Hello Fellow Sparks : )
It has been awhile since I have been active on Sparkpeople. Without any real explanation or excuse, I have gained thirty plus pounds in less than five months. Doctors have no idea and trust me I have searched everywhere for a reason. Never the less, here I am at almost 200lbs! This is the heaviest I have ever been without a baby in my tummy.
Well I spent a month of just pure shock and devestaton. I worked so hard at my weight loss and maintaining it. I felt defeated. So for the first time in four years I took a month off of everything, dieting, exercise etc. I gained an additional five pounds and finally pushed to the limit.
So I am here but I am not staying here. I got approval from my doctor to begin exercising again. Today ( 11/7/11) I started again. I woke up this morning and walk/jogged in my living room for about forty minutes. It felt good but I know I have so much further to go.
Since I have lost weight before, I am determined to do it again. I can do it! This time I will document my journey better than the first time so I can help others. So much of this is a lifestyle change and the basics I already have, a good healthy diet with five fruits and veggies a day and no white food ( rice, bread etc.) I now have to focus on increasing my water, exercise etc.

Yep thats the plan, eat better, exercise and continue to pray for discipline : )

    Hi, Soror! Thanks for stopping by my page. I see you're out for the summer, too! I am definitely going to enjoy mine; enjoy yours, too.

    I'm at it again. Trying to concentrate and stay on top of this weight loss thing. Pray for me!!! emoticon

    You asked about some good reads. Have you read any of Stacy Hawkins Adams's books? She is awesome. Check out her website at

    Thanks for stopping by. Good luck to you on your first 5K. I think my focus will be running the whole thing, not just coming in at a great time.
