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 50 back. My own fault. I went back onto Shape for a month (March 2015) and did not see the success I'd hoped this time due to emotional eating. Short story...things have gotten so intense with my son of late. June 2015 I am going to add doTerra Slim & Sassy oil for appetite control, their shakes and nutrients. I would love to be a success story for these products since I believe in them! Won't know unless I try!

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 and committed to time with a trainer 2x/week for six months. I am now signed on for 1x/week with the trainer for 3 months (March 2015). When this round ends I am switching to monthly massages and doing the gym on my own. Making me a priority in this!

Thank you for the flower pot and good wishes when I was DOD! We were in VA visiting grandchildren and having a great time (and eating a little too much)!

I love to do counted cross-stitch, too! Haven't done it in years, but I have an itch to stitch! emoticon emoticon

I enjoyed reading about your Mother's Day. I'm a dropout of the Spring into Shape program. I've been such a failure this last session I'm debating on whether or not to join again. I've been trying the THM diet, which I think is the right one for me, but I have a hard time with its restrictions, even though it's a very sensible way to eat. Reading your blog today tilted me toward joining up the team again, though. Thanks for the good cheerful approach.

I'm not surprised to hear sugar may play a role in the depression. I know it affects mine. My DD & I are both going to start working harder to eat balanced meals and less processed foods. I'm hoping with someone else in the house now thinking about the same thing as me that we will be more successful. The only foods I'm really wanting to eat right now, most likely due to the grief, is sugary stuff. I hope you'll find a good balance without sugar for your DD to see if she becomes more steady with her moods.
