Hello! It's been along time since I've been active (on a regular basis) on Sparkpeople. Years ago I lived in KY. At that time I lost a total of 100 pounds. Now a few years later I live in NE and gained all the weight back and more. Somewhere along the way I lost my motivation...but I feel the motivation slowly coming back. I'm counting calories again and exercising. It's harder this time around because I'm working full-time. Its hard to find the time to exercise but I'm doing it. I haven't loss any weight yet but I just started. When I was losing weight the first time I was fanatic about everything. I think now I'm just going with the flow. Counting my calories but if I have a cookie than so be it. I know my limitations. I was not happy with myself for gaining weight and then I got down on myself and I gained EVEN MORE weight. It took a while to get out of my funk. The moment that cause me to finally realized I needed to face the reality of my weight gain and start all over again - heavier this time. I was at the pool with my kids and went to go on a slide with my daughter and the slide attendant said jewelry is not allowed on the slide. I didn't have a watch or necklace on and said this to the teenager - he looked at my wedding ring. I was like seriously? Ok...I'll take it off. I couldn't get the ring off. I TRIED and TRIED. I felt humiliated. I said dang it won't come off and laughed nervously. The teenager looked me up and down and said its not my problem you can't get it off. I walked back down the stairs and by daughter went down the slide by herself. My weight just affected my kids life. I cannot and will not have this happened. It's time I get off my ass and do here I am. :)

    My Christmas wish for you, my friend
    Is not a simple one
    For I wish you hope and joy and peace
    Days filled with warmth and sun

    I wish you love and friendship too
    Throughout the coming year
    Lots of laughter and happiness
    To fill your world with cheer

    May you count your blessings, one by one
    And when totaled by the lot
    May you find all you've been given
    To be more than what you sought

    May your journeys be short, your burdens light
    May your spirit never grow old
    May all your clouds have silver linings
    And your rainbows pots of gold

    I wish this all and so much more
    May all your dreams come true
    May you have a Merry Christmas friend
    And a happy New Year, too

    I read on the "How Motivated" thread that you listed yourself as a 5. I thought I'd stop by and send just one more thought your way.
