I Need Accountability

Saturday, February 23, 2013

That's what I have been missing from SparkPeople. We are halfway through our Body Challenge at our CrossFit gym and I am disappointed with how I have done- foodwise, which has put on some weight. It's important to me to see some vast improvement from when I first started the challenge in mid January. Right now, weight-wise, I am right at where I first started the challenge. 133 lbs. (well, 132.8 as of this morning). I have had a good week... not great, but a def. improvement from the previous weeks. I was up to 136.8 several days ago when I was binging.

In two weeks we take our spring vacation and I am stressing already about gaining weight. I am hoping I can use my blog here in SparkPeople to be accountable and eat well. Vacation is not an excuse to binge. And knowing myself like I do, one little treat will not satisfy me and will only make me want more... I do not want junk, nor do I need it.

Tomorrow I am going to blog about my goals for the week. That always helps me!

Thanks for reading! I have great SparkFriends!

PS For those that read my last blog, I have found that DH's laptop with my wrist splints is pretty easy on my hands. I love that I can get back on here and blog again and remain in touch.

    I think you're way too hard on yourself . . . that's actually a pretty healthy weight for people our size & your weight will always fluctuate. We're all too hard on ourselves.

Vacations are hard, no doubt about it. Think about what you REALLY want & set reasonable goals that will help you get there.

That could be gaining a small amount, maintaining, or losing. They're all perfectly acceptable options.

    Oh I hear you - Worrying about vacation weight gain can almost make you want to stay home. I hope, when you work up your goals you can come up with a plan for coming back from vacation lighter than when you went on it.

Oh!! I just remembered - I did that last year on my vacation. I watched everyone else eating all the time - and concentrated on how MUCH I didn't want to always have my hand in a box of cookies and I actually came home lighter than when I left. Maybe that will help.

I know you can do this. emoticon
