That could be a question most of you will ask, when this entry shows up in your feeds.
Well. I was away for about half a year and today I was cleaning up my email and I found a registration note from SparkPeople.com and I wanted to log in. Not because I feel guilty for not being here (well at least for myself, I feel guilty for not being there for you, my amazing, amazing spark friends, who helped me so much!), but because I wanted to do a quick update post and explain why I was away.
I did not quit living healthy. I haven't gained a single pound and the number on my tracker is still correct. Okay, I didn't lose anything too, mostly because I quit running (because of shin splits and other muscle injuries), but I'm still eating healthy, still doing Jillian's 30DS from time to time and feeling happy. I plan to lose another 10 pounds this spring/summer, but I've realized what works for me (slow, slow and slow) and I know how to do it and I think I will do it outside of SP. Why? Well, my nutrition plan is now very specific because of some health issues and it's hard to track for me, because I don't live in USA and most of the things I have to eat are not on the tracker. Same goes to internet connection - I don't have so much time as I did last year.
But I wanted to tell SP thanks, I wanted to tell all of you, that I'm fine and healthy and haven't gained my weight back, that I'm still sparking in my own way and there's not enough words to tell how grateful I am, because not only I lost weight, but I learned to live. A year ago I was mostly sad and angry with my life, today I can say I love being me and I love my life.
P.S. I'm gonna try to read and find out what happened to my SparkFriends, I hope you all are still here and doing amazing. ♥
