A Year Later & Nothing on My Profile is Relevant

I'm back!
I've been gone from Sparkpeople for a good year. Whenever I become hooked on SP I do lose weight so I'm not sure what my problem was.
I just looked at my page and EVERYTHING is different!
I used to see the other half of my blended family only on weekends and holidays. Now, after seven years, we have moved in together *insert panicked scream*. I am about to be 42 and have never really lived with a man before lol There is a LOT to adjust to and a lot of compromise going on daily. *his disgusting food choices area whole other blog entry*
I jumped back on here just after Christmas at 197lbs. Today about a week later I have lost 3 pounds WHOOOT!
I no longer want to move my stomach like Ciara lol BUT I do want to see everything I need to see on myself when I look down LOL
I no longer own my childcare business of ten years. For the first time in over ten years I now have a boss. Very stressful to not be able to just do what I see needs to be done and even more stressful to not be paid on time. *again, a separate blog post I suppose*
I got an Xbox Kinect, Zumba and Just Dance 3 game for the holidays so now it's just a matter of getting 5 men out of my way so I can actually do them. They are FUN!!! And sooo worth it for me to irritate them and kick them off the TV so I can get on. Finding a healthy level of selfishness is something I need to work on.

Well, I'm not great at blogging..I don't really get the format and feel like I'm rambling. If someone has helpful hints I am excited to read them!

Here's to not allowing depression, stress, or life changes being the reason for my gaining weight. I used SP to lose 53 pounds before (I have gained most of it back now while being away from SP) and I know that I can do this again and I believe I know better now how to keep it communicating and reaching out to friends and SP for support!

    I knew I'd find you back here! Blogging has no purpose other then to see your thoughts. You can write for you, or write for others. If your blogging your not eating!

    Good to see you back! WOW! Lots of life changes in the past year!
    You can do this, you have to put you into your schedule. Even if it means putting your workout time on an actual calendar!
    As you said, you did it once, you can do it again!

    You go girl. Kick those men off and do your stuff. Even if it means getting up a bit earlier. If you do that then you've done it for the day and you don't have the stress of battle of the TV.
    There is no format to blogging. It's just and online diary so ramble away. I love the support you get from blogging and no matter how you are feeling there is always someone feeling the same or with the same problem. So..... keep online. emoticon
