30 Days On

Saturday, May 23, 2009

So! I have apparently been a member of Sparkpeople for 30 days now! I only realised because I checked my points and it said, "25 points awarded today for 30 days on the site!"


So, 30 days on, and how am I finding it? How am I doing?

I. Am. Doing. Great.

I'm actually much more aware now of what I'm eating, even moreso than when I was in Weight Watchers. Two weeks ago, Mum was going to cook us a lovely cheesy ham pastry thing, and I looked at it, thought, "PASTRY." and heard the alarm bells going off in my head.

(I was damned right to not eat it. Thing had something like 40g of fat in it, about 50% of which was saturated fat. And it was the size of my palm, if even that.)

I still slip up. I'm holding my hand right up to that one, because I'm human, fallible, and therefore will always make mistakes. Whether I do it consciously or not is a whooooole nother matter.

Let me just reiterate that I love sugar. That's never going to change. I still eat Doritos. I eat popcorn when I go to the cinema.

Eventually, however, that might change. Or I might start doing some exercise to counteract the gluttony I sometimes experience.

But compared to this time two months ago?

I'm doing a hell of a lot better, thank you very much.
