Day 1 of Day 4475

Monday, May 03, 2021

I have been trying to lose weight and get healthy and fit LITERALLY for 13 years. I gave birth to my son 13 years ago and have yo-yo dieted since then. I have had some what I thought at the time as success but of course it was short lived. I always gained the weight back and each time I ended up weighing more than when I started, WHEW! What a vicious cycle. I would beat myself down mentally about it, and would verbalize such negative things to myself and then would eat those emotions and end up feeling even worse. Not anymore! I say today is day 1 YET again but a different day 1. My will power is much stronger, my motivations are much deeper, and my mind is much more focused. I have finally learned to listen to my body and I now truly know that what works for one or some or a lot just may not work for me and that's okay. I choose me, I choose MY journey this time. If I have to blog every single day to stay focused I will do just that. Here's to day 1!!

    I have been a sparker since 2008 and it does have it's ups and downs but I check in every day and I track all of my nutrition. The night before or the morning of I decide what my nutrition will be for the day and I add it to the nutrition page and that takes care of it for the day. I do refer back to it as the day goes on because I do have the app on my phone. It takes the pressure off and I don't have to go back and forth do I want this or do I want that. This tracking is big for me and I have had great success! I wish you success emoticon

    Good for you. I agree a daily blog just putting my thoughts out there, working through whatever it is that I am focused on and working through it is huge in my ability to lose the weight and be successful in maintaining for a few years now. emoticon

    Sparker since 2005. Many ups and downs. The number one thing hat keeps me going down is tracking ALL my food everyday, good or bad. It creates accountability and awareness. Track, and may the Spark be with you.
