I believe every time I do a blog I am starting over and ready to really take charge of my weight loss.
Well I am at my heaviest weight ever hear that EVER!!!!!!
I have never seen a heavy person when I look in the mirror I finally do maybe that is a good thing I can't fool myself anymore.
I saw a dietitician yesterday who asked what do you want me to do for you? I said just let me weigh in weekly and keep me accountable and challenged to take the weight off. She didn't give me an eating plan she gave me Canada's Food Guide not sure if the American one is the same. I will go back to my way of eating when I was losing weight and doing sparkpeople daily. I am up in allowed calories so I had a hard time reaching the calorie range when it was lower so it is a good thing I will lose faster. No I won't starve myself I will make healthy choices and do my fat, protein and carbs at every meal and snack. It is going to take planning which I am going to take the time to do.
I will start tracking on the tracker on Monday. No I am not going to cheat until then I am out of town the next two days I will make good healthy choices. I am getting a CT scan on Friday and picking up my grandchildren. Saturday is a birthday party for the 4 year old I will make good healthy choices. Sunday not sure if I will be home or out of town. So that is why I will start tracking on Monday I will get back to my spark routine. I am going to sit down and make a time schedule and stick to it at least during the week.
I haven't realized just how much the stress of the last year has really made me gain weight.
I have been going to yoga on Monday and osteofit on Tues. for the month of June then they stop for the summer. In the fall I will join both again and keep going all year. Tues. I am doing a Walk and Drop we walk for about 25 minutes and then 5 min. cool down. I will get to aquafit at least 3-5 times a week again. I am going to make weight loss my #1 priority now which it should have been for a very long time.
I am going to cut back on the fruit I bring into the house and buy more veggies. I love veggies so not a big deal. I love fruit I just ate a quart of strawberries fresh Ontario strawberries. YUM YUM YUM a good choice per se but I have to cut back on fruit. I had 2 bananas this morning. I have to start eating breakfast again and get into my healthy eating routine.
My 17 grandson has started a healthy eating plan for himself he got it from another boy on his football team. It is a lot of protein not as many carbs but I am not going to say anything it is pretty healthy stuff. I won't have anything in the house to sabotage him or myself. My younger grandchildren their mother doesn't like them having much in the way of sweets or junk so it is up to me to stick to my guns. I know I can do this how many times have I lost the weight already too many but this time I am going to make it work.
So I am going to be on here regularly and checking in with my sparkfriends and together we will succeed in our weight loss journey.
I know I have said this many times but I think I am definitely going to do it this time.
Have a great night. Teri emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I fully understand the resolve, try a new tactic, and get busy doing other things --or me getting too tired or being in pain-- to continue. People who go on SP lots lose more weight! People who track their foods do too. I will be cheering you on. I am thinking, you are so busy that you neglect yourself. Don't we all! Good luck, Chris emoticon

    Hi Teri,
    Remember that as long as you get back on your program, you won't fail. It's getting off and staying off that gets you in trouble. We're all here to support you!

    Teri, you're obviously well-educated and highly motivated to succeed. I believe that you will succeed. Really, once the gremlins (trigger foods, and reminders of negative experiences) are out of our immediate vicinities (homes/offices) there's very little that really derails us.

    And, you obviously have a lot of family members who - directly or indirectly - are also trying to live a healthy lifestyle; which drastically improves each of your respective odds of success.

    Best wishes to you in your journey to good health and personal happiness!

    welcome back!!!
    you only fail if you stop trying. That goes for EVERYTHING in life. If you don't find success after 349 tries, maybe the 350th try will do it. In other words, if you fall, you get up again, no matter how many times it takes.
    you can do this ....
    believe you can........and you will.....
    blessings and hugs..........lita

    Sometimes we all need a reset. If you have a chance, read my today blog, it is all about re-set. We all have to decide on how we can make ourselves accountable.
