Positive Results!

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Finally, at long last, the scale is moving down again! I still haven't figured out what caused me to overeat purposefully for all of those months, but it was obviously an emotional reaction. Rather than focusing on the negative, though, I choose to focus on the positive. I've controlled my intake over the last two weeks and eaten within my calorie range on most of the days. With the new tracker that adds calories to my range based on my activity, I just need to aim for the lower end to see results. As I continue this trend, I should be back to my original loss of 50 pounds in about a month. Most importantly: I didn't quit!!! I kept tracking even when my totals were embarrassing, and I never quit believing that a lifestyle change was possible.

God bless my Sparkfriends for their continual support and inspitation. Spark on, Dudes!

    Continue to focus on the positive. I try to focus on the positive but I have to admit that the negative sometimes seeps in.

    emoticon Well I have been tracking and exercising and my weight is going up! I really think it is water at least I hope so..I know I can't gain 3 lbs in a night. My eating is not that bad.
So happy yours is going down and like you I am tracking even when I know it won't look so great.

You keep focusing on that positive, we can do this!

    Great job! I really can relate to your comment about purposely overeating as I'm going through that right now. I really don't understand why we choose to sabotage ourselves.
