Same stuff, different year....

Friday, June 24, 2011

The last two years have gone like this:
Winter=eat with no regard to health
Spring/summer=lose about 20 pounds

I had convinced myself that this was the "normal" way my body works. Apparently in the wintertime I crave carbs and eat a lot. Maybe a latent hibernation thing, I don't know!

But this spring/summer it didn't happen. I didn't wake up one day and feel like losing weight. I woke up every morning feeling like the only good thing about my day was what I was going to eat. But when my jeans started getting too tight again, I realized that I had forgotten my biggest motivator of all--Sparkpeople!

So I'm just as overwhelmed and stressed out as ever, although I do have a new full time job, I'm still workng part time, too....and my mom is still with us, although she is frail and I worry about her every day.....

I'm a little sheepish about being back, but as I read through my old blogs and stuff I realized that the reason I had lost in the past was right here and no place else.

So now that I have identified a seasonal pattern, what I need to do is find a way to keep Sparking once fall/winter show up--hopefully it will be easier than it has in the past....
