Sometimes We Trip & Fall…The important thing is to get back up!

I joined Spark People in ’06 and had great success. I got down to a size 6 by ’07 (the smallest I had been in years) and I felt better than I had in a VERY long time. I got married in the spring of ’08; however, the marriage was short-lived and only last four months. I NEVER expected to be divorced…a second time. I had been single for nine years and thought this was “the one” who I would spend the rest of my life ...
Sometimes We Trip & Fall…The important thing is to get back up!

I joined Spark People in ’06 and had great success. I got down to a size 6 by ’07 (the smallest I had been in years) and I felt better than I had in a VERY long time. I got married in the spring of ’08; however, the marriage was short-lived and only last four months. I NEVER expected to be divorced…a second time. I had been single for nine years and thought this was “the one” who I would spend the rest of my life with. I was so embarrassed I had made this huge mistake. At the same time things were unraveling with my marriage, I was told I needed a hysterectomy. I didn’t have time for that! The longer I had to prolong my surgery, the less I could exercise. I had to wait until the end of the school year. By that time, I was teaching from a chair and on bed rest when I was at home. Needless to say, with the stress of my life and the lack of exercise, the pounds came piling on!

I could either feel sorry for myself for the way things turned out OR I could pick myself up, dust myself off and move on with my life.

I choose to be a survivor!

I am getting back on track with my weight AND with my life! Hope you will follow me in my journey!

Life is good today…

Thank you for some sunshine!! I spent an hour and a half with my daughter and her two friends at the playground soaking up the rays, and it felt tremendous. Bless you!

Thank you for adding me as a friend! I am honored and feel privileged to be able to add you to my friends as well.

This will not be a quick journey my sparked-friend, but it will be a very rewarding one! You will find many forks in the road and you might falter - but I will be here to pick you up and help you back on track!

Hugs,

P.S. We all falter! The trick is to get back on track as soon as possible! The longer it takes you to get back on track, the harder to re-lose the weight. You really CAN do this!
