Today I started reading The Spark. I am hoping it gives me the SPARK I need to get back on track. Why is it so easy to get off track?? I started out so well logging in my foods. I must have decided somewhere down the road I didn't want to do that for the rest of my life because I stopped doing it. I feel I have not eaten as well as I should be when I dont track it. I have realized since then, this is something I NEED to do if I plan on continuing to lose weight. I do know that I was at my highest weight right before Christmas at 316 and yesterday when I weighed myself I was down to 308. I know it is usual to lose more at the beginning of a lifestyle change, but I still felt good about it! I certainly don't want to put it back on so now I need to get back on track..... ASAP! Tomorrow Dad is taking us out to IHOP after his doctor's appointment and to be truthful, I am scared. I know I would love to have a burger and fries and a Coke but I know that is not what my body needs. My downfall is that I am such a PICKY eater. I can't stand fruits or raw veggies. I need to form new eating habits and get busy drinking MORE WATER!!!! I just bought a new 32 oz water bottle, thinking that may inspire me to drink more water but the Coke bottle is sitting right there. Pop has ALWAYS been a part of my life, so I'm not sure how to delete it. I found out the other week when I went grocery shopping that making meals from scratch is so expensive. I know it's better for me but when you are working with a fixed income.... I really need to find some words of encouragement, and SOON!
