Determined to Succeed!

Weight has always been a battle for me and Spark has been a helpful place to keep me focused on my health journey. It does help having others who truly understand how hard this really can be and I love my SP teams and friends!

I went on "Shape Reclaimed" through a Nutritionist in October, 2013 and lost 87 lb. by March, 2014. It quit happening so I went off program mid July, 2014 to give my body a break. Unfortunately I let the stress/emotional eating get to me and I gained about 60 back. My own fault. I just can't allow carbs and sugars without much planning.

In August 2014 I signed back up with the gym I had gone to prior and committed to time with a trainer 2x/week for six months. I am now on my own and using the extra % for monthly massages. I missed those!

As of July 31, 2015 I am back on Shape and working with the Nutritionist. I am not going to fall back into those bad habits this time. I learned a lot about myself in the past 10 months.

Shape update.... not going as well this time. Lots of stalls and mostly from added stress (from my dad's health and then death to events and decisions needed for homeschool co-op) and hormone levels. Things seem to finally be more level now and here it is mid-February 2016.

Thank you Janet for your reading and kind comments on my blog! I was HAPPY to get in a PICTURE of our Schoolroom finally! What's interesting right now is we are Homeschooling near the fireplace in the living room as the heater is broken in the schoolroom and will take us many months to save up so we will use the room in the later Spring months when it starts dethawing up there ! You can SEE your breath!
Hope co-ops are going well! Daniel is taking Kingdom Animalia ~they are making a GREAT informational book ,doing one to two pages each co-op~ it is an interactive book with flaps ! His other co-op is Learning the History of our county~another book filled with interesting history facts.Afterwards ,there is a Legos club that I help out with that he LOVES !Have a fun-filled day ! emoticon
