5 years on Spark

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Crazy to think I have been on spark for 5 yrs here soon. Learned how to log all my food and really depend on socializing and utilizing this website. Logging all my food has been the biggest help possible. Someday's are bad, some are good, doesn't matter, log it! If there is a gain, you can look back and be like "oh ya theres why..... can't blaim anyone but me...". I think my biggest motivator to lose weight was to get control of my life and get healthy for when I get pregnant. Always had a horrible fear I would gain my weight back in pregnancy. But I feel like I have enough knowledge now I wont. Because I am gonna log all my food and not overeat and not give into every temptation. I am gonna exercise all through and take care of myself. No excuses. I am not going back, never going back to 282 lbs.

Also my goal of not gaining this holiday season, kicking it's butt!!!! Cookie season is coming, I am gonna kick cookie seasons butt too. Cookie season is gonna have a bloody nose.

Oh yeah and I flew past my 500 miles ran for the year yesterday! I am sitting at 503.79 miles. I could be in Kansas.

    I actually weighed less after I delivered my son than I did before pregnancy. You don't have to gain a ton of weight if you are mindful and I'm sure you will be. Your baby will have an excellent diet before it is even born.
