Wednesday, January 16, 2013      5 comments

I should not have eaten the Subway double chocolate chip cookie. I thought I needed something sweet and went with a coworker to Subway. When I entered the cookie in my food log I found out how many calories. Yikes 210! Just another reason to... Read more

I entered the food I have eaten and plan to eat today, and WOW way too much. I will change my dinner plans for sure. Tracking what you eat definitely helps see what goes in and could prevent overeating.... Read more

I have been a member of Spark People for a very long time. I started it because I feel it is a great program and tool to help me lose weight. In the past I have lost 40 pounds using WW. Since that is not in my budget now, I am using SP which ... Read more

I have been tracking my food and exercise this week. I know this is one of the best ways to achieve my goal by being accountable for what I eat and do and thus lose the weight. The weekend is near and that is the hardest time as far as eating ... Read more

I've been a member of Spark People for a long time and have not seen any results all because I do not use it or even really try to eat less and move more. I know this is really stupid. It is very clear what I need to do (I have done it before ... Read more

I met with a trainer today and did a fit test. I had one of these done six months ago when I first joined the gym. While I have not lost the amount of weight I should have (I haven't followed a good diet to actually lose weight), I am more fle... Read more

It's been a crazy couple weeks. I applied for a job and got called for an interview. The interview was in MN so I was away from home for a week doing that. Bad news though, I did not get the job. The other issue is I gained some weight back that... Read more

I treated myself to eating lunch out today and had a Qdoba burrito. I usually do not eat the whole thing because I know it is too much food. For some unknown reason today I felt like eating and I kept eating until it was gone. The other bad t... Read more

I joined SP a few years ago hoping to lose weight. I've lost weight before but did it through Weight Watchers and was a member of a gym and went to the gym. I don't have those options now and am struggling with doing it on my own. I sure hop... Read more
Ate too much today

I'm feeling pretty fat today and I guess for good reason. I went out to lunch today and splurged and got a sandwich. I made the mistake now of looking up the nutrition info. I ate my total calorie intake for the day in one meal. I guess next... Read more
