May 7th, Getting Back on Spark
Monday, May 07, 2012
I haven't been on spark in quite some time. As a result I have gained quite a bit of weight. I am at my heaviest now and really need to get on track. It is unhealthy for me to be at this weight. Currently 416 lbs. This is a huge number and so I have set my goal at 300 lbs, I don't even want to think about how much I have to lose in total! So when I get to 300, or close to it, I will reevaluate my goal.
I joined a gym again, though I've never really gone reliably before, and plan to work on going on a regular basis. I plan to come on spark almost every day. When I do come on regularly, even if I don't lose weight, I usually don't gain.
I need all the support I can get so plan to go on my sparkteams pages and at least read a couple threads every day. I will try to post at least once response each day on my teams forums as well.
I do generally track sporadically and will be trying to track on a more regular basis, both food and exercise.
The past year has been really hard on me, and it shows on the scale. I have had several deaths in the family and may be expecting another soon, hopefully it doesn't turn out that way. I've moved jobs and have been dealing with depression. The job move was good though, better pay means less stressing about bills lol, also my hours are now always the same. Yay no more shift work ^_^ that's good for sleeping lol.
I do also plan to explore my spirituality a little, I think an improvement in that area would help the depression.
Sorry if this is completely boring. This blog is more about putting on record my goals and plans so that I feel at least somewhat accountable. I am hoping this summer will work out really well for me ^_^ and for everyone else too :P
