I have never written a blog before but eagerly read SP entries. I admire those who are able to express their thought and feelings about weight loss, struggles and successes, but never attempted to add an entry myself.
I have been overweight my whole life and have tried many diets and exercise programs. At one time I lost 50 pounds on WW but gradually gained it all back. I found SP and have for several years used the program to guide meal planning, and to track activities and what I eat. But, I have lost very little weight and in fact I have gained nearly 10 pounds this winter. Today I realized, after signing in, that I hadn't logged my intake for several days! Along with that omission, I have not been able to exercise due to a back injury. My walking partner isn't able to walk with me any longer. I haven't found another way to get more movement into my daily routine. And I have let depression, family difficulties , discouragement and disappointment lead me to emotional eating.
Maybe putting this discovery in writing will help clarify the goals I need to set, and get back on track.
