Your support made my day!!

Sunday, October 18, 2009

For the past couple of weeks I have been doing very well, exercising everyday and staying within my allotted calories. That all changed this weekend. Friday night my husband and I went out with friends, ate lots and had a few drinks. On Saturday we went to a wedding, it was a beautiful wedding with great food!! I didn't exercise on Friday or Saturday. When I got up this morning I felt myself slipping back into my old way of thinking, "I messed up for a few days so screw it I'll just keep eating whatever I want and start again next week." So I started the day with a piece of chocolate.

Then something strange happened...I stopped that downward spiral and logged on to SP, I logged in my food from yesterday and what I thought was a terrible day actually wasn't that bad. So I went on to look for a recipe for dinner. I read a few messages I received. It's so good to feel such support from other people who are going through the same struggle. Then, feeling motivated once again, I went for groceries and a walk.

The old me would have definitely spiraled down straight into a big bag of chips! However, I ended up having a great day, I am back on track. It feels great. I feel like it is really different this time, I think SP is helping to keep me on track in many ways.

Thanks for all your support, it really truly helps on days like today!!

    That was a GREAT blog to read!! I think SP's greatest feature is just it's existance, and the ability to come here and get back on track.

    Hey way to go!!! That is so awesome! I had the same problem this weekend. Family party with hot dogs and hamburgers, cake, ice cream....
    I felt the same way, and then to put my food in today. And like you, didn't do nearly as bad as I thought I did. lol
    I was also not wanting to work out today. So instead i logged on to SP and put a post out that I needed help to get motivated.
    Guess what?! A friend posted and asked what she could do to help! How great is that?!
    SO glad that we can all be here for each other!
    Good luck this next week!
    You've got it in the bag!

    You did so amazing and should be so proud of yourself. I probably would have ended up in the spiral. But I never thought to log onto Sparks when I get those feelings. Thanks for the blog and great reminder.
