I am having issues with my pelvis. After I sit for a long time, an hour or so, my hip bones seem to lock in place and I am unable to walk for a couple of minutes, and then my first steps are painful. Regardless of cause, I need to lose weight quickly and stay mobile to be my best.
This morning while thinking about it, and how I would do it, I read the blogs of a couple of inspiring friends. One is on Day 77 of a streak and her weight is continuing to trend downward. I know how hard she works on it, and how pleased she is with the results. The other friend lost 94 pounds and doesn't even recognize herself in pictures. She made big changes in what she eats and she tries new types of physical activities.
I worked hard before and was losing weight till my routine was interrupted for medical treatments. I know how hard I had to work but I was so happy with the results. How can I get there again?
What am I afraid of? failing? hard work? low impulse control? lacking consistency?
What is the Spark thing we hate the most? Tracking calories! That's it. I don't have to stay in my calorie range or pre-plan my meals, I have to consistently record what I eat. My streaks starts today. My weight is 219.9 pounds.
Thank you Spark Friends!
