I'm very disappointed to report that I have gained back every single pound I lost since joining SparkPeople. I guess the good news is, I haven't gained more than when I joined but geez, I feel like such a loser and am so depressed all! Ultimately, I am to blame...was on top of my game until about September of last year when I injured myself jogging (stress fracture). That's when I went from working out pretty much every day to hardly at all. Then, in November, I started the process of moving into a new apartment...it was stressful and challenging to eat well. Lack of time & energy led to poor choices. But rather than dwell on the past, I am dusting myself off and trying again. Starting today. I have the following specific goals...
1. Track every single piece of food that goes in my mouth, no exceptions. Stop eating when I hit the max for the day no matter what!
2. Get up at 5AM Monday-Friday to get my workout in before work.
3. Aim to lose at least 3 pounds per week. If I succeed at this, I'll be 165 pounds by 4th of July.
I think that's good enough for now, I don't want to set my expectations too high because I'll fail. Anyway, SparkPeople will certainly help me to reach these goals. It's not that I can do it, it's that I will do it. I will be where I want to be by 4th of July. I will.
