Guess who finally drug their booty back on here?

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

I'm back, and this time I'm here for the long haul.

I got off track in a bad way. Then last week I decided I am done with fad diets. I am done limiting myself on what I can do. I can do this. And I started again.

Luckily, I only gained 20 pounds. I still have 50 pounds that will never come back. I have 66 to lose to hit my goal weight. It is a little defeating because I WAS at the halfway point a while ago and now I have to get there again. But I am not going to get it get me down. I am going to do this!

I am now working out 4 times a week and eating a balanced diet of 1250 calories a day. I am not restricting anything out of my diet like I was with the Dukan Diet. I really missed fruits and starches and now I can fully incorporate them into my diet while still losing weight.

So, here I go again. I missed the sparkpeople community and I am glad to be back.

    Hey Jenn - a delayed reaction on my part but welcome back :)

    And well done on deciding to ditch the fad diets! Keeping active and making movement a part of your day, even in small ways, is the key to making the difference.

    Sure, you need to limit your calories to no more than you actually need and have a balanced diet, but depriving yourself of something you enjoy only makes things difficult and harder to stick to.

    You will get back to that half way point and smash it in no time!

    Hey, glad to see you're back! I just recently came back too. :) I really did miss it here. Sometimes we just hit that slump, but the important thing is that we're back and in it to lose it. Hehe!
