Startin Over

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

My original introduction on my Spark Page is about no more excuses. Yet I keep falling into that same way of thinking. At one point I had lost 47 pounds - now looking at my tracker it is obvious that I have gained back 25 of those. The playing games started in July 08 but game time is over and it is time to grow up. My health depends on it. I swore I would never go back to my high weight but I am well on my way. So today I have taken some new steps. I have recalculated my weight loss goal. Looking back - March 8 -3 weeks away-was supposed to be the final goal date and I am far from that. I am back to using sparkpeople for more then the nutrition tracker ( usually not even staying in my limits) and I plan to start posting my goals and accomplishments on my page. Journaling and getting motivation from the teams all helped before so I see no reason that it won't work again. Today is my birthday and it seems like a good day to make a new start and once again stop with the excuses.
First goal - lose 5 pounds (27 pounds on tracker). I hope to accomplish this by month's end. For this I will give myself a spark goody with my next goal reward being something more tangible. I wish myself the courage I need to get there. emoticon
