Hmnnnn... I recently had a bit of an oinkout slip too!
Since this is only my 3rd week, I am concentrating on really changing my habits. Emphasis on REALLY!
This first month is all about figuring out my needs. So it was great that I dropped the initial 10 and now I want to make sure it stays off and is fat not muscle. That really concerns me, I don't want to get unrealistic expectations of dropping all this weight and then going back to life as usual. So I am trying to be OK with slow.
Also the 10 pound a month goal is nice motivation and reasonable, but I would be happy with less and more permanant. But I am still on for the challenge!
Kobe, I know how active you are so you will be sucessful, as long as you can keep an eye on your caloric needs. I am borderline diabetic and need to watch my carbs and protein or I am UBER hungry all day and especially evenings.
I am trying to observant about other things like seeing more tone on my legs and running the bases faster - little things that the scale doesn't reflect.
Well I myself have been REALLY having trouble with the whole eating thing (ahh you may recall oink oink...) And I may be on to something here but that just might have something to do with that ticker thing moving in the wrong direction (hmm YA THINK!!!)
SO - my personal daily challenge is to stay within my daily calorie range for these next 3 days! That is a start - I am going to shoot for this whole week - but let's get the first 3 days down then go from there.
My activity level should increase starting today as well (hopefully) so that little volley ball (on my ticker) WILL move!!!
thanks for listening - just like certain people shouldn't be allowed to have sharp objects....I shouldn't have a fork!
I'd be interested in participating. I just have to ask you all to bear with me for the crazy days I don't make it on. I'll have to brainstorm for ideas, though. I'll think on it and post later tonight.
I'm only this far, and only tomorrow leads my way -- #41, DMB
I will think about motivation ideas. Maybe we can use those goodies as prizes?
You all may know this already but I just watched the video about how Sparkpeople started and it is quite unique because it is free yet comprehensive. The guy who started it is a multi millionaire who helped create Ebay and he is giving back by sponsoring this site. Interesting - you can find the video by clicking Healthy Lifestyles and you get 10 Sparkpoints for watching it!
