Well here I am..still fighting the fight on this obstacle filled journey. December 2009 brought me my greatest success thus far....236 lbs...just 37 pounds away from being under 200 pounds for the first time in over a decade. I was ready, I was focused and confident, and then 2010 entered in a raging way. I was suddenly plagued with severe illness, a new and extremely stressful job, deaths of loved ones and last but not least, my own fears of failure and anxiety towards success led to my sabotage and derailment. I felt completely disconnected from my journey. I no longer felt or looked like that focused and determined person I had become throughout the year 2009. I was lost for a while and it has definitely taken me some time to get back but here I am...ready, focused, determined, humbled and prepared...prepared for the twists, turns and many detours I will have to endure to finally continue my journey. I look forward to reading and connecting with my fellow Sparkers who are all on the same beaten path, trying to reach success. God Bless and keep fighting!!!!
