    You were right to complain, their treatment of you was disgusting!! Unfortunately though it is too often the way of the world today!!
Never mind - look towards a beautiful new bathroom, and keep those positives in mind - always!!.

HOW DO YOU GET THE SPARK BACK?

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

I HAD SO MUCH SPARK AND MY MIND WAS SO SET WHEN I STARTED SPARK 2 YEARS AGO!
I LOST IT SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY AND NEED IT BACK AND SOON!
I HAVE SAID THIS OVER AND OVER AGAIN!BUT IF I DON'T DO SOMETHING SOON I WILL BE RIGHT BACK TO SQUARE ON! I LOST 30 POUNDS HERE ON SPARK AND HAVE PUT MOST OF IT BACK ON!AND I AM NOT HAPPY WITH THAT AT ALL. I BLOG DAILY TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE BUT ONLY HAVE SAID I EXERCISE DAILY AND HAVE NEVER MISSED A DAY AND DRINK AT LEAST OR MORE SOMETIMES OF MY WATER THAT SPARK SAY'S WE SHOULD DRINK 8-8OZ GLASSES A DAY. AND I EAT 5FRUITS AND VEGGIES A DAY AND SOMETIMES MORE ON THEM I USUALLY STAY IN MY CALORIES RANGE BUT HAVE GONE OVER PROBABLY ABOUT 8 TIMES IN TWO YEARS.
ALL OF WHICH I THINK IS REALLY GOOD. AND SPARK SAY'S DON'T BEAT YOUR SELF UP. WELL I THINK AT THIS POINT I NEED TO.
I HAVE ALWAYS SAID IT'S WHAT I EAT TODAY ON THE CHAT'S WE WERE TALKING ABOUT IT AND I HAVE BEEN VERY BAD!
I EAT PASTA,CHICKEN PARM HOAGIES,MAC AND CHEESE! I NEED TO STOP MY SELF AND NOW!
HOW DO I GET MY MIND SET AND GET THAT SPARK BACK?HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    CHAR - YOU'VE TAKEN THE FIRST STEP TO GETTING YOUR SPARK BACK. YOU'RE ACKNOWLEDGING THAT YOU NEED TO DO BETTER AND YOU KNOW YOU CAN DO BETTER. NOW YOU'VE JUST GOT TO SET YOUR MIND ON YOUR GOAL. LIFE HAS IT'S UPS & DOWNS... SURE. BUT FOR THE MOST PART IF WE WORK TOWARDS GETTING HEALTHY...(EATING HEALTHIER, EXERCISING, DRINKING WATER, LOGGING IT ALL) THEN IT SHOULD WORK. IF IT'S NOT WORKING... SHAKE THINGS UP A LITTLE & DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT!
STICK WITH IT GIRLFRIEND. I HAVE FAITH IN YOU!

LOVE, MARLA

    Hey there! I can totally relate to what you're going through... I've been on Spark for almost 2 years now. When I first joined I lost 35 pounds pretty easily. Then my work outs tapered off and my eating got less and less healthy. Now I've gained back about 15 of those pounds and have been back to Spark off and on for more than a year to try and get back in the groove!!!

I'm not sure what keeps me coming back, but I know that the first time I lost the weight I just had this mindset that I was GOING to be healthier and there was no question about it. There was a confidence and motivation that I somehow lost... this time around I'm starting to feel it again, the drive and determination to succeed. I'm not unsure about things and I'm not questioning myself or trying to talk myself out of things.

I'm not sure if this helps you... probably not really. I just wanted you to know that I'm feeling the same way!!! I preordered the Spark book and I'm hoping that will help me on my way as well! Good luck!
