I want to say hello to everyone first off.
I need to back up to 01/2008 I signed up on but did not get with the program. Then in September of 2009 I made a life changing decision, to start taking care of me. I have spent most of my life taking care of my children, his children and several nieces and nephews that we raised. That was over a 16 year period with my second husband. Oh and we cant forget taking care of darling husband. I had gotten to the point finally in my life when all the kids were grown and gone, that I needed to be a little selfish and take care of me. I joined SP and between September and December 17th of 2009 I had lost 36 lbs.
Well in the middle of December my perfect world kind of fell apart, and SP was not my main focus any longer. (Which I should have never lost that focus.) After lengthy discussion with my husband we have decided to file for divorce ( we do remain friends) if not now then it definitely would be later and we would NOT be friends. We decided that he could take a month to move out and get situated. That was a very hard month. This may sound funny to some but there are still feelings there. You can not be with someone for 16 yrs and walk away emotionless. Well he has finished moving out and we are all good.
Now the other thing. Back in April of 2009 I started a new job, completely different from insurance that I had worked in for 15 years. With the new job I had taken I had become the person I hate, ( that pesky bill collector that calls during dinner) I work in the finance business. I loved the people I worked with just not the job, I had decided to give the job a chance for 1 year. Well I had an offer come across this last Monday that would put me back into the insurance business and I accepted it.
Even though I have not been on here in almost 2 months I did continue to watch what I ate, but no exercise did not have the ummmpphhh or the want to's to do what I should have been doing. I did continue to lose weight but not at the rate I was before. So now i am back into the game and I do plan to win this game. Just like the New Orleans Saints winning the Super Bowl
for the 1st time.
I know with the help of Spark People.com I can continue on the journey with a fresh outlook and new determination. So if I still have some spark friends let me know you are still on here and how you have been doing. I am anxiously waiting to hear from you guys and gals.
I know this is a little long winded, but I just had to get it off my chest. Now for my new re-beginning.
Good Luck on your own journeys.

Well today was the weigh in... Well I figure at the rate I was going I would hit my 30 lbs today, hhhmmmmm. Well it goes to show, or at least shows me. It pays to exercise. I was only able to exercise 2 times this week. I know I know there should be no excuses as to not exercise.
Things were super hectic this past week and I only dropped 2 lbs, but it was 2lb down instead of up. I am thankful that the scale went down instead of up considering I did not stick to my routine this past week. I was hoping for the 30lb mark, but I will get there next time.
To all my friends out there sorry I have not been on and trying to encourage, inspire,support and comment like I should have. I am back on schedule finally. I hope everyone is doing
well on their journey
Well thanks to all and I wish you all the best of luck on your journeys for the next week.
Have a great Spark day.

Well as all my friend here on Spark People know my weigh ins are on Thursday.
Well I am giving myself a WOOP WOOP and WOO HOO and a YEA ME....
I jump on the scale and was worried because I ate a donut hole yesterday along with a very small sausage and cheese kolache which guess what I could not find them on the food tracker so i over estimated them with what was there. I have a tendency to do that if I cant find what I am looking for.
Well when I signed on here this morning the first thing that came up was my reports (cals fat, etc), my reports look like a mountain range.. I feel I am eating healthy foods, and when I run a report at the end of the day most categories a are just below my goals, most times. I don't feel like I am eating excessive things, well except on those off track days that we all have. I am still losing weight each week all though that might look a little strange on a report 2 lbs one week 7 lbs one week 3 lbs one week. I do feel much better than I have in a long time.
THANKS TO ALL MY SPARK FRIENDS AND THE WEB SITE.
I owe everyone big
Since Sept 17th= ( 8 weeks )= ( 3 months) woo hoo I have lost 27 lbs next week I feel I will reach a 30lb goal.. I have not been this weight in over probably 8 years if not longer. I am over joyed about my weight loss.
IT FEELS GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can not thank everyone here enough for all your encouragement, inspiration, advice and caring thoughts and comments. Thank you Thank you Thank you....
I do have a special thanks to Spark Guy and all the team that put this website together and keep it up and running. Some of us are not financially able to pay for internet weight loss sites or join those expensive gyms or hire a personal trainer. Thank you Thank you Thank you Spark Guy and Team
I hope all of you have a wonderful, beautiful, great Spark Day.
Good Luck on your journeys. I know here we can all do it and accomplish what we all set out to do.
