Holy cow, it's been almost a year since I last wrote here. I started a 12-week Biggest Loser style contest this week at a local gym. I will not be training as part of a team-I am one of the "Independents" to sign up as the gym is too inconvenient for me to make it there more than once or twice a week. But one of my best friends is also taking part in it, and man, does it make a HUGE difference when you have someone there in the trenches with you! I always thought my weight loss was very personal & something I needed to do on my own-well, it's quite obvious that hasn't worked for me. As someone who abhors aking for help, I finally realized this is in area where I do need support & encouragement. I'll still be working out by myself the majority of the time, but now everyone I see on a daily basis-family, co-workers, some friends-know what I am doing and will hopefully be supportive. And having SparkPeople to add to the mix, I am more hopeful than I have been in years!
