I'm Back!

Thursday, June 16, 2016

After a hiatus of almost 6 years, I've decided that I need SparkPeople to help keep me accountable for what goes in my mouth. Specifically, after a routine visit to my physician earlier this year, she said that I needed to lose 20 pounds or else! Well, her "or else" was some kind of medication to curb my appetite, and I wasn't having any of that. So on March 14, I hopped back on the SparkPeople train and to date I've lost 10 pounds. I will have to say that the measuring cups and spoons are my new friends. I keep them out on the counter in front of my face at all times so that I will measure out the exact portion I need at each meal. Of course, my dear husband is always trying to put them back in their proper place, but I just pull them back out! Just so you know, he is in no way sabotaging my healthy eating; as he has to eat what I cook! Anyway, it's good to be back.
