Starting over is not a bad thing.

I started spark in december of 2010 at 326. I was doing good until my stepfather passed away in July '11. Even when he was in the hospital i was maintaining 277. After he passed things got weird for my weight. We had 3 more deaths in the family after that. I stopped paying attention to my weight. For almost 6 weeks i did not get on the scale. When i did, i woke up to how bad i had really been doing. I was back up to 321. So now i am struggling to get back into the groove of things. ...

So yes i am starting over from the beginning again. Re teaching myself to measure my food, drink almost nothing but water, and getting moving again.

My Goals:
Ok i am starting my goals over again. I have gotten almost up to 326 again. It has been taking me a bit to get going again. I am not gonna make such sharp goals this time.

I want to be atleast down to 300 pounds by the end of the 30 something w/ 100# to lose BLC 20. That ends in March.

Then i would LIKE to be down to 280 by summer solistic (June 21).

Those are my biggest goals right now.

Wish me luck!!!!!

My Program:
I am doing the sparks program of watching my calories and other things that go with the food.

I am trying to do aerobic at the minium of 3 times a day. Arthritis in the hips make this hard but i am working through it anyway.

Drinking pretty much only water, cause i know the pop and tea have sugar and that keeps the weight on for me.

Personal Information:
Moved back to my home town. The stuff on the farm didn't work out. But moving has gotten rid of alot of stress. I hope this aids me on my weight lose journey.

Other Information:
I am a big Laurell K. Hamilton, Anita Blake, NUT. I love how she writes. Excited for her next book to come out in June.

If I decorate my house perfectly with plaid bows, strands of twinkling lights and shiny balls,
but do not show love to my family, I'm just another decorator.

If I slave away in the kitchen, baking dozens of Christmas cookies,
preparing gourmet meals and arranging a beautifully adorned table at mealtime,
but do not show love to my family, I'm just another cook.

If I work at the soup kitchen, carol in the nursing home and give all that I have to charity,
but do not show love to my family, it profits me nothing.

If I trim the spruce with shimmering angels and crocheted snowflakes,
attend a myriad of holiday parties and sing in the choir's cantata
but do not focus on Christ, I have missed the point.

Love stops the cooking to hug the child.
Love sets aside the decorating to kiss the spouse.
Love is kind, though harried and tired.
Love doesn't envy another's home that has coordinated Christmas china and table linens.
Love doesn't yell at the kids to get out of the way.
Love doesn't give only to those who are able to give in return
but rejoices in giving to those who can't.
Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails. Video games will break, pearl necklaces will be lost,
golf clubs will rust, but giving the gift of LOVE will endure.

I am starting over too, but I had nothing that kept me from following my program, just a desire to eat the foods I had limited. I admire your starting again. Weighing and measuring sure help. emoticon
