I was getting lazy. I was starting to try to track calories in my head and only some on SP. I was starting to think I look OK the way I am. If everyone else can eat that why can't I? I will make up my cardio tomorrow.... I was only thinking some of these things some of the time and it was only over a couple of day period. I know what that kind of thinking leads to. Binging, guilt, splurging, sabbatoge, shrinking confidence... No no no! Won't have it!
I log in to SP and I see new Spark Mail from a friend asking how I'm doing and wishing me well. I see a new Spark Goodie from another friend encouraging me. I have emails from my buddy and we share successes and struggles and just daily life "stuff". She sends me hugs and prayers and all this support lifts me. I didn't fail. I succeeded this weekend because of my friends who care and encourage me. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I hope you know how important it is for me to sign in Monday morning and track a loss (hey, .5lbs down is better than up!) and to not have the guilt. I'm so hard on myself. I know better and I'm working on that - but because of you my friends, I stayed with my plan this past weekend and I feel strong and motivated and HAPPY.
Again, thank you!
