Continuing on the Journey

I thought it was time to freshen my information. I found Spark People in 2009 but ignored it. Then I was ready to look at it again in 2010. Like many, I didn't jump all in. I poked around on the site for the entire month of January and truly started in February 2010. That year I lost 20 pounds and had 5 more to go to hit my weight loss goal. So close!

Like so many, I gained half my weight back when I became sporadic in following the steps that had worked so well for me. It's ...

Like so many, I gained half my weight back when I became sporadic in following the steps that had worked so well for me. It's hard to know just what the problem was - was I lazy, or was it simply I didn't want to lose weight as much as I wanted to eat whatever I wanted (I believe it was the later)? I regained 10 pounds and have held onto that weight with a little effort on my part.

So, I'm back at it again. I've changed a few things up because this plateau is not where I want to live the rest of my life. Paying attention to the nutritional aspect of my weight loss more closely than ever before. Making sure I keep moving my body. I have great plans for 2015! By the end of the year I will see these last 12 pounds GONE!

Thanks so much for the blog comment about my December calendar. It was such a turning point mentally when I decided NOT to use the last month of the year as an excuse to go crazy and eat whatever I wanted. Yes, it will be more challenging than probably most other months, but that doesn't mean it's IMPOSSIBLE. I totally dreaded the idea of starting another new year being bummed about my weight and having to start my weight loss goals all over again in January (along with so many other people), and just decided to get the ball rolling now! I'm so glad I did, and I'm so glad that it's been inspirational to others reading my blog. So far, so good. I let myself have some pizza tonight, but it's all about progress, not perfection, right? :) Thanks again for the comment and best wishes for a great December and great start to 2015! :)

This sounds dramatic, but I had some teary eyes at your comment. Thank you so much. It feels so good to get affirmation from people you like & respect --- just to hear that yeah, it's been a hellish year so far.

It has. But it feels better to be here and to be checking in again with you all. Thank you so much for the kind words on my blog. I can't tell you how much they meant to me.

Hey! Thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I am so grateful to know I have people still rooting for me, even if I pick up and disappear for YEARS!!!

It rings so true to hear that I've lost pieces of my heart. It's hard to lose pieces - but I can't lose myself. Thank you so much for your friendship and support. I feel like I'm coming home. :)
