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.
