Getting Back to Spark and The Basics


Saturday, May 05, 2012

I have so missed not being on Spark for the last several months and this has impacted greatly my healthy lifestyle.

I think we all can identify with situations arising in our lives that cause us to lose focus and not follow through with the goals we have set for living healthier.

A few months ago many personal situations prevented me from logging into spark faithfully. It began ever so sly with the onset of winter and increase of depressive symptoms and soon became full blown neglect after the passing of my aunt and need for me to help my uncle adjust to living alone after 60 years of marriage.

I have learned that my time spent on Spark directly correlates with me feeling better both emotionally and physically.

Ty - for the understanding and welcome back I have received.

    Sometimes going through the rough times like you have had, it can be a poignant reminder of how marvelous SP is - not only the tools but also the camaraderie of the membership - Good to have you back :-)

    Hi Nancy
A warm feeling went through me last night when I saw your update. You have been in my thoughts everyday and knowing that you had some serious issues come up.
The important thing is you desire to live a healthy life and know how much Spark helps that to unfold.
I am glad you are back, take one day at a time knowing that you have so many friends to support you.

    Hope things continue to get better for you Nancy. i had the same reaction from Xmas, I just couldn't seem to care os i gained back 8 pounds. Just missing my mom and everything changed for the holidays but I kept trying to shake it off and am doing pretty well now. It takes a lot of focus on caring for oneself and taking it day by day. emoticon back to sparks, back in the fold with friends, take care, Georgine emoticon
