Reflections on A Year
Thursday, October 13, 2011
I have been a part of Sparkpeople for 1 year now and have interacted with many interesting people. All of our journeys have been hard at one time or another. All of us have just one goal - to succeed in this journey.
We’ve had setbacks due to health, willpower, temptations in the kitchen, vacations, non-supportive husbands and discouragement with our progress. We know what we have to do to achieve success – STICK WITH IT.
So we journey on, pick ourselves up and try to “GIT ER DONE”.
As for myself, I lost 30 pounds in the first 2.5 months and have been at a plateau since then. I keep gaining and losing the same 6-7 pounds. That tells me I am successful at maintaining within a certain range. Now all I have to do is kick start my journey again so I can move onto achieving my goal. I looked back at my daily food log and saw what I was doing in those first few months. Snacks have crept back into my diet. I was drinking soda during the summer ( I cut that out again). Going out to eat on weekends has got to be restricted. My exercise has got to increase.
I will be successful !
I will be a thinner, healthier ME !
I want to be there for my DH and Grandkids !
