I Do Better When I Am Regularly Active On SP

Thursday, June 20, 2013

When you see me blogging and being really active on this site, I am much more successful than when I take breaks that are 3+ days long.

I haven't completely fallen off track (I've been using MFP), but I've definitely been slacking. I definitely realized that there is a positive connection between SparkPeople and my success. I haven't backslid or gained weight (since the last time I blogged anyway), so that's a good thing kind of. I mean, there was a brief period where I went back up to 312, then went down to 305, and now I'm back at 308. My main goals for June were to not binge and to get out of the 300s. There is still time to accomplish this! I have been binge free so far, though some of my food selections weren't that great. I wish I had an actual job and my own place... ugh.. so frustrating. (I am 19, babysit during college vacation break times, and live with my mother for those who aren't familiar.) I have been doing well with what I have though. I just have to remember to stay positive and be optimistic, no matter what situation I am in.

So right now I am listening to music and planning the rest of my week.

That's all. Just wanted to blog, because blogging helps me stay on track. It keeps me more accountable knowing that I have many people who support me and read these. :) I appreciate you all.

    Good for you for being binge free this month! Reflection and insight on what works for you is one of the keys to long term success. Nice job on this one. =)

    Yes, yes, yes Spark is a great support the more support I have the better I do! I even found a FB Challenge group of local gals and that has been fantastic for me.

    emoticon and let me tell you, I joined spark 3 years ago and if it was not for me being on this site.. and reading blogs and peoples experience and also getting support and motivation from everyone, I would not be where I am today, I truly believe that the support, and the accountability of posting, tracking and blogging keeps us in check.. I have even joined and formed a couple of Facebook support groups and challenges which I has people from all over who are not even on spark who are reaping the rewards of logging and tracking and accountability..

Keep up the good work, it is working for you.. that is for sure..
