Optimism and Obsession
Saturday, October 27, 2012
Well I have been trying a different website to lose weight, and so far no luck. That doesn't mean that I am giving up, or that I had ever completely written Sparkpeople off. I had continued to log in every few days; but not enter my food, or do much of anything else. I really believe that I am better off doing Sparkpeople, as the other site is a little bit to hard on a person. It has led me to be a bit obsessed about every bite of everything that I eat. Which, while in and of itself is not a bad thing, it grades you on everything you eat. I tended to do well on the grades; but I was giving up what I know is nutrious food to get those grades. I was not being optimistic, I was being obsessed with grades and getting in under 1200 calories a day. The worst part was that I actually gained 1.5 pounds in 4 weeks, booo!!!! So instead of being obsessed, I chose to be optimistic about my weight loss and what I know is nutrious, and continue on with Sparkpeople to what I know will be a successful end.
