These last few months have been murder

Monday, February 10, 2014

I joined sparkpeople in Oct and was really into doing the tracking of the food and doing moderate exercising. As soon as the holidays cam around my mood went south leaving a totally different person in its place. I became the woman that ate all the chips, candy, crackers, cookies that were with in reaching distance. In addition to the depression, I suffer from chronic pain and have trouble walking. I am in a vicious cycle that I am in pain which puts me into depression, so I dont have the energy to do any exercises.
I attempted to do chair exercises but on some days I cant even get past 5 minutes then on some days I can do 15 minutes.
I was ready to throw in the towel I was eating everything in sight and not exercising (except to get up to get more food). When the doctors office weighed me last month I was really surprised to see that I had still lost 3 pounds. How was that possible? I think its may be from the severe muscle spasm twitches that I get in my legs. When that acts up I cant walk anywhere buy myself. I get alot of these leg spasms in bed and sometimes they last over an hr. Is that considered exercise?
Well now here it is the 2nd week of February and I have remembered why I chose to join Sparkpeople. I am back on track. I am tracking my food and fitness. I even pay more attention to what I am eating.
I have to thank Sparkpeople and sparkfriends for keeping me motivated while I was thinking of quitting. emoticon

Even though I was eating out of control in Nov through January I still managed to lose 19 pounds since Oct. I am motivated enough now I may actually meet my goal to try to lose 25 lbs this month.

Again Thankyou to my friends here at Spark!!! emoticon emoticon

  LOL, I agree twitching legs should count for something. It must be all the jumping up and down to get relief that burns calories. Welcome Back.
19 pounds is a lot to be proud of. Keep it up
