The Road to Success is Always Under Construction!

Hello! I am 46 years old and have been fighting my weight forever. I have lost and gained the same 50 lbs. for the last ten years. In fact, I lost 60 pounds with spark people in 2010 and maintained the loss for over a year. Then life happened and I slowly gave up the healthy habits I worked so long and hard to create.

When I stopped tracking my food I started gaining back the weight. I wish I could get to a place where I don't have to track my calories and don't have to think ...
Hello! I am 46 years old and have been fighting my weight forever. I have lost and gained the same 50 lbs. for the last ten years. In fact, I lost 60 pounds with spark people in 2010 and maintained the loss for over a year. Then life happened and I slowly gave up the healthy habits I worked so long and hard to create.

When I stopped tracking my food I started gaining back the weight. I wish I could get to a place where I don't have to track my calories and don't have to think about my food constantly, but the sad truth is I will need to do this for the rest of my life to achieve my health goals.

Do I wish it were different? Yes. Does wishing make it different? No.

All I know is the more weight I gain the more disconnected I feel from my true self. I want to find myself again. I want to be healthy and I want to be happy. In other words I need a SPARK!

I did it before...I can do it again!

If you want to see my previous spark journey I was formerly known by the spark people username PRINCESSNURSE and was a spark motivator. When I regained the weight I felt too ashamed to restart with my old page, but I have decided that is silly. I need to own my struggles as well as my past success!

Onward and upward!
