Today I am starting anew. I got weighed at the Doctor's yesterday and got a rude awakening I read some motivational tips and signed up to do some things for the next 2 weeks just to see if I can make it work again. I have not been drinking water at all for quite some time, so that is going to be quite a challenge just to get that done in a day. Another thing is to exercise 10 minutes a day. That does not seem like much to some, but to me it is a big goal, just to get doing it. I have a treadmill here, so there is really no excuse not to do that at least. The other goals are going to be pretty easy, I think. As usual taking the time to track my food is not easy for me. I lack the discipline to take the time to plan my meals ahead, and then to stick with my plan and not go off course whenever something seems easier to do. It was interesting to read that when people "dieted" rather than ate "healthy" they lost less weight. I know that I have a diet mentality and if I can't do it perfectly, I just don't do it at all. Well as it said in another bit of advise 80% is good, so I guess even 60% is better than blowing it all together and you never know that 60% might just turn into 80+%. Let's see how it goes. I am going to count on my Spark friends to help me along on my journey.
