The truth

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Well I might as well fess up. I have been floundering lately. I got busy again and delayed documenting my food intake and loosened up in what I was eating a little bit. The result is a minor weight gain of 2 pounds. I made a commitment to myself that I was not going back to the depths of obesity again in the beginning of my Spark journey. I picked two highly effective habits that I would not drop. They were to document my eating and to drink my water....well guess the last few weeks I have put off documenting my eating almost every day. I am so aware that this could be the beginning of the end that I am going to force myself to write what I eat until it becomes second nature again. I am going to push push push in order to get myself back on track. If you are a praying person please add me to your prayer list. Thank you for all your support.

    emoticon Marie, I know you can dust yourself off and get back on track. Writing it down on a pad of paper helps when you just don't have the time to track or get on the computer. I understand since I've had a few days when I started my tracking but couldn't complete it that evening due to family obligations. I make sure after I eat breakfast the following morning to log on and add what I didn't get in the previous day and then that day's breakfast. Its my 2 step forward approach. If you need me to check in with you daily as an accountability buddy just say the word.

    You made a step forward by writing the blog and being aware of the situation. Now do your pro-active steps.

    And I am the poster child for backsliding! I put 11.5 pounds back on before I stopped. So glad you stopped the trend at 2 pounds back on!

    We can do this!

    Happy to keep you in prayer! I try to track as I go, so it doesn't take long, & I don't forget. It helps me to see how many g fat,carb,protein,fiber, sodium,potassium I am taking in, so I can adjust as I go. Some days go better than others, but it helps.

    Don't give up! Just keep plugging away & you will develop healthy habits!
