Now let me explain why this is such a big deal. Usually if I'm not well or stressed I am an emotional, comfort eater. So I would eat my way through nuts, biscuits, cheese, chocolate; make grilled cheese or macaroni cheese or anything fattening and comforting - whatever is available. And of course....agree with myself that I should spoil or treat myself until I feel better! Dumb thinki... Thu, 26 Jan 2012 02:09:01 EST Been sick! But on the mend. + http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4700531 Well it's quite a while since I posted OR weighed in for that matter. I have been quite unwell and miserable. Dr's not sure what's going on. But I'm happy to say that although I haven't had any energy to exercise, I have stuck to my eating plan - around 1200-1300 cal's each day. this is a HUGE improvement for me!! Usually if I'm sick I eat all the comfort food around, & treat myself etc etc. <BR> So although I know I didn't lose I haven't gained either. <em>243</em> I'm gradually getting b... Tue, 24 Jan 2012 08:15:15 EST First weigh-in.......woohoo http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4675537 Well today was my first weigh-in with SP and I'm so pleased that I have lost 1.5 kilos or 3.3 lbs. that's an immense effort for me. That brings me very close to hitting the 70's next week and that would be FANTASTIC. I'm so looking forward to seeing that number on the scales - you have no idea. I'm a happy camper. <BR> I'm finding that this time around SP I'm not being so dogmatic about things. I don't aim for a number but a range, between 1200 and 1500 calories. I aim for 1200 but I don't s... Thu, 12 Jan 2012 08:17:29 EST First serious day of success http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4665604 Today was a great day. I hit 1222 calories - close to my low goal of 1200 (1200 - 1500 is my goal each day). this is the best I've done & I feel quite satisfied - even managed a square of Lindt dark chocy to finish off the day. <BR> I also walked for 70 mins on quite a hot day, and lots of nasty hills to boot - not fun, but good for my weightloss. <BR> I really like having a range for eating that I can go between - takes away the angst when you go over your limit, & stops you beating yourse...
