Bless me, Sparkers, for it has been nearly two years since my last activity on this site, and in that time I have let all the good habits slip, cancelled my membership to Curves, stopped taking care of myself, and slid into a pretty unhappy groove. When it started to affect how I felt about my husband, our life together, and even being married, I knew I had to change something. And that something was ME. Because I love my husband, and we have a good life together. We are a team. We're just pretty lazy, and tend to bring out the bad habit in each other.
So we joined a new gym ( www.stevenashsportsclub.
), and I signed on for some sessions with a Personal Trainer, and I dragged my butt back over here and started getting back into it, because it worked for me, back when I was doing it last time. I lost 13 pounds, and felt better and I'm smart enough to recognize success when I see it. (Yes, I got lazy. And complacent. And stopped measuring food. And then stopped tracking food. And then stopped thinking particularly about food. And I regained 10 of that 13 pounds.)
I'm hoping that my hubs and I will motivate each other and keep each other accountable. I hope we don't encourage each other to fall back into bad habits, as we have in the past. We are too young to be so unhealthy.
