grabbing ahold of SparkPeople, and not letting go...

Thursday, December 29, 2011

I have just a moment but I wanted to share that I did w/o extra calories yesterday, starting what I call a Reset. Today is day 2 and I woke up feeling perky, and much better physically.

I watched the Dr. Doctors earlier today and was really imspired to grab ahold of "SparkPeople" and not let go! 2011 was the year I let go of WW one more time, only because of the cost. I asked John to buy me a new scale and as the Fall season showed, I weighed myself to get a better idea of where I was in addition to how my clothes felt.

My clothes felt tight and unsightly. I can't wear sweats to work but I can keep an eye on what I'm eating, how much, and when I'm eating. This revelation is no surprise, I just kept trying to do it by myself.

So instead of making a New Year's resolution or going on a diet, I decided yesterday to let go of eating so much and follow the reset belly diet in my new Prevention. I tweeked it to fit me (I'm 62 after all), and woke up feeling better than yesterday, not so sluggish.

I'm grabbing ahold of the only thing I know to do, and I'm not letting go! So I'm not usually into giving advice but if you are younger than me, and you are on the road to a healthier lifestyle, don't let go of it. Trust me...it's much easier when you get older.

Have a great day, thanks for reading this, and Happy New Year,

Sandy

    Good for you Sandy! I have been on maintenance for almost two years and Sparkpeople is the reason why. I have needed nothing else. Faithfully tracking food and fitness is the key.
    Measuring and weighing everything I eat so there is no excuse for going over my calorie range.
    Here is to a healthy, happy and Sparking New Year!

    It does feel good to "reset" or "get back on track" or whatever we call it.
    I got back at it Monday and feel great. I'm not letting go either=)
