Back on the Wagon

Sunday, May 17, 2009

Once you go back to your "normal" eating habits, it is difficult to get back on the wagon, so to speak. And, after a cruise to the Caribbean, and a trip to the Pacific Northwest (where everyone expects me to cook) I have been avoiding the Spark People like the plague.

Because one of my friends on Spark People contacted me, and because I saw how well she has been doing, since I have been "gone", that prompted me to "bite the bullet" and get with the program.

Like most people with weight issues, I have a difficult time rationalizing myself out of eating too many good things that I cook. Today, is my second day and I am always amazed at how fast the calories add up for me.

Wish me well.....and I am back on the wagon.

    Welcome back! Any day we follow our plan is a good day, and it gets better with repetition. I love to cook and I love to eat. Make good choices is the mantra I repeat to myself over an over and over....

    Welcome back to the wagon! You can always try to find a healthier version of what you're making on sparkrecipes. I hope things get easier for you though! (Trust me, I am facing a diabetes diagnosis, which is the only reason I'm so motivated this time.)

    Cruising is hard when it comes to food. Lots of temptations!! Good decissions will get you through this my friend. We are always here to kick butt when you need it. Have fun and don't stress out about it.
