Spring it on... A New Start (again)

Friday, March 10, 2017

First of all, I have to admit to feeling quite frustrated with myself at the number of times I've started over. But as many have said, you only fail if you don't keep trying. So here I am ... again ... trying to tame my sweet tooth (actually, my carb tooth) and build sustainable eating habits that will keep me out of this hamster wheel of dieting.

Tracking food and exercise in Spark is a huge help to me for weight loss. I have not been doing so well with that since January, but I am back on track now! I also want to increase my chances of staying on track by adding some blogging to my routine, as well as participating in my Biggest Loser (BL) challenge team, the Tangerine Tigers (roar!!).

Of course I'm grateful for Spark, but I'm also hoping that one day, I won't need the trackers and the challenges to be a healthier version of myself. But until then, here's to our journey together!

All the best wishes for everyone who shares this struggle.

    I have been in the same situation, lost 100 pounds only to regain 70 of it. Now I just shake my head every time I get on the scale and lose a pound, and think, well that's great, but if I didn't gain, I would be at this amount.... Now, I just see it as a practice run, and so now I know how to reduce the weight better is go round. Practice is the key to success they say. Best wishes to you on your journey to health.

    I think it's great that you keep trying. I think that I've decided to not consider this a weight loss attempt but more a change in my lifestyle. It's the daily decision to make healthier choices and hopefully the weight will come off too
