Starting OVER Bloggity Blog

Friday, January 18, 2013

Well, here I am!

It has been 12 days since I logged back on to spark. I decided to give it a good little bit before I posted my first blog.

The last few times that I thought about getting serious about getting back to my Sparking and eating healthy, I would post this sob story blog about how this is it... and (now I know) it really wasn't . So, I decided this time that I would wait and "treat" myself with a new blog after I KNEW that I was for reals this time!!

I feel great about it this time y'all! I am in a groove just like the last time and really feel good about it. Getting started is so darn hard, and sticking with it for a few days and not caving in is even harder!!! I believe I am over that hump and my new motto for EVERYday:

I like it! It's an oldie but a goodie and it really works. One day at a time!

So down to the nitty gritty!

12 days ago (on a Monday) I decided to step on my scale. I cannot even tell you the last time I did this. At the least...6 months. I knew that I gained all of the 30lbs back that I lost, but was so incredibly nervous to see how much more damage had been done. Do you know, though, that I honestly thought that it wouldn't be over that! YEAH RIGHT. I hopped on and sadly saw that I had gained an additional 10 lbs!!! I was calm about it. I didn't cry, I didn't shout.... I just said..."Sheryl...you big stupid stupid girl...how could you do it? How could you just let it go that bad?" And that's when it happened.

I had mine!

I discussed it with the hubs over our morning coffee and he was on board with me. Phase 1 South Beach...here we come! New and healthy and skinny Meguiars coming right up!

12 days later I am down 6 lbs! Woot woot!!!

I don't think that is too shabby. We haven't been real strict with the SB plan, but for the most part we do eat the SB way. I have learned that the more times you go on South Beach and get off the plan and so on... the less you lose in Phase 1. I really am not sure why? But, I do feel good about the 6lb loss. Plus, I already FEEL so much better!! Fast food NEVER enters my thoughts anymore. Eating bread at every meal is NOT even an issue anymore.

Moderation moderation moderation!!!
Water water water!!!!
Spark spark spark!!!

So here is my first blog for the start of the "new" new me!!!

It feels GREAT to be back and it feels BETTER knowing that it is for the long haul this time!!!

Happy Friday my beautiful Sparkfriends!
I hope you have a great weekend, make the best choices and continue with YOUR Sparkjourney!!!!

    If I never lost another ounce I would still eat low carb for life. I just feel so much better in so many ways!

    Welcome back!
