Planning a New Year

Friday, December 28, 2012

I'm starting the New Year a bit disappointed .....this will be the first time since 2007 I am starting the year with a gain.....yep I am a few pounds over what I weighed last year at this time.....But I will not let that send me in to an eating frenzy or make me love my self any less.... Spark people has taught me to be honest and then do what I know I must do to get back to my gain weight.....

The number one thing I must do is eat less.....I am eating more calories than I am burning.....for me more exercise is not the answer.....I learned that we can not expect to over eat then burn it off...if I were 20 or even 30 that might be the answer but not at my age......

So yesterday I went back to my weight loss plan, removed all the hings that tend to make me over eat , I went back to my mini meals, eating 6-7 time during the day and went back to having positive talks with myself.....I know I can loose the extra pounds....I need to loose about 10 pounds to get in to my goal weight if i can loose 200+ pounds I can loose 10's not going to be easy, the weather here is not so nice and i will have to find extra ways to keep busy in doors.... I am working on puzzles and reading but need to find my active ways to stay busy....a good one yesterday was shoveling snow and bringing in wood .....
well any way I have committed to going back to the plan that worked for me in the past and will always work if i stick with it.....It will work if I work at it....everyday not just for a few days....

So I will be starting a few challenges and trying to help new people as helping others helps me too

So Happy New Year...Hoping we all have a happy and healthy 2013.......

    Sounds like you have everything under control and a lot of Sparkfriends at the ready to lend support. Add me to that list. 2012 was not a healthy year for me but I know that with all the love & support freely given here @ Sparkpeople all of us can meet our goals if we choose to do the work.

    Kitt, you will do fine... this time of year is just plain difficult. I am sure once you get back to your regular routine & plans that always work for you, you will drop those 10 pounds. I know you can do it. Do not be hard on yourself -- you are doing a great job! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I'm there with you, Kitt. At our age our metabolisms don't have the get up and go they once had. Good thing is we do manage to get back on track. emoticon

    Hang in there Kitt. I am up a couple of pounds also and nothing I'm doing is working. I am working out eating right and sleeping well. I do not know if it is hormonal changes, the weather or my body settling into a comfortable weight. All I know is like you I am NOT giving up and am working on tweeking my diet. emoticon

You'll get those pounds back off.

    Like you, I do better with mini meals throughout the day. I guess it is the way that my body works best. emoticon

    Kitt, I am with you on this one. Over the last 2 holidays, I have been so sad because of MOM's passing because I miss her so much. I didn't track and that makes a huge difference. I know what and what not to eat, but I just didn't do it. I have maintained for over 10 years and I know I can lose these few pounds. I am starting the "Fresh Start" challenge. I really need to be accountable and this will greatly help me get back on track. emoticon .

    Great plan Kitt! I think what kills me are the nibbles as I'm packing lunches for the boys. I'm eating pretty clean and exercising and drinking a lot of water. . . . time to start chewing gum while I pack lunches! emoticon I'd like to lose about 10 as well! You push me, I'll push you!

    Hi there! Don't be too hard on yourself, we've all gone through this situation ourselves, but I always remind myself and others that even though you all off the wagon, the most important part is that you get back on, and that's what you're doing. Some people just fall off the wagon and don't know how to get back or won't get back and make excuses, I used to be that person, but now, I have learned from that. Had I just got myself up again, I know I wouldn't be in this situation.

Keep at it, you are accountable to yourself, we are all here to support you on your journey. Best of luck!
