Here I am AGAIN! After the last failure, I joined Jenny Craig (man is that expensive!) and lost 30 of the 60 pounds that I wanted to. Then comes the holidays (2011) and I gained it all back and then some.
I tried for the next year to do things myself, but I discovered through paying attention to my bad habits and research that I have an eating disorder. I am a binge eater. I do not purge, I just graze mindlessly because nothing satisfies. I sought help from a therapist who specializes in weight loss and eating disorders and she is helping me tremendously. I have figured out with her help the reasons for my bingeing and emotional eating, and together we are working on this.
I am well on my way to finally conquering this problem with the help of SparkCoach, SparkPeople, and the BodyMedia Fit arm band that I previously purchased through JC. I am so glad to see SparkPeople linking up with the BodyMedia website.
It is my overall goal to lose 65 lbs, but a short term goal of 30 lbs by April 1st. I am taking a trip to Chile' on April 3rd and would like to be a bit smaller by then. I have exercised every day this week doing things like Water Aerobics, Zumba, Yoga, and plain old walking on a treadmill and strength training with weight machines.
I am trying to develop a new habit of checking into SparkCoach every day, and at the same time I will try to write something in this blog. I am so confident that this 100th time is the charm. I am done beating myself up over past failures. Only positive thoughts from here on out!
