Funny thing... could sparkpeople have entered my inner psyche??


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Saturday, February 09, 2013

its really odd.. i have probably been struggling with some overeating behavior for about 6 months.. annoying, bothersome, feeling uncomfortable.. if i workout like a fiend i can balance it out. but i dont want to train that hard.. my body hurts!

soooo, i have tried things on my own... a biggest loser contest, eating crap instead of real food (so i get my sugar fix)-- thinking about going on some supplement drink plan.. and then my son said -- whats the site you used to use? we brought it up and i looked at it for the first time in a long time..

and all of a sudden for almost 2 days i have felt weirdly accountable.. all the things that this site helped me with have come rushing back... i have been tracking my food all along but now logging it in is somehow different, seeing my weight tracker is affirming, writing this blog helps-- all the things that were so helpful in losing 50 pounds with SP.. have kinda clicked with me again in the last 1-2 days.. not sure why i am surprised but i am... emoticon

i have always believed in this site.. just coming back to basics and feeling so comfortable really means its never left my psyche - ever!!

  I'm new to SP as of January and can't believe how it's turned my bad eating habits around. I am a confessed junk food eater and all of a sudden, one day after finding SP, I've gotten my act together and am now eating in a more healthy way. There is just something humiliating about posting a day full of junk. The daily planner has helped me see that I can eat so much more when I make the right choices. I can so relate to everything you said in your post. I want you to know that people like you who have managed to lose so much weight inspires me and keeps me motivated. Thank you for your post, and welcome back. emoticon

    Amen sister. Your blog couldn't have been any timelier for me, who plummeted the month of January only to get back my "spark" today. And I'm getting back on track, logging all my food, writing a blog...all the stuff that works. As you know. :-)

Welcome back!

    I feel really "together" when I'm connected with SP and a little at loose ends when I'm slacking. Sounds like you have the same experience! Welcome back.

    Glad you came back and blogged about it. That is really encouraging to me.

SP is helping me keep myself accountable for what I eat. I love it! I really believe this is the site that will help me lose the weight, get back into shape, and keep me that way. SP is the best way I have found to change my lifestyle to a healthy lifestyle. I am so thankful.

    Good for you!! May I suggest reading Debbie Ford's book "The Right Questions"? (Or something like that). I found it very helpful in exploring my own unhealthy/bad habits and making me think about my choices. Good luck on your journey.
