Day 1 - Bringing in the New Year
Well, I'm at my parents for the holidays, and we are all sick, unfortunately. My husband and I had planned to go bowling for New Years Eve, but I just wasn't feeling up to it. I tracked most of the day yesterday, but stopped tracking when we s... Read more
Starting over for 2015
I lost... then I gained... then I lost again. Another year has passed, no significant amount of weight lost. I restarted my page, wiped out old goals and created new ones. I thought about deleting my account all together, but didn't want to l... Read more
I am made some adjustments to my nutrition tracker. I feel like Sparkpeople was telling me to eat a lot more than I really should be and was slowing my progress. Of course, some of my progress has been slowed because I have lost focus and have... Read more
Need to change it up
I know that Sparkpeople does calculate all your height and weight and activity level in when they say how much you should eat every day. But, I think I want to see what would happen if I made my calorie range a little stricter. Right now they ... Read more
Why is it so hard to stay on track?
I feel like I go on and off Sparkpeople so often, sometimes I'm not really sure why I keep trying. It's so aggravating. I think some of it is I get too comfortable with myself and I don't feel like changing, but I know I need to. I like mysel... Read more
Staying on Track
I've been struggling to stay on track with tracking foods, which is the most important thing for me to help with weight loss in my experience so far. When I track consistently, I see consistent progress, when I don't track I either plateau or b... Read more
Memorial Day Follow Up
So, after reading the comments of a few people on my last blog entry, I decided I would go to that BBQ that my husband really wanted to go to. It was fun. There was not as much tempting food there as I had thought. I've been there before for ... Read more
I need to get it together.
So, I'm at the halfway point of my initial long term goal. I want to be down 90lbs total by my son's second birthday. His first birthday is in a week and I am down about 40lbs. I suppose in perspective, that's great, because I actually starte... Read more
Emotional Shopping vs Emotional Eating
I've been crazy anxious lately, and I'm actually not even sure why. I guess maybe it has to do with my son's first birthday coming up, which includes us taking an 8+ hour trip to see family. And, of course, money anxieties are always floating ... Read more
So, about a week ago, I quit Facebook. There wasn't any real "reason" for it. I just am bored of it and realized that I don't really enjoy it. It was taking too much time away from the important stuff, like watching my son grow up.
Look ... Read more
I am just so happy :)
Has been awhile since I've blogged on SP. I have been tracking (most days) and trying to find ways to keep myself moving. Scheduled and routine exercise isn't really on my plate lately, but I have been keeping busy.
Now that the weather... Read more
Trying to spark
I haven't done much on SP lately. But, I have still be eating pretty good and have been losing weight, so that is good.
David is doing good. We have been really struggling lately to get him to take naps. He sleeps pretty good at night,... Read more
I know that BMI is not the most accurate way to decide on weight goals or what a healthy weight is, etc. But I cannot help but be excited to see this:
I'm actually ... Read more
I sometimes have people ask what my weight loss goals are. I know what they are asking, at what point will I say "I am successful at weightloss". Well, I only focus on 5lbs at a time. The big number is just too big, and honestly, I couldn't s... Read more
I've been gone, because I have been sick on and off for about 3 weeks. I finally had enough of that today. I don't know what the deal is, but I cannot put my goals on hold for sickness, it's a slippery slope. So, I am back to tracking and wal... Read more
