I have just returned (once again) to spark people. Since joining in 2008, I have had victories and defeats and periods of going MIA. I'm happy to be back. It helps me to stay "grounded", I think. Focused. Aware. I periodically get weary of feeling like I have to track my food and fitness...and those are the times I tend to falter and regain weight. I am finally accepting that this may be a life long process and I may never be completely free from the emotional attachments I have to food. As with other disabilites or diseases, It's something I can learn to manage and live with. It doesn't HAVE TO beat me. I have choices. Every day. Sometimes I make choices that lead away from my goals and true desires. But I also make good choices and hope that those good choices will outweigh (no pun intended) the poor choices in the long run.
The only thing I know to do when I fall, is to get back up, brush off my dusty knees and wounded pride...and step at a time.

I try to get some kind of exercise in most days.

    Hey there... thanks for your sweet comment! Unfortunately since the photo I have regained about 12 pounds... I got lazy after a 2 year plateau and falsely thought I was stuck no matter what?! LOL?! Um... it just doesn't work like that! So I am back on track and focused again on both my eating AND my working out (instead of one or the other - which is what I was doing for a couple of months!) Anyway - we are in this together girlie!!!

    We can do it!
    Spark On!
