GooD NeWs...

Good News:

I tracked my food yesterday for the first time in three weeks. I was within my calories and felt more in control than I have in a long time.
I am using Sparkpeople to track now.
Sorry Weight Watchers – I still ♥ ya!
But as I mentioned before, I was getting discouraged losing and regaining the same 5lbs since September and just felt like I needed a change?

I like that Sparkpeople breaks down the calories to show you how much fat, protein, and carbs you are eating and uses easy-to-read pie-charts. They also break down your day to show you where you fell and didn't fall within the healthy ranges -- that I REALLY like.
Who knew that while I was within my calories today that the majority of them fatty foods and I didn't eat enough protein?

I know something wasn't clicking on Weight Watchers -- even when I was following the plan to a *T* I wasn't seeing the results I wanted and I have to assume I wasn't eating a proper balance?

Just a few days ago I wrote that my goal was to just maintain my weight -- and I want to retract that.
That is a crappola attitude and me selling myself short!
I am fed up with selling myself short!

My 41st birthday is about 11 weeks away and I would LOVE to lose 15-20lbs by then. And that is a totally attainable goal!

The best gift I could give myself!

I think the only way I am going to do that is to track my food, change my diet and stay within healthy ranges, and EXERCISE!!!!

I am 99% sure I will be joining Planet Fitness this coming week. I love the price and it seems like the type of gym for me – I just am not impressed that they offer no classes? I really wanted to try Zumba and maybe do a yoga/pilates as well.
Can’t have it all!
Well you can – but not for $19.99 a month!

Any Planet Fitness folks out there?
I would love some honest feedback other than the hubbub I read online!

I like feeling in control again.
I think I just needed to shake things up a bit!

Blessed Be…
