I am happy to be back on SP. I had occassion to read blog posts or check in to see what people were doing, but I didn't commit to using SP fully and consistently. I am doing some new things to help me continue to transition to a healthier lifestyle and I am back to use SP in a balanced way. I plan to track my food and perhaps my exercise, too. I bought a step counter and used it, but when I exercised I learned what it means to be out of touch with your body and how painful it can be to 'overdo it' (based on past exercise behavior, it wasn't overdoing it, but THAT exercise was 50+ lbs ago, and I've had a VERY long stretch of being incapacitated and inactive). Being gentle with myself is not something I've known how to do very well in the past, but I'm better at it now and have plans for continued growth in this and many other areas. Hello to all my sparkpals. I've missed you and thought about you often. I read back through my old blogs just so I could read your loving messages and feel your support right from the beginning of this new start. Yeah freedom! See you on the message boards and in blogs--yours and mine.
