Here we go again...

So I changed my Sparkpage to be more bright, the dark colour was too dreary. I'm slowly figuring out what I can do and slowly getting more motivated. Unfortunately this slowness has made me gain about 14 pounds in 2 months. How the hell did I have all those extra calories? That's 49, 000 calories extra! Given that my BMR is 2,600 that means in 60 days I ate at least 205,000 calories!... Well now I averaged per day and got 3,416 calories eaten (at least) per day. I can see that. WOW that sucks! Pizza here, ice cream there, junk, junk, junk. So now what?
1. Well I joined a BLC challenge. Not the one I usually do because the next one doesn't start until the fall and I need something now.
2. Tracking! I suck at tracking my food right now. My problem in the past was if I was tracking my food and I was under my minimum I would keep eating until I reached my range even if I wasn't hungry. Not this time. The maximum is the only one I'm going to watch.
3. Walking a lot! Last year my brother and I started running. This year we are focusing on walking because we can do it for longer. Right now I'm going Sparkpeople's 5k walking program and since we usually walk 5km each walk it's no problem but I'm using it for consistency. Maybe later we will try the rookie running program.
4. Getting a buddy! Right now I have a sparkbuddy but she lives in the US. This wasn't a problem before but I switched phone companies. Now it will cost over a dollar for one text. I'm hoping to find a buddy in Canada who I can text and be accountable to.
That's my action steps for now. I'm still down 36 lbs but that's three years worth. Not very good. Before I was dropping 25 per year and then this year I gained. Boo! I can handle losing slow, not gaining. At least I am able to stop myself before I reach 340 again. I just want to be in the 200's again!
So here we go again!
