Hi Sparkfriends. Its come to the time now, seeing as Im stuck at my 50lb loss for 2 weeks now, that I am ready to step up my discipline I have slacked off, which is normal. I haven't slacked off by much, I am still on the right track, but compared to the efforts I put forth in the beginning of my journey, I have seemed to let myself start eating not so wonderful foods, NOT EVERYDAY, or all day... I just dont feel as healthy as when I was stuffing my face with like 3 salads a day and stuff.

Theres a huge difference, and if you havent tried it, I recommend lots of greens and veggies/ veggie soups for a straight week. Plus the water. Clean yourself out and feel the natural energy. It stops depression in most parts of me, and I was bad off before SP. I have to get back to that more. I still eat veggies and a ton of fruits, just want more veggies. I think financial reasons stop me also, but AI will incorporate them back in like I was.

I noticed on weigh-in days, (as if you didnt know already, you weigh in no more than 1x a week, because our bodies fluctuate, etc, and you get to the point where your so eager to see results, etc... and use the bathroom first) that sometimes I have to use the bathroom, then use it again in like 10 minutes, even if I didnt eat anything... my body is funny, but sometimes I have to wait just to get an accurate weigh in.

I still dont have a digital scale, but I am confident I will have one in a month, I just didnt have great results my first digital scale and I returned it. Its so hard for me to trust its accurate, but I guess now that I am down 50lbs from that time, I can hope to get better accuracy. Any recommendations on a decent priced digital scale let me know. I have a few leads, but I need brands and such.

Other than that, I want to go over my journals I wrote when I first started eating healthier. Its been so far of a journey... and looking back from the very beginning, It makes me in AWE, to see I have accomplished getting past believing I can never lose weight. I still am in denial kinda, just because I grew up believing I could never. It was a battle I couldnt compete against. Its hard to say, but thats 2 decades of hopeless depression I am breaking down.

I also have been slacking this past week or 2 with making sure every food has been tracked. If I eat a carrot, I probably wont track it, but maybe I should. As well as the small snacks I take in, why? well they add up. especially depending on what they are. So starting small, make sure I get plenty of water, tracking every food more, and keeping my eating healthy.

I cant complain about the exercise part. Me, my b/f and my kids go biking alot together,

and walking seeing as the weather is nice.

I used to walk on the weekends by myself, then my boyfriend came along when my mom watched the kids, but since she moved out, I felt weird to walk by myself, and I cant find my charger for my MP3, lol-excuses...

Either way If I slack on any exercise, I will be out there walking. I have alot more weight to take off, and become more healthy, so lets get to it.

Take care everyone.

    Thanks for sharing your experience. I am having a hard time with bad habits creeping up on me. Hopefully this blog will help me get back on track. It's hard when you're out so much more and away from the computer (summer and all). I'll have to make sure to write down my food when I don't have the computer. It beats tracking by memory.
