Back after all this time!

Saturday, January 05, 2013

I've been away from SparkPeople for a few years and it feels good to be back.

One of the first things I did upon my return was to read the blog posts from that time. I truly hadn't remembered accomplishing some of those things. It felt great to know what I'm capable of!

During this time away, I've stayed within 5 pounds of my goal weight, and I've kept on counting calories.

I haven't been as good lately about exercise. It's hard to get motivated when it's below zero outside!

Since getting back into SparkPeople, I've tried to address especially eating more fruits and vegetables and drinking more water. I'll continue to count calories and I plan to get in more activity. Reading other SparkPeople posts has been extremely motivating!

    Wow, some of us need to restart this wonderful program several times and there is nothing at all wrong with that, I learn something each time I re-join. Congratulations for coming back. This time I feel I can do it because it is for the right reasons, me, me, me! I even joined the spark coach and find it really good at daily reminding me I can do this. I have found spark streaks very helpful too and know Chris recommends doing that. It is kind of fun watching the numbers get bigger while the scale numbers get smaller. Good luck, you can do this.
