Back again May 2015!

I have been away from Spark People for about 2 years. I am ready to take charge and get control of my self. I have gained back all the weight I said I never would again. You know how we all say "someday, I'll . . . ," and for many of us "someday" is code for "never"? " My someday is here.

I have not had much success with the spark diet. It does not seem to fit with my life style. I do enjoy logging on and logging in my points and my exercise. So for now I am just trying to move ...

I have not had much success with the spark diet. It does not seem to fit with my life style. I do enjoy logging on and logging in my points and my exercise. So for now I am just trying to move more and eat less... also very important .... manage stress.

8/2015 I have learned slowly to drink water and exercise more. I am concentrating on sleeping 8 hours a day. I only make it 6 some nights. I wake up at 4 and cannot go back to sleep...stupid ol menopause is what the elderly ladies tell me. But my plans are to continue to make lifetime healthy choices. Praying always.

emoticon About your looking healthy comment on your blog...

I am not one for wanting attention..Matter of factly I don't like it at all. When I lose weight I don't like it when people make mention of it when they see me..It makes me uncomfortable...Weird probably I know..lol..but the one compliment I did get that stays in my thoughts and helps to motivate me is when a former coworker saw me and said," You look so healthy." I want that healthy look again too.

I am here cheering you on!!
