The first 'bump'

Thursday, July 08, 2010

Well, I've hit the first bump in the road. I've been on the Spark program for 5 weeks. In the first 3 weeks I lost 7 lbs, and once again thought I'd found the solution. Since then, zip ! I know that the heavier I am, the weight comes off more quickly. I have been dieting FOREVER.
I'm loving the fruits and veggies and it is easy to go under my allotted calories. When I don't see movement on the scale, I want to eat even LESS. I know that that is a BAD idea. A recent blood test showed that I am very low in potassium and vitamin D.
The key is that I really want to be healthy ! When I get some of these pounds off I will be able to breathe much easier. I know the key is exercise and I am working with 'bands' and walking. I'm not doing anything really aerobic though.
When I was younger I played tennis, softball and worked hard. I looked my very best at 50 . Then the 'relationship' failed and so have I . This sounds 'whiny' to me, but it is how I am feeling today. Tomorrow will be much improved ! emoticon emoticon

    Some folks say to only weigh monthly. The goal i health and the scale is just one part of it. Energy level, attitude, the way your clothes fit, etc are other excellent gauges. Having said that I have to admit that I weigh daily--even take my scale with me on vacation. (JCORYCMA wrote an excellent blog on this.) I just try not to let it bum me out when I gain a little or hit a plateau. So many factors are involved. If you get discouraged it can set off a binge.

    What really matters is that over the long haul you get healthier. I know that is especially important to you with your second chance, eh? Hang in there lady!
