A Brand New Start

Sunday, February 24, 2013

To all my Spark Friends - I'm sorry I've been gone for a while.

It all started when my computer started acting up before Christmas. I managed to continue working out and losing weight through the holidays. I was actually down to 200 pounds. After I got a new computer the flu hit hard in my family and at work. My #1 PROBLEM: I eat when I don't feel good. It started with ice cream for my sore throat and progressed to paczis and diet cola. I had the hardest time quitting once I started. I would track my food and fitness for a day or two, cheat, then quit just to start over again.

The other day I stepped on the scale and to my horror it said 215 pounds. THAT'S IT! I have just thrown away all the time and effort I have given for the last few months just to have a pig fest for one lousy month. IT ENDS NOW.

Starting today I am starting over from the beginning. New spark page, new easier to reach goals and a new attitude. I WILL track every bite I eat. I WILL exercise 6 days a week even if it is only 10 minutes. I WILL DO THIS - NO EXCUSES.

    I think we all have been suffering a bit with all the wacky weather. and now the time change...it will all taper off and we are going to hit it hard.

    I'm glad you are back, you are one of my most favorite sparkies.

    Hang in there, but keep in there. emoticon
