Howdy folks. I am glad to be coming back to spark. The craziness of summer is winding down. I wish I could say I maintained my loss, but I ended up gaining 30lbs back. I quit going to the gym. I stopped making myself a priority and worshiped the overtime paycheck all summer. I am not making excuses, I'm recognizing where I went wrong to learn from them.
I had a couple of surgeries for woman problems, which didn't work. So, I'm taking a medical and just getting a hystorectomy in October. No workouts like I'm used to , just walking is in store. But hey, that's okay, I can still control my diet. My goals this time around is journaling, documenting, and measuring my food and my responses to them. Trying new foods is going to be interesting too. I'm still on my journey, and so long as I am learning from it,both good and bad, and actively participating, I'll remain proud of my progress.
As far as making a weight loss goal, I don't know what would be healthy, given my limited physical output. I'm thinking 20-30lbs by Jan. The amount that I gained back, would be a good start. But I'm more intent on learning journaling my food, portion sizes, and water intake, making them habits. Well, if you're reading this, thank you. I hope my spark buddies out there are taking everyday and doing something. xxx
