Rollercoaster ride it is, I guess...

Well, I'm both glad and shameful that I'm back again to SparkPeople. Every time I get back on the bandwagon, i feel like it will be the time that changes my life. So far, no luck.
Who knows when will be the defining moment, but this time, I have a friend from real life who has also joined SparkPeople and we are going to compare food journals. I work well with challenges, so I'm hoping this will give me some motivation.
My husband also bought a FitBit to be able to keep track of steps along with me. My hope is that all the support in real life as well as Spark support will give me the edge to finally win this battle with my weight.
I started tracking food again yesterday and made it within my calorie goal for the day, so I was pretty excited (I don't count the exercise from my FitBit as that's extra in my mind). Of course, then I woke up this morning and went to make lunch for my husband (I promise it's not old fashioned as he doesn't mind making it himself, just one of the things I like to do for him). I put his chips in the bag and grabbed out two small ones for me to eat without even thinking about it. When I realized it, I almost facepalmed. Oh well, there's 23 calories gone.
It's going to be difficult and I'll need to be hyper-vigilant, but I think I can do it. I know that I'm addicted to food and so it's going to be difficult. Crossing my fingers that I get that exercise high and it keeps me going long enough to lose some significant weight. Here's hoping!
