Feeling Good

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

So I am a week into my new start to this lifestyle change. I know that if I go into this with the attitude that this is another diet, then I am sure I will fail. The weight will come off for sure, but when I tire of the "diet" it will all go on again and then some more. I cannot afford to do that anymore. I am getting older and it's getting harder for the weight to come off. For my own health I must do this and make it a change that I can live with for the rest of my life.

I need to learn to eat in moderation as a norm and know that I can work fun foods into the day only with a plan to still make the day work or know that extra exercise will be expected to work it off. I know that if I tell myself that I can never have a cookie, piece of cake or pizza or some such food ever again I will surely fail. Everything in moderation - have 1 slice of pizza or a small piece of cake - not half the pie or half the cake.

So as I said before, I am a week into this and I am feeling good. I am tracking my food daily, increasing my water and exercising. It feels good. I stepped onto the scale for the first time in a week yesterday and I am down today a total of 3.5 pounds. I am very excited and motivated. I know that with Spark this will work. I have done it before and I can do it again!
