being considered "normal weight" as based on my BMI.

One of the things that I prided myself on during this journey was that I was a faithful user of the Nutrition Tracker and it seems that within the last month, I've become sporadic with my use of it. I log in on a daily basis, but I haven't been going in and tracking, probably because I know that I'm not eating the way I should. I've not been doing a good job of portion control either, so I've been sitting around snacking mindlessly rather than measuring out a set portion and sticking with that only. I also allowed the winter to stop me from exercising, but with the longer days and hopefully, warmer temperatures, I'm going to start back walking. I broke my DVD player, so for the moment, I can't do the DVDs that brought me through in the beginning. Lastly, I've started drinking juice in place of water, which is not good. The filter on the tap broke and rather than replace it, I've been buying bottled water, but not nearly the amount that I need to keep me "afloat".

So, right now, March 27, 2011, I'm pushing myself to regain the Spark. This blog is the first step. Pray my strength in this journey....I've come too far (over 50 lbs down) to let this thing go!!
