It's been a year and a half since my last blog. Wow, so much has happened in that year and a half. I got fat again (surprise) and decided to try weight watchers. After months and months I only lost 20 lbs...I expected to look like Jennifer Hudson. So, I gave up and got fatter and fatter. Well this week I topped the scale at 230 and thought...mmm...this is bad. Unfortunately, it seemed as though I had tried everything and nothing was working. And then it hit me...I need to relight my spark!!
So - here I am again at 227, tracking my water intake, my calories, my exercise (or lack there of). I have discovered that my job pins me to my chair all day. The stress level is at about an 8 most days where as my other job was at about a 2. So, I needed to do something that would allow small changes over a period of time. Spark has always been that place to go and that program to do. I have friends here and I get encouragement here. I have my blogs and challenges - why in the world did I not just stick with it before??
Okay, now that I'm finished beating myself up...I'm really excited and can't wait to see what I do this time around.
