Eleven weeks ago I joined SparkPeople. I have learned a lot here. I set my goals and am making friends (I hope). As I look at my goals, I realized that I was not focusing on one of them. I started this journey to become healthy, as well as to lose weight . So when I got on the scale this morning, and saw once again it had not moved at all, I was upset until I logged on here and re-read my goals. My main goal is to become healthier. I am back at the gym five nights a week which is a total turnaround from when I joined. My morning fasting blood sugar levels have gone from 180's to 130's. I am wearing a smaller size again. See two years ago, when I lost my mother, I also lost 30 pounds in four months with Weight Watchers. When I lost my father that December I started gaining it all back. I guess it was grief. This time I want to be healthy, to be around to see my granddaughter (who isn't here quite yet) grow up and be married with babies of her own. That is what this journey is all about. I am doing it for me. Weight is not the main issue this time. I am really learning to love myself and to be proud of what I accomplish in life. And I thank this site for that insight.
