So July was pretty good it was the best month so far. I didn't lose any weight but I walked more than I have all year so that is good. I hope to do even better this month. I don't know what happened but I feel very calm and I feel that motivation is back to do what I have to do to lose the weight.

So my goals for August are as follows

1. track my food everyday

2. walk at least two miles everyday.

Short and sweet. I also started my weight loss goal over at my new weight. So I feel I like I have a clean start. Hope everyone has a great month.

So June was a good month I walked more than I had been doing all year but the weight has just kept coming because I eat junk and I drink to much diet soda. When I first started spark last year I had cut my soda down to three cans a day I don't what happened but I'm back to the old ways.

Enough is enough it is a new month a new day. I will cut back my late night eating again this month and I will eat breakfast in the morning. I will cut my soda down to three cans as well this month and hopefully add more water.

I have put on thirty pounds of the fifty I have lost and I'm tried of trying to figure out what looks good on me. I refuse to go back to size 16 pants.

These are my goals for July

1 track my food every day

2 eat breakfast every day

3 walk at least two miles aday

4 and review how I am doing every week.

Just want to say thank you to all my sparkfriends for their support I know I can do this.

    Hi sweetie@

It is so good that you have stopped and re-evaluated your plan, goals, and yourself.

I have found the number 1 thing that has helped me lose weight is diligently tracking all my foods...and drinks. It makes all the difference.

Here is a plan to consider, many people have been successful with it:

150 minutes a week of fitness
1350-1600 calories a day. Do your very best to see that the first 1350 is filled wih protein and veggies and healthy choices BUT then leave 250 calories for your "Happy calories" This can be 1 soda, some candy, extra bread... whatever. If you ahve a special dinner with your mom or your sweetie, save up 3 days worth of fun calories, and you have an extra 750 calories for that meal. OR if it was an impromptu special dinner... then the net 3 days just omit your fun calories. This usually leads to about a 10 lb weight loss in a month. It's called the "drop 10 plan"

Best wishes!

    Remember, YOU are worth it. Make the decision everyday to do something positive in regards to your health. You know what to do, you just have to mentally tell yourself that "I'm worth the effort." I wish you the best.
