Day two of the rest of my life

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

Well I started sparkpeople in 2011 and haven't taken advantage of this great resource at all. I realize that If I had used the resources provided by Sparkpeople I would have been a lot closer to my goal of appreciating myself. I always said when I get to this weight I will be happy or when I do this I will be happy. Setting goals feels like setting myself up to fail. So how do I over come the fear of accomplishing my goals? My goal is to track my food everyday and be honest about what I am eating. another goal is to weigh myself daily to keep track of my water gain and loss each day. I have to become aware of my body and stop denying how my body feels.

goals for this week:
track food
weigh self daily

I crave, want, need sweets every day. Every time I plan to lose weight I immediately sabotage myself. I don't understand why but I do. I wonder what I fear of being healthy and feeling good. emoticon

    My advice:

    Track everything: The good, the bad, and the ugly. The first few weeks may come as a shock but then after doing it for a few weeks you can tweak your food choices from there. Start off with a few goals and don't overwhelm yourself.

    Weighing yourself: I typically do it every Friday. Your body is going to fluctuate every day given what you eat, water weight, and everything else involved. If you weigh yourself once a week you'll have a better idea of how your doing whether your losing or gaining. :) I track my weight every Friday and enter it into my Spark. Its nice to do simple math at the end of the month and see what I've lost for the month overall.

    Good luck!
