Starting Over is Bittersweet

Monday, March 07, 2011

I was a faithful Sparker about a year or so ago. So what happened? Life! My work hours increased to 11-12 a day. There was no time left for exercise or healthy cooking. I know, I know....excuses, excuses. I'll be the first to admit it.

I started Sparking June 2010 with my highest weight of 252. I was faithful with exercise/healthy eating, getting down to 190 by December 2010. Well, it's March 2011 and here I am at 215 pounds. I guess I need to be grateful that I didn't regain it all, only 30 pounds, half of it.

A couple of weeks ago I joined Weight Watchers Online, and am enjoying the program, although not overjoyed with the weight loss so far (I've only lost 5 pounds since 2/24 - 11 days). Hmmm, I guess that's not so bad really.

But I really missed SP. The support here is amazing. So I'm going to continue WW Online and Spark at the same time. I will do this. I have to do this. I threw out all of my size 22s & 24s.....gotta get back into those 16-18s by summer. I hate squeezing this 20 butt in 18s. Wish me luck!

    Well, emoticon back!!! So many of us have been in this same exact spot! I've done that TWICE before......I'm a little slower to learn but learn I did.....that it doesn't work that way!! Anyway, what's important is that your back and still ahead! You have 30 less pounds to lose than you did last time! That's a HUGE PLUS!! You can be back in those 16-18's by summer!!!
    AND 5 pounds in 11 days is absolutely AWESOME!!! I didn't even lose 5 pounds in FEBRUARY!!LOL.......Keep up the great work!!
