SP Premium


lots of steps back and very little forward.......all is changing!!

Sunday, January 31, 2010

After being offline for a long time now I am back and am going to use all the tools SP has to offer. In the last couple of years my partner and I have had a wonderful baby girl. She is now 15 months old she is walking, running on the go go go!! I was thinking to myself if I really wanting to lose weight and get healthy and fit I must be honest with myself. I have to change the starting weight on my SP page as a reminder of how much weight I had gained in the last couple of years. I must start tracking my food and exercise and water.....EVERYTHING. My lovely wife bought me an I-PHONE where I found an app for SP where I can track my food/water/exercise all easy for me to use. It is rare for me to get time to log onto my computer but my phone thats a different story. I can update my tracker while I am on break at work or lunch. This last September I went see my doc for nutritional counseling which has a crazy eye opener. I had not realized that I had gained so much weight. Its been a struggle but a good struggle. Offffff I go start the year a little slow and pick it up a notch every month...wish me luck. emoticon

    If you've been on track before, you can do it again. A new baby requires adjustments, but you can create new strategies. At least you'll be getting more exercise chasing after her!

    I am also struggling with the ups and downs of weight loss. I joined almost two years ago, lost 30 pounds but during the last 8 months have regained some of it. Sticking to it over the long haul is the greatest challenge. My spouse is a great example in showing it can be done. She is down over 70 pounds now.

    Hey I read this on another blog....

    There is no one that will stop me because I need to complete what I have started and I am in the opinion that anyone can do what I have with nothing more than a decision.

    Good luck on your renewed decision!!!

    Congratulations on your partnership and having a child together, that is soooo awesome!

    As far as the weight loss goes, as you already know, since you've experienced this site before, there are a gazillion tools to use. Plan out your goals, and be specific, and make small changes first to get back into the swing of things.

    Congratulations again and I look forward to seeing your progress!

    Cheers to you and yours!
