Doing a Little Better

Sunday, July 27, 2008

First of all, I sincerely want to thank everyone who stopped by to wish me a happy birthday, give me a Spark goodie, or comment on my Spark page. It means Soooo much to me.

After splurging a little with a couple of birthday celebrations, I had a very good day yesterday as far as my program goes. It started with a very nice walk/short hike with a few other sparkers from the Garden State team. It was really a lot of fun. For the rest of the day, I was pretty careful about what I ate. I did have some ice cream, but it was only a small cup. This is what I have been mentally preaching to myself, so I am glad I followed my own advice. Even though the cup looked kinda small, it was more than satisfying. Ice cream used to be a major vice for me, but I gave it up for almost six months when I first started SparkPeople. Now I eat it only very infrequently, and I hope to give it up again after the summer.

Today is starting off good, and I hope I have the strength to resume my weight loss in earnest starting tomorrow (though I think I gave myself a decent head start), as I have promised to do.

    Happy belated birthday & congratulations on losing 40 pounds, that's really good!!! It's good to see that your sticking to your "no ice cream" rule b/c that's one of my downfalls too!! Keep up the great work, you should really be proud of yourself for what you've accomplished!
