Starting again

I "fell" off the wagon. So, to speak! I have never been good at keeping a journal...so keeping up with this site was difficult. However, I am ready to recommit!

Unfortunately I gained most of my weight back since Halloween. UGH! But I won't dwell on that anymore. I'm not perfect. I decided to update my goals and start again.

Here they are:

Weight before SparkPeople: 169
Starting Weight - 151

By January 18th - 149***I DID IT***

April 1st my husband asked for a divorce. April Fool's Day indeed! So, I once again found myself off track. I did not gain much weight back however. It was tempting to feel sorry for myself and say "I'll never do it"...but I am determined now more than ever. I WILL reach my goal. I reset my goals on Spark and reset my goal date for August! Here I go!

Thanks for the comment. The Lake of the Ozarks is beautiful and I can't wait to get back, lol. It's getting me through the days of winter, especially now that it's below 0 windchill and another chance of snow tomorrow :(

Thanks and have a good day!!

Hi, thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm going to try the sweet potato wedges as an alternative to fries thing next time I feel like fish and chips. :-)
