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 and am back to doing it the normal way to get the last 40 lb. off. I don't regret the huge jump ...

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 and am back to doing it the normal way to get the last 40 lb. off. I don't regret the huge jump start I gave my health at all after years of doing the right thing and not having results because my adrenals, thyroid and pituitary weren't working properly.

I have to constantly work at reminding myself that I am worth it as self-esteem was trashed during childhood. I know I am, but the bad stuff is easier to believe sometimes.

In August 2014 I signed back up with the gym I had gone to prior (had to take most of a year off for the Shape program) and committed to time with a trainer 2x/week for six months. Making me a priority in this!
