It's been so long!

Tuesday, December 29, 2015

It's surprising that considering how significant SP was in my weight loss, that I have not really used it in the last year and a half! I used to track my nutrition and fitness daily, knowing that it helps me stay more aware of what I'm consuming and doing.

If it's so helpful, why did I stop? Tracking can take time and it's often easy to forget certain meals.

Anywho, I am starting again. I have been trying to lose weight for years and have been fortunate to go from 205 lbs down to 158lbs now. My goal is 140, so I'm heading in the right direction! I was working in Japan for the last few months and lost a fair bit of weight there due to the high humidity and lack of appetite. Although I put some of that weight back one when it started to get colder, people did comment that I looked slimmer than when I left the UK.

I'm nearly determined to get fitter (didn't do much exercise in Japan) and lose the last 18 lbs, but feel that something like an accountability partner would really help. But who to ask? I'm looked in this website and yet no-one seems available. If you're interested in losing weight together, send me a message :)

    Welcome back! Would joining a challenge team help? I know it helped me get off a year long plateau. I'm in an 8 week challenge and we are on the last week, but the new round starts January 20th, if you're interested.

    You got this! The holidays are over and we are getting ready for a new year. I know I'm looking forward to the changes in my health and weight in 2016. Since you have decided to get fitter and lose the additional weight you've taken the first step. emoticon emoticon

    Yep, I'm back at it, too. I have stuck with tracking for a month, now, and am happy I have SparkPeople to help! This time around, I have really gotten into reading other members blogs--and it is something new and different for me to help with my motivation.

    Good to see you back here. If you're back in the UK, why not check out Slimming World. I love Sparkpeople but needed the SW group each week to give me an extra boost.
