From Day 230 to day 1- Am done.

Thursday, April 07, 2016

I have been on spark for 230 days as of today. Yes exiting or not . Considering that I have not gained or loss 1lb. As for those of you who don't know my story. I have been fluctuating between 145 to 152 for the past 230 days. So now back to day 1. It is a big step.
No I am not starting over .
I have been documenting my journey and realize that there is only one time that I actually lost weight in 230 days and maintained it for over 1 month. And surprisingly it was when I decided to take a break from dieting and enjoy my thanksgiving/chrismas and new years and party. It was during a time I was "suppose to gain" Since I was in vaca from school, I travelled for 2 weeks and it was the holidays.
Around november last year I decided to take a break from the whole diet/logging food and exercising. I was tired and disappointed, of being tired and disappointed. So I just stopped. I ate small portions sometimes, barely exercised like 1/week or something. Had pretty balanced meals. I have always been a heath conscious person. Never had to work so hard to loose weight until I gained it over 2 years . So I just went back to my old ways which were pretty healthy. This went on for end of November 2015-december .
InJanuary I decided to take my weight. I was 146 from 152. For some its not a lot but for me it was great. I was super exited. And this excitement led me to go back to dieting, logging in my food, calorie counting and exercising . Yes I went back to it hard; and fast-foward to now April I gained it all back. Last week I was pretty dumbfounded and thought that this was insane. The only time in 12 months I lost weight. was when I was not trying to loose weight. So I decided again to stop trying. Its been 3 days now. I found myself slowly getting back to my healthy old good habits. I am still working out- Just because I feel good when I do it and also for the past month I have worked out weekly. So perhaps it is becoming a habit. a good one. So I decided to just relax, lay back and focus on things like facials and doing my nails.

    You would be correct in that you (we) need to relax and try to enjoy the journey. I wish you great luck in this journey of life. :) -Ma

    Don't think of it as a "diet" think of it as a life-style change. You make it happen. Positive attitude helps too. But you have to do what you have to do. I wish you good luck!
