What was I afraid of???

Saturday, May 19, 2012

Well, good news is that week 2 of the second time around and I am still here going strong. After much procrastination I finally got up the nerve to log back on. Embarrassment and fear of not being welcomed by old Spark friends was partially why I didn't come back sooner. Fear that my Spark friends would think of me as a failure because I certainly felt like one. I did so well the 1st time around. I lost almost 70 lbs and felt sooo good. I don't really know what happened or why I gave up. I don't really remember saying "I give up". But after a year and a half I have gained back 2/3 of my loss. As of today I know what I need to do, I know the tools I need to get the job done, I know I cannot afford to let my guard down and I know that I should have gone to my friends for support instead of running away from them. So, as your wagons go by be ready for me to hop on knowing there is always room for one more.

    Glad I get to hop onto your wagon this month! emoticon

I know how difficult it is to start over again....but, you are not really going around in a circle, but you are higher on the spiral! You have not lost everything - you now have a better idea of what does and does not work for you. emoticon

This is a wonderful, supportive environment!

    I think if I don't jump back on the wagon with you, you are going to drag me along for 100 miles or so, aren't you? ;) emoticon

    I for one am thrilled you're back! If I wasn't a team leader I'm sure I would have left several times, LOL! Also through the months so MANY come and go. It's like having a whole new team every six months, haha!

Of course you're not a failure! We're talking weight loss here. Something that can't be "cured" but managed as best as we can.

    Everybody has been there... The important thing is to get back on track and reach your goal. Whats matters is the final result and soon your struggles from the initial moment will be forgotten. Good luck!
