September Accountability

Wednesday, September 07, 2016

Fact: to lose weight, I have to eat less. Measure more. Stop the excuses.
Update: fell off the wagon on this one, must climb back on
Fact: to lose weight, I have to move more.
Update: I am using a Fitbit now and it is encouraging me to walk more. I am up to at least 10, 000 steps per day. Most hours between 7 and 4, I walk around my kitchen island for 10 mins.
Fact: to lose weight, I have to eat more veggies.
Update: this is hard for me.
Fact: to lose weight, I have to stop eating at night because I lose all control once I start.
Update: again fell off the wagon, climbing back on.
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 and do it daily.
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.
Update: and regained, now loosing again!
Time to get REAL.
Update: have to get consistent to make it stick and become real. On to September!

I love mine. It really does help me be accountable for getting in those steps. Hang in there friend! emoticon emoticon

    I love the way you are tracking and analyzing each thing. Shows what a real Spark People member should be doing. You hold yourself accountable and then plan for what you need to work on. This is an excellent plan. Keep Sparking.

    At least you keep getting back up on the wagon, so as long as we do not quit, we can still get to the end of our journey and learn a lot along the way. I enjoyed your blog as it reminds me of myself. I keep falling off, but keep getting back up!
