I've been away from Sparkpeople for about 4 months. During those 4 months, I failed my Senior MIF skating test, tried to keep practicing in order to test again, realized that testing was making me crazy and causing me to fall back into disordered eating, realized skating wasn't worth what it was doing to me and my family, officially decided to quit skating, decided I didn't care if I gained weight, gained 15 pounds, remembered that I'll be on a cruise in August, and decided to start dieting again so that I can feel good on the cruise. Oh yeah, and I moved from Minnesota to Indiana.
So here I am again, and I want to lose even more weight than before. But the difference this time is that I'm giving myself 5 months to lose 20 pounds, rather than trying to lose 10 pounds in a month like before. So I've got a lot to lose, but plenty of time to do it in a healthy way.
