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 commenting on my blog! I have been "away" from the team lately dealing with all of this. But I am still hanging on! I absolutely "LOVE" your idea of practicing maintenance NOW! I never even thought of it that way! I just assumed that I would naturally gain weight right now since I was not able to try and lose any. Wow! It never even occured to me that I could try to hold on to what I have done this far! Thank you so much for that simple but powerful idea! I am going to do just that! I am going to do what I can to "Maintain" until I can figure all of this out! Thank you! emoticon
