overkill and new plan

Monday, February 06, 2012

OK...I have been doing SP for two years now and love it...ut I seemed to lose my motivation and needed a change up. so I started leading FIrstplace4health Bible study. I know that I need to rely on God for this all areas of my life and weight loss/maintenance is no exception. And since I have gained the last two weeks and realize I am rather out of control with my eating, again, I decided to make another change up and went back to a Weightwatchers meeting today. I know that this is tooooo much focus on weightloss and not balance, but that I also need a change up.soo...

The new plan.

I am going to get on SP only once per day, to log in, check on my buddies and read one article. Maybe log my fitness.

I am going to start tracking by hand so I can share with my Bible study group.

I am going to count freggies and points rather than calories.

Continue to try and change from diet soda to water. This is a constant challenge for me.

So....buddies, I still believe in SP with my whole heart and am going to be getting on here to support you, but I need to spend less time on my butt on the computer and more time moving..and I just need a change.

Still need the support though.

    I also find that tracking WW points by hand using a small notebook as food journal is less time-consuming and less complicated than tracking by computer, though I personally am not very good with computers. And, as I am not currently a member of WW, Spark People is invaluable for me to get the support I need.

    Wish you success in finding the balance you seek for your life. God bless you.

    Ok! You have to do what's right for you! I know that too much time on the computer can take you away from what you need to do! You'll still have the support!

    I totally understand. I too love SP, but I'm trying to do similar things. Move more. Sit on SP less. Like everything, it's all about balance!
