Good grief, is it Friday already? Where has the week gone? You know the older you get the faster time goes by.
I started (last Sunday) logging my food consumption into SparkPeople as well as WW. One of the interesting things I found is the ratios of carbs, fats and proteins I eat. WW doesn't give you a breakdown of that and that is a bad thing. I like the charts they give you at SP and it has opened my eyes to the fact that I have not really been doing so good. Even though I've lost weight on WW's points system I have found out this week that sometimes when I stay under points I am way up on calories and sometimes way up on the fat calories to be exact. So since I don't go to meetings (non in my area close) and just use the home scales to log my weight into their website weekly, I'm considering quitting them and just sticking with SP. I'm not going to make any rash decisions and do it right now but it is in my thoughts. Think I will keep the double journaling up for another week or so and see what happens. Right now I'm trying to keep my ratios of fat, carbs and protiens within the ranges SP has set. Then after a couple of weeks if the pounds start coming off better I will make my decision. What are your thoughts on the matter?
This will be a lonely weekend without any company. But hopefully the weather will be nice to me and I can get outside and walk. Nope, haven't started up again yet. "Come on, Debbie, you've got to get back in the groove. But I don't want too, it takes too much effort." This is the battle that has been going on in my mind for 2 weeks now. And it's not working. I know what the problem is though. I had someone to walk with and get exercise with there for a while and now it's just me (what a let down). And I don't think I like my own company that much. I'm just too boring to walk with. Come on guys and gals, I need some encouragement here. You are the ones that got me started in the first place. Reading all your blogs about your exercise routines and it finally struck home. I needed that too. But here lately I just read them and say, Whew, that sounds like too much work. Thanks for all the encouragement you've given me so far though. Without all of you I probably would have quit this weight loss journey a couple of months ago.
Hope your weekend is grand!!
