Skippy- I'm back and trying to find ME again!!

Hi,

In February 2009, I was taking a good look at myself and where I was in my life, I realized there were some things I wanted to change before my dreaded 50th birthday. I joined TOPS and SparkPeople in hopes of finding the motivation and the tools I need to get back what I lost when I regained the 40 pounds I lost in 2002 my self-esteem!

Well I did it!! In December of 2009, I reached my goal!! Only to be sidelined by an unexplained overuse injury (fractured ankle) ...
Hi,

In February 2009, I was taking a good look at myself and where I was in my life, I realized there were some things I wanted to change before my dreaded 50th birthday. I joined TOPS and SparkPeople in hopes of finding the motivation and the tools I need to get back what I lost when I regained the 40 pounds I lost in 2002 my self-esteem!

Well I did it!! In December of 2009, I reached my goal!! Only to be sidelined by an unexplained overuse injury (fractured ankle) in February.

Nowadays I'm just trying to get back into the routine I was in before I got sidlined. I found the crutches were great exercise. I maintained my weight, even lost a few pounds while I was using them, but the cast came off in June, and I gained 8 lbs. over the summer due to troubles with swelling and aching in my foot- otherwise lack of exercise and no motivation.

Last year I received a promotion at work. Ha, some promotion- a lot more responsibility, salaried (more hours-less pay), cuts in personnel and a lot more responsiblity, not to mention the STRESS that comes with being the boss!

45 pounds later and a year of overeating has got me to the point of where I am now-- realizing I'm not happy and that I need to get back to some kind of organized routine- one with more disipline.

I've come back to my "roots." SparkPeople helped me once and I know you will help me again.

Here's to a banner year!! Let's GO!

Glad to hear that your ankle is healing. Don't push yourself to fast with your exercising. You don't want a set back.
You at least made your goal unlike me I am not any where's near my goal. I keep wondering when I am going to make my goal. I keep setting little goals but haven't even made one of them.
I am still attending Tops I just keep yo-yoing. I am so tried of it.
Any suggestion , I eat healthy most of the time and exercise when I remembersome nights I think of it to late.

Hi Sherry ,
How are you doing I try to catch you when you are on Sparks. How is your summer going?
I got a job helping out a friend with her mom that has Alzheimer's I am in to my fourth week . I work three days a week at her house for five hours each day I get her up and sponge bath her because there is only a half bath on the first floor then I feed her and she has a piano she can play or book she like to look through. Her daughter got the piano years ago at the dollar store it's real nice it plays songs and different tunes. She is in the last stage someday I can't understand her and others she is real good like today.
Well drop me a line when you can. HUgs and Love Lorraine
