I have to admit, I got tired of spending so much time at the computer. So, I eliminated SPARKPeople from my life for a few months. My journey was a discouraging one. To begin with, I checked out a weight loss center. It would have cost me some big bucks...but I was REJECTED. At first, I was really glad, because I do NOT have the money to throw into a weight loss center, or a gym. I am one of those people who LOVE my lowpaying job. And, I mean LOW-PAYING! I do alot for many, but the pay is such that I would be on food stamps if I was on my own. Well, back t the weight loss center rejection. Being rejected from anything is tough. I thought it might take me a Caribou coffee drink and a slice of dark chocolate cake with white chocolate drizzle to overcome the rejection. I was told I was rejected because I have a slow metabolism and because I do not eat meat. Okay, fine. I skipped the cake and went for tea at Caribou. I was happy that I saved my money. So, a few weeks later, I was enticed to join Weight watchers. I gained 6 pounds my first week. The dreaded 6 is still sitting on my waistline. (Or where my waistline should be...) Anyhow, after 3 weeks, I dropped out. I know I can do this without spending the money to join a group! So, here I am. I have come full circle and realized that I AM IN CHARGE of ME. I CAN do this. I CAN take better care of myself and lose the weight I want to lose. I'll keep my highly stressful low-paying job. I will continue to feel good about what I do and how I do it. I will start taking better care of me. NOW! I AM BACK SparkPeople! Back on Track!
