I was doing well on Spark People when I first joined in August 2011. I was finally able to break the plateau that I had hit regarding my weight. Exercise by itself just wasn't doing it for me anymore and the weight was creeping back on, although I was doing 3 miles plus on the gym treadmill on a near-daily basis, until that unfortunate visit to my incompetent, former podiatrist. Unable to exercise, I stumbled upon Spark people and I began to lose weight again, to the approval of my physicians. I hit a roadblock when I went overseas for two weeks and was unable to continue Spark People. I never got back into the rhythm and the rest was history until today. I have decided that I have to get out of my comfort zone and make a renewed effort to become healthier. This time, no matter what, I won't fall off the wagon. I'll find a way to continue tracking my calories and be responsible for my health. Today is the first day of the rest of my life.
