Getting back on track....

Hi, my name is Wendy.
I came to sparkpeople for the nutrition tracker and I stayed for the support. I know that I am mentally and physically strong enough to be living the life I want to live. I just need to get with it! I got married in 2004 and basically turned into a baby making machine. I had 3 children in under 4 years. The changes to my body were depressing and daunting. It seemed like I would never be able to get MY body back. I've realized that if I keep living with that ...

I was looking at my sparkpage and re-read my original about me (above) I have come to realization that I am so much stronger than I have EVER given myself credit for. I have lost 25 pounds since Jan and 29 pounds since joining sparkpeople last year. People ask me how I've done it and honestly it's simple. Once I made my mind up, the pieces have fallen into place. I hope YOU are achieving your goals as well. Remember you can do it!

I worried about the day(s) when I would no longer log in to sparkpeople and track my calories. I worried about gaining and putting myself on the back-burner. Unfortunately those days came this past fall. I wasn't holding myself accountable and I slipped. I fell into old habits and I just about slunk into a depression. For some reason, that always happens around the holidays :( BUT I picked myself up from my bootstraps and I kicked those negative feelings to the curb! I am back baby!
Looking forward to a positive and healthy year. Mind Body and Soul.

Wow, where has this year gone? This has been a happy and rewarding year, however my weight loss goals fell to the wayside sometime near spring Ha. Oops. I slowly packed on lbs over the summer :( I recently started a weight loss challenge with some friends and I have made some cuts to my portions and added walking back into my regimen. I'm not looking to lose a bunch, but I want to fit into my clothes again! Grrr

Hi Wendy,
I did the same thing and fell off the boat and face of the planet for the holidays but am back also. Unfortunately I also gained back the 5 pounds I had lost, ugh frustrating! But, now is the perfect time to start again. Good luck to you and stay in touch!

It's okay that you've been away and gained some weight back, we all do it! I have been doing the same for the last 2 weeks. I don't want to step on the scale this week at all, but I need to fess up to the damage. Hope you are getting on track now! Did you have a good Hallowen?

I just found your page and your pictures are so motivating! You look awesome & I read what your info about how you just changed your mindset & the rest fell in place and I know that is so true with me. Just thought I'd leave you a comment to let you know what I was thinking when I stumbled along your page. emoticon
