I just had a HUUUUUUGE wake up call.
I have had an account on SparkPeople for 2 years now. I say that because I was never really committed, and I didn't keep up with getting healthy.
I just went over my bank statements for the past few months, and I was horrified, HORRIFIED, at the amount of money that I have spent on fast food. I am also horrified, HORRIFIED, that I ate that much fast food. I am not going to try an justify by saying "well, some of it was Subway" because I know when I have eaten at Subway, its not exactly healthy. The grand total for the past 4 months is $2000.
Folks, THIS IS ROCK BOTTOM.
I have never been this disappointed in myself. Not only the waste of money, but all of the empty, awful calories that I have been shoving in my face. The fat, salt, and sugar that I have jammed down my gullet. It truly is embarrasing.
I have gained 15 pounds in 4 months. Those were pounds that I did work hard to lose in the first place. And now those bastards are back. But not for long.
There is no place to go but up for me now! To quote that old cliche:
Today is the first day of the rest of my life!
