A new way to be accountable

Saturday, February 27, 2010

I haven't ever written a blog entry before, even though I find myself composing them in my head all the time. I think it's time they moved from my head to my fingers!

I've been a member of SparkPeople for over five years now. (Wow, has it really been that long?) And my current weight is - pretty much right where it was when I started. I go through spurts of careful eating and exercise, and then I just fall apart. But, I'm still here. I haven't given up.

I reset my goals on February 15 because I wanted to be honest about where I am in this process. And to keep my honest - I'm going to start posting blog entries. I will likely do a little celebrating, a lot of whining, and ramble endlessly - but hey, isn't that what a blog is for?

    I blog nearly every day too. It helps to keep me focused and motivated.

    That is great that you have been on Spark for 5 years, and kudos for not giving up!

    This is all such a crazy up and downhill journey! Being honest with yourself and where you are is a huge first step and probably one of the hardest. Keep the faith in yourself! Just the fact you haven't given up in the past years is a testament to your perseverence! It's in you, lady, now get it out and use it!!! emoticon

    I use blogging as a journal & it really helps.

    Yay! Your first blog! I think it helps alot. I didn't think I was going to blog at first but after reading so many others I decided to give it a try. You should just write like no one else is reading and if someone else does then great! Thats how i see it anyway!

    Can't wait to read more of your blogs...whining and all! And can't wait to celebrate with you along the way!!

    Carren, I'm so glad you've decided to blog! I find it very therapeutic, and my guess is you will as well. Go ahead and whine when you need to--we'll be here to support you. Go ahead and ramble...yep, we'll be here to listen. And as for the celebrating? I KNOW your sparkbuddies are all going to want to be part of that!

    Here's to a big loss in March!

    I hear ya! I am only a little different. I lost the weight. I was at goal and then I fell backwards in the muck and gained way too much back but I am here, I am going to start again Monday and this time I am determined it will stay off. Good luck, I'm rooting for you
