It's Been Almost a Year! - NO, it's now been two years!

Update: I have now been participating in SP for two years. Looking back at last year (see 2nd paragraph), I am sorry to say I have fallen down on the job. However, I have also returned because I know my SP friends will encourage me instead of beat me up! I have joined SparkCoach because I know I need that accountability. I have gained most of my weight loss back, but not all of it, for that I am grateful. One day at a time will get me back on track, and I know with the help of so many ...

One day at a time will get me back on track, and I know with the help of so many friends I will take the weight off!
It was a real shock to realize I have been participating in SparkPeople for almost a year. As I reviewed what I've been doing, I recognized that I do need a renewal in my commitment. I have set new goals, listed my plan to acheive the goals, and committed to myself and my Lord that I will stay accountable to doing what I have listed. While I had hoped to lose 52 lbs and did not succeed, I have decided I am still successful because I lost 27 lbs, did not gain weight, and did start taking baby steps on exercise and walking which I had never done. So I may not be one of the ones who move rapidly through this, but I am still happy with me because I am keeping on instead of giving up:)

Thanks for adding me as a Friend!!!!! I have added you as one too!!!!! It will be at least 4 more weeks before I am back here. I am having to stay with my mother and she does not have internet. She hurt her back and is in a back brace for at least another month. She can not bend, lift more than 5 pounds or twist so she needs me. Look forward to catching up with everyone when I come back!!!!!

Things I am learning this week: Wholehearted resolve reveals itself through earnest effort that flows from a willingness to adjust course in order to accomplish a purpose. Adjustments made with wholehearted resolve to possess the goal desired will produce lasting results I can live with for the long haul. Thinking of and praying for your journey as we walk this way together. Darlene
