I have been back on SP for about a week now. I actually have been slowly working into the healthier living for about 3 weeks though. I gave up pop last week as I mentioned in a previous post. I couldn't be happier about it. It made me miserable for a couple of days, but now the headaches are gone and I feel better than I have since, well, the last time I had given it up.
The big surprise came when I got my new withings scale delivered yesterday. For those who don't know, withings is a wifi scale that automatically uploads your weight to their website and if you set it up to also to SparkPeople's weight tracker.
I had been without a scale for several months but had hopped on a friends scale in the middle of December and topped out at 372. That was the starting weight I added to Spark People when I got going again. So yesterday, I get the new scale hooked up and hopped on. I was expecting to have lost a few pounds since I have been doing things right now, but what I saw completely took me by surprise. I couldn't believe my eyes so I went on over to my friends and jumped on their scale to verify and it confirmed the reading I saw. I came in at 351 (that's a 21 pound loss since the middle of Dec). I truly couldn't believe it! I am pleased to say the least.
I still have so far to go and so much to do to get things under control, but that sure gave me a boost and what I would consider a moral victory today.
