Trying to stay positive
Monday, November 29, 2010
It's been a long time since I've logged in to Spark People. I had a very stressful year last year and began stress eating. I knew I was gaining weight, but still felt like it was "under control". I also had an amazing vacation at Disney World and ate *way* too much! Then of course there was Thanksgiving last week. Needless to say I was aware that the pounds were slowly coming on. Yesterday I decided it was time to face music. I got on the scale and wanted to cry. When I was on Spark People before I had lost 25# and only 10# left until I reached goal. I got on the scale and had gained all the weight I lost back. I am so ashamed of myself for allowing it to get out of control. It's no wonder that walking is getting harder or my joints are hurting. With my cerebral palsy it is very important for me not to have extra weight. On the up side, I'm back on. I've logged my food for two, worked out at lunch today and said no to sugary treats. Here's to a new start!
