Week 1 - The caterpillar

Monday, August 06, 2018

So it's been 1 week today that I've joined SP, and all is going well so far. I have the motivation and now a safe place to spill what needs spilling, as well as a place to hold myself accountable. Losing 70 pounds is not going to be as easy as it was to put on, but I am not focused on weight loss primarily at this point. I am focusing on establishing routine, sticking to some dietary changes (3-4 weeks ago I stopped the Splenda, 1 week of not eating meat, and sticking to my scheduled days to exercise).

I will admit it was a little weird to go to my Dad's Birthday party yesterday, and while everyone was enjoying BBQ, I was eating a PBJ, lol. But I feel good. It's been a while since I have felt this good.

Here's to seeing what this week brings me - xoxo emoticon
