My own way

Sunday, September 06, 2015

The main reason I logged on Spark People was for support from other memebers. The calorie counting, exercise tracking aspect is not for me. When I first managed to lose weight I never tracked my food, I just listened to my body and it worked. This is just something that doesn't work for me, mainly because I don't want to become more obsessed with the number of calories I eat, than with the quality of the food, that is nothing more than fuel. I tracked my food for about a month now and I can have an idea of how a 400 calorie meal looks like. I choose to eat healthy food because it makes me feel good and it gives me energy, I choose to exercise because it makes me happy and it helps me fight the negative thoughts that sometimes cross my mind. Spark People is amazing, but I really can't write down everything I eat, because this always got me to an obsessive state where my only thoughts were about food and this is not what I need to lose weight. I managed to eat healthy without tracking and I also managed to exercise without writing it down, I just want to change my life for good and to make HEALTHY a habit, not a punishment. I am here for support, for the days I feel down and there is no one who can understand me better than the SP comunity, so I can come here and share with you guys my ups and downs .Even one word from you can change my entire day and make it better, that's what I am looking for. I will still weigh myself, but not weekly, as I used to. I will try to focus more on the weist-thigh measurements. I am who I am and I have my own personal problems and I can't lose weight in a way that others lose weight. I will do it in my own way, a way that works best for me. I will keep this account to write here from time to time and to post pictures of my progress and share my journey with you and chat with whoever wants to chat with me and send you my positive thoughts and support. This is the only place I can talk about this fight I fight every day for 4 years now and I am so grateful to have even one message from someone who cares, even if we never met face to face. Wish you all a great autumn!!! You can do anything you wish for, but you have to do it in your own pace, in your own way! :)
