First good day

Friday, April 13, 2007

Today was the actual first day I started and I feel I did ok. It is surprising how many calories you actually take in. I thought I was doing god with the little I ate but come to find out I am wrong. I am eating the wrong things still. I need so much help with this it is harder than I had hoped it would be. I really want to do this but I am not sure if I can. I have to much temptaion and negativity and not enough support around me.

    Welcome to SP! Hooray for your first good day! I think you will find there is a lot of support here. I don't have much support here at home so SP is a saving grace for me. Don't give up on yourself--it is hard and it takes time to figure out what to do and how to do it. But you CAN do it! I'm pullin' for ya!

    I felt so lost when i first started this program. I too was surprised by the amount of calories I was taking in. I actually thought I was figuring them wrong. I was but not the way i thought! i bought a scale and found out I was drastically underestimating portion size:-( Once I was able to get the portions size under control the rest came in time. There is a lot of useful information on the site so take your time while you educate yourself. I swear that is half the battle. I didn't even realize I could eat Almonds to get Fiber as long as I limit my intake to one serving. Little things like that have helped a lot. You have started with Sparkpeople and that is a huge leap in the right direction! Keep going:-)
