a new outlook

Sunday, February 24, 2013

So! Since Lent started, I gave up bread, pasta and sweets which has given me a bit of motivation to eat just a little healthier. I had become SO SO addicted to cookies that I gained 8lbs in the last 2 and a half months. The first few days were tough. But since it is now out of my system, I could care less that I have 3 boxes of girl scout cookies in the pantry.

I actually gave some to my kids yesterday for a snack and didn't even have an ounce of temptation to eat one! =o0 I know, WICKED! =D

I am going to give myself ONE goal for the week: log onto SP at least 4 times per week. I miss SP. I miss my spark friends. I especially miss SP Live meetings. -=( Since they were cancelled I pretty much stopped sparking. I appreciate everyone who kept checking in with me. I love all of the goodies you have left me in my absence. =) Means so much.

A lot has changed over the last year. Some things were hard to adjust to. Some were for the best. I have turned to my faith to strengthen me. So far, it has been very humbling. I know that it will help me both spiritually and physically so I can overcome the obstacles of weight loss that are to come.

    I've been doing the SparkCoach thing. It's not very interactive, but it does help me keep Sparking. Awesome about the Girl Scout cookies!!!!

    Hey girl : )!!! So happy to see you here again. MISSED YOU! I hope you are loving school. I know you had been wanting to go back for a while! Bet it feels good to be doing that for yourself?
    I love that you decided to leave out breads and sweets for lent. That will really help you get yourself detached from over doing carbs. I know how hard that is! You can get back to your old self. Just take it one step at a time and before you know it you will be doing all of the positive healthy things you use to do for yourself and more!

    I agree and I used to eat 10 - 12 cookies at a setting. Now i eat a few cookies and a package of cookies can last me almost a month. So, not so, many months ago. Keep up the great work and I can certainly relate.

    Hana! Hello! Good for you on your Lent commitments. I am strengthening my resolve this month as well.

    I would love to stay in touch and make great progress!

    Have you seen the ads for the Fitbit? I absolutely love mine. If you get one we will need to track together!

    Talk SOON! Suzy
