Today is my dad's birthday... he would have been 91 had he have lived. So I thought rather than waiting until January 1st, I would start again TODAY.
When I started with Sparkpeople in 2012, I did really well and lost 25 pounds in four months but slacked off until I have almost gained the 25 back. Eating whatever I want whenever is not a verified weight loss plan. And the last couple of days I have not tracked my food as I really didn't know outside of meals what I had eaten. I lost my fitbit two weeks ago and slowed down because after all it didn't really "count" without my fitbit. . My fitbit came yesterday and I am back over 10,000 steps again.
Do I feel as good as I did 25 pounds ago? Of course not, silly. I am tired and irritable from all the sugar and move more slowly almost like the old lady I am. I am even huffing and puffing while playing with with dog - I mean Max.
But I do know that I started again this morning by weighing. No shock that I am in the twosies again and my goodness I am only 4'11". So today is the day. And I actually know what I ate today so tracking will be a cinch. And syncing my steps will be easy.
Thanks you for all bearing with me. I can't do this without you.
Ecclesiastes 4:12 And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
God bless us as we walk this path together.
