July Update on Reality check

Friday, July 01, 2016

Fact: to lose weight, I have to eat less. Measure more. Stop the excuses.
Update: I am eating less. Must measure
Fact: to lose weight, I have to move more.
Update: I am walking 6 days a week. When I walk on the treadmill, I have increased the speed.
Fact: to lose weight, I have to eat more veggies.
Update: Doing better, still need to improve.
Fact: to lose weight, I have to stop eating at night because I lose all control once I start.
Update: am doing much better on this. Still have occasional binge nights, but also have nights where I don't snack at all.
Possible: I may need to leave some teams and join others - then become active to get the support I need.
Update: haven't left any teams because my supportive friends are there.
Possible: I may need to keep the friends who support me on a regular basis and let the others go.
Update: I will be going through my friends list on a monthly basis because I see that it is the same people who reply on friend feed.
Fact: to get support, I need to give support. A smaller friend circle will help me do this. I need to think on this one.
Update: think I will set aside some time each day to post on friends' pages.
Fact: I have started new spark streaks to help me do this.
Update: these streaks are showing me what I need to work on.
I will lose 3 pounds for real this month.
Time to get REAL.
Update: notice some improvement so will take that as a win for the month. On to July to continue working.

    Congratulations on the 3# loss for last month. I'm glad your reality check is working for you! I've been struggling this year and have found commitment, consistency and accountability to be critical to maintaining my health. Have really worked on that since March and it has worked well. These blogs of yours are on that track. Good for you! Thank you for the goodie today; it brought me here to see how you are doing.
