Last night I decided to create this sparkpeople account. I am overwhelmed with the messages and support I already recieved! This is so encouraging! I logged my first meal this morning and am now cruising around the myspark app I installed. I am currently not working, waiting to take the state board of cosmetology exam. So I have plenty of time to get a really great start under my belt! I am very excited to utilize these tools, and the help and encouragement from you all! I went from working 50+ hours/wk to 0 so my activity level is very low right now. But I'm ready to sweat today! I do have some concerns in the back of my mind...I am such an all or nothing person, I have a hard time letting myself not be perfect at something, especially losing weight and getting healthy. I know there will be slip ups, I need some type of fallback so one slip doesn't throw me into the spiral of obsession and compulsion to overeat and abuse my body. I might have just figured that out though....as I am writing this, I started thinking, well this community can offer me accountability for my food actions! This is different, this is bigger than me, this is hopefully the tool that can help me achieve health. I want this. I feel like I'm not alone in this right now.
