Back In The Driver's Seat!

Tuesday, January 07, 2014

As my close Sparker friends know I had a great Christmas, but really indulged in too much of those goodies that keep that weight right on this ole body, plus add a few more. I was upset with myself for awhile, but decided being upset and kicking butt was doing nothing to resolve the 4.5 lb gain. I had to put a plan in action, get back to those good habits learned on back to exercise..30 min a day to start, drinking that water, planning those menus, logging all my food, and interacting with my Spark friends..boy you gals sure give me so much encouragement and hope, I couldn't keep going without all the helpful tips, and pats on the back! emoticon
Well I did start pushing harder and low and behold a 1.5 lb loss since the 1st of January emoticon I am happier, feeling confident, and stomach is thanking me also, I feel so much better when I eat in smaller portions, and stick to healthy foods. I am on a roll and looking forward to BLC24, bring it on I am ready for the challenges!

    I think a lot of people overeat during the holidays (including me; I also gained 5 pounds). But the difference is that WE get back to business when the holidays are over, and it's business as usual for everyone else. We'll soon be back into new weight loss territory! Good things are ahead!!

    emoticon Glad to see you back on track! I totally agree with you. Aside from the weight loss, eating smaller portions and healthier foods just makes me feel better. Not so bloated and sluggish. Keep it up! emoticon
