Okay, so I'm finally back on SparkPeople after a nine month break! Good grief, I could have given birth in that length of time! But since my kids are 21 and nearly 23, I'm glad that was NOT the case!
Anyway, I'm back and I'm doing well...had gotten out of hand and gained back a large chunk of weight. Since my initial large drop of weight, I'd gained back 40 pounds!!! (Not in the last nine months...over a longer period of time than that.) But I'm down 22 of those 40 since June 1st and motivated to lose the rest and then some!
I'm struggling the last couple of days with some sort of nerve pain. I have sciatica problems that usually start in the hip/buttock region and travel down to the ankle. But Thursday and Friday it started in the ankle and moved up! I can't get in to see the chiropractor until next week, so yesterday and today are the first days since June 1st that I haven't exercised. I've cut my food intake back a bit to make up for the more sedentary activity I'm doing until this gets worked out. I'm sure an adjustment will do wonders.
I'm feeling very motivated for the first time in a long, long time. I'm hoping to jump back into sparking regularly and reconnecting with my spark friends! I'm sorry I left you all for so long! Please know I still thought about you, but was in too much of a funk to sign in and see how you were doing. Very selfish, I know.
Anyway, I'm back! And glad to be here!
