so much lost time! but I'm not giving up!

oh sparkpeople,

it has been too long. thanks so much for those of you who checked in on me (and friended me!) while I was MIA!! You are the reason spark is so amazing!!

At first, in August, I made excuses because I had just moved, was organizing life, trying to meet people, getting used to being in school again, and getting used to living at home with my dad after being an independent adult.

But now...4 months later, there's no excuse!! I've finally settled, made my friends, AM DONE WITH FIRST SEMESTER and I'm still where I started when I moved here!

I just went to the dr.'s office yesterday, and officially weigh in at 195. The last time I was in the dr's office was June 20th, officially 6mo ago, and I weighed in at 193. I'm 2 pounds heavier than 6 months ago, and I should be down 30 pounds! ahh!! I checked the weight tracker, and I should be 40 pounds down & at my goal weight by now according to that little red line :(

I can't believe how much time I've lost!! I'm definitely happy that I haven't gained more than 2 pounds, but I'm sad that I squandered all that time. I started this journey in Feb, and by June had lost 27 pounds. Since June I worked out consistently up until around November (go figure...), but since August I made good decisions about what I ate, but I haven't really cared how MUCH I ate.

Goodness! Okay, I have 2 months before my 1 year sparkiversary--so I AM BACK WITH A VENGEANCE!!! I need to get back into the daily habit of tracking and exercising...I let myself slip and stop exercising as much the past 1.5 months. (hence no fitness awards! :((( )

Commitment. Daily commitment. Because I'm worth it. I WILL see a change in that scale by February 15th. that's a promise to myself.

    I know it would have been nice to lose weight over the last 6 months, but you basically maintained. That's fabulous! I'm in the same boat as you, except overall you lost more weight than I did. I'm hoping to kick it into high gear and drop at least 5 pounds before my Sparkversary at the end of Feb.

    Glad to see you back! emoticon

    So good to have you back!
    Trust me, you aren't the only one who has slipped. I have too and that's why I hadn't even posted an update to WMS because I didn't want to waste anyone's time (too embarrassed, lol). Let's nip this in the bud and come back stronger than ever. Fighting!

    Welcome back! You can get there! I've been in that boat (several times) where I drop off the face of SP. :) But it's always here for us in the end. LOL

    Good luck!

    I know how you feel, I was in a similar situation when I moved in August too. I just decided a month ago that I need to get back on track full force with Spark People and it has been a great month!

    emoticon Let's keep moving forward towards our goals! You are definitely worth it!

    You can do it!

    Remember yes you could have already been at goal, but you also could have been heavier as well.

    I am sure you will see progress by February!
