Life, thankfully, has a restart button

I am back.

Back but changed.

It has taken these last two years, unbeknownst to me, to feel alive again. The transition from my divorce in 2010 was long but very much worth it. I didn't realize I wasn't emotionally and mentally healthy until I was.

And, now? I have never felt happier. My sons are thriving, I am thriving. 2012 has been very, very good to us in so many ways and I am grateful.

I have failed to lose the weight I gained ...

I have failed to lose the weight I gained back but, I recognize that it's time to do it. I have done induction over and over and over again, make it about a week, then fail. If I can make it past a week, I will be successful so, here I am back at spark.

I do have some challenges, I don't have a lot of free time to log food and exercise, but I am going to what I can to incorporate it back in to my daily routine. Of course, this is where I look to you all for your never ending support :)

Welcome back! I went through 2 divorces in the last 7 years - and I can feel what you are saying about losing yourself! I am happily married now for a 3rd time just last October - and I feel so blessed. I just saw your post that you are rejoining Spark. I just sent you a friend request - so we can maybe help each other. I am brand new to Spark this week and looking for a way to stay on track, motivated and change my overall lifestyle to be healthier and happier. Hoping this journey also opens up the opportunity to make some new friends.

Best of luck and hang in there. Remember - you can get through anything!

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in July. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? that is too much! cant do it! But i here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for a yr and a half. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while sitting and leg raises. very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! emoticon emoticon
click on link below! or if that doesnt work cut and paste it! please join me on my new journey to begin again!!
