Monday, July 18, 2016      3 comments

I'm restarting. Again. Which makes this more like re-restarting, or re-re-restarting. Regardless it still means I haven't given up. I reset all my streaks, the ended streaks made me feel like a failure which in turn made me avoid tracking. My we... Read more
Off the Wagon..... Again

I've fallen off the wagon. Again. I suppose I can't be too far off it though if I'm still logging in every day. I missed one day before midnight and lost my streak. I'm stumbling but I haven't fallen down yet!... Read more

I'm back down 3 of the 4 pounds I magically gained. I have learned a few things: 1. It's REALLY hard to force myself to drink 4 - 16.9 oz bottles of water a day, but I'm sucking them down anyway. 2. You have to stand in the middle of t... Read more

I'm so frustrated. Got on the scale this morning and I'm UP almost 4 pounds this WEEK. How is this possible?! I've been tracking everything I eat & even measuring. SP has me eating more calories than I usually do when I loose weight, 1600 vs 120... Read more

I read an article on kicking a tough addiction today (Dear Abby on smoking). It talked about going cold turkey and taking it one day at a time. If you can do it today, you can do it tomorrow. This really hit me. I need to stop feeling bad about ... Read more
