"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude."
-Maya Angelou

First goal: Obese no more. 199lbs.

My name is Toni, I'm 32 and 210 lbs. (Up to 220 now Sep 2013)
I lost 50lbs with Sparkpeople 5 years ago. I felt fantastic, got a new wardrobe, bags of confidence, a crazy busy social life.
Then I started to chose the easier, more fun option. I stopped going for walks and cooking healthy meals.
I started saying yes to that party, that restaurant, that piece of cake....everytime.
It is 3 years down the line, and I'm reaping what I sowed.
40lbs is back.
I keep trying to slip back into that spark groove. It should be easy! I know how to do it!
But my attempts don't stick, I just keep yoyoing back to where I started.
I think it is time to face the fact, that the way out, is the path I followed in.
I need make the right choices, even though they are small, and seemingly inconsequential.
I need to make them everyday.

So I am starting over again. Promising myself that I will track and move.
That I will hold myself to account alongside you.
That I won't let my impatience for progress, get me down.
Until I have given the little choices long enough to start adding up.

5 weeks to Christmas!

    Thanks for the suggestion about going low-carb. I'm not sure if that's in the cards for me at this time entirely, but I will definitely do some research and at least try to cut back on my carb intake and hopefully that will help some. For now, I'm trying to increase my protein intake, especially at breakfast.

    I hope you are having a great week!!
