Day 1 – Weight, 222. BMI, 32.8.

Yeah, I’m starting over. Again.

I have 42 pounds to lose to get to my goal of 180 pounds.

I have gained back all of my weight I lost since January.

All of it.


WTF did I do???? And better yet, WHY DID I DO IT!!

I’m not going to lie, the food tasted great. It was yummy. And delicious. And I’m oh so going to miss it.

I decided not to do WW this time. I signed up for Spark People. (user name Chocol8_Lver) I know WW. I can do WW in my sleep. I know the points values of things off the top of my head. Which for some people that is good. For me, I am bored. I need a challenge right now. Not something terribly hard that I can’t do. But something that is going to force me to think, help me figure out new ways to eat food. New foods to eat. I need to change it up a little to get me re-focused. So hopefully this will work for me.

Spark People gave me a goal of burning 770 calories a week. I don’t know about that. But we’ll see. I still don’t have a HRM. I need to purchase one. It originally gave me a goal of 1550 -??? calories per day to eat. I changed that to a range of 1700 – 2150. I found a chart online that varies my food intake per day. I’m going to try to follow that to “zig-zag” my calories every day. Also try to add in some exercise here & there. I don’t know that my first week I will get the 770 calories, but I will try to get something. Maybe 1/2 of that and work my way up. I haven’t done any exercise in several weeks months.

I set myself a goal the other week to walk 20 miles in the month of July. I am going to stick to that goal. Hopefully I can get there. I also set a goal to not look at the scale every week. I don’t think I’m going to follow that. I know myself, I have a scale addiction, and I don’t think I could go a month without it. At least not until I see if Spark People will work for me. So I will continue to WI on Mondays now.


So, my goals for July:

1) Track every day
3) Walk 20 mile


Today’s Plan of Attack:

B: Granola Bar, Coffee, & Banana. – 247
S: Greek Yogurt. – 130
L: Turkey Pita Sandwich, Cottage Cheese. -330
S: 1/8c Cashews & WW cheese stick. -162
D: Salsa chicken over white rice, Broccoli. – 610

I still have about 200 calories left. I’ll probably enjoy a glass of wine & watch an episode of Game of Thrones with the one I love tonight.
