I'm really disappointed in myself. I fell off the wagon for a while BAD...and gained back half--HALF--of what I've lost so far. That's disgusting.
New goal: burn at least 200 extra calories a day, and lose another 10 pounds from where I am by the time AggieCon rolls around (AKA, first week of April). I need to get back on track here, no excuses.
I really need to find a way to curb (or distract myself from) these cravings. They're killing me.

Sure I'm still "overeating" a lot, but at least it's not BY a lot! Overeating by SparkPeople's count isn't that bad, but I still need to up my exercise. My problem living with my mom is that I don't want her to watch/see me DO any exercises, and with the bad weather lately she's been home a lot XD Even with all my stumbling so far, I lost 8 pounds in January--that's amazing for me!
Now that I'm starting to get a handle on my eating and such, I really need to focus on figuring out how to make money. I'm in dire straights financially and I don't really have any future prospects at the moment. I've opened up my DeviantArt account (http://vaprrenon.deviantart.com just in case lol) to commissions, but it's definitely not a solution to everything going on.
If anyone knows of any entry-level (terrestrial) wildlife jobs let me know. I don't seem to qualify for anything I find :(

So, I learned/realized something at my personal Sunday weigh-in today.
I've lost 7 pounds since my start weight on January 1st. HOW?!
I couldn't understand it...I BARELY exercise and I've been overeating almost every day! I fully expected to GAIN weight on that scale this week, but I dropped exactly 2 pounds since last Sunday, how on earth could that happen?!
...Then I realized something. I was overeating by *SparkPeople's* standards, not necessarily mine (aka, my old ways). I may go over what the site says should be my daily goals, but by not eating, say, twice that amount, rethinking a few unhealthy options (even if it's not all of them), and even having an amount of calories in the form of a fruit-and-yogurt-only smoothie instead of the same amount in candy and chocolate, things have already begun to add up!
I'm done with beating myself up over slip-ups and wanting to give up because I REALLY want those cookies today and couldn't resist. I'm human, and I'm still making positive changes. I don't have to give up my love of taste; I can have yummy things AND be healthy at the same time!

I'm overeating way too much. Period. It's not as bad as it COULD be, but it's still not good.
Luckily, the leftover stuff from Christmas is essentially gone (finally!), so that's some less temptation hanging around. Mom also keeps talking about wanting to lose weight, so hopefully she'll want to/I can convince her to buy less "junk" to keep around the house.
Really, though, my eating wouldn't be so bad if I was exercising more. THAT is my biggest problem hands down. I NEED to somehow make myself exercise more. I need to find some sort of motivator or this is never going to work. I think I'm going to bug my poor boyfriend to semi-police me on it.
