Well almost a year ago now I started this weight loss journey. And I did well. I lost about 13 lbs, worked out regularly, tracked everything I ate, kept (mostly) within my calorie range, started getting those "are you losing weight" questions (loved them!) and was doing well. I was so proud of myself, and feeling so healthy and strong. AND THEN...I just stopped it all. I was working too much overtime, and stressed out and trying to be SUPERMOM at home and SUPERWIFE for my husband and SUPERNURSE at work. And that left no time or motivation or even desire to track what I eat, or exercise, or even care about sparkpeople. And this has gone on for the last 5 months. ENOUGH. I can't do everything, and I can't save everybody, and I can't be everywhere at once. So now I need to focus on me. And start my sparkpeople program again, for ME. I have already messed up today, with the horrible breakfast I ate. But oh well, instead of saying "I'll start back tomorrow with it", I am going to start back on track with the next meal. And I guess I need to take this one meal at a time and one exercise session at at time. And not try to do everything for everyone, and not try to ease my stress (which will always be there in some form) with food. So hello again everyone here at sparkpeople, I am going to try this again and I'll be back in a couple of hours to track my workout when I get home from the gym!
