Starting again...

Sunday, May 26, 2013

This is hard to admit, but I have gained back nearly all the weight I lost since starting SP over 3 years ago. And so I start again!

Been doing ok these past few days. It has been tough going through the sciatic pain for the past month or so, but finally I'm able to do 30 to 40 min workouts again.

Now.. if I could only find away to get over the drudgery of tracking food. Any suggestions?

Does anyone use a spark buddy here? Does that help?

    Tracking my food was one of the key components of my weight loss. I tend to eat mindlessly and before I know it, I have consumed too much. Before I started SP I would eat 3-4 bananas, thinking about how healthy they are, but thats over 400 calories for a snack. Bananas are high sugar which trioggers insulin and that makes us even hungrier.
    If you want to make it easy just list all your favorites either using the computer, phone and/or both and all you have to do is click them as the day progresses. I eat a lot of the same foods, so it takes little time for breakfast and lunch. Dinner is a little different but I have all my standard foods already listed in my favorites and just click.

    It takes much less time than what we used to gain the weight to get to this point. I have become much more accountable for my eating. I still eat my bananas but not as many and I make sure they are on my tracker.

    I am sure you may already be aware of these issues but just in case you forgot.... emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I don't have any advice, but apparently you can track your favorites easier on the phone than computer?
    Good luck - I know emoticon
