Here I am again trying to get back to goal...
I met my goal of 50 lbs and hurriedly regained 30 lbs. I have started this journey so many times, but not being a quitter, I am at it again!
I am down 9 lbs since I have restarted, and hope to continue on to lose the remainder.
I live alone and it is difficult to limit myself when eating is so easy to calm the nerves, but I am determined once again to win this battle.
So here goes...

Can August really be going so fast? Can we be over half way through 2013?
My life seems to be whizzing by. My DGD turns 29 tomorrow, her brother will be 24 the next day and better than that, DGD's daughter, Sloan, is now 3 1/2 and it seems only yesterday she was sleeping and eating only.
I did get back into some things I let go after DH passed away. I started watching Charles Stanley on TV and quit going to church. This year I found a church I enjoyed and felt at home in and joined and now I have been blessed. I also shoved myself out the door and joined Senior Center and have made many nice friends. They will have water color classes next week, but I can't go as it is wrong days for me.
My DGGD will be going to kindergarten next year and then, the Good :Lord willing, I will continue with my quilting classes and knitting classes. I m excited about what I have learned so far.
As for my diet, I am still plugging along and one day, it will all come together.
And before long, it will be 2014...hope time slows down some and these years do not become so short!!!

Since my retirement in 2009, I have vowed I would go to the Senior Center and join so I could make new friends. You know the tale of all good intentions and and where they went.
Last week wth the whole-hearted support of all my lovely Spark friends, I got up on Monday mornng and went to the Senior Center and joined. There I met another group of caring and loving friends. I m so glad I went. And I shall now be going every Monday until my GGD, Sloan, who is 2 1/2 and newly potty-trained, can go to the nursery. Then I will try to go at least 3 tmes a week.
I lost my DH almost 6 years ago, and have done nothing to make a place for myself among those like myself. It was interesting that there I met a lady who had gone to the same junior high and high school as I had in the same years and gradulated the same year. How small is our world?
Ths had made me feel like I can continue this journey with some purpose.
As an update to my last blog, January 1, 2013, I am continuing on. I have lost 9 pounds. Not a great amount for almost 2 months, but I am at least being consistent.
So....now I have put two long intended journeys under my belt. The next one is to find a church where I can meet another group of caring and loving friends. I have not attended church since I lost my DH and it is time!

I am sick of this...and sick of me! Now I know better. I lost 50 lbs when I first joined Spark almost 5 years ago, and here I am with a weight gain for last year. I don't like myself. I have started so many ways to lose weight and it never "takes".
Tired of gaining, tired of looking at my fat self in the mirror, tired of rearranging my many different sizes of clothes in my closet, and tired of letting my friends know I have no will power.
Here's the big problem. I wander in and out of the kichen "after hours". Therein is my biggest problem. Admittedly, I eat more calories during "after hours snack time" than at me al time and also admittedly, i don't ever count those calories. What the hell is wrong with me?
And then there is the thing of not getting enough sleep. I never knew that lack of sleep can sabotage your weight...I have always stayed up late no matter what time I had to get up. Sometimes only getting 4-5 hours of sleep.
So there you have it. Get to bed earlier, and stay out of the kitchen after 8 pm. And if I mess up and go to the kitchen, I commit to counting those calories. It will at least make me aware.

I have signed up for the Fall 5% Challenge which will be my second season with them...I really love this team and although I did not do very well last time around, I truly hope to do well this time. I have just not put my mind to it and that is what I plan on doing beginning October 6th!
