I'm Back (Hopefully For Awhile!)

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

Well, what can I say??? Last year, I was going very strong and doing really well - I got to Level 11! I lost 7 lbs and was working out almost every day. But then, things happened (sickness, depression, vacations, stress of life) and, frankly, I just gave up.

Recently, some women in my church started a Bible Study called "Made To Crave" by Lysa TerKeurst, which has brought my issues with food to to forefront of my mind. I am in that place again where I really want to make a change. I have all the tools to do it, physically and intellectually, I just need the motivation and, more than that, the stick-to-it mentality.

I am a full-time working mom of 3 little ones (ages 3, 6 and 9) and I am TIRED all the time. I have a total of 108 pounds to lose and I am overwhelmed by that! emoticon

But I'm so sick of being a terrible example for my kids in the health department and I don't want to feel gross anymore.

I know SparkPeople works. I've succeeded on it before. And I intend to do so again.

    Welcome back!!!! Good for you to want to start over and go forward in your journey! Don't look at that whole 108lbs that you have to lose. That is way too overwhelming! Start small, setting 5 to 10lb goals at a time and you will be on your way to success! Make sure that you reward yourself, each time you hit that small goal, so you will keep moving in a positive direction!

    Glad to have you back! emoticon
