WOW, it has been a very long time since I have logged into Spark. I had fallen victim to my own negative ideals and behaviors. I kept telling myself that if I just continued to do what I was doing that I would continue to lose the weight. How wrong was I. Not only did I not lose any more weight, but I gained some as well, more than I would have liked. What a slap in the face to reality when I stepped on the scale to see that I had gained back what I lost, plus about another 15 pounds. I have learned the hard way that I need this site to keep me honest with myself. I need to track everything and not lie to myself about what I have been doing or not doing.
So, here it is, 2013, time to really do something about my weight. Today starts the rest of my healthy life and I really, really need to make it work this time. I just had a thought, maybe this weight loss/healthy lifestyle change is like quitting smoking. I tried to do that at least 20 times before I was successful, and now it has been almost 3 years since I have had a cigarette.......I mean, I can't even stand the smell of it, makes me gag now....and to think, I used to like that smell......eeewwww.
Well Katie, here it goes, all or nothing. There is a thin healthy women inside you ready to burst out. This is the year I turn 40!! It is about time.....
