Drastic Times Call For Drastic Measures

Saturday, December 08, 2012

The Christmas season holds many pleasant memories for me. One is not so pleasant and I am going to change that this year. I, along with many other people put on the annual 5-10 pounds during the holiday season that starts with Thanksgiving and runs through Valentine's Day. Last year I only put on less than 5 pounds. This year I am aiming for a 0 pound gain. Can I possibly say that I want it to be a time when I actually lose weight???? Now that would be a first. I realize that I need to have a firm plan in place, starting with tracking every bit I eat.

I downloaded the SparkPeople app to my phone, hoping to be able to track better. It looks like I need to re-enter all my food. Is there a way to get it to port from from computer to my phone.

More about my plan, but will finish later, need to get ready for work. BUT at least I started my plan by committing this to writing.

Gained weight. No one to blame but myself

    What an awesome plan. No weight gain this Christmas season. You can do it and I am going to try and join you on this. Heck, even losing, wouldn't that be a great present?

    I'm not sure what kind of phone you have but I have an iphone and everything I put on my phone also shows on my laptop. SoooI would think yours would do the same thing as well. You can also copy a meal and paste it to another day. Be sure to same all your foods as your favorites then you won't have to type them in every day you can just go to your favorites type a couple of letters and it will pop up. You can do the same thing with you exercises. If you have any questions I'll be more than happy to answer them. I've been using the Sparkpeople app for about 2 years.
