I've been with SP for 4 years - to start with I found this site such a fantastic help, and with just little steps at a time, I lost over 40lb and felt great.

However, I am not sure where it all went wrong, but I've been really struggling over the last 6 months or so, and have undone all my hard work. Lost my motivation to exercise regularly, and find it hard to stick to the right food choices. When I have done things "right" for a few weeks, I've not seen the results I want and give up all too quickly!

For the last few months I've been dealing with a terrible family tragedy, with my sister taken ill, I've been so worried and upset, I've just not felt like getting back on track (see my recent blog for more details)

My sister has such a hard road to recovery ahead of her, that it puts my weight issues in perspective and makes me realise what a simple thing getting back on track should be compared to the hurdles she faces. She is showing such determination I feel so bad that I am not.

I am having real problems with time management at the moment with life being so incredibly busy, visiting my sister most weekends, working full time and spending time with the kids and hubby, I feel very tired and deflated and no "me" time for exercise and planning.

Already a few weeks into the Summer 5% challenge, and have really not devoted myself to it, however I must get myself in order and start making the time and moving forward. I will do it!
