Sparkaversary start-over

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

So since my 1 year Sparkaversary is this week on the 20th, I decided that I would start a "do-over", (or do a "start-over"? oh well) I'm beginning again. Illness has a tendency of slowing down weight loss. All the added medications, as well as the lack of physical activity, not only slowed me down, but sent me back to where I was before I started up here. April 20, 2010 I was I am restarting at 160. It seems overwhelming to say the least, & makes me feel a tad bit frustrated as well. Don't get me wrong, I do not deserve to be 140 right now, but not ALL of it is my fault. Much of it is medication & health issues.

But alas, at any rate, I am recommitting. I have posted my current weight as verified by the Weight Watcher scale this morning, and that is where I shall begin again!! 15 pounds to knock down before I achieve my SP low weight of 145, & 40 - 45 pounds total to achieve my goal. I'd prefer it to be only 25 pounds, but, it is what it is! I'm glad you are all here & I cannot wait to see the numbers start moving!!
Love, Janet

    You go girl!! Love your page background. Mary, our Mother. Hope your spark is rekindled and your journey is a smooth one. I will start over on my Sparkversary in July if I am not to my goal, which I already changed once! Hang in there.

    Having a redo or a start over is a good thing. Especially when there are good reasons such as you have. Every day is a new day, so why keep reviewing the old when you can start fresh!
Congratulations on your new Beginning! emoticon

    Don't give up, just try your best. Sometimes a restart is the best thing.
